Review - Made In Italy

An Italian trattoria aims to be more casual than a restaurant, but a little classier than a pub. This gleaming glass box caught my eye by being well patronised on most evenings I drove past – my assumption was that they must be doing something right.

Upon closer examination, it’s warm and inviting inside, and their pizzas are definitely the draw-card. The Pizza Bianca ($25) with Parma prosciutto, rocket and sweet shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano is thin, crisp, and not weighed down by excess toppings – bellissimo - particularly with a glass from their small but affordable selection of Italian and Australian wines.

The chock full specials board holds gems like an Insalata of Figs, Prosciutto and Buffalo Mozzarella ($20) made great by perfectly ripe, fleshy figs against salty pig and creamy cheese.

From the regular menu there’s crisp Zucchini Flowers ($20) stuffed with more creamy Buffalo mozzarella, ricotta and anchovies;

and a Fritto Misto ($20) that employs the proximity of the Sydney Seafood Market to full effect.

New chef Franco Berlusconi’s mains are competent – I tried the Scaloppina al Limone ($25)

and the Scotch Fillet ($27) with crispy pancetta, porcini and red wine jus.

Both come with a well-cooked selection of vegetables.


Kids are welcomed, dress is casual, prices are reasonable.
