Sogno Ital­ian restau­rant, Port Moresby

Paradise - - In Paradise | Contents -

These days, there are sev­eral din­ing op­tions in Port Moresby for lovers of Ital­ian food, but Sogno Ris­torante Ital­iano, nes­tled on the edge of the Har­bour­side de­vel­op­ment in town, as­pires to be a class of its own. The restau­rant of­fers a full menu for lunch and dinner, from an­tipasti to soups, pasta, pizza, sal­ads, mains and desserts.

With the restau­rant of­fer­ing mar­vel­lous views of Port Moresby’s har­bour, it’s no sur­prise that seafood plays a star­ring role on the menu.

The gam­beri in padela (prawns in a light tomato sauce) and tonno alla vesu­viana (se­same-en­crusted tuna) are high­lights on the starter menu, while the spaghetti di mare (seafood pasta) and ravi­oli all’aragosta (home­made ravi­oli filled with lob­ster meat in a cream sauce) are main dishes full of flavour. Lo­cal PNG pro­duce is com­bined with some taste­ful im­ports, such as New Zealand beef and Tas­ma­nian salmon. There are sev­eral veg­e­tar­ian op­tions (such as the risotto al porcini), and a dessert menu fea­tur­ing Ital­ian clas­sics such as pan­na­cotta and tiramisu.

The deck at Sogno is also a great place to watch the sun go down (why not try their sig­na­ture cock­tail, the Sogno Sun­set?) and is also avail­able for func­tions.
