Lambretta Cucina Italiana

Hi friends!!! Sorry it's been so long since the last post! This past week or so has been hectic with school and lots of other activities! I feel so sad that we've neglected our blog and readership has gone down!!! :(

Anyway, I just wanted to blog about this Italian restaurant that Tiff and I visited weeks ago. Yeah I think we just submitted a major assignment that day and rewarded ourselves by going shopping (again???)!!! After the shops closed, we chanced upon this little Italian restaurant in Nedlands so we decided to give it a shot! 

Since there was only 2 of us, we couldn't order alot because food portions are huge here in Australia so Tiff and I usually share.

After scanning through the menu, we decided to order:

Italian Bread with Olive Oil and Vinegar Dip - We were CONNED into ordering this!!! Haha the very charismatic Italian owner suggested that we order the Italian bread for starters. According to him, its woodfried or something and hence, very good. We were so smitten by his charming good looks we said ALRIGHT (Silly girls!!!) and........it wasn't nice at all because it was too hard!!!! Disappointing!

Garlic and Chilli Mushrooms. They were delicious! It was a very simple dish but it made us very happy! Oh it wasn't spicy at all (well at least to us it wasn't). 

Penne with Italian Sausage - It was alright, definitely not fantastic and I wouldn't go back for it actually. I'm not saying that they don't serve good food at Lambretta, but we just didn't really enjoy this particular dish we ordered. Everyone else's food looked and smelt so good though! 

As usual, we had to have a dessert after our meal

Awesome Tiramisu! It was very very very good! Both of us loved the cream portion of it but felt that it would have tasted so much better if it was colder. YUMYUMYUM!

The best dish of the day deserves a photo with us! LOL (:

So that's all we ordered!

Here are some photos of the interior of the restaurant - They're not very well taken sorry!!! 

Can you see the red mini bus frame thing behind that table? It actually honks! The owner of the restaurant presses the honk whenever customers are done with their meal and are on they're way out! Very cute! I think it means "Bye, take care, I hope you enjoyed your meal and see you again!!!!"

$15 - $25 per main

The Meal:
There were hits and misses so I'd say 2.5 donuts! Order wisely if you decide to eat there!

The Ambience:
Nice place, small and cosy, we liked it!

The Service:
Service was CRAZY SLOW from taking our orders to waiting for the food to come. We were famished by the time our food arrived (We hate waiting for food!). Other than that, the staff was friendly and nice (especially the boss!)

It wasn't bad, but given a choice, I would only visit Lambretta just for the Tiramisu. That's just me though. You guys might want to give it a try and order something else, it'll probably be good (:
