Pilu at Freshwater
Housed in a heritage building near Freshwater Beach, Pilu serves Italian cuisine and fantastic water views. The chef is originally from Sardinia, and the menu marries this Italian influence to local ingredients; consider such dishes as battered zucchini flower and Claire de Lune oysters. Served with seasoned olive oil and roasted potatoes, the suckling pig is a house specialty. The unfussy dining room feels like an enclosed veranda with crisp tablecloths, an exposed-beam ceiling, and wide, arching windows. Pilu's award-winning wine list includes vintages from Australia and Italy.
