Great food, lively atmosphere.

We had the "Sagra" tonight which was on a citrus theme. It was delicious - 4 courses with a citrus element for each course. My favourite was the John Dory with lemon parsley, my second favourite was the dessert of tangelo meringue. We enjoyed it so much that we've re booked for the olive oil Sagra... read more

We had the "Sagra" tonight which was on a citrus theme. It was delicious - 4 courses with a citrus element for each course. My favourite was the John Dory with lemon parsley, my second favourite was the dessert of tangelo meringue. We enjoyed it so much that we've re booked for the olive oil Sagra in two weeks' time.

We had a reservation at 6:15-8:15pm. We were A group of 6 ladies. Half of us with dietary requirements ( No Lamb, or beef and peanut allergies). The waiter suggested the Chefs Menu as it changes all the time and Chefs are very selective with their choices. So we went ahead and ordered the Chefs Menu at $80 per person... More

Very enjoyable evening with a Melbourne type vibe/ambience. The food was good, and is a share meal type restaurant. The fried smoked mozzarella is appetising with an edgy smoked taste (as one would expect) and the appetiser dish of lamb tongue was delicious! The burrata is exceptional with a hearty pesto and tomato accompaniment - this I would recommend the... More

We went to Berta's with another couple and decided to order the banquet option - where a variety of foods are brought to you throughout the evening. I enjoyed most of the plates as did the others. The wait staff was attentive and knowledgeable. Trying to find this takes a bit a trust as its in a place you wouldn't... More

This was our first visit to Berta and the guest chef appearance of Christine Manfield was the draw card!!!! This tiny , buzzy space hidden in a side street has atmosphere and the food that night was sensational. It's a sharing kind of dinner so lots of tastes of lots of dishes. Christine put her own spin on Italian cooking... More

Hard to spot, Italianesque restaurant. We were looking for a posh dinner out before embarking on a cruise and we hit on this little gem. We had trouble finding the place but rang and one of the staff met us and guided us back which was great service. The menu was complex especially if your Italian is not good but... More

I'm not too sure what the fuss is about. Went here for an anniversary celebration and had the degustation. The food was fine but nothing memorable. Yes the service was friendly. Nice room. But the food was just not that exciting and quite pricey.

Went on the basis of recent good reviews and guest appearance by Chrissie Manfield. Crowded space and the noisiest restaurant I have ever been to! Staff on energy drinks, rush around adding to the sensation of crazy and maddening high pace, not ideal for a relaxing Friday night after a busy week! Example, one staff member when asked to explain... More

This over rated over priced restaurant represents everything that is wrong about the Sydney restaurant scene at the moment. Silly fawning reviews make it the "hot" place of the moment but they do not provide sufficient wait staff to manage the ludicrously crowded conditions. Diners are crammed into a small stuffy room which is loud and unpleasant. They offer early... More

Jesus walks, and he's the chef at Berta. I don't know what happened here, because a business meal turned in to three bottles of wine (I can't remember what is was called, but three bottles between two will do that) and a plethora of chefs choice plates. If I could go back ANYWHERE in Sydney and eat, I would go... More
