San Giusto Italian Deli + Cafe, South Melbourne
Anthony and I hopped along to the Spotlight Centre to check out the latest addition to its revamped food court, a modern, funky Italian joint called San Giusto. It replaced a former healthy eating/ salad place that naturally had zero interest of Sam. The heady aromas and enticing visuals were excellent signs this venture would be more appeasing.
I, already haven been through one lunch, went for a sensible smallish option in the panino with pancetta, fried egg and asiago cheese. It came freshly warmed and toasted from the spinny machine and was a moreish blend with the cheese perfectly smooth and even the egg having a delightfully crisp edge. Could have had a tinge more meat but was an all around good bite and good start for these guys.
As well as the cafe items San Giusto does the staples of pasta and pizza and these also looked fantastic indeed. I would have been keen to get if I didn’t already expend all my afternoon calorie intake. My counterpart did go with the classic Margherita slice and kept his feedback to a minimum but was in agreement with the score. A great addition to the food court here and helping up the ante too.
