Just when you thought the cold weather was going to suck out the sunshine from Sydney, an Italian feast has dropped on our doorstep, and you best be wearing stretchy pants.
Festa Italiana has arrived at Fratelli Fresh offering you and your mates two hours of tasty espresso martinis, Aperol Spritz, beer and wine for only $29—not a typo.
But that's not all, you'll be dining on a three-course share-style menu ($50pp) featuring Fratelli’s signature antipasti board covered in cured meats, buffalo mozarella, olives and bruschetta. But don't get too full, because you'll then have your pick of margherita or diavola pizza (hand us that spicy salami) as well as slow-braised lamb ragu, tagliatelle pasta with mussels, white wine, garlic and cherry tomatoes, and gnocchi with creamy Goat's cheese, all served with wild rocket parmesan salad. Whoever's not fighting over the last slice will get first dibs on dessert, which is two scoops of dreamy gelato.
Best yet? Festa Italiana is on every weekend (Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday) and perfect for every occasion so you can lock in a hens, bucks as well as your next silly season long lunch.
