We all have special memories of home…as a multi-cultural nation, Australia embraces many different ethnicities, who have chosen to make this country home.
With the global pandemic curbing not only international travel but also preventing us from travelling interstate to visit family and friends, we have all had to make sacrifices.
What evokes memories of home for you? Is it the smell of fragrant tropical flowers, an Indian curry simmering in the kitchen, or the aroma of coconut suntan oil? Whatever sets off those waves of homesickness, we have you covered.
Every Friday, AGFG will highlight a restaurant, venue, or product from around the globe and this week we are heading to Italy:
Create lasting memories with family and friends at Capriccio Osteria & Bar on Norton Street in Leichhardt. Expect Italian fare with a modern Australian twist, in warm and cosy surrounds downstairs, where the wood-fired oven roars to life; while on balmy days the covered courtyard beckons as a great place to relax with a glass of red.
A must-have dish that reminds people of Italy:
Squid ink spaghetti - tender blue swimmer crab meat with housemade squid ink spaghetti, chilli, basil and lashings of olive oil.
What restaurant features remind people of home?
Capriccio Osteria is recognisable with its brighter than bright lemon motif, the restaurant combines fresh produce with a contemporary relaxed dining experience, Amalfi Coast-style.
Why dining here helps guests feel like they have hopped on a plane back to Italy?
When you arrive at Capriccio, you are greeted at the door and welcomed into our home the Italian way - there are lingering smells of pasta sauces and woody scents from the wood-fired oven. As you wine and dine in our restaurant’s atmosphere and finish your meal with beautifully chilled limoncello, you will feel as though you are in Positano.
