Up until I was invited to taste the winter menu, I was oblivious to the existence of this urban and trendy restaurant, even though I’ve walked past it several times. This is because it’s discreetly tucked away in a small shopping centre in Hyde Park. When I walked in, I was surprised by its vibrant atmosphere.  The subtle décor with different shades of brown furniture paired with lush green plants and a pop of colour made me feel relaxed and calm.

Lamb Cutlets and The Sriracha Prawns. 250x250 - REVIEW: Zio La Famiglia

I was eager to taste what Alessandro “Alex” Khojane, the owner of Zio La Fagmilia, and his team had to offer. And, I was not disappointed. For starters, I enjoyed sriracha prawns with garlic butter and prickled pineapple salsa.  I loved the subtle tanginess of the pineapple that was balanced out by the garlic. The second starter was a steamed brioche bun that when cut open had a soft pork shoulder served with spicy soy dipping sauce and sesame mayo. The dipping sauce was the key ingredient for me as it blended all the flavours together.  Mediterranean pasta with prawns, olives, cherry tomato, basil, garlic and white wine was served as one of the mains. I loved that this pasta dish did not have a thick sauce, and it was filling. I also tasted the delicious lamb cutlets served with couscous, green beans and tahina yoghurt. For dessert, I had a delicious and soft chocolate and walnut brownie.
