CUCINA 105

Cuisine: Italian

It’s a restaurant, it’s a bar, it’s a pizzeria. Whether you want to have the Big Night Out or just a casual bite and a glass or two of wine, this can be your place, either way. The woodfired pizza and calzone $16.90–$25.90 cover a good range of traditional toppings using great ingredients and there’s an extensive list of pasta and risotto dishes, including a flavoursome penne con salcicce and ricotta $17.90/$20.90 and gnocchi with blue swimmer crabmeat in napoletana sauce $19.90/$22.90. In the secondi, despite the hefty price tag it’s hard to pass up the cacciucco, fresh seafood tossed in garlic & chilli, slow cooked in a tomato-based sauce and served with freshly baked bread $35.90, but check out the specials, too. A stylish interior with white-clothed tables and the glow of the pizza oven make it a great local venue.

WOODLAND'S FAMILY RESTAURANT

Cuisine: Italian,Vegan/Vegetarian,Indian

Meat eaters have always enjoyed the vegetarian food here but now they can have their meat and eat it. Woodlands has extended to include Woodlands Tandoori, offering lamb $16.50 and chicken $15 dishes for the non-vegetarians. Concerned vegos should know these are cooked separately and there is a vegetarian-only section as well as the mixed area. Whichever camp you’re in, a thali is a great choice: a banquet for one with sambar (dip), rasam (soup), two curries, yoghurt, pappadam, pickle, rice and the lovely balloon bread called poori, vegetarian $16, add a small masala dosa $18. The non-veg thali $20 has a chicken and a lamb curry. Otherwise, don’t miss the vadai, golden-brown donuts made from lentil and rice flour $6, or the eye-popping paper dosa, a huge crisp, golden pancake rolled and stuffed with potato, onion and fresh spices $12. Check the sweets counter on your way out.
