IT Ibiza: Where Italy meets Ibiza

IT Ibiza: Where Italy meets Ibiza

Travel

IT Ibiza is an Italian restaurant on the Spanish Island of Ibiza situated in what could be referred to as the ‘Mayfair of Ibiza’. However this is not a fusion restaurant per se. It is a seafood restaurant with a menu of renowned two-Michelin-star chef, Gennaro Esposito. The menu transmits the flavours of the Mediterranean directly from the plate to the heart. Later on this year, they are going to open a subsidiary in Mayfair in London, but for now, let’s focus on Ibiza.

As mentioned, at IT Ibiza, renowned head chef Gennaro Esposito gently weds the essence of southern Italy to haute cuisine techniques via exquisite seasonal produce. The traditions of Italian family cooking emerge in an inspired menu of elegant and creative dishes. The location, the stunning restaurant and the food all make for an unforgettable experience.

IT Ibiza

All bread is baked in the restaurant, and the olive oil it is served with is a true treat and that alone would be reason enough to visit. It’s something to keep in mind in this ‘Mayfair of Ibiza’, which is surrounded by almost ten other Italian restaurants.

IT Ibiza

What distinguishes IT Ibiza from its Italian rivals is that the cuisine is rooted in the traditions of the Mediterranean. Every dish is developed to reflect their ethos of quality, creativity, tradition and innovation.

IT Ibiza

Sustainability is something that is highly valued at IT Ibiza, to the point where taste and quality surpass the importance of locally grown. Some ingredients just cannot be found on Ibiza and are thus flown in. With that said, the fish is bought from local fishermen every morning and it doesn’t get much more local or sustainable than that.

IT Ibiza

The IT Ibiza wine cellar is an impressive sight, fully visible from the tables. It contains a thoughtfully-curated selection of quality wines, champagnes, cavas, sakes and craft beer from around the world. Over eight hundred labels are at hand, focusing on the most prestigious growers.

The hardest part about Italian cooking is making the perfect tomato sauce – something IT Ibiza takes pride in serving. Made out of fresh Italian tomatoes (after all it is an Italian restaurant), this is as close to Italy as you’ll ever come.

The clinking of luxury yachts moored in the marina is the island’s natural wind chime. Across the rippling waters of the harbour, the majesty of Ibiza’s ancient walled city rises out of luminous sunshine.

As the sun sets, the view from IT Ibiza is just breathtaking with all of the colours of the pastel rainbow found in the Mediterranean sky. IT Ibiza is not just a restaurant. It is an experience combining people, music, location and of course, food.

    Oh my, I wish I can dine there! I’m a huge fan of mediterranean food and the fact that there’s a view is a bonus! I always choose tomato sauce over anything when it comes to pasta so I’m sure I would’ve devoured that dish! Thank you for sharing and so glad you had a great meal and experience 🙂

    Oh my you are killing me by these scrumptious food pictures! First of all, the presentation of these dishes are out of the world good. They are like pieces of art. Not to even imagine how delicious they taste. I love a good marriage between Mediterranean and Italy cuisine and this is just so perfect. You take amazing pictures and I will absolutely patronize IT Ibiza !

    I’m glad you find an Italian restaurant at Ibiza. IT Ibiza serving food like in Italy. The spaghetti is and the tartar are my favorites.

    That’s literally two of my favorite things together: Italian Food and Ibiza. I love Ibiza and I can’t wait to go back to the island this summer. When it comes to Ibiza, people always think of it as the party island, but Ibiza offers so much more beyond parties. It has great beaches, food, and more relaxing and chilling places. Thanks for sharing such an amazing restaurant with great views, chilled vibes and delicious food! I can’t wait to check it out when I’m in Ibiza this August.

    I may or I may not have just drooled all over my keyboard. Haha… I mean… Where do I begin. You can SEE the quality through the images and the fact that they’re all about local produce? And they bake the bread there too? I’m taking a plane there tomorrow haha
