Belle: With daylight savings coming to an end, those long summer nights are now a distant memory. We visited Vesta Italian a couple of weeks ago and the warm evening night was perfect for the alfresco dining at Darling Quarter. We were hosted by the welcoming manager Kaz and really enjoyed the night. So much so that we stayed till closing.

We started off with Antipasto for two/four ($26/$49). Serving two or four, a large platter of classic delicious antipasto selections include marinated olives, marinated vegetables, salami, and cheese served with grissini and bread.

The second entree was the Seared Scallops with cauliflower puree and lemon crumble ($16) which was perfectly cooked.

Pork belly pizza, diced pork belly, mozzarella, potato and apple sauce ($23) was an interesting combination of salty pork belly combined with the sweet apple sauce.

Gnocchi al ragu di agnello, gnocchi with our slow cooked lamb shoulder ragu, peas, and shaved age parmesan ($23). This was a rich and hearty dish that would be perfect for the upcoming colder months.

Mixed mushroom risotto with truffle pecorino ($19) was my favourite dish of the night. It was well seasoned and the added truffle pecorino was the cherry on top.

The best part of the night was having desserts to finish off the night. Home made daily panna cotta ($12) was a pot of goodness. The panna cotta was smooth and creamy and not overly sweet.

Home made cannoli, Ricotta and chocolate chip ($6). The citrus infused ricotta was a welcoming change. I am not usually a fan of chocolate chips in ice creams because they are usually too frozen and not melt in your mouth ready. But because the ricotta is served at a warmer temperature, I enjoyed the small bites of chocolate flakes.

Affogato, a shot of espresso with 2 scoops of ice cream and a shot of Frangelico ($14). The perfect blend to finish off the night.
