Jimanick is a beautiful family villa set in the majestic hills between Yarra Valley and Mt Dandenong - just a short distance from Tesselaar's tulip farm and local areas of Monbulk, Seville, Lilydale, Mt Evelyn and Olinda.
Join la famiglia at Jimanick on Monbulk Road in Silvan for wood fired pizza and pasta just like Nonna makes. This new bambino on the Italian block sets a rustic vibe; from comfortable leather booths in front of the fire (ideal for lingering with a glass of red) with polished timber and plaster walls, to traditional meats suspended from a ladder made by Great Nonno.
Say buon appetito to tantalising aromas wafting from Ned the pizza oven and choose from an ever-evolving menu, perhaps starting with calamari fritti and lemon aioli, or bruschetta-nduja topped by local tomatoes, basil, goats cheese and balsamic. Pick up a slice of roast mushroom pizza, with pumpkin, peppers, fior di latte, basil, Parmesan and salad leaves; or delve into a main of pork belly, roast vegetables, pear and Madeira sauce.
Open Tuesdays for dinner from 5pm to10pm; Wednesday to Sunday 12pm to 10pm.
