"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.

This is a noisy, bustling, family restaurant with a delicious vongole and excellent pizzas. Eat in, or take away and sit by the beach.

Gelbison is a local favorite, and it's easy to understand why. Fresh ingredients make for delicious food. Combined with friendly, attentive service, no matter how busy they were, and you're in for a great dining experience. We waited on the sidewalk for about 20 minutes (as the host predicted) along with a growing number of other people. How they kept... More

You can tell from a block away this restaurant is a neighborhood favorite. Gelbison's is a little hole in the wall restaurant with small town local family style appeal and they are packed to the rafters every night. The food is family style Italian with all the greatest hits of this genre of cuisine on their very extensive menu. Don't... More
