After only coming to Tiamo a few weeks ago, I came back to Lygon Street again, but to it's sister restaurant - Tiamo 2! It's meant to have less traditional Italian dishes and more unique/gourmet ones. And I guess it's the higher class of the two, as all the tables are set with wine glasses compared with Tiamo.
They have meat and seafood dishes here, but I was craving some pasta. There's not a wide range of choices but decided to go for the Penne Ragu - small tubed pasta with stewed meat cooked in a rich wine & tomato sauce with shavings of Parmesan cheese $16.90
Pasta was cooked perfectly al dente =) The sauce was rich with flavour but wish they were more generous with the meat - I like my pasta with lots of sauce and stuff =P
6.5/10 - pastas are good here, definitely more unique compared to the traditional pastas served at Tiamo =)
2/5 - no complimentary bread here?! You'd think at the slightly higher class restaurant (compared with Tiamo) that they would definitely give you complimentary bread =P
4/5 - we booked a table so they seated us upstairs, pretty spacious area
