PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS
Bar Reggio's Italian-born staff have continually satisfied customers with generous servings of traditional Italian and modern Australian cuisine for over 20 years (and the decor has changed much of the years either). Comparatively, it's a large and busy inner-city noshery and this is tribute to Reggio's culinary popularity among knowing locals and others. The dimmed lighting and rustic wall finishings decorated with hand-painted frescos of Italian provincial scenery complete Reggio's warm and homely Italian ambience, wonderfully complementing the meals' fresh and substantial servings. Whether eating inside or in the outdoor courtyard, the restaurant has a fun, friendly, family atmosphere favourable to chatting with groups of friends.
The sizzling gourmet pizza selection features the bacon and egg Australiana, and a local suburb special named Palmer Street with pineapple, pepperoni, onion, chilli and mushrooms is certain to please anybody caught by those unavoidable cravings. A daily specials menu will delight a more discerning diner, sporting dishes such as a scrumptious whole grilled barramundi. The calves liver with onion and bacon sauce is a popular traditional Venetian classic, while an Aussie special, the kangaroo fillet, lightly sauteed in a porcini and port wine sauce, is heavenly, leaving one wondering why beef is more common. There's a full seafood menu and quality mains ranging from a pollo Milanese to barbecued quail and an equally fine selection of risottos. For that lunchtime meeting, the fantastically priced focaccias are a pleasant surprise. In every meal you'll find something tasty, filling and fresh and at a very reasonable price.
