We did our nephew farewell in this restaurant and I cannot complaint about the food. It was delicious. Attention was good too. The only problem was that we brought our own cake to celebrate and serve with coffee or tea. We were charged for cutting and serving the cake.... $35 We learned our... read more

The best restaurant ever. Service is amazing the way they know everything about anything. They are on top of everything. The food was was out of this world. I ordered lamb shoulder. I could not believe how tasty it was and so tender cooked to perfection. Even simple vegetables taste that great I never wanted it to finish. I love... More

First time going to Candeloris at Smithfield. My husband, myself and two adult children decided to come here for a special family occasion. It was a great choice, we all enjoyed our meals, and our deserts were superb. All staff very friendly, lovely atmosphere. If there was one thing I had to say in the negative, it would be that...

Returned for the umpteenth time with some overseas guests. The food, service, ambience are all first class. In my belief there simply is no better italian in Sydney. If you have not been you must go.

Once again, the service and atmosphere were very impressive. The menu is extensive but not overwhelming. The quality of food is never in question. It is on the pricey side, I should point out. My only qualm with this visit was that they've removed my favourite dish (the soft-shelled crab entree) from the menu.. Why?!? :(

My wife and I had the worse Valentine's Day experience at Candelori's. It was a last minute decision to go here as my wife felt like having Italian for dinner. We got there and the first waiter came and set our expectations that it'll be difficult to find a table but he'll try his best. Less than a minute later,... More

I have been going to this restaurant for years - and have always gone back. I feel as though Candelori's deserves to be more 'in the spotlight' than on a main road in Smithfield. The menu is a bit pricey, however, you are definitely getting what you're paying for. The atmosphere is lovely and it's easy to hear what everyone... More

You cannot go wrong by dining here. The dishes are phenomonal, the fitout is something you'd expect in the luxurious Dubai and the service is out of this world. Would recommend/10

After reading some of the reviews on here, our group of 4 were more than impressed with every aspect of this restaurant. Even though the restaurant technically only opens at 6pm on a Saturday, we like to eat early, so they let us book for 5pm, so we had the whole place to ourselves. We really appreciated this; perhaps this... More

Catching up over a delicious meal on your day off is all we wanted. Flavours were delicious & the attention we received was well balanced. A restaurant of this calibre should be in more locations not just in the city, it was central for all to meet & it was a memorable experience. Thank you.
