Great pizza!

We tried this restaurant at our daughters' request - they are frequent visitors. Luckily we booked the day before as it was packed, and consequently extremely noisy - but obviously didn't bother the BYTs sitting at the tables: just we older fogies! The food, however, was excellent. The girls had... read more

I had eaten at Pizza e Birra a few years ago (maybe 4 or 5) and remember I had a good memory of that pizza. What I've eaten today it's a complete different story, a thing which resembles more Pizza Express rather than the real deal. The dough is questionable, no sight of the border ("cornicione" in Italian), very crusty:... More

Fat Mondays - what a way to start the week. I felt like I could tackle (very slowly) anything after that. The pizza was plentiful and delicious, great atmosphere for a friendly and cheerful dinner.

It's A great place to grab a bite. It's quick and the food is good. The service is not the best. You can also get takeaway. Local

I am sure it has changed hands. Food, atmosphere, service has all gone off. Walking in, to see a HUGE TV on was my first put off. Birra beer now off the menu!! There was always a long queue to get into this restaurant, not any more. I will not be back.

We returned here after 3 years, on our second visit to Australia. The restaurant always seems to be crowded and it is a bit noisy as others have said, primarily because of the hard surfaces all around the restaurant. But we have found the food, especially the pizza, to be very good. In the space of a week we ate... More

The pizza was good, one of the best I've tried in Sydney so far; just a bit overpriced. A bit too noisy if you like to have a chat while eating.

It was packed and loud and that seemed exactly right. We shared a salad and a couple of pizzas. Everything was delicious. Despite the crowd, the service was excellent.

We visited here with friends while visiting Sydney. We were told the pizza was authentic and we weren't disappointed. The food was brilliant but what topped it was the restaurant itself. The atmosphere was incredible, we sat by the windows which were wide open and the street was busy too. We really enjoyed this restaurant. Would love to return one... More

Many years ago the food use to be good, as for last night that was by far the worst pizza we have ever eaten. Firstly the so called garlic pizza came out with a layer of salt on top of it. Myself being a chef I love salt but this was a over kill, we never complain when we go... More
