Olivigna, Warrandyte 3134

Located not so far away from civilisation lies Olivigna - An Italian paradise as far away from Italy as you can get. Limoncello made onsite, tastings available and a terrace view to die for, it will take a miracle for you not to fall in love with this hidden gem!

I can not tell you how beautiful this restaurant/winery is. We chose not to book as the website says there is an outdoor terrace that is available on a first served basis. DO THIS! The outdoor terrace is second to none and overlooks the beautiful country views unobstructed.

With the outdoor terrace comes a limited menu that you are able to order from at the bar. With pizzas and snacks galore you really aren't missing out on much. We had the pleasure of trying the Salumi pizza and Antipasto platter which were AMAZING. The pizza is seriously one of the best I've had with the meatiness of the salami and the richness of the sauce executed to perfection so I wasn't bothered by its simplicity at all. The antipasto platter had a good variety of different foods on the plate though I do feel like it could've done with a cheese element as most of the elements were meaty, fresh or sour...a creaminess element would've elevated it.

On a side note - Try the Olivigna cocktail is a must try with an overwhelming fruitiness and the chance to try the onsite Limoncello - Perfect for Summer!

Whether you are looking to romance your partner over a lunch/dinner or looking for a place to get the family together - this is the perfect place. Next door to home and not that far out but transports you to the middle of Italy...what more do you want! The perfect way to experience Italy without the price tag :)
