Dinner at Beppi’s

When Tom & Bette visited Sydney their favorite dinner was at an Italian joint, Beppi’s, which has been a Sydney Institution since 1956. For Christmas they treated us to dinner at Beppi’s and luckily the restaurant was just re-opening from their holiday break as we arrived in the city.

They sat us in the wine cellar, and kicked things off with some bruschetta and a Barbera:

Then we shared a couple appetizers:  Fiori di Zucchine Ripieni con Ricotta e Funghi Porcini – Home grown Zucchini flowers with a ricotta, basil and Porcini Mushroom filling and Ravioli di Zucca – Ravioli filled with roasted pumpkin & amaretti served with burnt butter & parmesan:

The squash blossoms were nice and piping hot.  The ravioli pasta was perfectly made but the filling needed a little kick.

For mains, BK got the Filetto di Vitello alla griglia con Burro Tartufato e Funghi Porcini  – Veal fillet grilled and served with truffled butter, porcini mushrooms and potatoes roasted in duck fat:
