My partner and I visited Sicilian's last night for our 5th anniversary,and were thoroughly disappointed on every level.
My partner and I had frequented the restaurant regularly some years back for various events (multiple friends birthdays, dinner out with friends, our parents visiting etc.. we really did like the place and found it to be quite intoxicating back in the day. However, in our humble opinion the restaurant has certainly fallen from grace in recent years, and is a pitiful shadow of its former self.
I ordered the pork ribs (about $43) and my partner ordered the roast lamb. (about $39) I must confess that my serving was immense - the ribs were certainly mind boggling in size. In addition, my partners roast lamb was hung vertically on a spit, so the appearance was quite enticing. However, that's where my praise ends.
The food was disappointingly bland, even for Italian. My ribs were dry and the sauce tasted like it had been sitting around for a week in the sun. My chips (under the ribs) were only half cooked - and i didn't eat more than about 3 or 4 of my ribs in total. My partners dish was slightly better - the roast tasted o-k. Just like something you might cook on a Sunday night for the family. ie the food was food and just that. It didnt taste anything other then what you would have at home, on a regular basis, and was certainly nothing special; and absolutely not worth the $40 odd dollars we paid for it.
The final nail in the coffin came when we were winding up the night. I asked for a glass of water with my desert, only to be served with an EXTREMELY scratched, beaten up glass. Please do not take me to be petty here in anyway. The glass looks like it has been left in the back of a Ute, and driven to Perth and back - twice!
This certainly wouldn't have happened back in Sicilian's hey-day, and I am very sorry to say that my partner and I will never, ever, be going back again.
