Trattoria Italian Kitchen: Piccata, Pizza and Lamb
Since Trattoria Italian Kitchen opened up on the corner of Kingsway and Willingdon two years ago, we’ve surprisingly only visited on a few occasions. I’m not really sure why that is because the food has always been fairly good.
Their menu isn’t overly extensive… but if you like pastas and pizza, you’ll probably find something that tickles your fancy.
On this visit, I tried the Piccata ($19.95) sautéed in white wine, lemon, capers, and butter. The saltiness of the capers highlights the sauce and pairs nicely with the thinly sliced veal.
Trattoria has a large pizza oven in the middle of their bar area so you can be sure that their pizzas come out freshly baked. The Hawaiian ($15.95) is topped with pancetta, roasted pineapple, peppers, and chilies.
The thin crust of the pizza is crispy and light and the size of the pizza is big enough to share. If you’re looking for an interesting brunch option, try their Breakfast Pizza.
Now, if pizza or lamb isn’t your thing, you could always try their Lamb Shank ($23.95) served with bianco risotto, goat cheese, roasted veggies, and rosemary jus.
The fork-tender lamb is a generous portion size and served over the creamy and cheesy risotto while the roasted veggies gives a nice contrasting crunch for textural contrast.
