As we said, Giro Osteria Sydney celebrates the Italian way of life in each and every way. With an expansive dining room, outdoor seating and some of the coolest art we’ve ever seen, this is sure to become your new favourite Italian restaurant in Cronulla. Speaking of the art, you’ll find 1950s-style black and white photos – very Sofia Loren – with splashes of colourful salami, pizza or tomatoes superimposed over the top… it works and we love it! While you’re taking all of it in, we recommend ordering some antipasti like the organic pork meatballs smothered in tomato sugo; polenta and parmesan chips with truffle sauce and the salami board. Then, perhaps a Negroni or an Aperol spritz?
Pasta lovers should keep a close eye out for the heavenly gnocchi cooked in a burnt butter, sage and gorgonzola sauce; pappardelle with mushrooms and truffle pecorino and the fregola cooked with clams and tomato. Though let’s be honest, it’s all delicious. If you’re after something from the sea or land, the acqua pazza snapper or beef cheek cooked in red wine and served with potato mash will have you feeling mighty fine indeed. Giro Osteria is tucked away on McDonald Street in Cronulla and is a must for Sydney locals or visitors with a weakness of Italian cuisine. Bookings are essential to avoid disappointment.
