Dining Out Lifestyle

Foodies can visit Italy without leaving home

DANIEL Mari loves nothing more than indulging diners keen to enjoy his mouth-watering food and welcoming atmosphere as they step through the doors at Pikkio Pizzeria Trattoria in Panania.

Judged to have the best wood-fired pizza in Sydney in 2005, Daniel spent time running a successful restaurant in Ascoli Piceno, Rome, before opening his popular Pikkio Pizzeria.

“Our chef has just returned from Rome gathering many great ideas to incorporate into our menu, including our weekly blackboard specials which change all the time and feature the best of Italy’s regional cuisine,” he said.

“My goal is always to provide a place where people can meet, relax and grow their relationships over evenings sharing authentic Italian cuisines.

“The casual dining ambience offers an experience that is high on value with top quality fresh food, inspired by Italian flavours.”

You can choose from a delicious array of antipasti, a huge range of pizzas and pastas, and mains including veal scaloppine (with mushroom and white wine sauce), eye fillet (with red wine reduction and lemon butter chat potatoes), homemade squid ink spaghetti (in a white seafood sauce), Osso Bucco (with lemon and orange zest and saffron rice) or pork fillet (with mixed mushrooms in a white wine sauce).

Along with a children’s menu, there is also an amazing range of sides, salads and desserts like tiramisu, gelato, chocolate lava pudding with vanilla custard, salted caramel and chocolate ganache tart, lemon lime cheesecake or creme brulee – with everything made inhouse from scratch and using only fresh, high quality ingredients.

Fully licensed with local and imported craft beer available, Daniel says takeaways are also available with home delivery via Uber Eats.

“We open daily at 5.30pm (Sunday from 5pm and closed Mondays) but for functions and banquet catering, we welcome lunchtime bookings, especially on the weekend,” Daniel added. “We’re very flexible and can host parties to cater for any budget or palate too.

“Book out a room for your next office function or family celebration. 

“We can guarantee you a memorable occasion.”
