Sydney at its best

A great place on a balmy evening. Right by the water with a great atmosphere and an authentic European flair.. Staff attentive and service was good. I loved the share platters for two. The drinks selection was was quite good. The Ionly issue for me was that whilst the pizza and pasta menu was... read more

We have been here very recently with a group of friends. I am very picky when it comes to selecting a restaurant I'd like to go to and did not chose this one myself as I would have thought it will be too touristy and quality wise not as good as I like it. We have been sitting outside, enjoying... More

This was recommended to us via a Gluten Free blog so we went with confidence. The gluten free pizza was great, loads of choice of toppings and really airy- not the usual burnt cardboard offering that celiac a get thrown at them. The views over the water accompanied by twinkly lights topped off a chilled out Sydney evening. Worth a... More

A modern Italian restaurant, with a varied menu and slick & attentive service, delivered with a smile. The pizzas were delicious and produced very quickly - along with a beautiful chilli infused oil if wanted (always the sign of a top pizzeria in my experience). The rest of the menu looked similarly good. The Santa Cristina Sangiovese Merlot recommended by... More

Good wine & food. Service not outstanding but ok. When I booked I mentioned that it was my husband's birthday. All other birthday guests were serenaded, not him. Didn't put tip on card because I always tip cash. Waiter thought I wasn't tipping, gave me my receipt, no "thank you" or "hope you enjoyed meal". I left cash tip on... More

Went here last time I visited Sydney. Enjoyed my meal and wine and so on my recent trip went again. We were not disappointed. The pizza dessert was amazing.

A great place to go with friends to enjoy authentic pizza, great antipasto and a few drinks while taking in a breathtaking view over the Hickson Road piers into Sydney's harbour.

We used to frequent Ventunos several years ago and loved it. However after a break, our recent visit was average. Staff are lovely and the dim light atmosphere is pleasant (although I recall it being more relaxed and casual, previously). The food was rather bland. I only experienced big flavours in the desserts, and not the mains. The service was... 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...
