Restaurant Review: L’angolo Bistro

langolo-sign

L’angolo Bistro means ‘the angle’ in Italian, as the restaurant is right on the corner of the building in Hamilton Harbour. I was invited to attend a tasting event last night. L’angolo Bistro menu consists of authentic traditional dishes, as well as more modern interpretations. They also try to use fresh and organic ingredients where possible, this includes pizza dough from organic flour and a selection of organic and biodynamic wines. The menu includes many gluten free, vegan and dairy free options. 

I settled into the comfy bench seats and here’s what we tasted:

langolo-anchovies

Anchovies marinated in a Chardonnay Vinegar, with breadcrumb and Fior di Latte – fresh and not at all fishy as I was expecting!

langolo-calamari

Deep Fried Baby Calamari served with Basil Pesto Mayo and Lime – tender sticks of calamari that were cooked just right.

langolo-meatballs

Delicious tomatoey meatballs made using grandma’s recipe.

langolo-pizza

An authentic thin pizza base – pizza with mozzarella, Italian pistachios, grated zucchini, diced tomatoes, parma prosciutto and shaved grana.

langolo-rissotto

Risotto with prawns and asparagus in a lobster bisque – was impressively presented and cooked to al dente.

langolo-lasagne

Homemade mushroom and spinach lasagna with black truffle bechamel.

langolo-pasta

My personal favourite of the night was tagliatelle with marinated quails, pancetta and Sardinian Mirto. The homemade saffron egg pasta was divine.

langolo-pork

By this stage I was getting close to full, and the pork belly came in a close second favourite. The crispy skin was perfect (hint: turn it upside to cut it) and it was served with truffle mashed potato and mushroom sauce.

langolo-brownie

The Italian Dark Chocolate and Almond Tarte reminded me an American brownie.

langolo-donut

The Traditional Italian donuts were filled with a delightful Chantilly Cream and served with hot chocolate.

langolo-truffles

And lastly there was just enough room to pop in an decadent Italian Chocolate Truffle filled with pistachios and walnuts.

Overall I was impressed by the quality and variety of dishes we were served.

L’angolo Bistro is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, while also offering a small aperitvo menu in keeping with the Italian lifestyle.
