I couldn't wait to book again at Vini.i visited a few years back for one of their regional dinners and thought the food was excellent. I took my husband last night and left disappointed. The food we ate was beautiful and everything I expected but the service was terrible. Everything we ordered we had to chase up at least once... More

Absolutely Sensational! We have been dining here for years and have always left satisfied and enlightened. The savoury menu changes weekly and the menu is written on the chalk board. We always doubt the sound of the dishes but are always pleasantly surprised once eating the dishes... The produce is fresh and exquisite tasting yet not heavy and unhealthy. The... More

We were in Sydney for 4 days and we went twice to Vini! The first dinner was perfect: really good food and an attentive service. The second time was a bit disapointing, the restaurant was crowdy and the service was not as friendly as the first time! The food is really really good, the italian wine list is amazing for... More

I've been to Vini a couple of times now and have found them to be consistently amazing. Service is excellent - the super friendly wait staff have mastered the art of being attentive without being intrusive and the timing of each course is spot on. The food itself is fresh and you can tell that it's prepared with great care... More

Vini is consistently amazing. The atmosphere is warm and friendly, the food continues to exceed all my expectations, and the selection of wine puts most other restaurants to shame. Great for a long business lunch, an intimate meal, or just on your own. Thanks team!

A great intimate place to go for dinner with friends or family. The service is attentive. The food is fantastic (love their gnocchi) and the Italian wine is lovely. They have really good desserts too! Great panna cotta. And to top it off, it's good value too. Definitely try it out

Take it as it comes, noisy, busy, atmospheric, small but tempting menu, and large and VERY tempting wine selection. Try it!

it's a little enoteca with impressive Italian wine list and daily menu. it tends to fill up really quickly therefore expect a waiting list. I had an overall pleasant experience, the waitress who served us was very qualified and very informative and helpful.

We had a memorable dinner at Vini while on holiday in Sydney. They were kind enough to accommodate us at late notice on a Friday night (after a 30-minute wait in the pub next door), and it was well worth the wait. The atmosphere has a lovely, cozy atmosphere and it's not uncommon to find yourself talking to other diners... More
