We located this place on trip advisor and it looked promising. On arrival it was certainly the busiest venue on the square. There is no reservation slit is first in best dressed, and, unusually, not a BYO venue. Sadly things went downhill after that. The...More

If you see deep-pan or stuffed-crust as abominations then this place is for you! Yes it is more expensive than Domino's. But you get what you pay for. Real pizza, really good. Try it and enjoy the difference.

I'm italian and this pizzeria is the best I found in Sydney if you like the tiny italian pizzas. It's good to go with few people, not many, because the place is not so big!

Omg this is where you can get beautiful crispy thin pizza with quality ingredient toppings in atmospheric square off the main drag so almost a local secret (I lived across the road and became quite a regular!). Perfect for an al fresco dinner savouring good...More

Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney,
Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other
suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and
1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret
passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of
Australia, where gay and lesbian-friendly venues
feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning.
Vintage lovers flock to Crown Street, and small
