We had been hearing some good things about the recently opened Italian Street Kitchen, located on the lake on Solent Circuit, Norwest. We are always on the lookout for new places to eat in the Hills area and this place was amazing.
Arriving for a Sunday lunch, the restaurant is offering both indoor and outdoor seating with a great view overlooking the lake. There are a few restaurants on this strip, situated under the Esplanade high rise building. Very tastefully decorated, the restaurant is inviting and comfortable.
We ordered the Wood-Fired Italian Cheese Bread for starters. Just the right amount of cheese and garlic on a perfectly cooked Italian flatbread. This was followed by the Gnocchi Bolognese, a huge dish of tender gnocchi with a very tasty bolognese sauce. The Capricciosa Pizza and Salsiccia E Patate Pizza were perfectly cooked with great flavour. These guys know their pizzas, the bases melted in your mouth and allowed the flavours of the toppings to come through.
It is always good to have great service and we experienced this from the moment we walked into this restaurant. The food and drinks arrived in good time and the waiters were friendly.
If you are after an authentic Italian restaurant where you can sit back and relax and enjoy your surrounds, this place ticks all the boxes. We will definitely be back to try some of the other dishes on the menu. We’ve already made our next reservation!
