  1. Pork Ribs with Balsamic Glaze

The first dish on the list when eating at an Italian restaurant in Sydney is Pork Ribs with Balsamic Glaze. This one is a great option for all the meat lovers out there.

Now, the dish starts off with the main ingredient, high-quality pork. Through a tried and tested cooking process they end up tender and juicy. Also, the Balsamic Glaze brings a sweet, tangy flavour that brings the pork to another level.

But, that’s not all. The Balsamic Glaze adds a deep, rich colour to the dish. Your mouth will be watering before your first taste.

If you haven’t tried it already, next time you’re at an Italian restaurant, tick it off your list.

  1. Parma Prosciutto & Melone Flat Bread

Parma Prosciutto & Melone Flat Bread is a great option if you want something fresh and light. The dish makes a great addition to a rich, heavy dish such as Pork Ribs. And, a lot of people choose to use it as a starter because it’s easy to share.

Now, the prosciutto brings a lovely sweet and salty flavour to the dish. But, it’s a light flavour and not overpowering. That’s why you can use it to cut through rich Italian restaurant dishes.

Besides the prosciutto, the melon brings the freshness and sweetness it’s known for. Together, they create a heavenly sweet, salty and fresh dish that will have you wanting more.

So, when you’re at an Italian restaurant in Woollahra, try ordering this dish as a light meal or something to share.

  1. Mushroom Arancini with Paprika Aioli

Now, if you’ve never had Arancini before, it’s definitely an Italian restaurant must try! Arancini is a rice ball that’s coated in bread crumbs and deep-fried. So, those of you who love the fryer will fall in love with this dish.

The dish has many different elements. The Arancini itself is crunchy as well as creamy and cheesy. So, if you’re a sucker for rich and filling food, this dish will leave you satisfied.

But, to cut through all that creaminess, the Paprika Aioli comes to the rescue. The Aioli brings some freshness back to the dish with a slightly sweet and spicy flavour.

Together, these ingredients create the perfect storm in your mouth. A definite must-have at an Italian restaurant in the Eastern Suburbs.

There you have it. These are our 3 must-haves at an Italian restaurant. Whether you prefer the tangy glaze, creamy Arancini or salty Prosciutto, we know you’ll love them all.
