After decades delighting taste buds with Italian cuisine, the chefs and baristas at Ebony & Ivory know how to impress their toughest critics – local Italians.
“They are very critical customers, but they love our coffee and food,” says restaurant co-owner Jurgen Schlotzer.
Jurgen indulged his passion for Mediterranean food when he reopened the longstanding restaurant Ebony & Ivory on Moorabool Street last August.
“The secret is fresh, homemade pasta – for delicious meals that bring the taste of Italy to Geelong,“ Jurgen says.
“Fettucine, ravioli, gnocchi, tortellini – we make it all ourselves in our kitchen.
“We have three well-travelled Italian chefs and they all know what they are doing.”
Three months ago Ebony & Ivory extended its opening hours to 8am to 11pm, Monday to Saturday, so customers can enjoy a delicious dinner there as well.
On Sunday it’s open 10am to 3pm for a coffee or brunch.
And with Valentine’s Day coming, Ebony & Ivory is the perfect place to take that somebody special.
Star-crossed lovers can enjoy the delicious Valentine’s Day menu, which the chefs prepared especially for the day in this private, cosy restaurant.
“We’ve still got tables available, but they are going fast,” Jurgen says.
And the restaurant has one very special addition from Geelong West – a man affectionately known on Pakington Street as the ‘Singing Waiter’.
“He sings with the music and everybody seems to like it,” Jurgen says.
“He is not an outstanding singer – but everybody seems to love him – he is just a very lovable Italian guy.”
