Tappo Osteria – Pyrmont, Italian Restaurant Review

IMG_6748

They always say that it’s not what you know, but who you know. While that’s not entirely true, friends and colleagues do come in handy when it comes to restaurant recommendations. As was the case when I asked a work colleague about some of her favourite Italian restaurants. Tappo Osteria was one of the restaurants she mentioned, which to my surprise … Continue Reading

Lucio Pizzeria – Darlinghurst, Italian Restaurant Review

Lucio Pizzeria - Darlinghurst

Earlier this year I had the wonderful opportunity to spend a month in Europe and enjoy it’s many culinary delights. That included tasting the most amazing Margherita pizza ever, at Pizzeria Da Michele in Napoli, Italy. Since then I’ve been on the hunt for something similar here in Sydney. Now comparing local Sydney pizza, to what is quite possibly the best pizza … Continue Reading

The Italian Bowl – Newtown, Italian Restaurant Review

The Italian Bowl - Newtown

One of the best things about Newtown is that it’s very easy to get lost in the myriad of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. Which is very convenient when your super-lazy mates are running an hour and a half late to an event you’re attending – as was the case on the night. So after browsing a few art stores, … Continue Reading

Eatalia – North Strathfield, Italian Restaurant Review

eatalia-north-strathfield-1233

It’s no secret that I love Italian food. The trinity of great pizza, pasta and coffee is one of life’s great culinary pleasures. At least for me anyway. Which is why I was quite excited to try Eatalia in North Strathfield. Their radio ad described it as an authentic Italian restaurant and on their website, Eatalia is likened to restaurants … Continue Reading

Restaurant 16 – Neutral Bay, Italian Restaurant Review

Restaurant 16 Neutral Bay Panfried Scallops

I worked in Neutral Bay back in the day so I used to know the area quite well. But boy has it changed over the past 6 years. There are only a handful of shops that I recognise from back then. One theme has held true over the years, though, and that’s the abundance of restaurants and cafe’s adorning Military … Continue Reading

Ciao, Hola, Bonjour, Hallo & ‘Allo – A Small Taste of Europe

IMG_0806

Earlier this year I finally got the chance to take a much needed break from work and head over to Europe for a month-long vacation. It was a long time coming too, because I had been wanting to travel to Europe, and Italy in particular, for the better part of the last decade. Despite the cooler Winter temperatures, the trip … Continue Reading

Made in Italy – Pyrmont, Italian Restaurant Review

Spaghetti Marinara

Ciao. Please, sit down. I have a small confession to make. I am a massive fan of all things Italian. Cars, women, women, women and of course Italian food. Now although Italian women have always gotten me into trouble (oh the memories), I’m happy to say that Italian food has always put a smile on my face :) So when … Continue Reading

Angelos On The Bay – Cabarita, Italian Restaurant Review

Angelos on the Bay

Angelos on the Bay is a beautiful Italian restaurant located in the picturesque Prince Edward Park in Cabarita, Sydney. With sweeping views of the water, combined with the restaurant’s secluded placement, Angelos on the Bay has a very intimate and romantic atmosphere — although this changes drastically whenever there is a private function! We’ve visited Angelos on the Bay a number … Continue Reading

There so many things I loved about our visit to Melbourne and a lot of these resolved around food :) Melbourne has such a vibrant culture when it comes to dining and entertainment.

Il Piave is a cute little Italian Restaurant located on Darling Point Road in Rozelle. The area, and this road in particular, is quite a mecca for restaurants and cafes. So one has to produce exceptional food to have any success here. Luckily for us, this is the case for Il Piave. From the the outside it may look very … Continue Reading

Crinitis Darling Harbour - Linguine Frank Sinatra

Ah Crinitis… Situated in the Harbourside Shopping Centre in Darling Harbour, this is an absolute gem of a restaurant! Overlooking the beautiful Sydney CBD skyline, expect to be fed to the brink here with delicious Italian food. Although a little on the pricey side, the servings here are definitely more than generous! What is really astounding, and somewhat daunting at … Continue Reading

The Italian – Melbourne, Restaurant Review

theitalian

A visit to this restaurant wasn’t a planned affair. It was after 9pm and we were walking the streets of Melbourne looking for a second option for dining after the first had fallen through. Due to the holidays, nothing much was open so I was thrilled when we managed to get a table here. Having finally found a way inside … Continue Reading
