Review - Bondi Trattoria

Alex Harmon got excited about some good, humble food this week...


You know a place is good when it’s packed on a frosty Monday night, filled to the brim with locals who know a decent feed, and ice-skating tourists seeking dinner with atmosphere. It’s an oldie but a goodie, where you can guarantee good, humble food from a classic Italian menu.



Expect classics like Garlic Prawns ($23.90) with crusty bread swimming in piercing flavour, and the beautiful marriage of salty/sweet that is the Prosciutto, Gorgonzola, Pear and Hazelnut Salad ($20.90).



Our waiter highly recommends the signature dish, invented right here in the kitchen - Angel Hair Pasta ($23.90/small) with raw tuna, Parmesan and chilli, which is delicious and extremely generous on the tuna au natural. The ‘Trat has been around for twenty-five years and is almost as famous as the beach you can see from your table.



What should be famous are their BBQ Lamb Cutlets ($34.90) with baby beets, green beans, eschalots, and goats cheese – another perfect (polygamous) marriage, especially with a glass of Kiwi land’s finest Rob Dolan Pinot Noir ($9.90) on the side.



Finish with Chocolate Crème Brulee ($15.90), which has a cracking case that tastes of fire-toasted marshmallows, hiding an even tastier body. Follow suit at the ice-skating rink - if you dare.
