Pizzazz at Il Nido, Balgownie NSW

Il Nido Trattoria Pizzeria on Urbanspoon

The Il Nido Restaurant in Balgownie NSW opens only on evenings from Tuesdays to Sundays.
The patriarch of the family run place maintains a rather friendly atmosphere with his wife Diane and son Adrian. It is popular with local family groups.
On a recent week night, a group of us had a variety of thin crust pizzas to accompany the pan fried king fish, seafood penne and Hunter Valley wine. Above, generous servings of prosciutto on a well done and freshly made crust.

Above, the garlic bread as starters and below, potato and chorizo as toppings. Chorizos come with a hint of a spicy bite, and although I prefer the fresh versions, on pizzas, the fermented, cured or smoked types are often better.

Nothing like a bit of feta cheese to liven up a well dressed Italian inspired salad serve.
