After a warm welcome we were taken to our table and quickly settled in for a delicious , innovative Italian based lunch with a lot of attention to detail. Excellent service throughout the meal. Extensive wine list and a lovely pre lunch drink... More

The view,wines and service are fantastic as always.My wife loves the food but the last couple of visits have left me a little underwhelmed.But maybe I'm choosing wrongly,I'm not getting that WOW factor like I used to except for my dessert,WOW it was good!Next visit I'll choose more wisely and have two desserts!

My partner and I went to Pilu for dinner on my birthday. The restaurant overlooks Freshwater Beach so it is a good idea to go there for an early dinner or for lunch. Everything about the restaurant made it feel like a very special evening. The staff were welcoming and attentive throughout the meal. We were seated on the closed... More

Having travelled to Sardinia on my honeymoon and absolutely loving the authentic food and amazing wines I was so excited to learn of a Sardinian restaurant here in Sydney. We booked for our anniversary and decided on the tasting menu which was definitely the right choice. From start to finish the food brought back great memories of our trip to... More

One of the worst restaurant experiences I have ever had. The staff were incredibly arrogant and don't know the first thing about customer service. Why ever would you include a palate cleanser as a separate dish on a set menu. If any of these idiots had ever been to Sardinia or even anywhere near Europe they would know this is... More

I recently received a birthday invitation for a free 3 course meal at Pilu. We went along one evening and enjoyed a fabulous meal, served by very friendly staff with an amazing view of the ocean. Will definitely be back!

What a perfect way to spend a mid week lunch with my son who had some spare time off from his busy job. We had a table with a view of the beach although it wasn't one of the window tables parse it still had a fabulous view . We opted to have a special seasonal menu which my son... More

This is the place to eat at, to have fantastic friendly service and the location over looking the Pacific Ocean at Freshwater Beach is for the memories. We enjoyed a birthday Lunch here and will recommend it to everyone who is looking for a memorable time. Giovanni changes his menu monthly and it is based around seasonable foods. Try it.
