Eat’aliano by Pino

 

THE VIBE

Don’t let the shiny new exterior fool you, this dining room is warm, inviting and bustling – as if you’d just pulled up a chair at your family home.

THE DECOR

Modern touches – including hanging planter boxes and copper accents – contrast with traditional bentwood chairs and a tiled bar in front of the open kitchen.

THE CROWD

Local families get together at the large tables, while couples get cosy under the ambient lighting.

THE FOOD

Chef Pino Russo’s menu features traditional fare from several Italian regions. The panzerotti fritti – a deep-fried pizza dough – is a must-try to start, while the gnocco alla sorrentina and the delectable pizzas will hit the spot for a main.

THE DRINK

A great range of wines, many from Italy. Of course, there’s beer and aperitivo, including an Italian take on the Bloody Mary.

THE VERDICT

Molto bene!
