Memorable lunch for all the right reasons

Who can resist home baked bread? Not me. The complimentary home baked bread was delightful. Fresh, moist and really good flavour. The veal was beautifully tender, well cooked and the mushroom sauce was excellent. The Parmesan and rocket salad was one of the better ones we have had. Friendly... read more

We used to eat here on a regular basis some years back. Nothing appears to have changed, the menu, the decor and great service. The menu is basic Italian and filling. It was a nostalgic visit and quite enjoyable.

If you want really ,really good italian visit this place have been going for a long time here and the food ,and service is perfect The restaurant is small and noisy just like you are in italy . Try the spaghetti marinaria and the octopus in red wine sauce,just divine .remember you have to book ,but it,s worth it.

The interior was quite nicely decorated with a rustic feel. The garlic bread was very nice. I had the lemon sole which was nice

Our favourite local restaurant with some real gems on the menu. Home style food with no short cuts. Friendly wait staff who take pride in their work.

Well, if you want an intimate 'hand holding' romantic dinner for two perhaps this isn't your place. I have eaten at Filicudi several times. The place is rustic (some may say old) but the feeling that you get when you walk in is warm and inviting. The place does get busy. You will need to book unless you get there... More

Had dinner with a friend & we were both disappointed with the menu, the service & the food. The menu is limited & uninspiring, we settled for the prawn cutlets for entree & I had the octopus in spicy tomato sauce for main. The prawns were no better than you can buy frozen in the supermarket with a boring salad... More

One of my old time favorites for good honest Italian fare.Its tucked away in an awful location but its homely and traditional. Chianti bottles dangle from above and some scenes of that little gem of an island Filicude adorn the walls. I can't beat the Fungi Trifolati. penne Granchi and the good old scaloppine favorites. They make a great pizza... More

Excellent service, atmosphere, staff and food and they've been around for a while. This isn't easy to do in Five Dock because of the high population of Italians. This doesn't make sense at first but Italian restaurants don't last that long in the area because of the old Italian cliche of, "my mum's a better cook than yours" but Filicudi... More
