Wickham – Italy’s Pantry

This combination of casual eatery and retail store has quickly gathered a following in inner-city Newcastle. Head to the wide open, brand new space for authentic Italian food done well. Find fresh, house made pasta and sauces, arancini, or pantry staples for dinner at home or let the team at Italy’s Pantry do the magic for you. The menu features superbly crunchy arancini, meatballs in a Napoletana sauce or garlic prawns for starters. Pasta dishes include lasagna bolognese, fusilli with slow cooked pork shoulder and beef brisket in tomato sauce and red wine or divine casarecce boscaiola. Pizzas are cooked to perfection in the woodfired oven.

Make sure to leave room for dessert classics like tiramisu or panna cotta. Or grab a scoop of creamy goodness from the Popolo Gelateria cart as you head out the door.

Wednesday to Saturday, 11.30am – 2pm, dinner from 5 – 8.30pm (Wednesday and Thursday) or 9pm (Friday and Saturday).
