Originally started as a meeting place in New Farm for post war migrants from Italy, Casa Italia club/restaurant still provides that service as well as being a lively no frills place to enjoy cheap Italian eats and drinks.
The dining room is a large cavernous tiled grotto with Italian maps and movie posters adorning the walls and a ceiling featuring a mirror ball.
Food-wise, the basic pasta and pizza menu items are under $20 and come in copious portions. (Ex-Sydney dwellers who recall the East Sydney cheap eats institution No Name’s will find much in common here).
This is a fantastic place for a cheap night out for large groups and families with the bonus of a courtyard outside for children to play, swift service, room to move between the tables and a pool table and a table soccer game for afters.
