Best Breakfast

This was within a few blocks from our hotel and they served a very good breakfast sandwich , just like we liked it with eggs, bacon and cheese. It's counter service and the coffee and prices also were great here too.

Went with friends to this little Italian 'mainstay' restaurant in Sydney and had an awesome time! The food was excellent and the customer service was phenomenal. Our hostess/server Aurora treated us like royalty. Super engaging, ensuring us of not only a great meal but a good time. Can't recommend this place highly enough. Check it out!

We just happened on this spot, while walking down Stanley looking for dinner. There where a few different restaurants to choose from. It was definitely a family style restaurant. It served very nice home style Italian food.( huge portions). With a simple wine list. They do offer byob with no corkage fee, if you like better wines go for it!... More

Bill and Toni's was a regular haunt of ours 20 years ago and we decided to visit with our children. The Italian menu is pretty much the same today- generous serves of pasta, great snitzel (or go the combo of both for $20). It all comes with fresh bread, a salad of 'lettuce' and of course the orange cordial. The... More

We are lunch there upstairs on the balcony. Friendly staff and view of street. Great for watching world go by. The food is so wonderful that we went back for dinner the next night and weren't disappointed again. Aurora Arista as the most gracious and friendly. She was the reason we went back the second time. At lunch she sat... More

I worked in William St for many years and took my lunch at Bill & Toni's most days. Always great coffee and friendly quick service. Always good to go back and still as solid as ever. Feel like part of the family. Lunch soups are a favorite. My children also love going.

Went for lunch recently and I think this place has been left behind by much better Italian restaurants in Sydney. The food was OK but the service was awful. I had to get up and go and ask for another glass of wine as the staff just ignored customers on the balcony. I wouldn't say it was reasonable either. There... More

The value for money you really get from this little spot in Sydney is great. To have the bread and minimal salad and that addictive orange cordial, it was a nice pleasure to visit Bill & Toni's. The staff were really friendly and the serving sizes were huge. As my first experience for a quick lunch, this place is a... More

We had to go back again when on holiday in Sydney (where my wife and I grew up) and everything was as it has been for decades, Fantastic value, including free orange cordial, plain fresh bread and minimal "lettuce and oil" salad. Our kids (now aged 9-14) always look forward to visiting Bill and Toni's, so perhaps yet another generation... More

I am bewildered by the favourable reviews of this restaurant. I went recently as part of a large group to celebrate something. Everything was poor - service, food, environment and general attitude. The word 'institution' is frequently used for this place - there is nothing to merit the word. Don't use valuable time and holiday budget on this restaurant.
