Without any specific dinner plans, browsing down the street from our hotel, my family and I came across the Little Italy Restaurant. This family Ristorante Italiano looked very inviting and cozy. We were surprised how busy this place was at dinner time, but somehow we managed to get a table for four. Instantly we were taken by a family atmosphere, warm welcome and prompt service. When the menu arrived, we were pleasantly surprised by the food and wine selection.
Looking around, we discovered that the portions were huge, and food looked great. I decided on garlic bread with cheese for my appetizer and Fettuccine Carbonara pasta for the main course. Boy, was that a great choice…garlic bread was very tasty and my pasta, absolutely delicious. Carbonara was served with lots of Parmesan cheese and freshly ground black pepper…Yummy! Since the food was freshly made, it took a while for our meals to arrive…so while waiting, we enjoyed wine and beer…not a bad option to kill time, was it?
I was so full that I couldn’t manage dessert BUT thank goodness for the “doggy bag” – the home-made Tiramisu tasted great in my hotel room (Take-away option available). Our server was quick, attentive and made us feel welcome. The restaurant was vibrant, and dimmed lighting added to the nice atmosphere.
I would recommend making a reservation if possible. If driving, you can park your car in the multi storey car park just down the the street, (scratch parking ticket is required, available at the convenience store) use the Kensington Place entrance…..
****Note: This restaurant is closed Mondays****
We really enjoyed our dinner in the Little Italy Restaurant, and I hope you do too!
