Italian Masterpiece
Italian seems to never go out of fashion. In this review, I interview L'angolo Bistro manager Laura to find out what makes a great Italian restaurant and what sets L'angolo apart.

Cue a soft serenade, a smooth glass of red and the aroma of fresh mozzarella, and Signore e Signori – you're in Italy!

Or you could be at L'angolo Bistro, a delightful restaurant known as Brisbane's "little piece of Italy". Open seven days week L'angolo has a good reputation for organic and gluten-free pizzas. There pizza dough here is said to be "as soft as a cloud".

Me: Laura, what makes a great Italian restaurant?

Laura: Definitely the cuisine, so great food is a must. That's why our chefs are Italian and they really look after the quality of the products they use, and they cook the food as they used to do in Italy – at home.

We also have Italian staff at the front and that helps create an atmosphere and gives the customer not just a dinner or lunch, but an experience. They can hear our accent and ask us about our Italian traditions. We also serve Italian wines and beer.

Me: What sets L'angolo apart from other Italian restaurants?

Laura: The pizza. Our pizza is amazing. We have another restaurant in Red Hill, which is two years old, and L'angolo is like a sister restaurant. We won Best Pizza Restaurant in Queensland last September.

Me: Your pizza is said to be as soft as a cloud. Is this true?

Laura: [Laughs]. Yes! It's quite soft, but at the same time, it's crispy. The base is quite thin, so it doesn't get too crispy and dry.

About L'angolo Bistro

L'angolo Bistro is often described as informal and enjoyable. You can enjoy the fun, homey atmosphere from Monday to Sunday during the bustling lunch hour or for a start to a grand night out (12noon to 10:00pm).

L'angolo serves a combination of traditional and modern flavours that will have your taste buds singing in Italian. The chefs take humble pride in their divine cuisines.

L'angolo caters for children and adults. For the kiddies under 12 there is spaghetti with various sauces ranging from Napoli to Bolognese. The Bistro also serves kids Margherita Pizza with one small soft drink or juice included.

For the adults, L'angolo offers entrées including Bruschetta, Olive Fritte Ripiene, Calamari Fritti, Gamberi all'Arrabbiata (a hot pot of garlic with chilli prawns in a Napoli sauce served with toasted ciabatta bread and basil) and Polpette Della Nonna (veal meatballs in a Napoli sauce with shaved Pecorino with toasted ciabatta).

And the mains! This is where the fun begins. Lasagne, gnocchi, spaghetti ... Let us not forget the pizza, from Margherita and Alla Romana to Quattro Fromaggi e Salame and Patate e Salsiccia.

If you are up for dessert, I would recommend L'angolo's mouth-watering Tiramisù Semifeddo or Affogato al Caffé.

Like most Italian exports, L'angolo is truly a masterpiece.
