A genuine gem

Yep, agree with the reviewer who thought it was a little piece of Italy. The food was amazing and we went a couple a times because the kids insisted.

Found this little gem near our hotel and recommend this friendly neighbourhood restaurant. The three of us sat outside for dinner, enjoying bottles of the house wine, garlic prawns in tomato sauce, buffalo mozzarella and tomato salad, and a diavola pizza. Service was great - not pushy and available when you wanted it. We will be back to try the... More

I took my Fiancé here for a birthday dinner. My fiancé loves the old rustic look with the relaxed atmosphere environment. As you walk in, the restaurant is converted to look like you have walked in into a family owned restaurant in Italy. Even the owners greet you in Italian, but don't worry, they do speak very clear English but... More

Took my mum and partner here for an evening away from the home kitchen. You could fly to Italy and back in the amount of time these guys took to make our pizzas. Service was beyond poor. Pizza was so so. The host was busy hanging out with his buddies at their table. After our order arrived, no one came... More

...perhaps the best "authentic" Italian Cafe .. not far from "Little Italy" at the buzzing Stanley street nearby.. We started with fabulous bruschetta and share the perfect pizza... Pastas are good too... Spare some time though and enjoy the moments here ...

This is one of my favourite Italian restaurants in Sydney. Firstly, you must start with fresh buffalo mozzarella or burrata if they have it - it is so fresh and creamy you won't believe it. I know the pizzas get a lot of hype here but I'll be honest and say I think the pasta is better. The maccheroni (italian... More

The food was fabulous. The staff were very friendly.. The only problem was that we sat upstairs and it was very noisy as there was a large table.

On a wet and wild Sydney night it was a pleasure to walk into this inviting local restaurant. We were staying at a hotel just up the road and happened upon this place earlier in the day. We weren't very hungry so couldn't really do justice to the restaurant but ordered bruschetta and a pizza to share. Both were great... More

Very good food - delicious hand rolled pasta and the range of mozzarella are a must. Service quick, understated and friendly. Excellent venue for a celebration dinner with friends.
