Mezzalira

(This restaurant is listed as Italian on City Search – however, I would have called it more modern Australian/European type food.)

We went here to celebrate with some friends of ours who got engaged. I have been here once before, years ago for a xmas party and we had a set menu, so I was keen to see what they had on the actual menu. Veggie wise, it wasn’t too bad – especially if you like mushrooms… There were 2 veggie entrées (a portabello mushroom and a cauliflower soup) and 2 veggie mains (mushroom risotto and pumpkin (?) ravioli with a sage and burnt butter ‘sauce’). You could have the mains as an entrée – but that would severely limit your main course choices if you are vegetarian! The food was great! The servings were not huge, but that was good because it left room for desert! Martin went for mushrooms all the way, but I had the alternatives and the ravioli was fantastic! At first I thought it would be expensive, but at the end of the night, between 5 of us and including 2 bottles of wine, I think it was very reasonable.
