About Me

Food is one of my many joys in life. It is a common bond I share among my friends and family. Combining food and travel makes it all the more interesting. I enjoy going out for a good meal with friends and family. The array of various cuisines and our fantastic array of produce really makes Sydney such a great city to live in. Blogging is my hobby and my posts on restaurant meals I have had are paid for and not gratis. Any gratis provided to me will always be stated beforehand.

Lemoncello Cafe and Restaurant

Lemoncello is located in the suburb of West Pennant Hills. It was suggested by NF when we were trying to decide where we would go for dinner. He had been there before and had enjoyed his meal.

So we headed there, and I was surprised at how full the place was. It turned out to be a rather popular Italian restaurant. Good thing we booked for dinner a few days earlier.

We had a lovely meal, chatting and enjoying our dishes. It was a good catch up. Admittedly, it was not one of those quiet restaurants, i.e. there was quite a lot of background noise, so it was a little difficult sometimes to hear each other but we somehow managed.

For entree, we had Mushroom stuffed with chorizo and served with pumpkin mash (one of the daily specials) and Char-grilled field mushrooms served with haloumi cheese. I quite enjoyed my stuffed mushroom and EF's field mushroom dish was quite a large serving and she did struggle to finish it.

For mains, we had the Pork Loin stuffed with spinach and capsicum, rolled with prosciutto and served with a honey and mustard sauce and Tuscan cabbage. EF decided on the Pollo Zucca which was chicken breast with cream of pumpkin, baby spinach and pine nuts. NF and I thoroughly enjoyed our pork loin.

We somehow found some space for dessert. There was the Berry cheesecake (daily special), Vanilla Bean Creme Brûlée and Hazelnut Meringue. Suffice to say, we all enjoyed dessert. Not much left on our plates after we finished eating!!

Lemoncello is a nice Italian restaurant in suburbia. The staff were attentive and friendly. I enjoyed my time there and I would visit it again. Next time I might try one of their many pasta dishes.

The stuffed pork loin and hazelnut meringue looks good. Interesting to find this Italian in the north-west suburbs.
