The team at Australian Good Food Guide have announced their five favourite restaurants from around the country to get your pasta fix today on World Pasta Day, and we’re ecstatic we’ve made the list.⁠⁠⁠

In case you missed it, here’s what Leigh O’Connor from AGFG had to say about Balboa ⁠Italian.

“For a truly memorable dining experience, enter Balboa Italian restaurant perched along Gold Coast Highway in Palm Beach. Guests are greeted, by a towering red-brick building, fitted out with charcoal black finishings, while inside modern luxe meets industrial charm with a moody vibe created by hanging chandeliers, overflowing greenery, high ceilings, exposed metal beams, intimate nooks and private seating areas. ⁠

Delve into pappardelle al ragu at Balboa Italian (Dish featured)⁠. Plus pasta plates such as spaghetti alle cozze – with mussels, spicy nduja, almonds, tomato, garlic, white wine and butter sauce – await those looking to celebrate all things Italian on Monday; along with charcoal-infused fettuccine, with prawns and lobster essence.”⁠

Thanks so much to the team at Australian Good Food Guide for featuring us.
