Fratelli Fresh, Sydney CBD, Sydney

Guest blogger edition

Cafe sopra at Fratelli Fresh has been around for a long time, but is not that easy to find unless you know what you are looking for, or if someone takes you there. It is located in a tiny doorway which leads to some steps that take you down into the dark downstairs restaurant. The lighting is perfect for a romantic dinner for 2 but not great for photos >_<.

The staff is attentive and very friendly and we were seated in no time. Good thing too because even thought it was a week night, the place got packed!

We were pretty starving so we may have ordered a tad too much, but we managed to scoff it all down.

Arincini balls with parmesan cheese- $18 - First up - classic arincini balls. Deep fried balls of risotto rice, crumbed and crunchy on the outside and gooey and soft on the inside.  Delicious cheese flavours emanate throughout the balls but it is quite a lot for just two people.

Potato, pork sausage and rosemary pizza - $24 - the pizza here is authentic. Thin puffy pizza base cooked in a wood fired oven. You can actually see the oven when you walk in and if you sit at the bar tables, watch the chef make the pizzas. This one is one of my favourites. A simple combination of tried and tested flavours of potato and rosemary combined with pieces of pork sausage. 

Lemon, chili and panagratto linguine -$22 - Another very simple dish but executed so well here. Just a few ingredients and well cooked pasta. The taste is subtle, of lemon and chilli and herbs but so scrumptious. The panagratto is like a crunchy bread crumb topping which provides the extra texture to the dish. I've tried making this at home and it just isn't quite the same (although it was pretty yum nonetheless!).
