Friday Night in: Rosso Antico, Hakiki Ice cream via Deliveroo

After a crazy work week & a few late nights, the girls & I decided that it was long overdue for a Friday night in & some take out food. Yay Girls night in!

I jumped onto the Deliveroo App which lists the local eateries & opted for wood fire pizzas & Turkish  icecream for dessert. I choose the restaurant Rosso Antico, Newtown because I've tried their pizzas several times before & am yet to be disappointed by anything on their menu or service.

For 3 pizzas + entree we paid approx $70 which includes the $5 delivery fee. The Deliveroo App comes with a tracker which tells you how far your driver is and estimated our order to arrive in 40mins. I was surprised because we ordered on a Friday Night during peak time (7pm) but our door bell rang about 30mins after ordering with a friendly smile & the much anticipated food.

We ordered:
- Calzone Napolitano
- Prosciutto Pizza
- Diavola Pizza &
- Crocchette

The Calzone Napolitano (below) was my absolute favourite! The base was light & fluffy, the Napolitano toppings were full of flavour, igniting my tastebuds with every bite! The other pizzas were great also, making the perfect breakfast the morning after while we cleaned up the empty wine bottles :)

For dessert (besides the bottles of Merlot, hehe) we ordered 1L of Haikiki Turkish Icecream with 3 flavours. I'm almost certain that the same Deliveroo driver delivered the icecream within 15mins of ordering. 

$25 later we indulged ourselves in 3 flavours: Rockmelon & Feta, Baklava & Caramelized Fig & Walnut... Wow.  AMAZING! Eating through pieces of feta with a creamy light filled rockmelon flavoured ice cream is by far one of the most refreshing/deliciously exciting icecreams I've had all Summer! 

Overall, in summary, the food at Rosso Antico is always consistent so that's why I am a regular. The highlight was the Calzone although the pizza was great too. I love the crusts of the pizza. Just perfectly thin. 

With Hakiki, you can never go wrong with their unique flavours.

Deliveroo was quick & had friendly service. I found Deliveroo to be easy to use and great options to choose from. The only thing I would say about Deliveroo is that the Deliveroo App needs to have an edit function. E.g Calzone but add chilli flakes etc

Price per person: $35 between 3 of us with leftovers. Enjoy my lovelies!!
