Ormeggio at The Spit specialises in contemporary Italian cuisine with a focus on Chef Alessandro's home region, Lombardia. The spectacular water views are matched by the sensational food and acclaimed wine list. Ormeggio at The Spit has Two Chef Hats in the SMH Good Food Guide and is in Gourmet Traveller's Top 100 Australian restaurants.For the full Ormeggio experience we highly recommend partaking of our degustation menu with matching wines. Right next door Ormeggio has a more casual sister site, "Chiosco By Ormeggio" - an Italian street food inspired, more casual diner. BYO and barefoot friendly, don't forget to visit Chiosco while in the area!

The water sparkles, fish swim by the adjacent pylons, pelicans and cormorants roost nearby and the luxury cruisers and kayaks all pass by. No this isn't a regional location but less than 15 minutes from downtown Sydney at "Ormeggio at the Spit". A wonderfully located restaurant on middle harbour in the marina complex. We had a lunch booking for five... More

We have dined here a couple of years ago and found it was great. BUT, we had lunch on New Years Day, in a group of 6, and were seriously unimpressed. Service was very good.

Dear "NorthernWanderer0", We appreciate your honest feedback but would have welcomed the opportunity to respond in person, on the day. New Years Day being a public holiday meant the menu was slightly more expensive than usual, as you can understand we're sure. We are very happy though that you appreciated the flavours and preparation. However, we are disappointed that you... More

We enjoyed the 8 course degustation menu for Sunday lunch today! All dishes and beverage pairings were exceptional! In particularly the crab, veal, agnolotti and lemon myrtle dishes. All of which were of a special standard and level of enjoyment!

We went her for a special lunch as it was our anniversary . Although the food was nice it just did not deliver the wow factor that we were hoping for. Expensive for size of dishes. Have been to much better restaurants in this price bracket. Would not return.

Ormeggio's is worth keeping for a special night out like an anniversary and trying the degustation menu with matching wines. We thoroughly enjoyed every dish especially the ling fish baccala, the sweetbread carnaroli risotto and the fascinating dessert with carrot, fennel seed and vinegar caramel.
