Mare Bianco: prawns, garlic and avocado in a brandy cream sauce.
Good food, made simple is the motto of Crento Italian Restaurant on Pittwater Road in Collaroy. This new bambino on the Northern Sydney beaches block sets the scene for casual ambient dining with dark wooden walls adorned with pot plants and black and white photography, while green leather banquette seating beckons for leisurely lunches and dinners. From a menu focused on Italian cooking styles without complicating things, say buon appetito to funghi bruschetta, with sautéed mushrooms on lightly toasted garlic bread, with shaved Parmesan and a hint of truffle oil. For a memorable main, delve into veal scaloppine in a white wine, lemon, garlic and olive oil sauce with shallots; or pick up a slice of BBQ pulled pork pizza, caramelised onion, capsicum and mozzarella on a Napolitana base.
