Restaurant of the Week: Cafe Eataliano, 55 Almada Street, Hamilton

Post Thumbnail

This week, we take a trip to Hamilton’s Cafe Eataliano.

Location

A wee bit out of the centre, yet perfectly accessible.

First impressions

What a lovely wee eaterie. We hadn’t booked, but arranging a table at short notice was no problem. The decor, from the cork on the walls to the Vespa hanging near the door, makes for a fun, welcoming vibe.

Service

Impeccable. The bubbly waiters and waitresses tended to our every whim, and even brought colouring sheets and crayons for the pint-sized diners in tow. Food arrived in good time and at no point did we feel rushed.

Menu

Extensive, sprawling over three pages. From starters and small dishes to traditional Italian mains, there’s something to suit all, with plenty of vegetarian options.

Taste

Fantastic. We opted for the lasagne al forno, cooked to perfection, and a pepperoni pizza. Cooked in a Morello Forni oven, it had the perfect thin crust and was nice and soft in the middle. The kids’ macaroni was lapped up pretty quickly too. And the portions were generous. Even the little ones had enough leftovers to take a doggy bag home.

Something special

If you have a sweet tooth, try the toffee fudge sundae. Every bite of the cream, ice cream, fudge and toffee combination is absolute heaven. We can also vouch for the chocolate fudge cake.

Price

The bill came in at just under £60 for two adults and two children, so pretty reasonable.

Ambience

The whole place is very warm and welcoming and the huge windows are perfect for watching the world go by.

Toilets

Clean and well-stocked.
