I had a date with Ms Curly Fries and unfortunately the restaurant we were planning on going to had a power outage *insert crying face* so of course, being the spontaneous people we were, we made our way Toorak road in search for a new date place. Reaching towards the end of the street, we eyed a quiet Italian restaurant, Fiorini’s Pizza & Italian and in we went. The staff were super duper friendly and were so patient as we looked over the menu to decide what we wanted to have.
Complimentary bread and olive oil with a dash of balsamic came out and the bread was fresh, hot and oh so fluffy.
With a few gourmet pizzas, we decided to get the ortolana which was basically vegetarian with capsicums, zucchini and mushrooms. It was fresh, it was light and it was not oily at all. It was a touch on the salty side but other then that, great!
Ortolana – $19.90 (med)
Pommarola, mozzarella, marinated red capsicums, zucchini, mushrooms, garlic, oregano
The seafood marinara was simple with fresh seafood. It was light and again not very oily and it was just oh so good!
Spaghetti Marinara – $24.90
Fresh market seafood in a tomato base
Whilst there weren’t many customers in the actual restaurant, we did notice that there were a lot of food deliveries which must means others are in their PJs having good Italian food! We will definitely come back and don’t be deterred from the quietness of the place, it’s a great hidden gem.
