My friend Jacqui found out i love lasagna (because of Garfield haha!) and so she told me about one of her favourite places to get italian food, Maccaroni Osteria Italiana in Clifton Hill. I decided to go on an adventure to Clifton Hill and check it out!
It was pleasant night! (First night of Spring this year!).
When i finally found the restaurant, (which was conveniently quite close to Clifton Hill station) i stepped inside and immediately felt a warm, cosy vibe. The place looks nice!
I sat down and the lovely waittress handed me a menu, and i took some time reading it, although i had already made up my mind what i was going to order hehehe (lasagna! :D).
So i ordered a lasagna and a coke! I just love coke with my pasta for some odd reason!
While i was waiting, i saw this on the table:
I looked like croutons or something to me, and i assumed thats what it was! But i wasnt 100% sure.. it possibly could have been some crazy potpourri or something haha! But i was hungry so i just picked one up and bit into it!
Yum!! It was edible hahaah! Phew 🙂 and delicious too. I ate all of them before my food came, i couldnt really stop haha.
And then my lasagna came out:
Looks good right? 🙂
Add some cheese…
And then dig in! 🙂
It was so flavoursome, yes!! Great tomato taste. And it was just the perfect amount of slight firmness/chewiness for me! I had a good time eating that 🙂 so much so i wven forgot to drink much of my coke during the meal hehe.
Then for dessert, i ordered an almond tart with custard and apple:
Also delicious! And flavours!
I love places that obviously put a lot of thought and care into their food, and this place obviously does!
I definitely recommend checking this place out if you feel like italian. Especially if you need a place with delicious vegan options! 🙂
Maccaroni Osteria Italiana is at 201 Queens parade Clifton Hill.
I came back here again with Jacqui, Ted and Mo and it was so good once again! I ordered the gnocchi and it was so great. So soft mmmmmmmm
Love it! Yummmmmmm
