La Disfida, Haberfield, Sydney

Guest blogger edition

Named a number of times in the controversial (because people will always complain that their favourite pizza place hasn't been included etc etc)  'best pizza in Sydney' lists, is La Disfida, an Italian restaurant in Haberfield. The restaurant is situated on the main road in Haberfield and encompasses two levels, but even so, the place gets quite busy and it's best to make a booking.

On this cold night Friday night, we made a booking for 6 at 8:15pm - a relatively late booking but gave everyone enough time to get there. We sat down, ordered some drinks and then browsed the huge selection of menu items before ordering a plethora of items.

Insalata Caprese (Fresh Tomato & Mozzarella di Bufala, basil & E.V olive oil) -$18 - light cheese and tomatoes - a palate cleansing start to the meal. Apparently this tastes like what they serve in Italy...

Salsiccia E Funghi - Tomato Mozzarella, Pork Sausage and Wild Mushrooms - $24 - Great pizza! Delicious toppings with a thin base - yummmy

Gamberi pizza - Mozzarella, Prawns garlic parsley fresh diced Tomato Olives and Capers -$26 - A decent pizza, but what I find with prawn pizzas is that there is never enough prawns!

Disfida pizza - Tomato, mozzarella, ham, smoked mozzarella, olives, Anchovies, capers -$23 - My favourite pizza of the night probably because the ham and anchovies worked in perfect harmony.

Quattro Stagione - $22 - 4 sectors of pizza each with a different topping - good if you want to try some different toppings and dont' have the numbers to order too many pizzas. The salami on this was very spicy!

Pasta Del Giorno (chefs daily pasta special) ~ $22 -  sorry, I have no recolleciton of what this is but it was just average.

 Chilli prawn linguine ~ $22 - A nice fresh pasta but not enough prawns!

Poached pears and panna cotta ~ $18 - perfect wobbly panacotta with soft poach pears
