Perched opposite Manly Wharf is Criniti’s, a swirling wonderland of welcoming familial vibes and a helluva lot of sweets, pizza and pasta. They’ve recently changed up their menu, making for a fresh new addition to the most regular Criniti’s and Manly goers. At the pantry you’ll find a delectable selection of sweets to choose from, handmade daily, perfectly paired with your morning coffee. Or, have it boxed up as a takeaway so you can enjoy it at home. 

They make everything from scratch; the day starts for the team with the morning baking that includes croissants, scrolls and banana breads, before moving onto tarts, cakes, biscuits and cannoli, filling the glass display in time for the first round of hungry early risers. 

Try a towering slice of Tiramisu, a Red Velvet stack, a delicate Lemon Meringue or some Cronuts. They’ve got you vegans covered too, with their deliciously rich chocolate cake, as well as the traditional Italian sweets and biscuits straight from the Criniti family. 

As always, the newly innovative menu comes from the tried and true, known and loved Criniti family recipes. 

If you don’t feel like being a little cheeky and enjoying a sweet treat, they’ve got ample brekky and lunch options for you to choose from. With a new innovative menu in sizes so big you’ll wish you could try them all at once (in true Criniti’s style), we’re here to take you through the mouthwatering offerings one by one. 

The Bruschetta Breads are a light but immensely flavourful lunch choice, perfect for sharing and available in a range of delicious varieties. The Olive & Eggplant Bruschetta is our pick, with its olive tapenade, marinated eggplant and gratinated mozzarella, all on slices of woodfired foccacia. For the hedonistic flavour lovers, the Salmon & Avocado Bruschetta is your jam. Or go for the veggie option, the Veggie Focaccia.

The Polenta Porridge is a delish, if not innovative spin on the classic brekky staple. Made of polenta with almond vanilla, maple syrup, poached rhubarb & berry, and roasted pistachio, it’s also available all day so you don’t have to rush!

For light lunch option, try the Poke Bowl: an incredible mix of fresh cured salmon, edamame and many more fresh ingredients. 

If you’re feeling brave, or simply know what you love, don’t worry; they’ve still got their 0.5M, 1M, 2M and 3M woodfired pizzas.

Safe to say, Criniti’s brand new menu is bursting with innovation from the inspiration of fresh, quality ingredients; get the team together, book a table, and embark on the tough journey of taste testing it all today.
