Liana's Italian restaurant, Parramatta, Sydney

Guest blogger edition

Parramatta has become quite a hip place to have dine out if you are in the west with an entire street of restaurants complete with al fresco seating on the footpaths and their very own gourmet KFC where you can choose your own ingredients and your meal is made to order.

Despite really really wanting to try this gourmet KFC, we had just stuffed our faces with maccers for lunch so decided against it. Not sure if our alternative choice was any healthier though as we opted for Italian.

Located right on the intersection of the main street is Liana's Italian restaurant, famous for their square pizzas and with the feel of an old bistro we chose this place to satisfy our dinner hunger. Service was quick and our waitress super cheerful and knowledgable.

Tuscan Marina - $27.90 - tiger prawns, calamari, octopus, mussels, clams in tomato and basil sauce.
You can choose either spaghetti or linguine, so we chose linguine for this one. The seafood was very fresh and I particularly liked the chunky pieces of octopus which were juicy and had a nice texture to them. We also asked for chili to be added but even so, it wasn't very spicy so we also asked for some dried chili flakes =)

Italian bakery style square pizza - La Cucina - $27.90 - chorizo, capsicum, olives, chili, mushrooms, bococcini and mozzarella. They definitely don't skimp on the pizza toppings here! Every slice of pizza had toppings on top of toppings which also went all the way to the crust. The chorizo on this pizzas was delicious and the highlight of the toppings. Beats the $5 pizza hut pizzas I'm use to having that's for sure!
