Jason M. with the following entry:
While it is hard to pick a favourite (I love everything Italian) my favourite Italian dish is a Margherita pizza. I love a good one made with fresh tomato, oregano and lashings of ﬁor di latte. One which lets the ingredients speak for itself.
It's gotta be gnocchi with a ragu of some kind. Soft fluffy pillows of potato coated in a rich tomato sauce and tender meat which just melts in your mouth. These are the sorts of meals hearty beautiful Italian meals that create memories.Clay U. with the following entry:
My favourite italian dish is the humble pannacotta. As simple as this dish is in terms of ingredients, it is amazing how difficult it is to master. When you find a place that nails it, it is a sight to behold. I love when they have the texture and the balance of sweetness just right. Bellissimo!
… Congratulations, the winners will be contacted via email. Competition Now Closed.

The brainchild of Luis Pampliega and Tamara Volkoff, owners of the much-loved Southgate Italian eatery Tutto Bene ARTUSI is a welcome addition to Southgate's dining precinct.
Our afternoon commenced with unctuous pieces of slow cooked ox tongue accompanied by perfectly oozy quail egg, fresh salsa verde and lemon EVOO. a The centrepiece ox tongue possessed a beautiful depth of flavour, with the acidity in the salsa verde helping to alleviate the richness of the decadent tongue.
