Housemade gnocchi, with porcini mushrooms and sausage.
There’s nothing quite like fresh Italian pizza and pasta and that’s what awaits Ivanhoe diners at JOIA Cucina on Upper Heidelberg Road. This new bambino on the block rocks a stylish vibe of high communal tables along with intimate settings for two, while the brightly lit neon signage and scooter parked alongside show the restaurant’s cheeky side. Settle in with a glass of red and watch the Chefs in the open kitchen as you ponder a menu offering housemade pizza bases and wonderful combinations, as well as signature pasta dishes such as fresh seafood in tomato sauce. Perhaps say ciao to a starter of calamari, rocket and aioli, before picking up a slice of gamberi e porcini – mozzarella, porcini mushrooms, prawns, zucchini, Grana Padano and basil – for a divine dolci, don’t go past tiramisu.
