Description: Ironbark has been serving up delicious, affordable, Italian-inspired food to Manly locals for almost two decades now, so you could say we know our stuff! Our tried and tested formula of simple, fresh food and a vibrant but laid-back atmosphere has built us a loyal local following. Our menu features delectable gourmet wood-fired pizzas, tasty pasta dishes and a tempting selection of seasonal and healthy options. Famous across the beaches for our gluten free options, we also have choices for our vegetarian, vegan and dairy-free friends too - all made from the freshest ingredients with a touch of Ironbark Italian flair! In summer enjoy chilling out under the lanterns in our beautiful garden, or in winter cosy up to our wood fired pizza oven; whatever the season the Ironbark experience always guarantees great food, an outstanding selection of Italian and Australian wines and above all a dash of fun and festivity. Whether it's an intimate dinner for two, a family affair or a large celebration with friends, we welcome groups however large; it all adds to the exuberant Italian ambience! And as a family run restaurant it stands to reason that we cater for even the tiniest of diners. Kids eat free* deals, a menu to please even the fussiest eaters and a good stash of colouring-in activities mean parents can kick back and relax. If eating in rather than out is more your thing we can deliver straight to your door; or call ahead and you can stop by and pick up your order. Find us on Pittwater Road; a short walk from Manly beach. On street parking is readily available. We advise booking, particularly for larger groups. We look forward to seeing you soon!

We stumbled upon this restaurant walking to our holiday rental. They had a sign out the front stating kids eat free from 5 to 6.30pm. With two little ones this was perfect for us so we booked. We were delighted to see a lot of other families at the restaurant and even more delighted to see and taste the great... More

We went for an early family dinner due to having a 2yr old. It was great they were open at 5:30 and kids eat free until 6:30, I think it was. The staff was very friendly and they provided crayons and pictures for our little one. They brought the kid's food out straight away, which was very on point. We... More

Go somewhere else if you're after value for money. Everything was very pricey for the standard. What im most disappointed about is the eftpos machine literally tricked me into paying a large tip. Make sure you read the screen carefully if you're paying by card.

I give this restauratn 3 stars, but that is not to say it is bad. Its the best Pizza I have had in Manly, but not the best I have ever had. We tried a couple of pizza places in Manly, and they have all been a bit bland compared to what we are used to in Melbourne. This pizza... More

Not to be critical but the service was a little slow on the night we visited, wasn't overly busy and not an issue as we had time to chat but if it was busy, we might still be waiting to order a drink. The pizza is to die for and the facility warm on a winters night.

We were at the Ironbark for dinner a couple of weeks ago. It is a nice and comfortable place and we ate a very good pizza. Ingredients were fresh and service was fast and very kind. We haven't tried the kitchen yet but next time we will for sure! Prices are fair and on the average.

What a fabulous day we all had at Ironbark last week. 70 people celebrating a 70 years young birthday boy's big day. Lots of fun - a very happy Hawaiian themed Italian lunch. Ryan and Emma and their staff kept the pizzas, pastas, salads coming out and we were served a delicious individual tiramisu to finish off. It was a... More
