Loved it! Well hidden though behind Travelodge Sydney

I've wanted to go here for ages and when at the spur of the moment with dinner on my mind my partner suggested we go I was sceptical we'd get a seat but we were able to get a table by booking online with Dimmi. There's a parking station around the corner but we found a spot on the street.... read more

Great food, awesome wine and excellent services. I was taken there by a friend and business colleague, lovely small restaurant atmosphere with very good food for sharing.

I'd almost call this place Italian soul food but it would give the wrong impression as there's nothing fried or floury about it. But if you Love fresh and flavoursome ingredients with authentic Italian influence cooked and served with joy and Love, this is the place to be! It's cosy and not a huge space, tucked away down a nondescript... More

When you first dine at a restaurant and have a great meal, the second time you go you have high expectations and are usually disappointed. Not the case with Bertas. I had the zucchini flowers to start followed by cauliflower with silver beet, lentils and hazelnuts. Rarely do you get two top class vegetarian dishes when eating out . I'm... More

Excellent service, divine food, small and warm restaurant. This place is a must go to, snuck down a city lane and felt special. Thank you Berta, you rock.

We searched out this well-hidden restaurant because it was mentioned in 'Where chefs eat'. We had not eaten well in Sydney and looked forward to a set meal wth matched wines. Sadly, the night we went, the set meal was very patchy. Part of the antipasto was peppers on toast, which was burnt and therefore bitter ( as well as... More

Once we had found this little restaurant it was a delight. The very attentive staff looked after us well, explaining the menu, which was all about dishes for sharing. It was quiet the evening we went because of police incident nearby but had a nice atmosphere and would have been even better with more people. We chose three or four... More

Part of the current Eastern suburbs trend - acoustics are difficult, crammed tables, service stretched - we felt like a number rather than an individual. Great wine list , food was good but hardly extraordinary. And the price was $185 a head. Wow. I expect much much more for that kind of moony - at every level. Bistro feel for... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my first experience dining at Berta. Having not read any reviews before, and still not having read any reviews, I didn't know what to expect. Wonderful seasonal and well thought out, balanced menu. A lovely share-plate culture. Nice Italian overtones, especially in respect of the wine list. Knowledgeable waiters on both the wine and the food. Accommodating and... More

We came here on a Saturday night for casual dine. Place tucked away and it easy to find, next to Travelodge. We were also lucky with parking nearby but imagine not always easy. It was very busy on the Saturday night and we had to wait about 15 mins to get a table, but stag were quite good in offering... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
