Tucked away in Lavington mall, Hidden Gem is an intimate, warm and welcoming Italian restaurant that serves some of the city’s best pizza and pasta. The two-floor space is decorated with plants, flowers and wall murals that will take you to the streets of Italy the moment you step through the doors.
Hidden Gem is an effortlessly cool restaurant and feels as if dining inside a family home, with cosy decor and traditional Italian dishes. In the evenings, sitting upstairs at their expansive deck with warm lighting feels like being on a holiday somewhere as you enjoy their extensive Australian wine selection or some fine cocktails.
We’re here for the pizza. It’s very good; thin blistered crust topped with quality ham, cheese, olives and other ingredients.
Their kitchen also does a very good job with their grills, serving silky fresh plates of pure comfort food.
Along with the incredible food, you will find an amazing wine collection which they have both by the glass and bottle. From Western Australia, Mad Fish, Celestial bay and Vina Pomal from Spain, amongst many others.
When you do go there, sample their cocktail menu too,la dolce vita goes down real easy.
