Moretti, Leichhardt

Where there is an Italian restaurant every second number of Norton Street in Leichhardt, I’m really glad to have walked into Moretti.

 

Complimentary bread and butter 

Long Island Iced Tea

Garlic Bread traditional garlic bread with real butter and garlic $4

Carpaccio di bresaola thinly sliced bresaola topped with rocket and parmigiano shavings drizzled with vinagrette $21

One word that makes my heart stop. Bresaola. One you try it, you cannot get enough of this cured dried beef.

Costolette D’agnello alla Griglia Grilled lamb cutlets marinated in extra virgin olive oil and rosemary $36.50

Order the lamb cutlets, cooked medium rare if you would like to try some of the softest meat you’ll ever taste.

Spaghetti allo scoglio wine, garlic, extra virgin olive oil and chilli with prawns, vongole and mussels $31.50

Dressed in an olive oil and parsley sauce, the spaghetti with fresh seafood is simple, satisfying and delicious. Not a single strand of pasta was left behind.

Maialona pizza tomato sauce, mozzarella, roman sausage, salame and smoked ham $24.50

Flying in an authentic woodfire oven  from Italy doesn’t automatically guarantee good pizza, but rest assured the pizza crust is thin, wonderfully crispy and the meaty toppings plentiful.

I forgot to ask the waiter to write down the Italian name of this ‘special of the day’ dessert, it was a marzipan chocolate jelly. I don’t why marzipan tastes like ammonia to me so this wasn’t my favourite. Aside from that, it was served with a lovely scoop of vanilla gelato, biscuit crumbs and coffee cream.

Pannacotta

Tiramisu

I am not the biggest fan of Italian desserts and yet despite my personal bias I still found the space to critique and ‘research’ some at the restaurant. We ate all of the pannacotta, tiramisu and gelato, all nice examples of classic Italian desserts.

I am not Italian but I know when something is watered down/Westernised. I actually really enjoyed the meal at Moretti, I thought everything was cooked very well and tasted authentic and most importantly of all – delizioso!
