The Ivy Review
This excellent Italian-inspired restaurant sits on a prominent corner in Olinda Village, with a comfortable light-filled interior and a pleasant open-air terrace. Wood-fired pizzas are a highlight here, including such flavorsome examples as the Salsiccia (A$22.50), laden with Italian pork and fennel sausage. The stars of the dinnner service are the wood-fired terra-cotta pots containing various slow-cooked dishes such as slow-roasted garlic and rosemary lamb on Italian beans with goat's cheese, lemon-scented olive oil, and pesto ($35). If you have room for dessert after that (which is doubtful), try the Dolci pizza topped with white chocolate raspberries, milk chocolate, and vanilla bean ice cream (A$15).
