Critic's review

Linda Scarborough

Food
The beautiful new menu is loaded with tempting options. You might find yourself pointing to a photograph to order. Even if you’ve been to Col’Cacchio many times before, you will find something that appeals. Start with a vegetarian antipasti platter generously loaded with artichokes and zucchini ribbons in a delicious dressing of lemon, olive oil and black pepper. Enjoy along with a bowl of olives, Caprese salad, marinated peppers, and a mini focaccia, which you can tear up to soak up all the sauces.

This alone would make a satisfying lunch, but you might be compelled to look to the famous pizzas, whether you like a traditional topping of fresh basil and fior de latte or unorthodox jerk chicken with corn, caramelised onions and mint. Crusts are deliciously smoky, crisp and chewy in all the right ways. The pasta section is short but covers all the bases. The portion of Bolognese is enough for three meals, really, topped with real grated parmesan and garlic crumbs. Simple and delicious. A carb-conscious section and some great salads look after the more virtuous diner.

If you have room for dessert, try citrusy pancakes, Italian kisses, profiteroles, tiramisu or croissant bread-and-butter pudding.

Drinks
Expect cocktails and mocktails in tall glasses with lots of ice and festive garnishes.

Service
Not terribly sharp, but friendly enough.

Ambience
Unfussy, with brown paper on the tables. Dim during the day, a little bright at night. At lunchtime it’s filled with suits from the business district this end of town.

And…
If you don’t want pizza or pasta (perhaps you got lost?) then try a light meal like a wrap.
