It's been a long, long time since we've been to Papa Gino's. It was way back then during our Melbourne uni years when we still lived in Carlton. Even then, we had never been regulars, so I couldn't remember much about the food, only that it had been decent the last time we went.
Papa Gino's was packed with people at lunchtime as it always was. MerlinFan and I got a table for two outside, under the blasting heaters, on a table that rocked away like a rocking horse. @_@
We both had refreshing Lemon Lime & Bitters.
|Lemon Lime & Bitters $3.50 each|
MerlinFan and I decided to share a pizza and a pasta. The pizza choices are pretty standard Australian-Italian, no fancy schmancy gourmet pizzas. We chose the Aussie Pizza. Man, I don't think I had one of those in years.
|Aussie Pizza (small) $11|
On the bright side, the pasta fared better.
|Cheese ravioli (entree) $12.90|
Quick service, reasonable prices, not bad for a casual eat and a quick bite.
