Criniti’s is a vibrant chain of restaurants with a Melbourne outpost in Carlton. High energy dining in a unique space, Criniti’s has a cosmopolitan glow about it with a downtown design.
The kitchen serves delicious Italian cuisine which centres on providing patrons with the most amazing array of choices so there is something for everyone.
Quite simply, the Corleone pizza was sensational. Sat atop a thin layer of tomato sugo were generous dollops of delicious buffalo mozzarella, wonderfully sweet cherry tomatoes lashings of , shaved parmigiano and a sprinkling of basil and olives. These ingredients did justice to the fantastic pizza base which was light and flavoursome.
Lamb spiedino chargrilled skewers
The skewers are also highly recommended. Each morsel of the Lamb spiedino chargrilled skewers was sufficiently seasoned and had benefited from a delectable outer charring courtesy of spending the perfect time on the grill. We loved the lemon jus marinade which added a lovely acidity to the dish.
Nutella bomboloni smoothie
Our evening concluded on a decadently sweet end with Criniti’s moreish nutella smoothie which is topped with a nutella-filled donut ball. YUM.
Criniti’s serves cooking that is fun and innovative while retaining traditional flavours, blending contemporary Italian style with classic Italian influence.
