Delicious

My family and I came to Sydney for almost a week and visited twice. It was delicious food and fairly priced. The first night there was some lovely singing from a pair, one with a guitar and another with an accordion. You could choose from a small or large portion depending on your hunger, which... read more

Me and my boyfriend visited here last week. The place seemed nice but when we entered a lady just pointed to a table in the corner not addressing us at all in any friendly manner. She then took ages to take our order as she was to busy gossiping with another staff member. After waiting for an hour for two... More

This restaurant was recommended by a bellman at my hotel. I checked the reviews on Trip Advisor, which were mixed. My wife and I decided to give it a try, and we weren't disappointed. I started with a beautiful, tasty garden salad. My wife decided to try the Lasagne and I tried a dish I had never had before, Veal... More

The food at this restaurant is always tasty. I've had the lasagne and spaghetti marinara and both were great. Nice location in The Rocks area of Sydney.

Not great not bad. I got the spaghetti bolognese it was pretty good. The green salad is subpar. Overall it's not bad but you could probably find somewhere better to go

We had a table of 20 people. The restaurant was just over 50% full. Even at this ratio it took over 20 mins to get a drink, so we were all waiting for at least 30 minutes from time of entry. Too slow. The wood fired pizzas were all tasty and rated the most popular amongst us. The pasta dishes... More

we have walked around the rocks many times but not ventured from the main strip of George St. Recently we went along one of the backstreets whilst at Vivid and spotted Caminetto. Last week we were looking for somewhere to eat and headed down. It was pretty cold but the heaters work well so we sat outside. Friendly staff, excellent... More

What a wonderful meal with large proportions. We did order the large portions so those who would want a smaller portion on forced to buy a higher priced larger portion. We ate all of ours so the large portions were fine for us. We also ate dessert which provided large pieces of cheese cake and a tort. Heaters worked well... More

We were with a group of 7. The cold cuts on the antipasto platter were frozen. When feedback was provided to the waiter he just smiled. The veal was very average. A couple of the guys on the table enjoyed the pizza. Unfortunately this has to be my worst dining experience in Sydney over the years.

Good food, large portions, live music. My son had the Hawaiian pizza - thin crust and smokiness of real wood fire oven. Nothing fancy but we had a great time. Recommended.
