Campari House, Melbourne CBD by Bureaucrat

Hardware Lane is a bit of a gamble. There are some great places along Hardware Lane but then there are all the touristy trap-y places where touters try to lure you into parting your money for their over-priced, kinda-average quality food.  With no real place in mind for dinner, Ms G and I took a chance on Campari House.  I had some internal reservations about the place, as it looked kinda tourist trap-y.  Plus, I was more intrigued with the nearby Korean restaurant where diners mix up their food with their disposable gloved hands.

But my fears were dashed when the food came out.  The food was real good.  Ms G ordered a goats cheese ravioli dish ($25) which was served with brown butter sauce, sage and lots of toasted pine nuts.



Campari House, Hardware Lane, pizza
I ordered a gorgeous wood-fired pizza.  A crispy thin crust that was loaded with meatball, fresh basil, fior di latte and sweet roasted peppers ($22).  It was absolutely delish.

Verdict

We really liked it.

Overall

Pretty tasty food here.  Service is friendly and prompt.  The only thing that will make me think twice about going back is that it is a wee pricey.

If the food is good here, then you guys have to visit Harry's in Moonee Ponds as they have a mozzarella bar there and great pizza

The bar on the rooftop of Campari is fun in summer! Give that a go next time :)

Hi Sally, we don't head out to Moonee Ponds much so it's great for the tip regarding Harry's!

Hi Laura, lol we didn't even realise there was bar upstairs!

Campari House is on the Melbourne Monopoly board now so it would be worth mentioning that

I think it's Hardware Lane that I made it into Monopoly :)
