Prelibato is twenty year’s old dream of Cristina and Giuseppe Rutigliano who wanted to bring in this country the Italian food culture by making available the finest food and wines. The dream became reality when their son, Michele, after graduating in philosophy, joined the project bringing all new level of creativity and research and building our dishes along with our Chef.

Our philosophy is summarised into three words:

Sophisticated yet informal.

Sophisticated because we research to the finest detail everything we do and offer in order to make sure that our products are the best and the most true to the Italian tradition and culture. Our products are sophisticated and so is the taste of our guests. We directly import the vast majority of our products from Italy working closely to the best artisan producers. We also take pride in having developed a relationship with some local producers such our coffee roasters and cake maker.

Informal, because Prelibato is a place where you can spend time in a relaxed, friendly and home-like athmosphere without giving up on a warm and attentive service. Everything at Prelibato, from the furniture to the music we play, has been specifically chosen to make sure that our guests will feel like they would in an Italian Locanda.

If you are curious and would like to know more about our products and their history, please come and pay us a visit and ask any member of our team and we will be delighted to pass all our product knowledge.

Lastly and more importantly, enjoy your time at Prelibato Beaconsfield.


Cristina, Michele and Giuseppe
