If you’re itching for Italian around Sydney’s cluster of Vietnamese eateries at Little Saigon Plaza, you’re in luck. Black Seed Australia is a homely, hearty, affordable but very professional Bankstown eatery where you can enjoy some serious Italian dining in a casual environment. Black Seed Australia’s venue (inside Little Saigon Plaza on Chapel Road) is family-friendly and able to host some sociable special occasions, and no matter who and how many you eat with you’re bound to be spared anybody complaining that they couldn’t find something to tickle their fancy on the menu. There are traditional Italian classics like risotto pollo and fillet gorgonzola, or some Australian twists such as a BBQ chicken or prawn pizza, as well as a huge range of nonna-style pasta dishes spaghetti vongole and penne napolitana. Bear in mind that you’re unlikely to be the only one in Bankstown with Black Seed Australia on your radar, so advance bookings are strongly advised.
