LIttle Italy - Blacktown

My friend is going to Canberra to work :(
However, she is coming back every weekend.
But even so - a farewell dinner was in order and it took place at Little Italy in Blacktown.

My friend who comes here a bit, always orders the SAME thing. I really ought to take it as a hint coz his dish was super super awesome looking. It was the Chicken Valdostana, a big chicken breast flamed in brandy and topped with cheese, ham, mushrooms and shallots ($19.90). It was also served with a chunk of broccoli and drenched with cream sauce. Mmm... he loved every bit of it and it looked super awesomeness!

Pollo Valdostana - $19.90

His girlfriend, who also orders the same thing every time ordered the Chicken Cara Maria. A chicken breast flamed in brandy with avocado, green peppercorns, bacon and prawns and again, drenched in cream sauce ($19.90). It likewise, looked super super awesome and she seemed to love it lots and lots and lots.

My Canberra going friend and I ordered the same thing - which came out looking very very different. We both ordered the Pollo pasta comprising of chicken pieces, baby spincah and mushrooms ($17.90). The difference is - I wanted cream sauce, she wanted tomato; I wanted fettuccine, she wanted penne. Hence, it seemed like two different pastas altogether. The similarities were there, however - both on the bland side (lacking salt salt salt!!!), needed more parmesan, and came in a huge huge huge huge serving that we both struggled and failed to finish.

In all, it seemed like a great Italian restaurant which served big portions of food at reasonable prices. Service was friendly and ambiance exudes family restaurant feel. Not bad at all.

Those are big meals indeed! Blacktown is a fair way out for me though.

Yeh - the servings were HUGE for the price but it is a bit out of the way for anyone who doesn't live out west :P

Ohh, the first dish looks good. Agree about the massive servings though.
