Lovely atmosphere with very high ceilings and fantastic ceiling fans, plus air-con, all on a warm day. Minimalist white walls and gorgeous dark carpet - high ceilings and fabulous fans with the air con made it very comfortable on a warm day. Met by great host/waiter who was wonderfully professional - everything arrived as it should, he was a great... More

Due to the glowing reviews on TA, this restaurant has been on the list for sometime, we finally visited this week on Wednesday. Some of the dishes were a bit hit and miss. Between the four us for entrees we ordered, the Polipo di Amabile and the octopus was very tender, the Vitello Tonnato was a winner, the Salmone Affumicato... More

We went there to celebrate the engagement of our friends with a group of 10. Loved the gnocchi I ordered and hubby loved the penne ragu. Service was great and the decor was amazing.

My entree pasta dish was so generous that I was immediately pleased that I... More

I pass this restaurrant daily, twice as a matter of fact, seeing it reminded me to visit, so this year's Christmas lunch was here. One thing is the restaurant stayed the same, food, service, menu, so if you are looking for consistency, Ambrosini is it. The Classic dishes, duck, pasta, garlic prawns,all as good as it always is. Take my... More

This is a small restaurant with a big taste of Italy. From the penne pollo con funghi entre, to the barramundi second plate and then the Chocolato dessert, this meal was a treat for the tongue. Service was very professional. Would have to list it as, now, one of my favourite places.

Very happy with this place, food and wine! We didnt make a booking on that day but they fit us in. The entree we had lamb brain and octopus. It was so delicate and well presented. Wide range of wine and beer fron Italy to choose from. Overall... we will come back!
