Good choice at reasonable cost in the Rocks/Walsh Bay area of Sydney

Good atmosphere and not too pricey by Sydney standards. Dishes varied from good to excellent, and there was a pretty broad selection. Biggest minus was the slightly sparse seafood on the pasta with seafood entree, considering it was Sydney. The friendly and real Italian staff made it that much... read more

I have been here a number of times and always enjoyed the food and service; however today I went for lunch and order the lamb back strap (the special) the meat was tough and lacked flavour. Service was friendly and inviting. We will return but maybe stick to the pizza and pasta menu next time...

We enjoyed a delightful lunch after attending Love & Information (Sydney Theatre Company). We shared a Rosemary & garlic pizza. I followed up with the calamari fritti & hubby had the pumpkin, spinach & pine nut salad. We both enjoyed our meals. It was just the right amount of food & very flavoursome. The calamari was crisp on the outside,... More

We held our quarterly staff lunch (for 7) at Ventuno and unfortunately it did not hit the mark. The atmosphere was pleasant and it was warm and friendly but little to offer beyond that. We shared an entree which had a mixture of calamari, meatballs, eggplant all of which were ok without being exceptional. Everyone selected an individual main course... More

One of our favourite authentic Italian restaurants in Sydney. In a great historic and quiet part of town, but a short stroll to the main tourist precincts of the Rocks and Circular Quay. Would recommend to locals and tourists. My top picks are the arancini balls and the pizza.

Celebrating with family a large long table on the boardwalk was booked. Arriving very late after being caught in traffic, it was very relaxing to be sat overlooking the calming water. Sharing the meat antipasto platter which was a taste sensation. Whilst waiting for pasta and pizza to share with my husband. I was watching the surrounding tables receiving large... More
