Corvida, Swinger Hill- Lunch Special (Tues to Sat)

Standard

Corvina at the Swinger Hill shops in Mawson, Canberra has been open since June 2014, in the site previously occupied by the popular Italian Santa Lucia Restaurant.

It continues the style of Santa Lucia and like it’s predecessor it offers a great value lunch special, Tuesday to Saturday.

A short drive from Woden, it’s a good weekday lunch choice, but also makes a good Saturday option.

The $13.90 lunch special includes wine or softdrink, Italian bread and a choice of two delicious salads (the mushroom salad is excellent and the chicken salad is very good), a selection of pastas (the pesto fettucine is good), two risottos (chicken is better than the vegetarian), soup and pizza.

If dining as a group, it’s a great idea to order a selection of dishes and share a variety of flavours and textures.

The chardonnay is very good and a generous serve and the bread is also very good.

Service is friendly and attentive. Decor is pleasant. There is indoor and outdoor seating. BYO is $6.50 per bottle for extra wine.

The Corvina lunch special is a worthy challenger to Woden Belluci’s similar $20 lunch special. Corvina certainly wins on value. But Belluci’s dishes are probably the winners for taste and visual appeal.
