Caffettino - Fitzroy

43 Gertrude Street
VIC 3065

Rather than wandering into the city for lunch with Brendan we headed for the quieter streets of Fitzroy, Gertrude street and Caffettino in particular.

The tables outside were all taken when we arrived, but we managed to find a spot inside, where the walls were decorated with Italian style food related photos.

The menu was on boards behind the counter and is also hiding on their on their website and covers sandwiches, soups various pasta options and more, all apparently home made.

The penne with pesto and sundried tomato topped with shaved parmesan was rich and tasty and delivered what was expected.

I decided on the the lentil soup, which arrived looking like a vegetable soup, but on further inspection was packed with small brown lentils. The bowl was a good size and the soup was hearty and tasty, it came with some good bread.

The meals were good value, only $8 for the soup! The staff were friendly, if maybe a little disorganised. It certainly isn't a bad option if you need to grab lunch while in the area, the coffees looked good too.
