The pasta and wine was delicious. Service excellent. A seat by the rock is just beautiful at night. We have been a few times before and each time we come away more than satisfied. Love the touch of the live music.

I came with a friend and we both ordered large pasta dishes. The seafood marinara and carbonara were filling and exactly what we were looking for. The sangria was delicious but could have used a few ice cubes as it was a very hot day. The waitress was hilarious! She was so energetic and helpful. We could not stop laughing.

not much to say about this place really - the food was of really poor quality, the staff weren't particularly friendly or helpful. The restaurant is in a nice location.

Poor food, poor service - great location! I agree with the review titled Tourist Trap - that is exactly what it is!

This restaurant is the worst tourist trap of Sydney. The veggie Lasagne of my wife was tasteless and I could have had a better frozen Pizza for 24 bucks. This place is a shame and an insult for the italian cusine. Do yourself a favor and avoid this place.

My husband, daughter and myself visited this restaurant for lunch and were very unimpressed! The food was average at best! I ordered a prawn dish that came out as a few prawns in breadcrumbs with a couple of lettuce leaves and a little squeeze pack of tomato sauce and tartare. Very expensive food that you would not be happy getting... More

Due to its location, I had expected Caminetto to be a bit of a tourist trap. Yes, it was full of tourists. However, we had a very pleasant meal with good service. And good service is a treasured commodity in Sydney! The day was warm and sunny. We sat outside in the shade, and were very comfortable. Although they were... More

Then there was the food which... More
