This is a pleasant restaurant which for sydney has reasonably priced food. The service was good. It has both indoor and outdoor seating in a central location.

Have had a meal in this restaurant before and was happy then so I decided to have another meal here. It was a Saturday evening and the restaurant was about 75% full. I figured that the wait staff are paid on how amy tables they ruth over because I wasn't even offered dessert or coffee. When I went to pay... More

sydney restaurants can be very pricey but Caminetto is excellent and reasonable. We enjoyed Fried zucchini flowers similar to those we have had in Rome. The live music and outdoor seating Is comfortable and inviting.

We had dinner here one evening during a visit to Sydney and thought it was going to be really authentic Italian food. It was anything but. I thought the service was very basic, the waitress didn't really seem to care, the water brought to our table was just tap water. We ordered a meat lasagne and a vegetarian lasagne which... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant in the Rocks thinking it looked good. It was awful...service was bad, very slow. Bright fluorescent lights shunning right in our eyes, waited forever for our wine (food was delivered first)....just not fine dining in the least. Waitresses were very untrained and didnt even acknowledge requests....saw blatant eye rolls to one another when we requested... More

Fantastic wait staff coupled with an equally fantastic yet simple menu all in historic surrounds. I love when the wait staff are sufficiently attentive yet not hovering. I love when the menu is not daunting. I love when the atmosphere is just right on a cool evening in Sydney and you get to sit outside in the historic Rocks area... More

I have been dining at Caminetto's now for more than 10 years and I never cease to enjoy the whole dining experience with them. Great bruschetta, pizza (mexicana), and a wonderful fettucini pasta, followed by a delicious cheesecake. Another memorable occasion and I look forward to my next visit.
