On a breezy spring evening, Zen and I strolled along King Street Wharf seeking a warm dinner to satisfy our grumbling stomachs. Casa Di Nico looked so warm inside, and the idea of hearty pasta and seafood locked in our choice.

Casa Di Nico - bruschetta

For entree, we shared the bruschetta… roma tomatoes, basil and red onion on ciabatta bread… this was really fresh… and the olive oil which was drizzled all over left me wanting more.

Casa Di Nico - seafood risotto

Typically, Zen ordered the seafood risotto which featured a combination of scampi, mussels, prawns, vongole and calamari… the risotto was flavoured with a kick of saffron and a splash of white wine.

Casa Di Nico - lobster linguine

I ordered the day’s special which was lobster linguini with asparagus, baby spinach, roast capiscum and saffron. The linguini was heavenly fresh, and had a great chewy texture. The sauce was rich and creamy and every bite of the lobster was so indulging.

Casa Di Nico - chocolate and pistachio creme brulee

The night ended perfectly with a gorgeous chocolate and pistachio creme brulee. This was served with a crispy twirl of praline tuille. The brulee was so smooth and exotic… i loved the inclusion of pistachios… mmm…

Casa Di Nico - inside

Casa Di Nico seats a massive 200 indoors, and 100 outdoors. The interior is reminiscent of its strong Italian flavours.
