Description: Ironbark has been serving up delicious, affordable, Italian-inspired food...
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. !

We have ordered 2 pizzas to be delivered on a Saturday night. The waiting time was approx one hour, understandable considering it was the weekend and they arrived on time. One pizza though was wrong! So my boyfriend started eating his pizza while I had to wait almost half an hour for them to deliver the right pizza. Of course... More

Dear Barbara, Thanks for taking the time to give us your thoughts. Yes, the pizza had cheese when you had asked for no cheese which we apologise for. Once this was picked up on by the delivery driver she called in to the restaurant, had the correct pizza made, picked it up and dropped it off all within 15-20 minutes.... More

Well regarded local eatery. Always friendly and welcoming. Food is good but not going to blow you're mind. With that said it is a good place to stop of you want a more traditional style pizza.

It was a last minute booking on a busy Saturday night. Although the restaurant was full, staff was very fast and attentive. Food was excellent as always. Pizza thin (as I like it) and full of flavors. My partner ordered pizza but without this and that and this instead of that. No problem whatsoever. Tiramisu was a good finish to... More

There are only a few restaurants in this area of Manly and I am going to try them all. IronBark did not disappoint. The food was delicious, reasonably priced, service was quick plus we had a discount voucher. For wine we brought our own; there is a bottle shop just down the street. Seating is semi-outside so on a balmy... More

What a refreshing welcome to an unexpectedly pleasant evening at Ironbark Pizza Restaurant in Manly. First the atmosphere has an Italian look with several different areas to sit, inside and outside, quiet or noisy. Next a cool Italian beer was soon in my hand and glass of wine for my wife. The menu not only had a range of gourmet... More

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.
