When you hear Site Pizza, you would assume this eatery specialises pizza but I uncover a few other hidden gems on this menu. 3kg of Nutella anyone with a few glasses of wine?
Site Pizza is located in Little Bay, a sleepy little town in the Eastern Suburbs. I thought the place was all pizzas howeverSite Pizza is an Italian restaurant with so much more than just pizza on their menu.
I dine with my mate QHL and we both start eyeing off the pizzas that are being served to a table nearby. I'm looking at the menu eyeing off the pizza and pastas, maybe a steak.
QHL shocks me and orders the seafood chowder ($19, below). This is a dish I would never order as it sounds so out dated. I'm actually surprised though as this was such a pleasant dish. A light flavoursome and creamy dish broth has a medley of prawns, scallops, mussels and squid. I dip the accompanying bread into the broth. A definite recommend. It's so yummy and I hi5 QHL on his choice.
Ask the staff what the specials are because they were pretty awesome. I felt like hi5ing QHL again but I think he had enough.
There were specials on the day. I had quite a few including salt and pepper squid, zucchini flowers, arancini and shaved beef carpaccio. I am a massive fan of arancini. The arancini is filled with rice, bacon and mushroom which makes a killer combination. This was way too much food for two people. I definitely over ordered.
Naturally, being an Italian restaurant - Site Pizza has an extensive range of pastas and pasta. Above is the pappardelle with duck ragu ($28). It's a thick pasta in a well seasoned tomato based sauce and the duck ragu was so tender. Great dish, very filling.
I am a prawn lover so I go nuts with the Gamberi pizza ($18 for medium, below) which is a cheesey, chilli prawn pizza. The medium size is a very decent size and I can't get enough of this pizza. I probably had the biggest foodgasm with the pizza. This pizza was just perfection for me. My fave. I can't contain my excitement for this pizza and QHL gives me the "calm down look".
Even though I had an epic meal, I made sure to make room for the nutella calzone ($20, below). It was literally bursting of nutella which make swirling the chocolate in my mouth a bit more special. I sip a glass of wine and down more nutella. Oh yeah. I was very excited overall.
Highlights: The Gamberi Pizza was sooo f*#king good. I am having foodgasms thinking about it. All the dishes were very tasty and I think the seafood chowder is definitely worth a try. I over ordered, this amount of food was probably more suitable for 3-4 people. The large pizzas are definitely worth sharing.
This place is definitely worth the drive if you live in the surrounding suburbs.
