L'avis de Gault&Millau

A Gault&Millau Australia TOP 100 restaurant Nino Zoccali is the owner/chef of The Restaurant Pendolino, by way of Calabria in Italy and the kitchens of OTTO, La Mensa and Bel Mondo in Sydney. The Strand Arcade venue provides a perfect backdrop for the elegantly presented and understated decor, with its enticing old-world feel of dark panelling, subdued lighting, exposed brick, linen-covered tables and aperitivo trolley. The classically themed menu – with a focus on prestigious olive oils from Australia and Italy – is structured around measured two-, three- and four-course options and extends to options for both vegetarians and vegans. For entree, a generous serve of luscious burrata is paired with a honey-laced beetroot jelly, pleasingly cut with an in-house secco vinegar. The secondi options offer compelling choices, from milk-braised pork belly, through a seafood odyssey of Spencer Gulf prawns, Port Lincoln sardines, mussels, scallops and calamari to chargrilled quail, served with a richly satisfying potato tortino and deeply flavoured thyme fondo.
