Don’t expect any drop off in quality because of the homey surroundings though, because the food is hearty and delicious. You can’t go wrong with their homemade pastas, which include mouth-watering choices like ravioli stuffed with pumpkin and carrot in a tomato cream sauce, gnocchi sautéed with six types of Italian cheese, as well as flat pasta sautéed with prawn, scallop, and sundried tomato in a saffron sauce.
If you’re more a pizza person, don’t fret. Spizzico offers two whole pages of choices that range from evergreen favourites such as the ‘quattro stagioni’ (four seasons) to less common but still delicious variations such as their salmone e rucola, a delicious combination of smoked salmon, capers, onions, chilli and rocket.
We’d be remiss to not mention their main dishes though. The costolette di agnello al balsamico e Marsala is described as lamb rack in a tasty sauce of balsamic vinegar and Marsala wine, and tasty is definitely an apt descriptor.
Spizzico may not be as fancy as some of the newer restaurants on the block, but if you want heartfelt Italian cuisine with warm, friendly service, then Spizzico’s the place for you. (Mar 2012)
