Vapiano, Town Hall

We’re already fans of Vapiano’s fresh concept of making Italian dishes to order in front of you in a casual dining setting, so when we heard that they were doing some spring specials, we dropped in to see what would be on offer in the warmer months as Sydneysiders come out of hibernation. Tonight we’re trying a whole range of dishes (not just their pizza and pasta) compared to the last time we visited, which is very exciting. And what’s more exciting is that we’re running a competition to give you a chance to dine at Vapiano too! Keep reading for more details…

First up is a Classic Pumpkin Soup which is fairly smooth, but with a decently thick consistency. It’s served with some tasty garlic croutons, parmesan and basil, priming our appetites for more Italian goodness.

Icebergs Dining Room and Bar, Bondi

Icebergs Dining Room and Bar is the iconic restaurant perched on top of the cliffs above the famous Bondi Icebergs swimming pool and it has been on my list to visit for a while. The right occasion came up recently and even though it was in winter, we decided to head over to try it out. As I had expected, the upscale restaurant is elegantly decked out but still has a relaxed vibe as befits its beachside location. The mood lighting makes it an ideal spot for a date, combined with the panoramic views of the ocean and beach from the restaurant which are beautiful even at night, but I imagine it would be an even more stunning backdrop for a meal in summer.

Via Napoli Pizzeria, Lane Cove

It seems as though the worst kept secret in Lane Cove at the moment is Via Napoli, the buzzing authentic pizzeria serving up Naples style pizza that opened its doors late last year.  I first noticed Via Napoli when I drove past on a Sunday night and saw that it was still absolutely packed even though it was quite late. It wasn’t a one-off either – pretty much every other time I’ve driven past Via Napoli it has been packed to the rafters no matter what time of the day it is. Obviously I was intrigued and after a quick Google search to see what all the fuss was about, I booked a table with a group of my friends to try out their metre long pizzas for my birthday dinner.
