Regular for 25+ years.. No Fuss and no long wait or attitude

...and I think there would be plenty of customers with an equal or longer habit of dropping in for a consistently tasty no nonsense meal served in quicktime from a *Greatest Hits* menu of proven Winners. Im a sucker for the Schnitzel with Cheese, which comes with a iceberg lettuce side with a... read more

It seemed all the food was microwaved. The chicken parm was lava hot and totally dried out. When they asked if we wanted Parmesan cheese, I had no idea it would be that powdered, weird, synthetic "cheese". The lasagna was undercooked such that the noodles were doughy and raw in the middle. It was just awful food. The people seemed... More

Been coming here for at least 30 years (when it was just a small room) and still enjoy the food. Still BYO if you want and is a Sydney institution. It may not be as flash as newer places as still has a blackboard menu and free orange cordial but this is what we come for - simple, good value... More

Dropped in today for a quick bowl of minestrone soup. Service was awful - first told after we had paid that they had no soup - when we asked for a refund they said they had soup. Waited 30 minutes - the soup arrived bland and watery with a roll that looked as it should have been used for a... More

I have been to Bill and Toni's many many times over the years. It has been a staple on Stanley Street, East Sydney for nearly 20 years. The trick is not to go with any expectations at all. Just go and know you will get a big honest plate of food. The wait staff are genuine and the vibe is... More

We were searching for a local restaurant near our hotel (Hotel Stellar) and after discovering our intended location was closed for renovations, we noticed a large crowd of people on a side street going in and out of this little restaurant. We decided that crowds usually don't eat at the bad places, so we gave it a try. Great decision.... More

I've eaten at Bill and Toni twice, and will be going back. Good Italian food at very good prices and a friendly atmosphere. Calves liver with onion is excellent, as are the lamb shanks and meatballs (I tried my friends'). Looking forward to trying the osso buco next trip (if I can go past the calves liver).

We were looking for a place to eat near our hotel, and this didn't show up in any of our searches (tripadvisor included). We had found another place we wanted to try, but when we got there, we found it was closed for renovations, so we walked a couple blocks further down the road to where we knew there were... More

Bill and Toni's has been around forever. My parents used to go on dates here I believe, it's that place on Stanley that you can rely on to always be yummy, always have good friendly service, and enjoy a relaxed very low key meal. Their simple Italian menu is what I love about the place, it's reliable, yet everytime I... More

this restaurant is a sydney institution, anyone who disagrees with that statement doesn't understand what it is all about! three things to understand before going: IT IS NOT ABOUT GOURMET FOOD IT IS NOT ABOUT FINE WINE IT IS NOT ABOUT BEING QUIET. you will most likely wait in line for a table, you will have vinegar on your salad,...
