Italian

Sette Bello, Glen Waverley

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on October 29, 2012

I know Father’s Day was almost 2 months ago, I somehow subconsciously avoided blogging about the dinner I had together with my family and Yuye’s family that day until now. I blame it on the sheer number of dishes we ordered and the restaurant visits following that one, resulting in me pushing the review back…Yes [...]

Universal Restaurant, Carlton

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on August 26, 2012

Are there restaurants where it always becomes default if you’re too lazy or just don’t know where you want to eat? There’s a few like that for me. One of them (probably not the best out there but is quite consistent) is Universal Restaurant on Lygon Street. It’s within walking distance from a friend’s place [...]

Brunetti, Carlton – cakes, desserts, ice cream

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on June 5, 2012

Melbourne is really spoilt for choice when it comes to good desserts. There’s the popular places like Chez Dre, La Belle Miette, LuxBite and Burch & Purchese Sweet Studio, but not surprisingly, all of these places close reasonably early with LuxBite opening until the latest at 8pm. So where would one go for a late [...]

D.O.C Pizza & Mozzarella Bar, Carlton

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on May 26, 2012

I mentioned that the queue at Mamasita is one of the worst in Melbourne, but yet the wait that night was not even a quarter of the wait at D.O.C Pizza and Mozzarella Bar in Carlton. There’s a good reason for that. We went to D.O.C. on a busy Friday night at 7pm without a [...]

Piccolino Pizza Restaurant, Mount Waverley

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on January 10, 2012

Ever since I was small, I loved watching documentaries. I’d get mesmerised by the deep soothing voices coming out of the TV and the mysterious happenings that I could not understand. I especially liked unsolved cases such as Marilyn Monroe’s death and what the true meaning of Mona Lisa’s smile was. I would often look [...]

L’Olivo, East Malvern

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on July 6, 2011

Are you a person who likes to order everything on the menu? I know I do and I do it all the time. At the conclusion of every meal when I order too much, I tell Yuye to stop me next time so I don’t make the same mistake again. But you know what? It’s [...]

Fiorini’s, Toorak

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on December 15, 2010

We were after a quick meal near Jeff’s school just before his concert the other night and a family friend suggested Fiorini’s on Toorak Rd. It serves traditional Italian dishes such as pizza and pasta but also offers steaks and other mains if that’s what you fancy. The friend said she goes there all the [...]

Cafe Trevi, Lygon St Carlton

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on December 6, 2010

I want to go to a nice pizza place for lunch” Jeff (my younger brother) said when I picked him up from the airport after a week of sun and fun at schoolies in the Gold Coast. I decided Lygon St might be a good place to start. Yuye suggested trying a new place this [...]

+39 Pizzeria, Lt Bourke St Melbourne

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on November 3, 2010

+39 is my favourite pizza joint in Melbourne. It is also probably a favourite for many others as it has been voted The Best Pizzeria Of The Year 2010 in The Age Cheap Eats. It also has an interesting name – every time I went I wondered what it meant and recently I found out [...]
