Cafe Della Piazza

It was my birthday! We went out for dinner! I felt like Italian, but didn’t want to go somewhere that we usually go, so, since we had only been here once before, we decided to give it another try. There is a decent choice for vegetarians, and they are marked – which is nice! We started with garlic bread, which was pretty good. For our mains, I had the pasta (can’t remember what type) Verona – which had sun dried tomatoes and goats cheese among other things and Martin opted for the artichoke tart which came on a bed of something delicious with green beans and a yummy sort of sauce. (It was a while ago now, and I can’t remember everything that was in these dishes, so forgive me – I have been busy!) The tart wasn’t huge, but my pasta was, so I let Martin finish it off for me! We also both had a glass of wine with our mains, the menu has wine recommendations for the various dishes, and Martin opted to go with the recommended (white) wine for his dish, whereas I preferred to choose my chardonnay. Being a special occasion, we opted to have dessert and I couldn’t go past the macadamia tart, which came with lovely macadamias encased in delicious caramel-type thing in a tart case, and Martin had the white chocolate cheesecake. Dessert was accompanied by a glass of dessert wine – there were two on the menu and we tried one each. Funnily enough, we each liked our own, but not each others! This is a nice restaurant with a pretty good menu. However, I think that once I have eaten here a few times, then I will have tried all the veggie items on the menu. I also just re-read the review I wrote last time and realised that I had eaten the same thing both times. Hmmm, I think that might indicate that there are things that I don’t like in the other dishes. I wonder how often they change change their menu…
