Formerly the site of Miss Italia, newly opened Alba is gaining acclaim for its fresh, made-from-scratch contemporary Italian food, and wines that complement flavours of the cuisine. Owners Kiran and Regina named their Jasper restaurant Alba after the Italian translations of ‘sunrise’ and Kiran’s Sanscrit name ‘ray of sun’.

ATMOSPHERE 

The dining room’s rustic look was inspired by the historic walls and buildings that line the banks of Venice’s Grand Canal. Wooden ‘bumpers’ (used in Italy to prevent damage to boats and docks) give Alba an authentic port feeling. Mountain views are enjoyed from tables by windows and on the flower-filled terrace.
