Another day, another find. Located and hidden amongst a semi-industrial area in Wetherill Park (Sydney south west) is Grano – a rustic Italian Restaurant specializing in fresh wood fired pizza and pastas, but also have on offer antipasti, salads, sandwiches and dessert.
Ciao! Buongiorno! Buona sera! Yes, I am in Italy (not right now though, I wish!) I was luckily enough to visit a handful of Italian cities including Rome, Florence, Venice & Pisa. The country is as beautiful and incredible as everyone says and it amazed me in every single way possible.
Criniti’s sure has revamped itself from the first time I ever went, well over 6 years ago. It was a place the boy and I would go regularly on dates, and the place to have birthday lunches/dinners with friends. I honestly can’t remember where we got the money to eat as we were high school students then but clearly my love for food started many, many years ago. Along with the physical renovations of the restaurant itself, the menu has changed with it. It has become more authentic over the years, and even adopting the proper Italian language for the different categories.
It’s always a joy to discover new restaurants close to home. Sometimes, a trek to the city for a feed seems absurd, considering I would spend more time in the car traveling to and from than having my bum on a chair at a restaurant. It’s definitely one of the down sides to living so far away from the CBD, but then again, I wouldn’t get the opportunity to explore what is outside of the city.
