Taking pride of place at the top of Trafalgar Lane is one famiglia you can visit without being quizzed about your life goals!
With Italian dessert platters on the cards, we’re about ready to welcome Ristorante La Famiglia’s owners, Deb and Cosimo, into the annual family photo with open arms.
The laneway spot has combined trendy decor with a sophisticated throwback to the boot-shaped motherland – think exposed brick-meets-stylish black walls in a whirlwind combination of cultures, with a living herb wall and montages of scooters, wine and bowls of pasta leaving you absolutely no doubt of what’s on offer in the kitchen.
With a glass (or three) of their famous Puglian wine on hand and a host of antipasto selections to nibble on, Ristorante La Famiglia is tough to beat for quick lunch and cityside catch-ups. Be warned, though: you’ll struggle to pull yourself away after a glance at the heartier menu choices – not to mention their famous Tuesday gnocchi nights!
