With two Ducati’s hoisted from the ceiling, a Ferrari 499 Engine positioned in the private dining room and a Rolls Royce Phantom parked out front the latest venture for Criniti’s Southern Italian Cusine is one very big shake up for the usually conservative Woolloomoloo wharf.
Criniti’s has a well-established reputation for great Italian food, from homemade pasta, wood-fired pizzas, steaks, seafood, amazing desserts and now including sushi, Criniti’s has got all areas covered.
When I received the invite to the launch I knew I was in for a treat. The invite was complete with all the ingredients to make pasta including tomato sauce made by Criniti’s chefs, a Criniti’s knife, pasta imported from Italy and a pasta recipe on the back of the invitation, all in a Criniti’s bag.
The red carpet was hosted by news.com.au editor-in-chief Melissa Hoyer and with the beats of DJ Lady Tre booming into the night with all of the Sydney Glitterati spilling out onto the wharf, Criniti’s is going to be the hot spot for summer.
Guests sipped at Veuve Clicquot, Menabrea Birra and Absolut and Belvedere Vodka Cocktails, whilst being entertained by the mixologists chipping away at ice sculptures. Popular canapés were the Salmon aburi Nigiri, Lamb cutlet alla Milanese and the Tiramisu shooters. YUM!
The Woolloomooloo restaurant is the fourth Criniti’s in Sydney, adding to eateries at Castle Hill, Parramatta and Darling Harbour. A fifth restaurant is currently under construction and will open in Manly early 2013.
Welcome to the Wharf, Criniti’s.
