My husband and I went there to jointly celebrate our 60th birthdays. We waited until we were able to stay overnight in the city as we wanted to have the degustation with matching wines as we have had it before and loved it. We weren't disappointed- it was even better, as our waiter allowed us to choose our own dishes!... More

Buon Ricordo (“Good Memories”) doesn’t just deliver on its name, it surpasses. Good memories? Fantastic memories! An absolutely wonderful Italian restaurant, just off Boundary Road in Paddington. An old sign swings outside an unassuming building. High windows from the street do not allow you to look in and see the warm, inviting interior. Romance is the name of the game... More

The team at BR were excellent when we had 50 people for a senior corporate function upstairs. The food was excellent, varied and service impeccable. Whether dining for two or fifty BR is great value for money. Congratulations guys.

This is the perfect romantic dining experience. Atmosphere, service and food were all splendid. The main attraction is the truffle pasta which is made at your table and to die for. We had the degustation and its was spot on. We loved it so much, we bought a voucher for our friends to dine there. They too loved it. A... More

1st of all this is my 3rd visit to this restaurant in as many years. I am not a regular as such. I do however book my table through my American Express concierge so I don't know if that affects service when I go there. I have never found the staff rude at this Restaurant but then maybe not to...

Have been a patron for 10 years plus at this location and I have never been disappointed. Food, ambiance, wine & yes the host are second to none. In the age of restaurant openings & closings this establishment provides a sense of comfort and always quality. Having read a few iffy reviews of late felt compelled to tell all that... More

EXPERIENCE AT BUON RICORDO On the night of Friday 6th June a party of 4 of us dined at Buon Ricordo. We were seated at a table in the middle of this relatively small restaurant. Presumably much as a well know Food Guide states, although on this occasion seemingly mainly wandering around the room rather than the restaurant, ‘Armando Percuoco... More

This restaurant is pitched at people who are happy to pay top dollar. What they get for it is very well prepared food and an exceptional wine list and if they pay enough, fawning supercilious service. But woe betides people who aren't especially hungry or who are being economical. Then the wait staff are rude and uncaring. I won't be... More

Honestly as an Italian who is familiar with most Italian cuisine I could not fault the food one bit, it is fine dining but fantastic! The kingfish carpaccio was delicious especially.. My only complaint was the waitstaff were extremely rude and off putting. Being a group of women in our late 20's we were treated like we were some sort... More

I flew up from Melbourne with 3 family members just to have a birthday dinner here. It is that good. I have eaten here about 6 times and it is always excellent. The service is outstanding, the food exceptional. Traditional Italian food with a gentleness to it that is totally captivating. The fettuccine with a truffled egg is amazing. Wines... More
