A lovely Italian cafe with great food and good service
With so many dining options on offer here in South Yarra, it is easy to walk past the Cinque Pizzeria without a second thought. However, those who do are missing out on something rather special.
Cinque Pizzeria, is a beautiful restaurant, which is warm and welcoming with the waitresses being helpful without being overbearing. Furthermore, the layout of the restaurant is simple, yet comfortable and this idea that simple is more extends to the menu. The menu which is large but manageable offers classic menu items like Margherita pizza, Spaghetti Bolognese, and others that one would expect in an Italian restaurant.
Despite the simple nature of the menu, the food is still delicious. Everyone at the table agreed that their meals were very good and above their expectations. The calamari was cooked for just the right amount of time, the sauce that went with the calamari had the right about of herbs, the chips were hot as well as crispy and the balance in the Funghi sauce was perfect.
All in all, it was a lovely restaurant with great staff and good food at a reasonable price, making for a lovely evening out.
