Spiedo Restaurant, Sydney

Spiedo is an Italian restaurant headed by Alessandro Pavoni of the one hatted Ormeggio at the Spit. I have yet to try Ormeggio, it is on my list of places to go. Spiedo can be found on the sixth level of Westfield in Sydney. I love the relaxed vibe, the open kitchen and the friendly atmosphere.

I haven’t done many Crave SIFF events this year. I was meeting up with a friend, and she suggested we do lunch, ‘let’s do lunch’ part of the Crave SIFF events. We both couldn’t go past the Spiedo ‘Let’s do lunch’ – which was slow-cooked pork neck, agrodolce glaze, green peas, silver beet.

Started with the warm focaccia, it was deliciously light and fluffy.

The pork was melt-in-your-mouth tender, with sweet and sour sauce which was absolutely delightful. The peas and the crunchy silver beet was a very nice touch. My only gripe would be the size of the serving, it was quite small and I could have definitely eaten two servings of it!

For dessert, we thought we would share the tiramisu, Spiedo Tiramisu ($14). I have to say, I was a little disappointed. I LOVE tiramisu, however this didn’t really hit the spot. It was a deconstructive tiramisu, all the components separated, coffee sponge cake, chocolate, espresso sorbet and mascarpone. The sponge cake was very light and airy, the chocolate nice but bitter, and the espresso sorbet unbelievably bitter that I couldn’t eat it. I think I would have preferred the whole thing assembled together!

I thought the lunch option was quite ‘small’ however pretty good value – two courses for $45 and three courses for $55. Might try their dinner menu one day, it is a larger menu and the pasta did look very good.

    There are so many new places up on Level 6 that I don’t know which one to try. I just wonder if the “vibe” is a bit off being in a shopping centre….?
