This will be my first of many restaurant, fooderies etc that I’ll be sharing my dining experiences with.

Was invited for a surprise 21st birthday celebration at Medici, and serves Italian food (One of my favourite cuisines).
The venue was quite nice, it had a relaxed, casual vibe to it and can cater up to 300 people so it was quite large and open. The waiters/waitresses were friendly and efficient.
I ordered the Vegetable Risotto (My vegetarian phase) and the group of us shared a few large pizzas as well.
I recall it had diced carrots, small broccoli and diced tomatoes in a napoli sauce, it looked decent. My experiences with risotto lie solely with Sofia’s Restaurants, so I’m no expert but my taste buds know good food!
Taste wise, it was average, the napoli sauce had no flavour to it, it was very generic Italian that even a can or jar supermarket sauce could beat. Basically, it was nothing special.
The actual risotta was cooked just as I wanted it, not overly soft that it resembled a porridge but texture wise it was up there with my only other risotto experience.
My friend ordered the Risotto Pollo and visually looked great, mine just didn’t look as appealing at all and the taste met that.
Would I go back? Possibly, to try the pastas or the other risotto but I wouldn’t be rushing there any time soon.
