Belluci's, Dickson (Canberra)
I'm surprised at the 53% like rate on Urbanspoon. I thought the rating was a bit harsh. Belluci's must be doing something right in the Canberra area as they have expanded over the years into a number of different restaurants. I went to the Dickson restaurant which is attached to the Sub-Urban Bar.
My work colleague ordered the Vitello Saltimbocca (above) which he ordered 10 years ago and wanted to come back. He profoundly claimed it was just as good as it was 10 years ago. The dish was pan fried veal medallions with prosciutto, sage, soft polenta, asparagus and pan jus. The Vietello Saltimbocca was $32 and seemed a very small price for a decade of waiting of deliciousness.
I ordered the Spaghetti Marinara (above) which was good. It was a solid pasta dish, Not the dish I would be waiting for 10 years but it was a good dish. The linguine in tomato based sauce was accompanied by selection of prawns, squid and mussels. It was a fresh tasting dish topped with parmesan cheese.
Check it out.
Prices: $30-35 for mains
Location: Corner of Cape St and Woolley Street in Dickson, Canberra
