Next Door, Sydney CBD

Pizza and cocktails. 
Pizza, pasta, and cocktail from Next Door

Yes, please.

Now. I'm sure every Sydney-siders would be familiar with Made In Italy - the popular alleyway pizza place that always sees people lining up and leaving with stacks of pizza boxes. Well, now they've decided that it is a good idea to get a fancier spot to both enjoy the pizza & pasta, with a couple of cocktails on the side.

And what a good idea it is. Welcome, Next Door.

The interior is a food-blogger's nightmare but a couple's heaven. Dim lights and dark bar just delivers a quite romantic and that Saturday-night kind of ambiance. Our waiter of the night was Maurizio, who was super friendly, active, and funny, and always keen to offer you the recommendations.

The cocktails are $16 per pop but they also have beers, wines, and ciders. Two most favourited cocktails arrived on our table; Made At York Lane and Girl Next Door.

While the former has stronger alcohol and a little bit more acidic, we fought over the Girl Next Door that has delicious sweetness and fresh aroma that lingers.

Made At York Lane - rosemary infused Bombay Sapphire Gin, Aperol, fresh lemon with rosemary sprigs ($16)

Girl Next Door - cucumber infused Bacardi Carta Bianca, fresh lime, watermelon, with fresh cucumber ($16)

The best part about Gamberi is the plump prawns. Albeit not very big, they are precious morsels that have been nicely spiked by the fragrant oregano and flavorful spicy sauce.

Gamberi - fresh prawns, oregano, chilli, garlic, parmesan ($18)

I love my carbs. Pasta is just one of the best god send.

Mamma Mia has a great balance between creamy and tart, especially from the tomato. The mushrooms are popping excitement, and the fact that the fetuccine is cooked to perfection just makes the plate even better.

Fetuccine Mamma Mia - Italian sausage, mushroom, cream, and chilli in napoletana sauce ($18)

No seats at Made In Italy? No need for take-away, just go to Next Door. Literally.
