La Goccia is from the people behind Petersham Nurseries, and it’s like the beautiful lovechild of a spa and a florists. But, with Italian small plates thrown in for good measure. Yes, the backs of the chairs are metal mouldings in the shape of leaves and there’s plenty of fresh seasonal produce. But, on a summer’s day the real draw is the courtyard. This is a great spot for a classy catch up with some ravioli, and a botanical cocktail.
