Pasta Is Better at Cafe Cavallino

To really taste pasta, you need to eat at a proper italian restaurant.
Heaven knows that Cafe Cavalino gets that right.

Location


Based off Lygon street you could get lost in the myraid of italian eateries.
However, there is only one that really stands out. The building itself is old and the restaurant is one of the oldest Italian food services in the area.

Food

I really liked that they had their pasta and toppings separately. Because of this, I could try Gnocchi Carbonara. A combination previously unavailable to my palette.

This dish was perfection from start to finish. The sauce was light and creamy and the bacon was tender and cut in good sizes that made you open your mouth just that little bit wider to enjoy. Plus it almost tasted like they had freshly cured it.

And the gnocchi. Oh my lawd. (Imagine me waving my arms around like an Italian) – gawd damn it was fresh and unbelivably amazing.

The only draw back was that it wasn’t served too hot so the meal would still be warm as we kept eating it. It’s such a minor thing that no points will be lost because of it.

Look. For what I consumed, this image is the only one that springs to mind.

Ambiance

We chose to eat outside on the walkway. Yes, it has it’s pros and cons but given that it was a perfect Melbourne night and the company would have been too loud for the indoors, it made sense we enjoy it outside. Besides, it’s better being outdoors any day!
