“Great pasta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Fantastic restaurant with excellent wine list. Ravioli in burnt butter sauce is to die for, and worth a visit for this alone. Not cheap but not overly expensive for Sydney and certainly worth the money. Quality service and excellent food made for a great dining experience

“Great meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Our group of 5 has a great classy evening meal at this restaurant in September.
Sitting inside we all had 3 courses served with prompt but not intrusive attention.

The desserts were finished with much oohing and aahing as they were all delightful.

Overall the serves were appropriate and the flavours were complimentary and surprisingly distinctive but subtle, including the beef carpaccio with truffle infused oil.

The average cost was about $170 per head which included pre dinner drinks, 3 courses and wines during the meal - we thought that, although expensive, the total experience was value.

We would certainly enjoy this restaurant again ( this was our second meal there - the first one was a lunch two years ago) for a special occasion that will fulfill high expectations.

“Always good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

I have dined at Pendolino on numerous occasions including private dinners , meeting friends and impressing a new clients. Pendolino is a place that fits every occasion. The staff are friendly and always professional but what keep me coming back is the food is consistently excellent. Interesting, fresh and seasonal and beautifully prepared and presented.

“Salty dish swimming in butter”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

In Sydney on business travelling in my own. Chose this place from the choices of restaurants around me using the trip advisor app. Nice atmosphere, service was good...a bit too swift. I had the seafood pasta and other than it tasted too salty and it was swimming in melted butter, it was quite a nice dish.

“Great food, efficient service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Ate here on my own on a business trip to Sydney. The hotel restaurant where I was staying looked dismal and somehow I ended up here and was glad I did. The service was efficient and the food amazing. I had the bone marrow pasta and that was complimented by a nice glass of sangiovese recommended by the sommelier. The granita desert sounded unusual but was a really great way to end the meal.
