The best Italian in the Eastern Suburbs

I have been going here for over 20 years and because it has been here so long speaks volumes. I love the Zuppa di Cozzi (mussels). I wish I had gone here last night instead of going to that pretentious North Bondi Fish where I had one of the worst dining experiences ever. Beware of the Bondi... read more

Food was very good, large portion sizes and taste was excellent. I enjoyed a seafood spaghetti which was fresh and perfectly cooked. The service is quick and efficient; the restaurant also runs a takeaway service, so there may be people just standing around waiting for food in the restaurant. I'd definitely recommend for those looking for a lovely Italian meal.

This is casual Italian but the quality and the taste make it a favourite. The Pizza's are very good, the linguine with scampi is awesome and the mussels in spicy tomato fantastic. One criticism - the bread is very average and lets done the food you want to dunk it in. Always busy and noisy but that is part of... More

Delicious, traditional Italian food at very reasonable prices. Great pizza and mussels. A little crowded and noisy but that adds to the charm.

Lived next door to this place for over 6 months. It was always busy and more often from locals than just the tourists. I regularly waited half an hour for a table but if you can't wait that long then they also do take away. BYO. Is also great but would love it even more if they offered wine coolers.... More

"Gelbo's" as it is know to the locals. A sigh of relief this local has its doors open amidst the moving feast of Bondi Beach tourist haunts, the high rents and their high turnover of chefs and staff. Gelbison's sits unpretentiously at the end of Lamrock Ave. Its kitchen keeps their salad dressing a secret (damn). It is something that... More

This place is so great for authentic and delicious Italian food. Right across from bondi beach it is perfectly located! My husband loves their pizzas and I can honestly say this is my favourite place to get pasta in Sydney! Casual and relaxed atmosphere, great for friends, families and couples.
