Cantina Centrale, Mont Albert

·         Olive – a serving of Sicilian green olives ($7.00)
·         Zucchetta – pumpkin, taleggio, fior di latte, rocket, pine nuts, and extra virgin olive oil ($20.00)
·         Gnocchi – ricotta gnocchi served with Napoli and basil ($19.00)
·         Tiramisu ($12.00)

We shared a couple of pizzas between the four of us. 

The ‘Capricciosa Romana – tomato, ham, artichokes, mushrooms, fior di latte and olives ($20.00)’ was delicious with a harmony of quality toppings.

The ‘Sicilian – tomato, fior di latte, garlic, parmigiano, oregano, olives, capers, anchovies ($19.00)’ had a big punch of flavour from the essentially salty ingredients. Both pizzas were delightful but this seemed to be the crowd favourite. 

We also ordered a salad. The ‘Insalata – rocket, pear and gorgonzola dressing ($10.00)’ had a great balance of sweet and sour, which complemented the pizzas.

I enjoyed a glass of ‘Hoddles Creek Chardonnay - ($8.00)’…

For my mother’s birthday, we went to Cantina Centrale for dinner before going to a show at the Hawthorn Arts Centre. As we were booked for the restaurant’s first sitting for the night, the food and service was swift, allowing us to get to the event on time. The menu consists of tantalising pasta dishes, as well as pizzas which are cooked in an impressive wood fired oven. Gluten-free bases are also available for $5 extra.
