Location: On Parramatta’s well-known ‘eat street’ – Church Street – in Sydney’s west.
Details: Having recently expanded to a second location in Darling Harbour, the original Criniti’s has long been lauded for its combination of friendly service, lively atmosphere and delicious Italian food. The modern restaurant is accented with vintage photographs of Italian celebrities, while simple timber dining tables and chairs evoke the rustic charm of the menu’s homeland.
Food & beverage: Criniti's menus centre on traditional southern Italian dishes, offering customers a broad choice of meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Start your day with the signature Criniti’s Toast – fried Italian bread with your choice of butterscotch sauce and cream, or maple syrup and banana. Dine on the likes of the Nonna’s Bruschetta with goat’s cheese, artichokes and marinated mushrooms come midday, and sample Criniti’s famous woodfired pizza for lunch and dinner. Innovative toppings include‘campagnola’ with Italian sausage, zucchini flowers, basil, mozzarella and goat’s cheese, as well as the ‘vitello’ with marinated veal, garlic, oregano, basil and mozzarella. There are plenty of sweet treats to finish off the meal, such as the specialty Nutella Bomba, a pizza pocket filled with the famous chocolate spread, coated with cinnamon and served with vanilla bean gelato. Criniti’s is also fully licensed, serving a range of tasty cocktails and mocktails, plus local and imported wines and beers.
