Pentolina (Invited)

Pentolina it's a small pasta bar in Little Collins St. They have limited tables and bar seatings with no high chair available for kids. It's safe to say they are more an adult place even though I saw a couple of children in the restaurant, including my kid. The place is lively and packed, service was fast at first but a bit die down at the end. They give us the feed me menu so we left our faith to them.

Prosciutto Melone - san daniele prosciutto, rockmelon + bocconcini ($9) and Calamari ($15). Always love combination of prosciutto and rockmelon, salty and sweet always have an appeal to me. So it's safe to say that I love it. Then fried calamari came in, who doesn't love a very well seasoned and cooked calamari right?

Special pasta, elevated version of mac and cheese, Casarecce Alle Zucchine - zucchini, fresh basil, mint, garlic ($19), Insalata Caprese -buffalo mozzarella, tomato, evoo + basil ($14). Both of the pasta were al dente, lightly seasoned but flavourful. Making it enjoyable to be eaten in a large amount of quantity. Love the buffalo mozzarella, always a weak spot for it.

Panna Cotta - berry & brandy ($13). Ended with a bang! One of the best panna cotta in Melbourne for sure. So light, so creamy and it's all about the panna cotta indeed. Not too much garnish on the side but enough for freshness and oh yeah brandy.
