HOBART | Templo is a small, 20 seat restaurant in the back streets of Hobart that focuses on perfecting the simple things that matter most about dining – high quality, produce driven food, unique drinks, communal dining and fun. Its gets all of these right, and is one of the favourite places we’ve eaten at this year.

The small, simply furnished venue contains only a few tables and stools, which means there’s a very convivial atmosphere about the place. Owners Matt Breen (head chef) and Chris Chapple (front of house) do almost everything themselves, from scratch, and with the kitchen being visible (but not open) to the dining room, it’s hard not to be engaged by all of the going ons behind the scenes.

The menu is small with an Italian bent – featuring around 10 items that change depending on what’s fresh and good on the day. The drinks list is also small, featuring unique and interesting wines that pair well with the food, along with a few cocktails and local beers. You can go for either the chef’s tasting menu, which allows you to try everything on the menu, or order al la carte. Either way you can’t go wrong, as everything here is fantastic.

Breen spent a few months working at Melbourne’s famed pasta restaurant Tipo 00, and his skill shines through in the pasta dishes. One of the favourite things we’ve eaten this year is the gnocchetti, which is made fresh daily. The exact flavours used in the dish change depending on the season – when we visited, it was served with a pork sausage, other versions include broccolini & chilli, and nettle & broccoli. The gnocchetti are light, fluffy, creamy pillows of goodness. We loved them so much that we ordered another serve, something we don’t ever do when eating out. If it’s on the menu, order it.

Everything else we ate was fantastic too – spongy house made sourdough, crispy crackers topped with seasonal tomatoes and burrata, freshly caught fish, zucchini flowers and a negroni. Simple, refined food, with friendly service in a casual, laid back space make Templo a must visit dining destination for anyone who finds themselves in Hobart.
