Great Italian restaurant on Hickson Road

Went here for dinner with friends on the weekend and we were quite impressed. Service was prompt and quite friendly, the menu was wide ranging, the wine list was (predictably) dominated by Italian wines but a couple of locals were there as well, and the food was very tasty. It was a little cool... read more

Arrived for dinner a bit after 6 before walking around to see Vivid. Have been before many times but lately about a year ago and dining friends are regulars. Place was buzzing and fairly busy and we were happy to be in that atmosphere. All went down hill from there - had to just about flag down 2 waitresses to... More

Arrived on Vivid light display night and every restaurant was packed. We were offered a couch to wait on, chatted to other diners and before long, got a table inside. magic pizzas shared around. Beautiful experience despite the pressure the staff were under. Lovely location on the harbour's edge, Ready to go back anytime!

Just went for a wine and coffee. Wasn't able to sit outside on a beautiful day and enjoy a glass of wine without ordering food. Do not like this at all.

Yummy Italian food with a beautiful view. I ended up spending too much money, but the food and the service is good.

It's one of my 3 favorite Italian restaurants in Sydney. Best is to get a table outside by the sea and the wharfs, with a really nice atmosphere by night in particular. The food is always nice and fresh. The pizza is perfect: thin and crusty and tasty with nice ingredients. Large and fresh garden salad. Very caring service. Large... More

I went to Ventuno for a business dinner. The restaurant is in a nice location beside the harbour and has a nice ambience inside. The service was good and efficient. The menu was OK but a bit limited in my opinion. We started with bread. I had the Spaghetti Pescatora for main course and the Zuppetta Di Fragole e Mango... More

No gourmet prizes here but very good simple Italian, friendly service, reasonable value and a great view over the harbour for pre-theatre drink or bite.
