Cappuccinos to Cocktails

Where do you go for stunning contemporary Italian food? Leichhardt? Haberfield? What about the heart of the city?

Because that’s where you’ll find Hinchcliff House, four floors full of the finest Italian food, you just choose the style and speed you want to eat.

Outside on the ground level is Bar Mammoni, a grab it and go take on the Italian cornerstore. There are incredible pastries and pizzette – mini personal pizzas with topping like whipped nduja and goats curd, turmeric cauliflower and spiced lamb meatballs. Or sit down on the terrace with a Mammoni sharing plate – preserved vegetables, paper thin prosciutto and arancini balls.

Inside on the ground floor is Grana, the engine room of Hinchcliff House. This is where the flour for the bread and pasta is ground, the pasta is made by hand and a selection of huge share plates for the restaurant are concocted.

For pasta-lovers, the spaghetti chittara with nduja and octopus is a stand out, as is the smoked eggplant and ricotta ravioli. Share the grilled prawns and piadina bread, and then devour a main course or tow – John Dory with fingerlime sauce or the slow cooked lamb with salsa verde and spiced yoghurt.

And we haven’t even mentioned the seafood-focused formal restaurant Lana upstairs and the sultry bar Appolonia in the basement. From breakfast to after dinner cocktails, you can have it all at Hinchcliff House.
