Due Amici, Bundall, Gold Coast

Due Amici – Two Friends; in fact they’re the husband and wife team Geremia and Simon Lando. After moving to Australia from Italy seven years ago, the Landos first opened their restaurant in Mermaid Beach, moving it to Sorrento in June 2014.

Good food takes time, especially in the preparation, but you can always improve your Italian by reading the paper as you wait, and the restaurant is BYO for a $2.50 charge per person. With pop opera on the airwaves and Geremia’s sunny smile, it would be easy to make this little place a weekly stop (or more)!

If I had a list of ‘must try’ dishes on the Gold Coast, one of them would be Filled gnocchi with porcini sauce from Due Amici.

For me, it was love at first bite, the small cloud-like pillows of gnocchi hiding a line of porcini inside, smothered in a rich porcini cream sauce. They may not be the prettiest gnocchi in town, but believe me – they’re addictive! The taste is intense, the texture soft and velvety, the quality completely unexpected.
