$$$ Zia Rina’s Cucina, 857 High Street, Armadale



Elaine and I are both July babies so to celebrate our birthdays we decided we would try out a local restaurant we walked past a lot. Zia Rina’s Cucina looked like it would be a great birthday meal & treat we could share together.





As this was our birthday treat, we decided for one night only we would get to choose what we ate from the menu. The menu is changing daily so you are sure to be provided with the freshest in season produce.




Homemade seafood agnolotti with prawns & vongole

Elaine thought the flavour of the dish was fresh and delicious, you could definitely tell it hadn’t been sitting around, she felt that the pasta was a bit hard for her liking and she was expecting king prawns so was a bit disappointed with them for the price of the meal.

Cacciucco Alla Liuornese (Seafood Stew)

This dish is a great one for seafood lovers like myself, there was a great variety of fresh seafood and the bread was amazing char grilled and garlicy. Yum, definitely something I would go back for.

Dessert was a tough decision! This night there was three choices so we decided on the panna cotta and the berry tart.


Panna Cotta – Organic honey & rhubarb

The panna cotta was delicious! A great creamy texture and the honey flavour really shone through, Elaine loved the combination with the rhubarb, she thought it was the best panna cotta she had eaten, it was pretty close for me.

B         Yes                 9              Yes



Berry Tart

The berry tart didn’t shine like the panna cotta did, after that it was a bit of a let down, maybe if we just had it on its own it would have been different! It was fresh and the pasty was delicious, but it just couldn’t compete.

This was a great choice for a double birthday meal, the ambiance was nice, the service was top notch, the food was delicious and the whole night had a relaxing vibe.

We would definitely recommend going here for a special occasion or when you just felt like treating yourself to a nice evening!
