La Citta

12 Degraves Street,
Vic 3000
We visited La Citta on a busy Saturday evening and ate at a table for 12. There were a few tables out on Degraves street but we were inside. There is a bar along the back with plenty of bottles of wine behind and boards on the wall listing cocktails and the menu.

The menu included a range of tapas/entree dishes, pasta dishes and some mains, most of the group went with pasta dishes.

The entree sized serve of the homemade potato and carrot gnocchi with rosemary and lamb ragu was pretty decently sized, the main merely featured more gnocchi. The gnocchi was apparently a little on the underdone side and the dish a little bland.

Apologies for the poor snap of the squid ink pappardelle with king prawns and cherry tomato, perhaps I didn't have the patience to avoid the blur! The dish was great with five or six decent sized prawns, which had been shelled, but left with their heads and tails on. The wide black strips of pasta were topped with a few halved cherry tomatoes and hid a few of the fantastic crustacean. 

The meal came in around $50 a head including one or two drinks each. The service was pretty efficient given it was busy and we were a big group. I'd go back but wasn't blown away by the experience.
