Good solid Italian food with Sicilian influence. Pure 1960s ambiance with raffia-wrapped Chianti bottles hanging from the ceiling. The food tasted good, the fish and veggies were ever-so-slightly overcooked. The sauces hearty, not delicate. The $39 bottle of Sicilian wine was ordinary. Service was friendly and accommodating. Very noisy when full.

Forget Leichhardt - if you truly want to experience fantastic Italian food, head just down the road to Five Dock. Filicudi has been there for years and is a gem of a restaurant. Amazing home-style Italian cooking, pared with friendly and authentic service. Make sure you order a Bianco garlic pizza, penne granchi with crab and a mascarpone for dessert.

I have been going to Filicudi for a few years now and I have always found the food great. If you want a really fabulous spaghetti marinara, this is the place to go. Not only the spaghetti marinara, all the other dishes are superb as well. The wine list is one of the best I have encountered; top quality local... More

Being Italian, I have high standards for Italian food, and always compare with what mum makes. This restaurant has food cooked in an authentic Italian way which is so close to mama's food I could swear she was in the kitchen! The pasta is perfect, al dente, and exquisite sauces with perfect flavour. The meat and fish main courses, are... More

Friendly staff serving good quality Italian. Plenty of competition in the area but it stands up ok. Serving sizes are satisfying. Worth a visit.

Everything you could ever ask for in an Italian restaurant. We started with the perfect margarita pizza, which arrived at our table within 10 minutes of our order. Next came the steak dishes, cooked to perfection and drowning in magnificently flavoured sauces. We had chips and vegetables as sides and were quick to sample each others sauces with the crispy,...

We walked into an atractive place with straw chianti bottles hanging from the ceiling - remember them. We were taken by our friends who eat there regullarly and I understand why. It is BYO and the specials were numerous and related to in season produce. The food is wonderfully genuine italian cooking.

We needed a restaurant between the hills and the shire so we chose Filicudi @ Five Dock. The service was great, whilst not the cheapest the food was great. Try the whitebait fritters and either the spaghetti marinara- both worth raving about. Deserts great & coffees great. Would recommend.

Based on the reviews we decided to book a spot at this restaurant mid week, just in case. I'm glad we did. The place is popular and deserves to be. The place is similar to the experience we had in Italy. Busy, no nonsense and tasty Italian fare. For those who read our reviews you know that we tell it... More

We chose this place today for celebrating our anniversary, as friend's Italian chef husband suggested. We ordered pasta pizza and steak and of course the desert, all dishes are good sized and tasted very delicious like what most of royal customers described " the food is like Italian mama's cooking". Although I've never been Italy so far but I guess... More
