Mangiare e felicita; eating is happiness. This is a belief that most certainly resonates with me and that La Svolta lives by. Tucked away on Cecil Place in Prahran this authentic Italian trattoria is warm and friendly serving up traditional fare from all corners of 'The Boot'.
This pizzeria is favoured by our friends at Totem Onelove and was the perfect haven for a Stereosonic team dinner. The wonderful thing about dining in such astute company is knowing that no one is shy to eat and the ordering of many dishes to share is encouraged. The table was laden with crispy calamari, tasting plates brimming with cuts of cured meats and cheese, pizzas, pastas, more pastas, risotto and sides drowned with generous offerings of wine. This is teaming building at its best.
With each bite of happiness you know in your heart that the recipe was created by a Nonna somewhere. You can imagine a child clutching at legs, every inch of the kitchen bench top floured, each piece of pasta lovingly shaped whilst a big pot of passata bubbles away on the stove. If only all Italian dining experiences, outside of the home, were this humble, delicious and true.
