Food was tasty with good size portions and delivered in a timely manner by our attentive and friendly waitress. One of the better restaurants of Stanley Street and we'll definitely be back to try more dishes from the menu. Ensure to leave room for desert as the tiramisu is amazing.

Delicious pizzas and very generous salad portion. Friendly service. OK for families, groups, couples, though probably not very romantic. Some of the tables a bit too close together - some people don't mind that - I do. But would go back next time in the area. We only had pizza but the appearance and aroma of other meals would encourage... More

My friends and I had a great night at Trovata, but the restaurant had a few flaws but also good things. First of all, I thought the menu to be to comprehensive for such kind of restaurants. Too many choices which confused the concept and stress visitors. Nevertheless I settled with the Trovata Chargrilled Cumin Crusted Lamb Back Strap which... More

New years day and most of the east Sydney restaurants are shut but this one was open so we thought we would give it a try. Great family owned atmosphere, friendly staff and really authentic Italian food. The pasta is wonderful and the pizza was really good. We will be back.

We visited for Saturday lunch from 130pm and the place was busy but the service was good, attentive without hovering. We shared a great mezzo plate for 2 that was enormous and with a good selection. Mains were roast turkey with all the trimmings (generous and cooked appropriately) and a roast duck risotto with corn and snow peas (excellent and... More

Trovato is a great place to enjoy the laid back ambiance of Stanley Street. A phone call at 8pm on a Saturday night had a table of 4 seated by 915pm. And the best bit the staff were not at all put out by our later eating habits!! We ate from the menu and the specials board and found everything... More

We had a table for two last night around 8pm as a walk in, the helpful staff were more than willing to accommodate us, the atmosphere was great and lovely warm feeling inside. There was a noisy christmas party on the table next to us, but it all added to the laid back, comfortable atmosphere. I had the King Prawn... More
