Italy 1, Camberwell; Melbourne

10 Mar

Highlight – House made gnocchi

Lowlight – Did not have enough time to try dessert

Gnocchi

House made potato gnocchi with braised lamb shoulder, green olive & tomato ragu

FOOD?

We started our night with fresh oysters and white wine. Each of us ordered a pasta dish which all turned out as expected, full of flavour and yummy goodness. I had a taste of my friend’s dish, the homemade gnocchi pillows that melted away in my mouth.  My barramundi and scallop mousse tortellini was still delicious but next time I’ll be sure to order the gnocchi!

I would have loved to try the dessert but we spent too much time on drinks, entrees and mains that by the time we finished our two-hour slot was up and we had to leave.

Italy 1 is a favourite amongst my friends and I will surely return here in the future!

AMBIENCE?

We booked the 6.00pm to 8.00pm session so when we arrived only a few tables were occupied. However, not long after the restaurant was full of life and lively chatter. Great food combined with awesome company was sure to end in a lovely night.

SERVICE?

Our waiters were polite and always on the look out to make sure our wine glasses were always topped up. Although at one point during the night the waitress started pouring us another table’s bottle of wine!
