Great location, service, menu, wine list, quality produce cooked to perfection. We went 3 times now and is always consistent. A must for lovers of authentic quality italian food.

“Brilliant, as always”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

I had lunch with a client on Wednesday and the food and service was as good as the other 3 or 4 times. Lino the owner wasn't there and you wouldn't have known. The staff looked after me as well as Lino has here, at L'incontro and Linos in North Sydney. Well done

“Good Italian if you're around Milsons Point”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Went there with a number of colleagues of my wife (who had been there before). They said the food was good. And they were not wrong.

Got the seafood frittura which I very much liked and then the Ribeye steak which was their special of the day. Cooked to specification (rare), healthy portion and not "fancied up". But good food and good taste (also can't understand how some people complain in the reviews below that the portions were small... Maybe they're used to American super-size me dishes...)

Now I do agree that the cost is disproportionate to the location/type of restaurant. But the service was friendly and the Tiramisu was worth it (had to order 2 of them, that's how much I liked it)

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Found the service very average, meals were disappointing - scallops were overcooked and smothered in breadcrumbs which completely ruined them, and as a lover of gnocchi, was very disappointed to be served a plate of "pomme noisettes" . If I wanted a plate of mashed potato I would have stayed at home! The meals were overpriced for the quantity of food served on the plate.
