Upon minor research, Piccolo Roma surprisingly popped up as a new name, serving Modern Italian Cuisine in the Sydney Olympic Park vicinity.
The restaurant is considerably spacious in size and the staff were very attentive and friendly with taking our orders and subsequent services.
The menu covered your typical modern italian cuisine choices such as salads, pastas, risottos and pizza, with colourful graphics to match.
M & I were both keen on pastas that night and some Garlic Bread ($6) to start!
M ordered the Linguine Marinara ($26) which was a seafood dominated pasta, with fresh servings of scallops, baby calamari, mussels and tiger prawns, flamed in extra virgin oil and tossed in Napoli sauce.
He was happy with all the seafood but had commented that the pasta-sauce ratio could have improved as he felt it was a tad bit dry and consequently, the pasta overpowered the sauce.
I, on the other and, chose a more traditional pasta dish: Lasagne Al Forno ($22), your classic beef lasagne cooked with mozzarella cheese and Napoli sauce. I liked the presentation of the dish as it was a little unique in comparison to most restaurants, and it was quite delicious.
On the whole, Piccolo Roma wasn't too bad for Italian food however, personally I felt it was a little expensive in comparison to similar yet more price-friendly places such as Mammas Kitchen.
