My delicious dish was the mushroom bruschetta, $19. The mushrooms were sautéed in garlic, parsley, and butter and were ever so tasty. They were joined by a perfectly runny poached egg, asparagus, creamy Danish fetta and an onion jam. The toasted ciabatta was absolutely heavenly – thickly cut and super fresh. I also got a side of avocado for an extra $3.
We did enjoy Piccolo’s, though one of my friends had to prompt the waitress three times to get her food (which was something already pre-made in the cabinet). Usually Kez wouldn’t mind so much, but she was only days away from having her second baby – the poor thing had to sit and watch us all eat whist she was ravenous! The waitress did apologise and bring an extra muffin, but Kez would have preferred to simply have her food in a timely manner.
Another note to make is the lack of parking. I’m unfamiliar with the area and drove around for about 10 minutes trying to find a spot that wasn’t “no parking” or required a permit. Eventually I spotted a place in between two cars and snapped it up – only to realise when I got back to my car that it was in fact a “permit only” spot. Whoops – I missed the sign and got my first ever parking ticket!
