I have been here looking for a slice of real Naples and I have to admit that I found it! I moved in Sydney just few months ago but I was worried thinking that I won't ever eat a proper pizza (I am from Naples and I want it to be done properly)! My colleague suggested me this place and... More

A few blocks from Oxford street, in quiet residential area (Darlinghurst) at little square besides two other bars/restaurants. Packed with locals, who appreciate the Italian food. Little cramped and chaotic, but friendly service (also very Italian!). Sit outside under plastic "marquise" with terrace heaters. Simple plastic white chairs and short menu. Italian style pizza's baked in wood oven, just behind... More

Had dinner with another family recently at the Zetland branch and what a great time that was. The mozzarella bar was terrific, great cheese, even better small plate selections . The ingredients were fresh; the service impeccable ; the wine list more than adequate . We had pizzas and pasta too, all specials for that Sunday. All in all a... More

The pizza here is amazing! I have never tried 'bianco pizza' before but I can vouch that it is stunning! I had the truffle pizza with mushrooms and it was divine, I ate the whole thing till the last bit of crust! The service was great - proper Italian waiters, very friendly and attentive! Brilliant all round!

Went there with 5 other friends for a Friday night out. It seems to be a popular place. The tables and chairs are so closely arranged, I spent the entire dinner time getting up to allow people sit behind me and waiters to pass through. I am only 50kg, so imaging how closely packed the tables are. With such capacity,... More

Lucio's has the best pizzas in Sydney. This is my go-to joint (approx 1-2 times a fortnight). The staff are very polite and helpful, the only thing missing is a better atmosphere.

Good pizzeria in a very nice location, with a surprisingly quiet outdoor area. I was soooooo happy when the menu came and I found Panzerotti, Rice arancini and Potato croquette, as in a authentic Neapolitan pizzeria (FYI in italy we don't have fried calamari or garlic bread for entrees, but Australians think we love it, go figure!). Pizza was very... More

Staying in Darlinghurst

Neighborhood Profile
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 designer boutiques can be found along Victoria and Bourke Streets. Dining in Darlinghurst is a gastronomic adventure. Food from all over the world is on the menu, from American ribs to tapas, sushi to gelato and every ethnicity in between.
