I was a bit disappointed that Biota was fully booked out for Mother’s Day but that didn’t stop me from googling the next place to eat in Bowral. It didn’t take me long to find wonderful things being said about Caffe Rosso.
Mothers Day 2012~ Lunch $60 Dinner $75
Despite the limited menu choice because of the set menu, everything sounded delicious!
Gnocchi ai Quattro Formaggi– home made gnocchi served with a 4 Italian cheese sauce. Ok I tried to selfishly get Tim to order ‘Sea Scallops’ so I could eat his entree and have mine too. I was surprised to hear that he wanted to try the gnocchi considering he isn’t the biggest fan of cheese and I’m really not the biggest fan of gnocchi. Boy am I glad that he chose this though, I think I enjoyed it more than my entree! This has to be THE BEST GNOCCHI I have EVER eaten! They were parcels of light heaven and the sauce?! Well I close to licking the plate with no shame
Parppardelle tossed with slow braised beef cheek and rosemary ragu. You could tell that the pasta was fresh, it had a nice chewy texture and the sauce was subtle with nice tender beef through it.
Filletto Rossini– eye fillet wrapped with prosciutto on potato gallet and baby spinach, red wine mushroom jus. A delicious piece of steak cooked perfectly at medium rare. The spinach was a little salty but it gave more flavour to the potato.
Split King Tiger Prawns with a lemon chilli and parsley marinade. Fresh tasting prawns with a sweet yet grilled taste. Lucky we ordered pasta for entree, otherwise eating 6 prawns wouldn’t fill me.
Even without a booking the staff at Caffe Rosso were more than happy to cater for us. Food arrived promptly and the staff were very friendly. I was more than pleased with their food and would definitely come again to see what is on their menu.
