Great innovative food, always a surprise and matching Italian wine. Price is reasonable for Sydney which became an expensive place. The Tuesday nights Degustation menu - unfortunately- is coming to and end due to the departure of their Chef. This place is a real treat!

As business lunches go, this place is good in terms of range and service. And the foreign range of wines was most enjoyable. BUT! For the price that I paid and for the amount of food that I received, I think I could certainly have done better. Thankfully, my colleague paid so I didn't have to.

Blink and you could miss the entrance to this restaurant tucked away in the side lane that is Alberta St, Sydney but once though the door and down the hallway you enter an Alladin's cave, the jewels of which are the staff....in the kitchen and on the floor. We booked for the Tuesday evening Sagra (festival) fixed menu with matched... More

Didn't have a booking and so sat at the bar. I was by myself but engaging and knowledgeable staff took me through a wine and gastronomic journey of delight. Asked for a $60 tasting plate and received some of the best taste sensations anywhere. Don't be afraid to say "feed me!" The kingfish was sensational and would now be my... More

From the minute we walked in the door until we left , our waiter was warm, friendly and knowledgeable. He sat with us and explained the menu and recommended the banquet, which is a great way to try the eclectic menu. There was so many courses for us to try, I'm struggling to remember how much we ate, however we... More

This place has a really interesting menu but the reality is that is just doesn't live up to prices required. We had a degustation menu which had an interesting variety but was really not that tasty with a number of serves tasting like what I would have had at a friends house for dinner. Maybe I hit a bad night... More

Was recommended in Timeout so thought we should try it. This place is a wee gem of Sydney and worth the trip to get there! Amazing Italian tapas - beautifully presented and excellent service - highlight was the King fish cerviche & the zucchini flowers. Agree with others reviewers re location and outlook....bit odd but no impact on the stunning... More

tried this 'blindly' after work and after walking past the anonymous looking door a few times I was rewarded with a small but very lively Italian restaurant . The decor is strange - intimate and small inside but you look out at a chain fence and razor wire as well as a giant mural of a lobster in a building... More

Didn't make a reservation so went early @ 6.30pm. Missed the anonymous looking entrance and had to ask for directions. Warmly welcomed and it was about a third full then. Very helpful waitress and the dishes were prepared very quickly. We ordered 5 dishes for two of us and it was just enough - 3 entrees and 2 mains. The... More

Love this place, Italian tapas / street food style . Essentially what you got in the fields on Italy back in the day but with a modern twist. It gets full pretty quickly so book ahead !
