Gnocchi @ Cantina 663, Astor Arcade, 663 Beaufort Street, Mount Lawley, Phone 9370 4883,
Happy Birthday … It’s not my birthday by the way, but it sure feels like it could be. Why? Because I’m finally eating gnocchi at Cantina 663.
It’s been about 2 or 3 years since I decided I would eat this dish at some point. Procrastination is a thing of wonder as all that time slipped by and nothing was really noticed.
But the reward of this plate of food was well worth the wait and my basil pesto with fresh ricotta cheese was brimming with fresh herbs as well. An absolutely delicious combination of ingredients, plain and simple but scrumptious.
The gnocchi was pan fried but still soft and chewy, just the way I like it. The pesto was very rich and doused in EVOO which made it’s point quite early on in sampling the food. Big experience as this is what gnocchi is supposed to be like.
I also had a long macchiato, topped up. This was a genuinely fabulous cup of Joe, not too hot, velvety and creamy. Worth going back just for the coffee. Oh, and the food, of course.
A big thank you to the chef.
