Lunch @ Della Nonna

We're still in an experimental mood even after our breakfast experience. We decide to dip our toes in at Della Nonna.

Della Nonna is a world away from it's previous incarnation as the Courtyard Deli. It certainly looks like the new owners basically gutted the place and have moved it from the 1970's to become a stylish modern cafe - complete with wood burning pizza oven.

We start with some of the meat-stuffed Olives


hot, crisp, salty, meaty - they tick the boxes to get your appetite going.

We decide to test out the pizza


Paalo opts for the prosciutto - on a cooked tomato base, freshly sliced prosciutto, rocket and shaved parmesan are draped over the hot pizza topped with a final drizzle of olive oil before it's bought to the table


I order the Pizza Bianco - white pizza with mushrooms.

We are pretty impressed with both pizzas - the bases are lovely and thin, perfect for folding and certainly do remind up of those we enjoyed in Italy.

The details:
