Time Out Says

Don’t let this restaurant’s location put you off – Taste of Italy might be in a mall, but it’s no fast food or food court joint. The eatery and deli, from highly decorated veteran Heinz Beck is a classy place to eat. It has a rustic, simple menu, filled with breads, pizzas and pastas, as well as soups, salads and more filling main courses. You can see it all being made in the open kitchen, and you can take home most of the ingredients from the well-stocked deli, which is a great touch. The antipasti platter is a winner, with excellent breads, olives and an array of Italian meats (but sadly no cheese), while the minestrone soup is packed with flavour, but the chefs have riffed on its traditional recipe and replaced the usual pasta with three arancini (which we are big fans of). The casarecce al ragu is possibly our favourite dish here – freshly made pasta (with the perfect amount of bite) in a rich tomato sauce with ground beef. It’s a dish that lets the simple ingredients shine, and gets extra marks for having chunks of meat rather than minced beef. Pizzas are also great, especially the white-based chard, prawn and stracciatella cheese version.
