Cuisine: Italian

Much loved for its homely atmosphere and soulful Italian cooking, Puntino’s classic dining room now features an Italian-style winebar perfect for a pre-dinner tipple. A projector screening black-and-white Italian movies adds to the nostalgic air of this relaxed trattoria, where the wood-fired oven turns out fabulous pizza such as the Puntino with porcini, prosciutto and parmesan $22.50. Mains are scrawled on a daily-changing blackboard and range from roast rabbit through to pork, veal, goat and fish. Pork belly stuffed with herbs and served with capsicum jam $28.90 is a sure bet if it’s on. Chef Antonio Sabia handmakes his pasta and gnocchi, including strozza preti del sud with sautéed onion, pancetta, basil, Neapolitan sauce and ricotta $19.90. His star dessert is caramel pannacotta $12.90, a 100-year-old recipe that originates from Bologna.
