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. !

Visited Ironbark for the second time with a group of friends last night. Previous time we booked for 6:30 and it was awful with screaming, uncontrolled kids ruining our night. The meals were so good we tried again but booked an hour later hoping to enjoy our meal and some conversation, but alas we were still having to deal with... More

We often go here with friends who also have toddlers. At 5.30 pm on a weekend it's full of families. Great pizzas and super relaxed atmosphere. Our favourite is the calzone Italian and the meatballs starter

We live around the corner and thus are tempted to order take out every once in a while. Tonight's dinner was especially poor. Gluten free pizza base is horrible. Falls apart and is tasteless. We had 4 meatballs with very little sauce and a bit of pasta for $17 dollars and a few pieces of lettuce thrown in with some... More

Thanks for leaving a review ArtyB1210. We're sorry that our food didn't meet your expectations this time around. Our gluten free bases are made fresh daily & cooked in the woodfired pizza oven, and our customers are always raving about how good they are, but it sounds as though it just wasn't to your taste. I wish you had called... More

This is a great place! We've been there twice recently - once was a family dinner, and this weekend we were there for a birthday party with 20 friends and family. The pizzas are out of this world - delicious thin crusts, cooked to perfection in a wood fired pizza oven, an extensive pizza menu covering traditional and not so... More

Waited 1 hour for pizza on a Wednesday night. No water provided. One comment saying 'sorry - everyone asked for pizzas tonight'. Think the sign out the front says Pizza Restaurant.... As a fellow small business operator, you deserve to be told. How many pizza places are within 3 km of you?! Many! Manage expectations. Be consistent. Retain customers.

Love Ironbark! We are always made to feel welcome with our kids. They have a whole pile of colouring pages for the kids to chose from to keep them occupied until the pizzas are ready. Good service and great pizzas. And kids eat free each night from 5pm.
