While traveling in Australia with our 12 year old grandson we were on the lookout for gluten-free fare. Lucetta Pizzeria e Trattoria was just the thing! Casual atmosphere, helpful staff and many GF selections. We had a reservation for 6:30pm and the place was nearly full when we arrived. Grandson and Grandma had the bolognese sauce on pastas--one a delicious... More

My wife ordered a basic no frills pasta dish, which was mediocre although she used another word to describe. Penne Pomodoro is such a simple dish!! As my wife said she could have tossed penne with olive oil & added cherry tomatoes at home for a couple of $$. Pomodoro described on the menu: Cherry tomato, fresh basil and extra... More

It's lunchtime and I'm Glad we booked. Actually it's just turned 12....but it's filling up fast. There are four of us and we all opt for the slightly less than $15 lunch. Happy days. That special includes a drink and the house wines aren't bad. I opt the Shiraz. I'm gluten free and they can cater for me here both... More

Happened upon this incredible little restaurant while finishing a long walk around this area of Sydney. What a delightful little place and very personable and helpful staff. The meal was exquisite and served in true Italian style. A fantastic wine list and very affordable for Sydney. Two thumbs up!

Excellent entree, main & dessert! Staff very friendly and accomodating! Our little one got given some crayons to draw on the paper table cover. Lovely experience!

This is the ultimate family restaurant with its intimate space, very keenly priced pasta, pizza and main courses. It is full night after night which attests to its popularity but the friendly bond with the staff is evident on the first visit but you are remembered always when you return. The food is prepared with panache and always timely. There... More

This small restaurant is tucked away on Kent Street and is one of those rare places where you feel like you're back at grandma's table tucking into home cooked goodness. It's cosy, comfortable and friendly. The food is great, unpretentious abs wholesome. A rare treat in Sydney's overhyped dining scene.

We stumbled upon this restaurant trying to escape the Vivid crowds. So glad we did. Service was friendly and fast. I had the lamb shoulder and arrancini balls and both were top notch. My husband had the braised chicken and it was also scrumptious. Worth a visit.

This place is so cute and cosy, it's tucked away on Kent street but a close walk to circular quay. They have gluten free options available with no fuss and it is all really well priced. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal and wish we had room for dessert!
