“The Ladro dining experience is authentic, generous and represents fantastic value for money”
Recently I set myself the challenge to find a fine wine and dining experience for my friend’s birthday, Ladro Fitzroy was the suggestion – why not I thought….?
Tucked away in Gertrude Street Fitzroy, we were greeted and seated immediately. Beverages were offered and we chose some fine Sauvignon Blanc and a Sorbetto Mocktail, just for something different! Watching the bubbling sorbet, it reminded me of the popular “spider” drink from my youth.
Starters: Brushetta Caprese with tomato, mozzarella di bufala, and aged balsamico.
Mains: After viewing the incredible choices, we decided on the specials of the day:
- Pasta Ravioli Verdure Con Ricotta, Asparagus, Broadbeans with Sage and Porcini Brown Butter Arrosto – ‘Agnello’
- Shank braised in tomato and Eggplant with Fregola & Grilled Zucchini
Dessert: Cinnamon donuts served with honey and caramel macadamia ice cream. Deliciously delicate, tasty and perfect to share after the beautiful mains.
The flavours did not disappoint. We were very impressed and sent our compliments to the chef on departure.
Our dining experience was most satisfying. Service was outstanding and clearly the highest quality ingredients had been used.
Gluten Free Pizza also available!!
