Because Bicicletta is the restaurant for the Peppers Gallery Hotel in Acton it is very helpfully open for three meals a day, seven days a week.
It has a good Italian menu and a specials board… (the salmon fillet and the marinated sirloin both looked excellent!).
For a group of five or six good choices are……
Pan di pizza Rosemary & extra virgin olive oil or garlic & chilli $13
Tortellini di yucca – Homemade tortellini stuffed with roasted pumpkin in a creamy gorgonzola sauce finished with toasted pine nuts & parmesan scales $26….
….but it may have been better to order the very good Fusilli alla bolognese – Traditional pasta with Nonna’s 3 meat bolognaise sauce $23
Pappardelle al rage d’agnello – House made pasta with braised lamb in balsamic, thyme & grated pecorino cheese $27 (delicious)
INSALATE + CONTORNI
Arugula e parmigiana – Baby rocket leaves, corella pears, beetroot chips, shaved parmesan in a mustard & balsamic dressing – $16…..
Insalata al salmone – Smoked king salmon with crispy mesclun, potato rosti, Spanish onion, cherry tomato in a seeded mustard dressing $18….
Campanula – Buffalo mozzarella, Italian pork sausage, potato, wild mushrooms & basil $24
There’s pleasant seating both inside and out as well as a very cozy and stylish bar area.
There’s not a BYO wine option but wine by the glass is around. $8.50 and you can order a bottle for around $38.
There’s a regular 10% service charge added to the bill.
Open public holidays there is also a 10% surcharge.
