Restaurant Review: Scusami

Location: Southgate Shopping Complex, Mid Level /Southgate Avenue, Southbank
Phone: (03) 9699 4111
Cuisine: Italian

Bread to start

Seared calamari, herb marinated, white anchovy warm panzella salad
The calamari was perfectly cooked. The salad was quite good. Simple and well seasoned.
 Beef carpaccio, served raw, truffled duck egg, wild mushrooms and herbs infused olive oil
This was a delicious dish. Each mouthful was delectable. There was a great balance of flavours.
 Pan roasted Tasmanian Salmon, with rocket and salsa verde dressing
Very plain. The Salmon was cooked well.
 Orrechiette pasta served with Smoked pancetta tomato and peas
The pasta was cooked al dente. The sauce lacked depth as the dominant tomato base over-powered the entire dish.
Red wine braised chicken with olives and roasted potato
The chicken was overdone and was disappointingly dry. As such, the lack of sauce on the plate made this one of the least enjoyable courses of the night.

House churned gelato

Overall Impression: 6/10
Very pleasant and waitstaff that provided efficient levels of service. The food was well presented and all things considered, was a positive dining experience.
