FAMILY STYLE DINNER WITH FRIENDS- BUZZING – SERVICE -OILY -HEARTY
OUT OF 10
FOOD– 7 SERVICE– 8 DECOR- 7 PRICE– MODERATE VIBE– FUN, COSY
Morandi has become a neighbourhood favourite for me and my friends because well…. we always have a good time.
Like having a family dinner with your Friends, Morandi feels like a big old Italian Grandmas house. Walls covered in wood and brick make it cosy any time of year. The Brunch is fantastic and since the restaurant is so big sometimes you can get seats last minute however on a weekend night good luck without serious lead time!
On a Rainy October Night, 6 of my friends went to Morandi and sat at a big table where we couldDrink Wine and Be Merry.
The food is good, reliable and so is the service. The food won’t rock your culinary world but it’s good enough to keep everyone happy, moderately priced and always guarantee a good time and good conversation.
The Branzino E Pomodori Verdi roasted bass with green tomatoes, onions & oregano was simple and fresh, not very bold but what would be expected from a good italian kitchen.
Throughout the evening service is attentive, buzzing and you feel at home.
One hungry friend of mine ordered very lightly then at the end of the meal wanted a last minute “hit the spot” pasta which was asked to be rushed. He asked “how long will it take?” to the helpful waitress, she replied “15 minutes”, my friend replied “if you can make it faster that would be great” – it was out in less than 5 minutes. Now thats service for a hungry boy!
The meal with 3 bottles of wine cost about $75 per person and was a good neighbourhood spot to start the night before going clubbing at the Boom Boom Room.
KEEP IT SWEET AND MEATY (and maybe not so oily)
