In one word: Bland
I love the sign on the door of Impasto Forno Antico stating that "We are not hipsters or foodies. We are Italian."
That said, Italian food is normally full of flavour. I did not try any savoury items from the store so cannot pass judgement there, but I did sit and have a very weak, luke-warm Illy latte and a bland slab of French Vanilla slice. Sensibly priced at $4.50, I guess the slice is good value for money on size and freshness. Where the slice really lacks was in the cream filling. No vanilla was detectable whatsoever and it was definitely not a custard, just your very average, boring cream. I might be back to try some of their beautiful looking bread next time instead.
