Very tasty Italian food in Smithfield

This is not what i expected in Smithfield. The food was very good as was the service. There were a lot of people so quite noisy but it suits that atmosphere. Parking was reasonably easy. Portions a bit small but coffee was good to finish with.

Read some good reviews about this place the other day and decided to try it for lunch. Ordered some entrees, some of them were nice, some - like the mozzarella di bufala - never showed up. Got myself a mushroom risotto for main - the taste was not really that bad, but the texture was all mushy. Halfway through my... More

We knew the price of food is not like a family restaurant here, and true enough there weren't any other children beside our own on that Saturday night that we dine in here. We did not mind the small portion size of the dish (Pasta, Fish and pork) because we are not big eater and we wanted to try their... More

Amazing food and staff were very professional and courteous. We had reservations and they were very accomodating for late comers n late orders. There are 2 sittings, 6pm and 8pm. We were booked for the 6pm sitting but ended up staying there well into to the second sitting without anyone saying anything to us about finishing up. The food was... More

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 lesson.. next time we go home and... 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
