La Dispensa is a superb Italian restaurant located in the historical heart of Ibiza – the Word Heritage site of D’alt Vila. Definitely, it is an eatery with a difference: spread across 5 venues with open terraces, it allows every visitor to choose the design and ambiance that fits him best, be at an intimate private party, a romantic date or a hearty family feast.
Technically, La Dispensa is an Italian restaurant – yet Spanish tapas confidently found a niche in the menu, and there is a whole bar devoted to sushi (flambé sushi has already become a local sensation). The other massive hits are Salmon croutons with fennel and orange, Beef carpaccio with caramelised pine nuts and Crispy calamari with citrus mayonnaise. After spoiling yourself with these courses, order the trademark ‘La Dispensa’ ravioli with ricotta, mushroom and caramelised pork; Rack of lamb in a Provenzal crust with pont neuf potato, or Linguini frutti di mare, and generously wash it all down with red Pago de Los Capellanes wine that is a perfect match for every course. When it comes to desserts, pay attention to the unexpected combination of chocolate brownie and pistachio ice cream; and of course, don’t leave without Panacota that is served with strawberries here.
One of La Dispensa’s units is occupied by a shop with an assortment of olive oils and pastas of different shapes. It’s hard to believe that the masterminds of the project, José Luis and Christian, didn’t have any restaurant background before creating this wonder!
