Cafe Nocello - Smoked Cod

This is the third time I’ve visited and continue to be impressed by the consistency and quality of the food produced. I really enjoyed the wood fired Capricciosa pizza with ample toppings on a soft base. The meaty smoked cod was delicious with that herbed butter sauce, as to the juicy king prawn, and the mash potato. I really loved the venison filled ravioli. There was plenty of delicious sauce to surround the tender pasta cases which added to the flavour. Couldn’t leave without getting some dessert and the homemade tiramisu is fantastic! I really really loved it and it was so delicious, soft, smooth, with a lovely coffee flavoured soaked sponge. The profiteroles were no slouch either, lovely soft choux pastry encasing a tasty light Italian custard and with some whipped cream and chocolate sauce, so yum. What a way to finish a delicious meal. . . . → Read More: Cafe Nocello – 22 Sep 2013

Cafe Nocello - 5 Aug 2012

I really enjoyed the wood fired Capricciosa pizza with a lovely light base, ample toppings and great flavours. The smoked trout ravioli was the highlight for me. While served with a creamy sauce, it wasn’t rich and had the perfect balance of ingredients. Enough smoked trout to give it’s flavour, lots of ricotta to add a creaminess, the spinach to dull things down, and the salty burst of the capers to present a contrast. The fettuccine con gamberi contained plenty of prawns and in well cooked pasta with the sauce, went down well. Despite the lunch being excellent, the bill was more than I expected. This place is a bit on the pricey side and recommend the takeaway option where most of the dishes can be had for a much cheaper price. Can’t fault the deliciousness of their food though. . . . → Read More: Cafe Nocello – 5 Aug 2012

Cafe Nocello - 15 Jan 2012

I enjoyed the simplicity of the wood fired pizza. It didn’t have much of a smoky coal flavour to the pizza base though but the toppings were ample and simple and allowed the flavours to shine through. The gelato is actually that of Il Gelato, the supplier of delicious gelato where I’ve eaten some of their delights at their Perth location. I was a bit stunned to get charged $9 for a scoop though. . . . → Read More: Cafe Nocello – 15 Jan 2012
