“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

I have been to Pendolino on a number of occasions and without fail i have had a great, no a stunning meal.

I have to rate the bean salad as one of the best dishes ever and the spaghetti with Barramundi, prawns and chili as truly memorable.

The wine list is great and the sommelier is always ready to assist with great wine choices. I love the place.

“Great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Really enjoyed dinner at this restaurant. The meal started with some complimentary bread and the house label olive oil which is for sale. Delicious Italian food and an extensive wine list with many imported wines. The restaurant is dimly lit which gives it a special occasion feel. There were several vegetarian options on the menu which changes regularly. I would dine here again!

“We were very impressed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

Service was good, food was excellent. We found it comfortable and relaxing. The wine ( like most places in Oz) was expensive and signage from the street could be better ( it was non- existent). The cost ratings need to be significantly increased. Starters alone cost AUD 20 each. I'd certainly go again, but ease up on the wine.

“Average Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

It's in a beautiful building but twice i have been and found the pasta to be nothing special. It's very dark and quite noisey inside - not ideal for corporate clients.

“Superb!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Oysters, pasta, wine all excellent at not a very crazy expensive price.
The tables were a little squashed together though. Not a huge problem. Will certainly be back again and would recommend it.
