I have been there twice now and the food was fantastic. The pasta is handmade there and was as good as the restaurants I've been to in Italy. The atmosphere is great and the service good. A great location in the CBD.

I have little to say about this place. This was our first time dining here and we were not aware of a gratuity charge that apparently is assumed by the rude restaurant managers. When we paid and as our group were entering the elevator to leave, the restaurant manager and one other staff were standing there glaring at us from... More

Firstly, I have to state the actual food and waiter service was actually great which is probably the most important thing. The food arrived in time, was succulent but you do wonder if it's actually worth the money - 40$ for 6 pieces of pasta on a medium plate is ridiculously expensive no matter how tasty, but if impressing your...

Pendolino again delighted when we dined in the private 'room' and although we had a set menu there was a good selection coupled with great service and complemented with wonderful wine. Well done to the team at this gem of a restaurant

My husband and I love this restaurant. We have dined here many times over the years: as a couple; with family; with friends; to celebrate special occasions and as a pre-theatre meal. Each and every time we have been treated with respect and the food has been consistently delicious. The restaurant is located in the beautiful historical Strand Arcade, only... More

My wife and I recently returned from a beautiful 13-day Australia holiday. After travelling to several places in Europe and Asia, we wanted to go beyond and selected Australia for its beautiful landscapes, and of course, its food! It was brilliant, all over in Melbourne, Cairns and Sydney, but only till we went to the Pendolino for a drink with... More

I go to Pendolino at least once a month with clients or friends, it is a restaurant that never disappoints on service or standard of food each time. Will keep going.

Went to this place with 3 other friends on a not-so-busy Tuesday evening. We didnt have a plan in mind when we reached the place around 6:45pm. After a round of drinks we planned to leave coz we booked tickets for the Sydney eye tower which has its last entry at 930 pm. We told them we wont eat and... More

This restaurant was recommended to us and we made a reservation for that evening. We were quite surprised how expensive it was for an Italian restaurant, but I must say the food was excellent! It was well worth it. The service was just OK...
