La Rustica, Canberra, Australia

Another week, another trip, another fine feed.

I’ve been to La Rustica several times before, and I think from memory I’ve always had the pizza, as the pizzas are good. And for the blokes around us, there’s always a bit of eye candy to help the evening along.

I was in Canberra to teach a course, that’s hungry and thirsty work. To solve that problem, I was catching up with a colleague who I’d worked with in a previous job who has also moved to work with IBM. I was staying in Kingston, so that’s where we decided to meet so we had plenty of scope to choose from.

After a beer an Filthy’s to wet our whistle it was off to La Rustica for our feast.

The wine list is quite good, and the prices aren’t over the top, so we decided to start off with a Pirie ‘South’ Pinot Noir… a good selection.

A pizza was ordered that would be shared, half Dom’s Special (no anchovies, you can keep those salty little buggers to yourself!) and half Salsicce. A very good choice in hindsight.

The pizza was excellent, and on the largish side, but when the dessert menu was proffered, and accepted, it was a magnificant (and I mean the best I have ever had) Tiramisu and a pretty good dessert wine (who’s name escapes me) that rounded out a great evening.

Oh, and Pat’s, the Hyatt dessert eating record holder, company was good too.
