Finding a hidden gem is always exciting.
That’s exactly what we felt when we found an enticing hidden gem in the Hills District of Sydney.
Quietly nestled among the quiet surrounding neighbourhood in Glenhaven, this restaurant overlooks a laid-back and beautiful bushland setting.
Despite looking just like an ordinary house from the outside, inside you’ll find an elegant and stylish restaurant that is ready to cater for all your personal or business events.
Having been in the business for about 18 months, this family owned and operated restaurant opens from Wednesday to Sunday.
So, welcome to Entrata.
Just like us, you’ll experience traditional Italian dining that brings the roots of old Italy with a modern influence.
We started our journey with strong and aromatic coffee from Vittoria.
The indoor seating is very stylish and sophisticated with a charming homey ambiance.
But we opted for the outdoor seating on this particular visit. The weather was perfect!
The lush green surroundings take you back to nature, and nothing beats the combination of a gorgeous day and live music from two talented musicians.
While sipping on our coffee we totally enjoyed the scenic view and the soft breeze from the afternoon wind.
Our first dish was the Herb Crusted Rack of Lamb with roasted vegetables and red wine reduction.
Delightfully plated, this impressive dish really made us go “Wow!” when it arrived on our table.
The herbs and lamb are match made in heaven. The lamb is succulent, the vegetables are tender and the red wine reduction is just perfect. What a wonderful harmony of flavours!
Next is the Charcoal Grilled 400gr Premium Australian Rib Eye steak on the bone.
The steak is thick, juicy and cooked to perfection.
Served with roasted vegetables, infused green peppercorn & e.v.o.o, I personally love the fact that they keep the bone in. It really enhances the wonderful flavour of the beef. You’ll soon be a rib eye fanatic with this hearty dish!
Last, but definitely not least is the mouth-watering Crumbed Pork Cutlet with mash potato, salad and lemon cream sauce.
It’s absolutely delicious. The crumb give the cutlet a great crunch and I love how moist the cutlet is on the inside. Having it with the creamy mash potato gives a nice different texture to the dish whilst the salad adds extra freshness.
Served with the lemon cream sauce that is spot on, it’s love at first bite and is easily becoming our family’s favourite dish.
Overall, our visit was excellent, from the food to the atmosphere to the impeccable service.
Highly recommend this restaurant/bar for any occasion. Entrata is definitely worth paying a visit. Trust me, you will not regret it!
