In Greek Ambrosia is the food or drink of the Greek gods. It just so happens that we have our very own Italian restaurant, by the name of Ambrosia, where one can eat and drink excellent quality food fit for a God!!
I took my 4 year old daughter for lunch the other day and we had a great lunch. She wanted pizza and pasta so I ordered a kids meal of pepperoni pizza and I ordered penne carbonnara with prawns preceded by the best calamari I have had. Why was it the best? Simple-the calamari rings were thin, lightly battered and fried so they were crispy on the outside and soft-not rubbery inside, resting on a bed of leaves and mayo. My daughter loved them also!!
The pizza was excellent and the pasta was creamy, meaty and good portion size. We both had our fair share, yet my daughter still found room for ice cream!! To wash it all down we had chilled water and I finished off with a cappuccino. All for under £25- great price for what we had!!
The decor was very authentic Italian and I believe will be getting a facelift. The staff were absolutely wonderful and my daughter had them well entertained!! We were very fortunate to have the proprietor, Michael, joining us for a bite and yarn. He was telling us about his first restaurant Solo and new venture Il Gusto (Lisburn Road opening September end) with utmost passion. I know Solo and now Ambrosia and I’m sure Il Gusto will also be a roaring success. Thanx to Michael and the girls for making our lunch very memorable and enjoyable.
