Attimo, Northbridge

I’ve often written about my love of garlic prawns and I have to tell you, I had probably the best garlic prawns I’ve had in a long time at Attimo, an Italian restaurant in Northbridge. The garlic and chilli infused olive oil was still bubbling when the iron dish was placed in front of me and the balance of flavours was incredible. Many restaurants either have too much oil or not enough garlic, but Attimo’s was the perfect blend of smooth, garlicky, spicy goodness and I ended up mopping up every last drop of the lovely sauce with the provided bread. The prawns themselves were juicy and tender and my only complaint was that there were not enough!

I went with the roasted spatchcock for my main, which was also delicious. The spatchcock was full of flavour and extremely well cooked, with the meat falling off the bone.

For dessert, we shared the chocolate mousse and tiramisu. The mousse was creamy and had a rich, deep chocolate flavour, although the texture was far thicker and heavier than I expected; it was more of a frozen semi-freddo than a mousse.

The tiramisu was light and fluffy, and fortunately for me, did not have a particularly strong coffee taste (I’m not a fan of coffee).

TL;DR:

  • You have to order the garlic prawns, they are fantastic!
  • I didn’t try any, but my boyfriend said that the pizza he ordered was excellent.
