Bon Ricordo is an institution in Sydney offering the very best of fine Italian cuisine. The food, ambience and staff make you feel like you have arrived in Italy. The dining area creates a lovely intimate feel. It really is a restaurant where you need to savor both the food, the Chianti and good,company. I was fortunate to have met... More

This past Saturday evening I ate at Buon Ricardo. I’m sorry to report that this once famed restaurant in Sydney has lost its charm, and recently a Good Food Guide hat. Like the lady who writes below, the waiters were too slow and constantly needed to be reminded for things – water, wine, ordering. There were five waiters on the... More

The food is nice. The fettuccini is worth trying. The wait staff are very slow and constantly need reminding. The wine list is varied and very expensive. We are locals and will not return.

We were a group of 4 celebrating a birthday. This restaurant looks like a traditional Italian restaurant in Italy, tiled floor, white coated waiters. The food was excellent, salmon from a New Zealand glacier, beef from Angus cattle, sparklingly fresh seafood and a jolly nice bottle of chianti. The service was eclectic, I found this humorous (spot the waiter who... More

Went here on our first day 12 years ago and now visit every time we are in Sydney. The signature white truffle pasta is to die for! The best food you can imagine. The menu never changes but that is the beauty of this restaurant.

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...
