Address is actually Neutral Bay , not Cremorne, and can be difficult to find and park although it is on the main road. Often take guests here as it can be relied on for quality and service. Wonderful quality produce, a couple of favourites are scallops for entree and lamb or spatchcock for mains.

Dined here with family and it was amazing!! We had the crochette, pate and octopus for appetizer and then spatchcock, squid ink risotto and the house fish for main. Everything was incredible! Great food and excellent service!!

Since moving to the sunny coast, don't enjoy 16 as much as I'd like but make a beeline as often as possible. Menu is more simple than I remember but the food is just as good ; the scallop entree is superb as is the spatchcock with risotto main - rarely have dessert and never thought I would eat an... More

A friend recommended this restaurant and took us to it when we were recently in Sydney. The food was really outstanding and different. The hosts were lovely and friendly and provided a wonderful environment to talk and eat. It was a whole night out with the tasting platter. They provided just enough and not too much time between meals so... More

This is not hot and fashionable but you know it is always going to be wonderful. Only real problem is location; it is not in the heart of the Neutral Bay enclave and sometimes parking can be difficult but the effort is worth it. Some of the best Italian food in Sydney - the spitchcock with risotto is a knockout... More

A very pleasant restaurant with over attentive service - but in a kind and friendly way - just too many wine glass refills that interrupts a chat over dinner. A different menu that is hard to absorb as it is on a blackboard along the passage, however the food is very good. Printed menus would be helpful. Prices are at... More

We used to be regulars at this restaurant but haven't been in a while, not because it wasn't always very good but because a few new restaurants have opened a bit closer to home and we've got a bit lazy. However we went back to Restaurant 16 on Saturday night and it was even better than I remember. The service... More

Well I felt like Italian last night and wanted to take my wife out on a date. The two usual Italian restaurants in Mosman were either closed or we had been there last week so I read some reviews on Trip advisor and found Restaurant 16. What intrigued me was that there was a Japanese Chef running this Italian restaurant.... More

Restaurant 16 serves modern Italian food with an innovative Japanese twist. I have now dined here twice and thoroughly enjoyed both meals. The meatballs are delicious on the entree menu, I have also tried the salt and pepper squid which could have done with more seasoning and a little less time in the deep fryer. Overall a great experience, give... More

I have walked past this place many times and not really thought much as it looked so nondescript - was I wrong, the food is terrific, all seems to be blackboard specials and of high quality. Nice wine list too though we byo the wine..
