My Sydney Feast ~> Lanzafàme Trattoria

John Lanzafame, Chef and owner of Lanzafàme Trattoria is a passionate chef specializing in food he grew up with, honest and traditional Italian cuisine. Ex-Executive chef of Peter Evans of Hugo’s, he does amazingly good pizzas with many awards, one of them being the world pizza champion in New York in 2005.

Lanzafàme Trattoria is small and cozy restaurant located in the quiet suburbs of Woolloomooloo on Crown street. I arrived here for lunch with high expectations knowing John’s reputation as a brilliant and amazing chef.

The lunch menu of $15 for entrees, pasta and pizzas is definitely worth a visit, with not only a few choices available but a wide one to pick from (delicious ones as well) it does make you think twice before ordering.
