Went with my wife for our anniversary dinner and loves it. Amazing service and even better authentic Italian food. The pizza, pasta and gnocchi we had were amazing, finished with beautiful cheese and the atmosphere was just as a real Italian restaurant should be. We'll definitely be back, the best Italian I've had outside of Italy.

We have been here twice on holidays and the food is so delicious. Our whole family enjoyed the meal and we were contentedly full when finished. We will eat here again when we are next in Sydney.

The meal was very good in my opinion, the pizzas are stone ovened and that's the best pizzas you can come across, the setting inside is lovely, has that family feeling towards it. Some of the specials on their special board wasn't available and the wine list wasn't up to date but apart from that it was very nice

Another SYDNEY SECRET UNCOVERED. If you want an authentic taste of Italy right down to the Parma Slicer on display, continue on down Crown Street past the congested and over rated Stanley Street offerings, cross William Street and go to the bottom of the hill where you will find the PUNTINO TRATTORIA. If you time your meal around 8pm you... More

This is the first time I have been to an Italian restaurant outside of Italy, which felt like I was back in Italy! My Italian friend recommended this place & for an Italian to recommend an Italian I thought it must be good...it wasn't, it was fantastic! Authentic flavours & a lovely atmosphere. We started with the antipasta, followed by... More

The chef makes amazing pizza! We were two girls travelling and the host at the restaurant really caught our attention by complimenting us and flirting a bit! The pizza he recommended turned out to be one of the best I ve ever eaten. The service is very warm and makes you feel at home!
