La Casalinga

La Casalinga was a restaurant in Adelaide that closed about seven years ago. According to Babelfish this is Italian for "The Housewife". It has also seems to have been used for restaurant names in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane but your reviewer visited a well established cafe in Alice Springs by that name. It was not quite clear where to sit and how to order in this restaurant. There was a takeaway counter dealing with the takeaway pizza trade. The dine-in patrons were sat in one of two areas. On one side of a line in the floor patrons were offered table service and in the other the patrons had to order at the takeaway counter, except for drinks which were ordered at the bar. This was confusing and not explained by the waitress greeting us. We therefore ended up ordering food at the takeaway counter and the drinks at the bar. The food could have been better.

The hot chocolate was $3.50 and needed to be purchased from the bar rather than the take-away counter. The hot chocolate was a milk chocolate flavour and topped with a white froth and a sprinkle of chocolate powder.
