Challenges the Status Quo.

Walking along on a Monday night at Lygon Street with a friend in search for a decent place to eat, we stumbled across Copperwood Restaurant, Cafe & Bar. We chose to sit near an outdoor heater as the night was under the influence of winter. Nevertheless, once we were settled, the waitress came with the menu. The menu covered a myriad of choices from tapas, entrees, pizza, pasta, risotto and mains as well as wines and cocktails at reasonable prices.
We mutually decided to share the capricciosa pizza with thin slices of prosciutto, bocconcini cheese, mozzarella cheese, tomato and basil oil, shortly followed with gin and tonic and can of coke. The waitress immediately returned advising tonic was out of stock. I quickly ordered a can of coke for the sake of time.
Because it wasn't the typical Friday or Saturday night of crowded patrons, the alfresco certainly made it all pleasurable with soothing ambience of music allowing us to ease in to the night. The capricciosa pizza arrived within the 10-15 minutes and the aroma of freshly cooked pizza was adequately flavoursome and prepared simply without overpowering each main ingredient.
While I was eating the slice of pizza, I accidentally dropped my napkin on the ground and unexpectedly a waiter came towards our table to offer a new napkin. I was pleasantly surprised to the attentiveness of the waiting personnel of Copperwood. This positively surpassed our expectations of Copperwood.
8195; The only slight disappointment was the essential item of the non existent dessert selection. However, because the restaurant is situated in the heart of Lygon Street and synonymous to the plethora of dessert parlours you are definitely spoilt for choice.
