Amo Roma, Sydney, Australia

I was in Sydney for an evening so decided to try somewhere new for dinner after a couple of refreshing beers. We were imbibing at Circular Quay and decided to head down to the rocks to find somewhere to eat.

There are many choices in that part of Sydney: steak, Italian, Thai… but we decided to try an Italian restaurant called Amo Roma on George Street.

Typical Italian fare was on offer and a Parmesan pizza bread was ordered for starters, a simple but tasty start to the meal.

For my main dish I chose the eponymous Amo Roma pizza which was a thin crust pizza with salami, ham, capsicum, mushroom, tomato sauce and mozzarella, my friend ordered the Kangaroo pizza with spanish onion, capsicum, blueberry glaze, tomato sauce and mozzarella.

The pizzas were were large, extremely tasty and not overly packed with toppings, so probably more in the real Italian style rather than the heaped toppings we’re probably used to in Australia.

We washed our meal down with a reasonably priced Italian Fattoria Zerbina Ceregio Sangiovese.

A good meal that came to around $100 for the two of us.
