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

The wife and I went for our anniversary and were not disappointed. First class food and service, in fact the food we ordered was faultless. Was a very busy Friday night, good atmosphere too!

I selected this restaurant having seen it on TV (Foxtel, Food Safari Italy) for our next anniversary. We selected the degustation and the waiter very helpfully assisted in selecting a good menu; which consisted of scallops (excellent), fettuccine al tartufovo (as I understand it, their signature dish; was divine), fish (blue eye; excellent) and duck (... perhaps slightly overcooked), followed...

We booked the degustazione for six, including one vegan. Also, we drank only Italian wines and the sommelier was very helpful in choosing wonderful, reasonably priced sparkling, white and red wines. The whole experience was outstanding in every respect. An absolute superlative experience - food, service, ambiance. My favourite dining experience in 20 years in Sydney.

Service was good, I felt we were being looked after. My friend chose the duck and was pleased. I had the Rossini cooked rare and I enjoyed every single piece, it was delicious, the meat was melting in my mouth, the bacon was not overpowering the dish. Great dish. We had semi Alfredo nougat for dessert, it was a very... More

My favourite spot in syd. The building, the atmosphere, the service and knowledge, the pride of the kitchen staff and head chef. The food is incredible. Fettuccini - my goodness. Good wine list and degustation makes you melt. One very satisfied customer.

We took the in-laws here recently and while the service was good and the setting very cosy and traditional Italian, the food was a mixed bag. I can't actually remember what I ordered, it was that forgettable. The rest of our group were quite happy with theirs but I remember thinking I could have made mine at home, which isn't... More

Indeed an old fashion italian place...atmosphere, service, owner...all in place. Attentive service overall. Consistent food and always the eye of the owner around which makes you feel at home. The fettuccine and the Rossini simply outstanding ! Good variety of wines. Fora italia !!!

Quality food that was well presented. Staff were superior. They were efficient and polite. Classy place without being pretentious. We went with a group so had a choice of 3 for entree and the same for main and dessert. Entree of marinated raw salmon was excellent. Main of baked snapper fillet was overcooked and overwhelmed by the olives and red... More
