La Vigna

Back in high school the girls and I would find ourselves at Leichhardt every weekend, we ate our way through most of the restaurants there and the staff knew us by name. I’m not quite sure what happened, but I suspect that we all became so consumed with work that convenience and free parking became the priority.

Tonight we went back to our roots and had dinner at Cafe La Vigna at the Italian Forum in Leichhardt. Finding parking in Leichhardt is always a nightmare especially on a Friday night, but the food and atmosphere is well worth it.

Here the servings are generous and good value for money. Entrees range from $5 to $12 dollars and mains from $12 to $23. You get to a point where you spend so much at restaurants that paying $35 per person seem like an absolute bargain! (this included 2 big courses, a mocktail and a tip for the waiter)
Penne Pasta with sundried tomato, fresh peas in a cream sauce
The meat and Seafood platter for 2
Don't be deceived by the picture because this platter was HUGE and could easily feed 4 people I think the platter was around $50? The 2 couples that ordered a platter each barely ate a half and they are not ones to hold back.

Chicken Fungi served with fries

Warm calamari salad

Saganaki with seafood and rice, served with a tomato based sauce

Greek Salad

Spaghetti Marinara

Happy Birthday Katina!!!
