A dire basta at La Svolta

Eat all the Italian food. Literally.

How often do you get the chance to eat as much as you like until you have to physically ask for the food to stop? How often is stuffing your face with an unlimited amount of food for a fixed price socially acceptable? Not often enough, we say, which is why we're pretty happy that we've found a place that makes all-you-can-eat a very suitable Sunday night dinner.

Every Sunday night at La Svolta Prahran the normal menu is replaced by a stop sign. The laminated red sign — printed with the words 'a dire basta', meaning 'enough!' — is there for you to hold up when you're too full to eat any more. Otherwise, for $30 a person, the Italian feast will continue, with a never-ending circulation of antipasti, sharing plates, pizza and pasta. The menu changes weekly, but expect plates along the lines of freshly-sliced prosciutto, calamari salad, meatballs, risotto, gnocchi and dessert. Plus, some seriously good pizza (of the thin, chewy kind!).

A dire basta runs every Sunday night at La Svolta Prahran from 5.30pm.
