Twelve-hour Indian-spiced lamb shoulder with saffron pilaf

André’s Cucina & Polenta Bar
-34.924599,138.608085

Bring your appetite and a group of friends to this boisterous city diner, where northern Italian flavours, generous plates and relaxed, friendly service have earned proprietor André Ursini a loyal following. The dark, intimate space feels like a suburban café, its walls stacked with pasta and bottles of balsamic vinegar. Unclad tables and timber chairs add to the homely feel. The food is simple, fuss-free and well executed. Pillows of house-made ricotta are especially light and fluffy, while Ursini's signature polenta - ours served with sautéed mushroom, Taleggio, pesto and pine nuts - is the ultimate in creamy comfort food. A jumble of South Australian mulloway, mussels and king prawns on roast fennel, served with bread, is also rich in flavour. Dense apple cake works beautifully with slivers of poached rhubarb, a dollop of vanilla ice-cream and a tangy lemon curd. The wine list is a fitting blend of local and Italian bottles.
