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... More

Stumbled on this restaurant when walking through the Rocks area. As it was full this evening we booked for the following night. It was again full the next night as well, the service was still good And my seafood marinara was one of the best I have ever had and full of prawns and squid. The 3 people I was... More

We had such a lovely lunch, that we came back for dinner. So handy to our hotel, as it was right behind the Holiday Inn at The Rocks. Everything we ate was amazing, and the staff were professional, warm and attentive.

We fancied an Italian and just used maps on iphone and take us to the nearest one from the Genmore pub, and this was it. We weren't disappointed, it is set in the rocks and away from the crowd. We were served promptly with the waiter explaining certain menu items to us. The spaghetti marinera was heavenly. We arrived quite... More

We was here 6 years ago, so we thought we drop by one evening, as I love italian food. We enjoyed last time we visited. So we sat outside, we was served quickly, got our drinks, waitress was nice and got what ever we ask for. But it seems a bit different to last time we visited. It didn't seem... More

We found this restaurant off the main drag of the Rocks well worth the find. Our meals were served quickly and were exceeding tastyand hearty .Our only complaint was the placement of the heating units.one of us was very hot and the other cold, we did move to another table. The live music was magic.

10 of us including 4 kids ate here and the staff were very accommodating. The live music created a lovely atmosphere for us to eat their amazing food. We had pasta as well as pizza and breads and would love to go back and try more of the things on the menu. As the wind was a little chilly they... More

Loved this little place, some of the most amazing food I've tasted, in particular the Nougat dessert. To make it more obvious: DO NOT GO WITHOUT TRYING THE NOUGAT DESSERT!!! We were here Saturday night and had a lovely harp/guitar duo playing right near our table, and what an excellent atmosphere this created! Delicious food and helpful staff, highly recommend!... More
