Trattoria Ubud Review

Trattoria Pizza Restuarant Nyuh KuningTrattoria is an Italian restaurant chain that has 16 branches mostly in South East Asia. They must be doing something right to have so many successful stores. Lucky for us, one is just down the road from our house.

On arrival you will be served bruschetta and 3 different types of bread, all complimentary! Got to love some free food!

The  menu has a large selection of good pizza options. The pizza are a traditional Italian style with a thin base, but large enough to still be filling. They do some extra-large (some may say giant in fact) pizzas with half and half, if you can get the right match these are a winner.

Trattoria Pizza Restuarant Nyuh KuningIt is a fairly kid friendly place because, firstly most kids love pizza. But also because the plain brown paper place-mats are perfect drawing pads for the creative munchkins, not sure if that is the intention however it works for us! Buon Appetito.

Jamie’s Italian in Perth Review

Jamie’s Italian Restaurant in Perth had been on our wish list for quite a while, and as we walked past one night we decided to see if we could score a table.

It was ‘only’ a 1.5 hour wait. With a very efficient booking system, we visited a nearby pub and waited for their call when a table was ready. Alternatively you can have a drink at the bar within the restaurant.

The place was buzzing, or you could describe it as crowded and noisy. They have certainly maximised their floor space, so we felt quite cramped on our small table for two, squeezed in between two other tables with a very narrow walkway.

The decore was a little eclectic, with a high industrial roof with exposed air-conditioning tunnelling, with an enormous fancy chandelier hanging. The bathrooms were slightly retro with cool coloured tiling.

They have a huge team of greeters and seaters, order takers and food deliverers. They were all very efficient and always polite.

It was an interesting menu, not just the standard Italian items, although they were all still their. Some great salads, a burger, some share ‘planks’ with meat, seafood or vegetarian were some of the more interesting options

First course was crunchy arancini balls. These had a fabulous taste, with garlic, lemon and a touch of chilli, but were super crunchy as though they had spent a little too long in the deep fryer!

Main course of deliciously tender baked salmon, with a crunchy salad and olive oil dressing, and some roast veggies.

The main course of fennel sausage pasta, was a classic Italian tomato based sauce with some sausage meat for flavour. Great al’dente in-house pasta.

The baked cheesecake was a great finish to the meal. It came with a candied orange sauce which was extremely sweet, but none-the-less rather scrumptious!

The price of the meals were surprisingly very reasole, though it did add up with a bottle of wine, an entrée, two mains and a dessert.

Siena’s of Leederville Review

Siena’s Pizzaria, Restorante, Caffe – Leederville

It may be authentic Italian, but certainly not inspiring. The Siena’s of Leederville restaurant has been serving authentic Italian food for a long time in Leederville. It is located on the main strip, and can be very popular, particularly on the specials nights (Mon-Wed) where most pasta dishes and pizza is $12. You are advised to pre-book on these nights. Another great thing about this restaurant is the children’s play area, located inside the restaurant with a big glass window so you can keep a good eye on the kids while you enjoy your meal.
