Ecco il Ristorante located at the heart of Toorak Road just literally 5 minutes walk from South Yarra Station.
It gives you the premium, neat and classic Italian look with all the white table clothes all over the tables in the main floor.
Our bloggers night located at their private functions upstairs.
We started with fried calamari with green chilli and lime aioli and their traditional caprese salad (with buffalo mozzarella, basil dressed with EVO).
Loved the chili lime aioli just a hint of chili so it was fine for non spicy lover.
We also ordered their Focaccia al Prosciutto wood fire pizza with fresh buffalo mozzarella, garlic, oregano, salt, rosemary, EVO and fresh tomato.
Need I tell you how fragrant the pizza was and taste so fresh and delicious. If you enjoyed fresh kind of pizza you will definitely like this one – definitely enjoyed the savory from the prosciutto combined with a hint of sweetness and freshness from the tomatoes.
All that just the perfect fluffy dough 🙂 we truly enjoyed it. We also get to sampled some of the pizzas too, such as Tartufata (perfect for the truffle and mushroom lovers) and Ecco (roasted potatoes pizza with fior di latte, pancetta and garlic oil).
If we have to order it, we would go with Foccacia al Prosciutto, then Tartufata and Ecco 🙂
And finally their desserts! Was waiting till the end to try their classic Tiramisu, Panna Cotta, Affogato and their Nutella Pizza.
My personal favorite would be their tiramisu and the smooth panna cotta – I am just too biased with really good tiramisu with just right strength of coffee and chocolate that balanced the sweetness from the mascarpone. And the Nutella Pizza, there is really nothing can go wrong with Nutella, vanilla ice cream and good dough firewood pizza. Easily everyone’s favorites!
We really enjoyed our dining in Ecco and really recommend this place to all classic Italian pizza lovers.
We came home with a full tummy and smile on our faces. Can’t wait to try their pasta and the rest of their menu!
PS: We would like to thanks Ecco il Ristorante’s team and @juliimare for the invitation.
