The boyfriend and I were in the mood to keep it simple for date night. That doesn’t mean we skimped on taste though! We made reservations for a cafe up the road for 7:45pm and got ready a little earlier than normal so we could make walk up there.

I’m a creep haha.
Fifteen minutes later we arrived at Caffe Diamante.
And sat at our special number 6 table. Simon first asked me to be ‘his girlfriend’ on the 6th day of the 6th month (June- which is also my birth month). Which makes today exactly 43 months that we’ve been dating- or 3 years and 7 months.
We had never eaten here before but I knew it was Italian food. Sticking to tradition I went with a delicious tomato sauce based gnocchi dish with bacon, mushrooms, spinach and a hint of chilli. Topped with the necessary parmesan cheese.
It was the best goddamn gnocchi I have ever eaten! I loved the huge tomato flavour enhanced by the bacon and the kick at the end thanks to the chilli. The servings were huge for the very reasonable price that the dish was. I ended up shamelessly asking for a doggy bag to take leftovers home for mum who is still quite sick (top daughter).
The bf took the wrong route (in my opinion ha) and ordered a 350g eye fillet with pepper sauce, salad and chips.
The meat was a tad fatty at times and he mentioned he has had better pepper sauces but still managed to scoff it all down.
