One of the nicest boutique Italian restaurant I've come across in Australia is in the wine country of McLaren Vale, an hour south of Adelaide.
Their appetizers were presentable with a hint of character. Not the typical boring copy-and-redo type of food you'll find in other Italian restaurants.
Try the Chicken Liver Pate with Mango Chutney served with Pita Bread.
Love the pita bread concept.
Their homemade bread with Dukkah dip was not bad too.
Dukkah, an Egyptian mixture of seeds, nuts and Middle Eastern spices.
Usually have it with Egyptian baladi bread dipping into olive oil and then into the spice mixture.
Tangy, spicy, very fragrant. Not my kind of dish. But nice bread.
Their list of pizzas were a hit among the locals and foreigners.
We had the Mediterranean and the Tandoori Chicken flavours: 2 in 1.
What attracted me was the sinful generous dollops of sour cream on top of the Tandoori Chicken Pizza.
End it with a cup of good coffee or latter.
Rating: 4.5/5 (Food, Ambiance, Service. Perfect.)
