Fiamme Trattoria is a modern Italian restaurant in Albion owned and run by two passionate and talented young chefs. It has become our go-to restaurant in Brisbane for true Italian wood-fire style Pizza. On our last visit to the restaurant we snapped a few pics to share our experience with Gianni's Nonna (and with all of you)!
At first glance you will quickly notice a few things; a little white Vespa out front (the timeless masterpiece of pizza delivery), the checkered tablecloths (a homage to a traditional trattoria) and a huge open kitchen with a giant authentic pizza oven from Napoli taking centre-stage (the pride of the chefs). You may even notice the eclectic collection of chef pants the owners like to wear (a tribute to their fun and modern but traditional approach).
We ordered a few basics for a mid-week treat starting with a 'Bruschetta di Pizza' to get our fix of pizza, prosciutto, san marzano tomatoes and mozzarella all in one perfect ensemble. The penne with creamy porcini mushrooms and parmesan was a special request to let the chefs put their passion and flare to work; boy did it pay off! Their spaghetti 'al sapore del mare' ticked all the right boxes. Perfectly cooked pasta and fresh seafood, paid the respect it deserved with a good hit of chilli. A side of roasted vegetables and a glass of vino and we were in heaven.
We strongly suggest you get down and meet Nicola (Nick) and Craig and let them showcase their talents and tantalize your tastebuds with one of their specials. We will be coming back with Nonna soon!
