  • positive review  Despite the decidedly surfie name, The Surfers Mistress is an Italian Trattoria. Choices of indoor or outdoor dining, we dined outdoors as the sun was sinking, and a balmy evening coming on, the garden feeling very Italian with herbs planted in boxes mounted on the fence, olive and lemon trees surrounding the sunumbrellas and outside tables and chairs. Menu is simple and tasty, nice range of lunch or small platters and salads, an antipasto for two, pizzas, pastas, steak and some gorgeously intense desserts. We had Salsiccia pizza, a lusciously cheesy pizza with Italian sausage and fennel and a hint of chili, on a thin base, Ragu' alla Bolognese made the way they make it in Bologna with egg pasta, beef and sausage and not a tomato in sight, and Italian sausage with maccheroni, also a lush feast with tastes taking you to the Italian countryside. Following with the dessert menu, we had the dessert of the day - a meringue and pastry dish with strawberry coulis, the panna cotta served with blueberries, honey and crumbs, vanilla bean gelato and affogato, vanilla bean gelato served with a hot shot of espresso to pour over. The desserts were tasty dishes with intense flavour and sweetness sized to perfection so you're not left reeling after a sugar overload. Loved the experience, friendly welcome from the proprietors and waiting staff, and unhesitatingly recommend!
