It was that good. Womderful pasta and probably the best veal we've ever had. Good & frindly service. For a nice table for two ask for #511.

This was our first stop after arriving in Sydney. Historic location in the Rocks. Service was quick and attentive. Beers to our tables without delay. Food was hot and good. Next time I will get something with pasta as the scent of what the folks had at the next table next to me still lingers. I think most would enjoy... More

Located in a fairly quiet location in an area that can be extremely busy. Sometimes it is best to look what the daily special is because it might be fresher than come of the other things fixed on the menu.

Valentine's dinner was nice, live music is great, food was generous and price was fine. The table arrangement is cheap (different types of tables, cooler/fridge right next to our table) and the service needs a lot of improvement. We went back with the whole family last weekend but the service was terrible.......the guys taking the bookings was a bit rude... More

It's in The Rocks which could make it expensive for not much. The food was good, the service better, the plonk house wine just fine, and the bill reasonable when you take the what and where into account. Perfect for NA tourists from a service and food standpoint.

Went for an authentic Italian. Calamari overpriced and served with master food sachets of dressing and sauce. U would think the chef would know how to make these. We did comment on that and the waiter and the chef just said something rude then laughed. Pasta shop bought. Marinara tasteless. One good thing was the veal.

Just what we fancied. Very quick friendly service, excellent pasta and good wine in a lovely setting. Reminded me very much of past family holidays in Italy hard to imagine we were sitting out in February on the other side of the world.

if this is an Italian restaurant McDonalds would get a Michelin star. the plate came with a huge mountain of potato chips and about 8 soggy breaded prawns. the entire plate had been deep fried which again has as much to do with Italian food as McD with Michelin. Salad didn't seem to have any dressing at all. both ,... More
