We've been here on several occasions, usually to take advantage of the sophisticated European late-night ambiance and convenient location, at the city's edge. Something should have alerted me when I discovered we were almost alone upon arrival, for our reservation, at 9:30 pm. Although the atmosphere and wait staff were as expected, the place was badly let down by the... More

I when there with my mother for dinner. We both had a very enjoyable evening. I found the service to be very good. They where attentive when needed, the specials where explained very clearly. It is not a large restaurant with a cosy atmosphere.

On the spur of the moment we reserved a table here on a Friday night. Helpful staff took us into the low lit restaurant and were attentive without being intrusive throughout the meal. Substantial wine list and a classic italian food list. The Prawn Spaghetti will not disappoint and the affogato was made with quality beans. Recommend for couples on... More

We ate at Bambini Trust on our first night in Australia, a little bit grubby, and with a small child in two (who fell asleep at the table). Bambini is not really a family restaurant -- luckily we were early, but all the other diners looked as if they had come from work or were meeting friends for a nice... More

Great small french inspired restaurant in the CBD. small wine list, but good choices. Service is first class. Ambience is private, lighting appropriately dim. You need to book.

I arrived at the Sheraton on the Park in Sydney on Saturday night without a dinner reservation. While the hotel did accommodate our table selection, I found the food to be just OK, certainly not as "spectacular" as the prices would indicate it would be. I ordered lamb. It took way too long to get to us after a side... More

Dinner this week at Bambini Trust - just great. Good (not too extensive) menu, service great, food excellent, very good wine list, and terrific ambience. Definitely worth a visit.

We have been a few times to this fabulous restaurant when in Sydney and each time has been a treat. The food and wine are fabulous but so too are the staff.
