Casa di Nico – Sydney

I should have known that an impressive run of good meals in Sydney would come to an end. On the Saturday night after stopping by a UFC Fight Club party at Oscars across the walk way at Darling Harbour, GG and I wandered all the way along the boardwalk, up past the aquarium to see what was hiding up that end. Some places were so full and others appeared to be just opening and were nearly empty. I was pretty hungry by this stage so we saw what looked like a nice Italian place and jumped in the queue out the front. The place was called Casa di Nico.

First problem, there seemed to be one girl seating people in this giant place, which was taking forever, while the line out the front grew and the sun was belting down. So this didn’t really impress me too much.We sat down though and I was probably slightly surprised at the price of their food, but reminded myself I was in tourist central so just dealt with it. We decided just to have mains and GG chose the salmon and I went for a pizza – Nico’s delight, Double Smoked Ham, Caramelised Pineapple, Roma Tomatoes, Mozzarella and Parsley ($26.50)

GG seemed happy enough with his salmon, came served with a large side salad which was nice. But my pizza – sooooo disappointing! It was like they had my pizza ready and left it sitting and sweating on its pizza tray while they finished making GG’s dinner so that when I started eating it the crust was uninspiringly soggy. A total turnoff. I also thought there was an excess of cheese for such a sparse amount of other toppings. For $26.50 I’d hoped for one of the best pizzas I’d ever had however I was left so wanting. Now perhaps I could make my peace with this, as I could with the closeness of the tables to each other however when we got up to pay with cash and the manager dismissingly threw our change back at us that was the last straw! Totally useless establishment left feeling more than a little miffed and knew there was no way I would be heading back any time soon! There are so many nice places to eat in Sydney, definitely avoid this one!
