True Blue – New summer menu at Il Pontile

“ If it’s three things that you can count on enjoying in Sydney during summer, it’s the dazzling harbour, fabulous dining, and fascinating people watching. Il Pontile – an Italian restaurant on historic Finger Wharf in Woolloomooloo – brings these things together to offer guests a delectable dining experience. And with the warm months upon us, there’s a new summer menu that is enough to have any Italophile giddy with excitement. Kick off with some king prawn carpaccio with truffle cream and powdered capers – a dish that is perfectly suited to a glass of bubbles or a Pinot Gris. The sourdough served with a soft-as-silk ricotta mousse and basil-infused olive oil is worth writing home about. For lovers of red meat, try the beef carpaccio with crispy parmesan crumble, with rocket sauce and caramelised pear. Or if you want to continue along the seafood path, the fried calamari and prawn basket is a signature snack. The handmade pastas are just like nonna makes them – the tagliatelle served Neapolitan-style with zucchini, basil puree and parmesan cheese puree, and the Gnocchi with cherry tomatoes served with provolone cheese fondue being standouts. Mains at Il Pontile are classic beauties. The premium angus eye fillet topped with truffle butter, and the enormous veal cutlet on the bone, served with cherry tomato sauce and Parmigiano Reggiano are both showstoppers. All of this while the sun sets on a sparkling harbour behind a non-stop parade of some of Sydney’s most well-heeled urbanites out making the most of a long, hot summer.”
