I am Horrified this place received 37 excellent votes - what is wrong with people - all I needed to order here was a spaghetti marinara (seafood pasta) to me all I needed to know. Not only is this menu and dishes lost in the 80's - that's not so bad but the pasta was something else. Absolutely no flavor... More

I had been here before on a previous trip to Sydney and had really enjoyed it, not just for its unique location under The Rocks but for the food and for the cool guys who sang while we ate. My second visit was not quite so great - the food wasn't as great as it had been the time before,... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant while walking around at The Rocks. Very good food. They are a very busy restaurant and it has outdoor courtyard seating. We very happy with the food however the service was a little lax. Found that to be true in most places. However we would return because the food was really good!

Tucked away in the Rocks, away from the tourists sits this little restaurant, I choose the sizzling prawns, that were not sizzling, the bruschetta should have been on toast, but was on lightly cooked bread, whatever the charms it has, the food was average and the price too high for what is on offer! Unlikely to return! The only decent... More

I stopped by here with some work colleagues for dinner and drinks after a crazy week at work. It was around 8:30pm and the restaurant was not very busy. We ordered drinks and overused the menu, then ordered food. A few minutes later we asked for another round of drinks only to be told "we don't want any trouble tonight,... More

Have been going here for years! One of my favourite romantic destinations in the rocks. The food is amazing and cooked old Italian style (the best part), the wine is tasty and the live music on the weekends really makes you feel like you are in Italy! The service is also on point with all waiters friendly and knowledgeable! Love... More

Big portions of Italian food. Lots of meat and the seafood dishes are generous, with excellent oysters. Desserts weren't so great, but ok. Service was efficient (a rarity around here) and fun. Really enjoyed the guitar/accordion duo who provided free entertainment. My seafood risotto was good, partner's veal too.

We found ourselves strolling through The Rocks, a lovely old neighborhood in Sydney, during a street fair, with tons and tons of people out and about. It was a miracle we were able to get a table on the terrace of this great restaurant. Long tables full of families, laughing and talking and handing babies around. The staff was professional...
