By far one of my favourite cuisines is Italian. My favourite Italian restaurant you may ask? Silly, of course it is Amalfi’s. You cannot go wrong ordering anything from here – the pizzas, the pasta, the meal dishes, everything is absolutely delicious.
One of the first things I had ever tried from Amalfi’s was their Con Pollo. It was extraordinary, nothing I’ve ever tasted before. The thick, rich cream sauce topped with generous amounts of meat and mushrooms. I loved eating the apricots, random sweetness in this savoury dish which was a good surprise.
Con Pollo – Rigatoni, Chicken, Pancetta, Mushroom, Chives, Apricot, Pepper, Cream Sauce
Amalfi had the same Con Pollo sauce but a bit spicer, still nice but I like the Con Pollo better (apricots FTW).
Amalfi - Egg ribbon pasta with mushroom, pancetta, chilli and cream sauce
The monticello tasted really good for a salad, though I don’t think it was that healthy with it all being drenched in balsamic vinegar.
Monticello – baby spinach, balsamic, red onion, grilled chicken, mayonnaise, roasted capsicum, parmesan
Despite their good food one thing I really don’t like is the service. Don’t get me wrong, they do an alright job but I don’t like the air of pretentiousness, lack of care and the inattentiveness. Sigh, can’t win them all but I still love this place/food Make sure you have a booking with them at least a week beforehand if you want to eat here on Fri, Sat or Sun. I would still make a booking on the weekdays but I have made a walk-in and plenty of seats were available.
