Ottimo – Hunters Hill

by Suha on May 15, 2011

It is amazing how many great restaurants are in Hunters Hill. Ottimo Italian Kitchen is another one that hits the spot. Casual, home style cooking by two brothers in law who are both chefs. They serve rustic southern italian cuisine in what feels like their living room. Loved the menu and there were so many things I wanted to try.

Crepes filled with ricotta and mushrooms oven baked with tomato passata – yum.

Homemade potato gnocchi with duck, porcini mushroom and green pea ragu – perfectly cooked gnocchi and a delicious sauce

Ricotta tart with cramalized fig – this was really interesting. The first bite of the top was so not what I expected. Just a soft cream like sauce that was a bit bland. But then – a deeper dig and bam…..beautiful caramel and sweet flavours made the dish. Nice.
