Boasting a menu packed with classic Italian cuisine as well as some international favourites, Shanikas At Vale in Melbourne’s Packenham area offers something for everyone, making it an ideal choice for a group dinner or special family meal out. Begin with some lemon myrtle calamari, crisp pork belly and scallop or pan-fried quail with almond gazpacho, grapes, cucumber and witlof.

With dessert options like vanilla bean creme brulee, dulce de leche (baked cheesecake with macadamia nuts and banana ice cream), you’re going to want to squeeze in room for more, and after all that delicious food you’ll probably need a pick me up – we recommend the espresso martini cocktail.
