Located in Greenwood Ave stretch and hidden from the main road, one may have missed out on this Italian restaurant. It offers a 3 course lunch set, priced at a reasonable $25++. The set lunch consists of a choice of Antipasto or Soup, a choice of pasta or pizza, a dessert of the day and a choice of hot drink or a glass of Prosecco.
The restaurant has both indoor and outdoor dine in area. The indoor has quite traditional look with its red brick wall on one side and filled with traditional looking chairs.
I start with some slices of bread, served in a basket. There is a bottle of olive oil and vinegar on the table to go with them. I would prefer the bread to be served hot, especially when the weather is so cold outside.
From the list of 5 choices in the Antipasti section of the lunch set menu:
Carpaccio di Filetto di Manzo con Rucola e Scaglie di Parmiggiano
Thinly Sliced Fresh Tenderloin Topped with Fresh Arugula, Parmesan Cheese, Dressed with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Black Pepper and Lemon.
The raw beef is very thinly sliced and doesn't has any beefy taste.
From the list of 3 choices in the Soup section of the lunch set menu :
Cipolla e Formaggio
Onion & Cheese Soup
Smell great. Smooth and rich in taste.
From the list of 10 choices in Primi Piatti (Main Course) section of the menu :
Linguine Frutti di Mare
Mixed Seafood Sprinkled with White Wine, Chilli, Garlic, Parsley, in Tomato Sauce
Lots of seafood such as prawn, octopus, clam
Rich in sauce but not the jelat type. The serving is quite huge and I cannot finish it.
Dessert of the Day :
Profiterole topped with chocolate cream
The cream is rich but not too much to have.
I end the meal with a glass of Prosecco.
Overall the food is great and big in serving. But being located in such ula ula place, there is not much customers during a weekday lunch. By the way the $25 lunch set is also offers on saturday too.
