Luckily, you don’t have to worry because today, we are here to give you the inside scoop on where the best Italian restaurants are around the city. So, save this article, or write it down if you’re into that, so you know exactly where to take your date the next time they want to eat some Italian food that’s more than just spaghetti.
Ristorante La Famiglia [Woolloongabba]
Tucked away somewhere in Trafalgar Lane, Ristorante La Famiglia specialises in Southern Italian dishes. That includes spatchcock and clam linguine, both of which will go well with one of their many wines.
Once you’re both full from the exquisite taste of Southern Italy, top the evening off with dessert. We recommend mini cannoli. Choose to go on a Tuesday evening where the restaurant offers gnocchi night.
