I’m so behind with all of this blogging business. I’ve been tied down with the last weeks of uni (will definately be deferring next semester), and the biggest news is… well, I’ve resigned.
Moving on, here is another lunch time adventure brought to you by the Eyeblaster girls…

Cellini’s Bar and Restaurant offers cafe style food inside the glorious (and historic) QVB. We ordered the fettucine carbonara and a roast capsicum and zucchini melt to share…
The fettucine carbonara was the perfect serving size for one. The pasta was al dente, and was intertwined with a sublime creamy pesto sauce.

On the other hand, the melt was rather deceiving… I had expected something more hearty. Perhaps with the unnamed riches of pesto or roast eggplant. Instead, pickled vegetables and cheese lay ontop of some crusty turkish bread… Ah, the dissatisfaction…

Cellini’s cafe-style menu shows influences which stretches from Italy to Asia. The service was wonderful, and the food was fairly priced and was prepared quite promptly… overall, a wonderful escape…
