Owner and chef Tony Percuoco has created a complete and, for Brisbane, unique dining experience at this high-achieving restaurant. Step from Emporium, a bustling shopping precinct, into an elegant enclave. In a hurry? Turn right and snack on Neapolitan-style, wood-fired pizze. Or veer left to find well-drilled waitstaff, rich red banquettes, black linen and fine dining. The food is perfectly traditional, from bull's-eyed benchmarks such as cheese and pea arancini, or scampi linguine in butter sauce to some of the best veal in town, which appears in vitello tonnato, or as a tasty loin stuffed with pine nuts. Desserts, too, are rewardingly authentic: wobbly panna cotta, a delight of honey and vanilla served with a scoop of raspberry gelato, and flaky sfogliatella filled with ricotta and cedro. A heavily Italian-accented wine list also offers a broad range of Australian and New Zealand labels, and lingering over coffee here seems essential.
