Falling in love with Sydney when visiting from Europe in 2000, Piero relocated to the ‘promised city’ in 2010 and has been blogging with us since Urban Usher began! In this edition of Meet the Locals, we catch up with Piero and talk pizza, pasta and sharks! I love Sydney because… It combines natural beauty and beach life with city and urban living
I blog a lot about Italian restaurants because… It is yummy! Having left Italy in 1999 I still feel like I am back home every time I bite into a proper pizza or delicious home made pasta – Sydney does Italian food very well!
Things I miss about Italy are… A shark-free sea and reasonably priced stunning Italian wine! Oh, and mamma, of course !
Top tips for getting your Italian fix in Sydney… For great pizza go to Lucios (review coming soon!) or Pizza Mario. Low key Italian fare can be found at the Reggio Lounge – great pasta dishes! For a more high end meal experience go to A Tavola or Popolo. And don’t forget to pop into Quattro Passi for a pre-dinner drink or Messina for a gelato on the way home!by
