Friends organise a catch up and decide to dine at Amalfi Pizzeria Ristorante, more commonly referred to as Amalfi’s. Awesome, as I’ve always wanted to try out this eatery but never made the time to do so. Oh, and might I add, a booking is usually required here as it is completely packed out, especially on a Friday night!
Garlic bread; $4.50
Cozze aglio olio: black mussels; $16.00
Delicious, delicious carbs! A light crispy crust with soft fluffy bread with garlic butter spread – BLISS. A great starter and satisfying tummy liner cause I was hungryyyyy~
These mussels were beautiful! They were cooked perfectly, the meat was super juicy, plump and sweet. Omnomnomnom~ The best mussels I’ve had in a long time.
Saltimbocca alla romana: veal topped with parma ham, pan fried with sage, served with light glaze, greens and potato; $27.50 (not the most attractive dish I’ve gotta say)
Marinara: spaghetti, shellfish, squid, fish, prawns and crab; $25.00
Amalfitana: linguine, onion, dried tomato, eggplant, pine nuts, artichoke, spinach, oregano; $18.70 entree size
Con pollo: rigatoni chicken, pancetta, mushroom, chives, apricot, pepper, cream sauce; $21.20
I ordered the Amalfitana – the red sauce, eggplant and pine nuts got me; gotta love an extra crunch and a good handful of veggies. This dish was delish, lovely flavourful sauce and a good variety of veggies – although if there was a hint of protein – say mince meat or something… this would’ve been a super winner – I love my meat !
Will head back for the pizza next time and ignore the horrendous service. A table for 10 was booked but the rude waiter kept wanting to take our chairs to accommodate another table… sir, we reserved for 10 people, not 9.
