Now that I know Sydney better, I love visiting all the places in Melina Marchetta’s books. Yesterday, my mum, sister, and I visited Bar Italia in Leichhardt and indulged in some gelato. I couldn’t resist grabbing an S biscuit as well, since they play such a big role in Saving Francesca.
If you want to visit Bar Italia, you’ll find it on 169-171 Norton Street, Leichhardt. The hazelnut gelato tastes like a Ferrero Rocher and the S biscuits are full of lemony goodness.
