Best Gnocchi in Canberra?

By ace2279 - 5 June 2011 25

I’m searching for the best gnocchi in Canberra and would love to know where it might be.

I’m tired of having sub par gnocchi that’s either rock hard in the centre or sticks to your mouth like warm playdough.

We had some excellent gnocchi from Bellucis in Phillip, is there anywhere else we should try? Of course value for money is a must and a takeaway option would be an added bonus.

What’s Your opinion?

Just spat water out of my mouth on seeing Babars in a ‘best of something’ in Canberra thread

Another vote for Delissio, Curtin (except that you have to go more than once, because it is a bit “heavy” to have their mains gnocchi and then their must-try dessert gnocchi).

La Dolce Vita in Kingston does a delicious, hefty serving of gnocci.

I had no problems with Bella Vista gnocchi either — but couldn’t quite eat it all. They’ll do it take away if you ask them nicely.

And I have been meaning to try my hand at this for many successive weekends, but it’s still on the to-do list: http://www.citrusandcandy.com/2009/05/daring-cooks-challenge-lime-and-black.html

The lemon ricotta gnocchi at Ellacure has a very nice texture… like little pillows of air

Bella Vista, down by the lake in Belconnen, has been fantastic every time I’ve been there.

my place, however, we have gone off the potato gnocchi (way too stodgy), but a big fan of ricotta gnocchi, much lighter, easier to make

tossolini’s in civic has a good gnocchi gorgonzola. as for outstanding, i dream of coming across a fabulous panfried gnocchi in canberra. alas none yet…

Jebus, there must be a dearth of options if La Porchetta and the Civic Babar are getting recommendations.

Or is it just something that’s too difficult for even the most culinarily challenged to stuff up?

Learn to make it yourself (it is quite easy) and you’ll never eat gnocchi out again. It’s also worth finding out whether it’s made on the premises or is frozen? Some places (such as The Fat Goanna) make meals from scratch.

+1 for the gnocchi with veal raghu at Italian and Sons – very nice.

The pumpkin gnocchi at Babar’s in civic is excellent.

Delissioso, Curtin.

I had a great gnocchi at Italian and Sons in Braddon, served with a simple veal ragu. Seldom do restaurants cook it properly (let alone make their own). I wouldn’t bother with takeaway gnocchi as it’d probably be pretty stodgy by the time you got home. Try making it yourself- it’s easy and fun!

I am quite partial to the Gnocchi at La Porchetta in Tuggeranong… especially in the form of Pollo e Funghi… not sure if they do takeaway, but if anyone does – they will…
