Cosy Italian

This cosy restaurant was packed on a Wednesday night. The menu is ever changing and on a.blackboard. The antipasti was delicious and served very quickly. Octopus with olives, peppers and celery was tender and tasty. The Prosviutto came with the best breadsticks I've ever had. We tried two different... read more

We managed to get an outdoor table without a booking on a very busy Friday night - only had to wait 30minutes and the restaurant called us. We shared olives and grissini and the scallops for entree. I had tagliatelle with pipis and my partner the slow roasted sirloin. The food was beautiful, timed nicely not too quick or slow.... More

I was delighted with my visit to Vini! The Menu, which changes daily was fine, the selection of regional Italian wines incredible and the best, most knowledgeable service that I've had in a long time!!

This was a business dinner where I hosted eight. Average price was about $90 per head including alcohol. Food was excellent and a decent range of wine, well matched to food. Service was very prompt and staff polite and helpful Bookings are desirable. I called on short notice and they squeezed us in, but it would be hard to do... More

This was one of the most delicious meals my husband and I have ever had, we could not fault the meal, the wonderful selection of Italian wines and the friendly, knowledgeable staff. Well done, we will be back!

My friend and I attended the RFT of Calabria (set menu) on a Tuesday evening. The food was melt in your mouth to die for! The Sicilian wine was equally divine. Service and atmosphere were superb. Highly recommended.

We dropped by on a Wednesday night without a reservation. No problem. Quick service - our shared entree of peppers with olives and pecorino arrived promptly. I enjoyed the lamb which was tender and gelatinous, and my companion found the dory excellent. There is an extensive Italian wine list, covering two walls - slightly awkward to read from my seat...

The first resturant I have ever walked out of after ordering. Wait staff were so extremely rude, it blew my mind! Such a shame because they say the food is fantastic but not worth the attitude. Go somewhere else there are amazing places to eat in Sydney with lovely waitstaff!

We were after a rustic Italian bistro and that is exactly what we got. After waiting only 10 or so minutes for a table with no reservation - this time was put to good use perusing the wine board with assistance from helpful and knowledgeable staff. The rabbit was excellent but to our surprise the hero was the salted cod... More
