I have never enjoyed eating as much as I did at Berta....

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... read 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

We took advantage of the brief return to the kitchen for Chrissie Manfield at Berta for 6 weeks only. Packed to the rafters with the early session running over the wait was tedious but it was worth it!!!! Every dish was delicious and all good for sharing we loved all of them. Everything was in the Berta style but no... More

Had never even heard of this little establishment but a group of ladies suggested trying it because Christine Manfield was the guest chef. We had a booking for the second seating as it's so popular they had two sittings. We got a free champagne while we were waiting as we all got there 15 mins early, so our table was... More

My australian colleague recommended me this restaurant as I often visit Sydney for work. I came here twice and the recent time I came here with my husband. We enjoyed our night here. We seated at the bar table so got lots of chances to speak with the staff about food and wine. All the staff is very knowledageable about... More

Excellent share food, with superb service. Duck Papadelle best kept to yourself. Wine list all Italian and a bit obscure and pricey. Hidden on a back alley, but our best meal in Sydney in a week. $85/head inc wine.

Certainly hard to find, but modern Italian cuisine that could not be faulted. Great ambience, attentive and knowledgeable staff. Visited with my husband and son. Decided to try a degustation style menu to share. $75 per head, but so worth it. All the beverages authentic Italian, from a variety of regions. Discovered it online. Rang to book only an hour...

The retuarant is tucked away in a lane way and it feels like an adventure as you enter the via the hidden door and walk the long concrete hallway to the restaurant area where the room opens up. Loved the ambiance, the staff were terrific, very attentive and helpful and the food was great. Designed to be shared my son... More
