The food is fresh and inventive with some lovely flavours. As a result of good ingredients, and high staff levels, the price is not cheap. Wine tasting is encouraged before purchase which I like. Then, the wine probably has a 4/500 % mark up making...More

This is the 3rd time we've visited Berta and it doesn't disappoint. The menu changes constantly to reflect the season and best available produce ... modAus/Italian. Google told us Berta existed and like everyone else on the first visit we walked up and down the...More

This place is one of those you should keep to yourself. But really good food and a noisy but vibrant ambience combined with great service must be outed, I'm afraid. The four of us shared the banquet which, at $75 a head represents very good...More

Modern Australian can be a mixed bag. Berta strikes the right note and it has now been added to my list of places to go back to. Everything we had was delicious, comforting yet light. An extensive wine list kept us happy too. The service...More

We had dinner at Berta tonight and it was so good! Friends have recommended this place but we didn't know what to expect. Deliciously different Italian food. Everything we ordered did not disappoint. The most memorable dishes were the sausages, fried eggs with polenta, tagliatelle...More

We came to this tiny, cosy restaurant for Friday lunch and went for the banquet option. What a wonderful experience. Great food, friendly service, nice range of wines. I can't wait to return.

Love the food at this place which seems to have a seasonal menu. I had the black brook trout with popping roe, fennel and radish. My wife had the herb crusted sardines which I tried and was also delicious.

It's a little hard to find this hidden jem on the dark narrow alley of Berta Street. I managed to find the small glass door to this restaurant located between a big main building door and the restaurant façade which was all dark covered. The...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
