Cuisine: Italian

Tucked around a corner in Cross Street between shops, the umbrella-covered tables and chairs of Dish wait to be occupied early on a weekday evening. In summer, tables are seldom set up inside, allowing you to indulge summer-feast style in the open air. The most striking feature here is the good value. Generous servings beg to be shared, such as a small pizza Mediterraneo $18 and a salad of roast beetroot, red onion, beans, spinach, roast garlic and yoghurt dressing $14.50. An entree of octopus braised in red wine $12.50 and spaghettini with calamari, mussels, prawns and scallops $27.50 are both winners. By 8pm the place is full of local families taking a slice of the excellent value, along with scoops of housemade gelati.

Pasulj, a bean soup with smoked bacon $12, or gibanica (cheese in filo pastry) precede panfried chicken livers with onion $12.50. From the grill come raznjici, chargrilled skewered pork medallions, and cevapcici, garlicky skinless sausages, each served with a cabbage and potato salad $22.50  or a mixed grill that’s a combo of both $25.50.
