Bunda Street s Dolce & Salato
Pasticceria offers Canberrans an
authentic Italian cafe experience,
from the opera music playing in the
store, to the sleek black and white
staff uniforms, to the stunning
Carrara marble tables.
The entire store was built in Italy
and then shipped to Australia to keep
everything as genuine as possible,
and that spirit of quality and
authenticity is carried over to the
"We offer premium coffee, a
wood-fired kitchen, and handmade
pasta dishes, which vary day-to-day,"
co-owner Cathy Tinelli said.
"The crab and Morton Bay bug
lasagne is a specialty. We only make
a dozen of those a day, and they tend
to sell out.
"But what we love to focus on,
which is evident from our display
cabinet, is the diverse array of cakes,
slices, desserts and sweet treats.
These include old-school Italian
biscuits, which are all made onsite."
The shining glass cabinet is
packed with dozens of sweet treats to
tempt customers -- there are more
cakes, cheesecakes, slices, tarts,
pastries and baked goods than you
"We ve come up with this new
dessert that s a combination of a
tiramisu and a profiterole in one, and
that s one of the most popular things
Dolce & Salato specialises in
cakes, which can be custom-made
and elegantly decorated for any
occasion. It also offers gift packs of
authentic Italian biscuits, in small
bags or large trays to take home and
share, and the house-made gelato
remains one of the most popular
options even throughout winter.
The cafe, which has been trading
on Bunda Street since December last
year, is well and truly livening up its
corner of the city.
Ms Tinelli is confident that it will
only get bigger and better.
"It s the best location in Canberra,"
"We re open really late, so if
you re here after the movies or if
you re eating dinner somewhere else,
dessert at Dolce is a must."
Dolce & Salato Pasticceria is
open daily from 8am until late.

PLAYS AT CANBERRA REP
Tom Stoppard s Arcadia has been
cited by many critics as the finest play
in the English language. In the 19th
century Thomasina is a precocious
teenager with ideas about mathematics
ahead of her time. She studies with her
tutor. In the present a writer and an
academic converge on the house. The
writer is investigating a hermit who
once lived on the grounds. As their
investigations unfold, the truth is
gradually revealed. The play is
presented from July 31 to August 16
hosted by the Canberra Repertory
Society. For bookings call 6247 4222.
POSSIBLE SNOW IN
THE CITY ON FRIDAY
Canberrans have been urged to make
the most of an unseasonably warm
start to the week with meteorologists
refusing to rule out the possibility of
snow falling in the city on Friday.
Weatherzone meteorologist Ben
McBurnie said a cold air mass on
Thursday could bring showers, sleet
and snow to the territory on Friday.
THE LIMITS OF HUMAN
STRENGTH IN CIRCA'S 'S'
Circa s S explores the possibilities of
human strength and flexibility through
a daring interplay of complex
acrobatics. A physical ode to the
human body and spirit, S is raw
energy, dazzling in its intensity. A
melange of bodies perform to
intoxicating music from Kimmo
Pohjonen, Samuli Kosminen and the
Kronos Quartet; their sinuous
movement at one with the pace and
rhythm of the score. The performance
takes place at the Canberra Theatre
Centre from August 6.
