Great atmosphere and wonderful staff, traditional family food and a great wine selection. Ideal for friends to catch up in a New York style environment. Love that Grosjean Pinot!

We were recommended this small bistro style restaurant by someone who lives near its location. What an excellent choice it was. It was full,even on a Wednesday in April....so you may be disappointed if you don't arrive early. Wait on the pavement for an available table...it's worth it. Excellent home cooked Italian classic food served with flair and efficiency. Great... More

Getting a table is difficult and it's absolutely crammed here but the food is just wonderful - fresh, brilliant and beautifully served. I have never been to Sydney and not eaten here. Again, it didn't disappoint. To me it's more of a lunch place so no idea what it's like for dinner, but I just love their food. The service... More

We wanted an early dinner from 5.30pm and Fratelli Paradiso was just the place. There are so many choices in Challis Street but so glad to have stopped here. The menu is small but each dish was wonderful. The wine list is extensive and the staff helped out with pairing our wine to the food choices. Well worth the effort... More

Apparently Fratelli Paradiso is a Potts Point institution. We dropped past late on a very busy Friday night and the staff happily found us a table without a reservation. The staff were great, very friendly, attentive, explained verything to us. The food was good without being great but overall a nice experience.

This restaurant was recommended to me by some locals, it is obviously an institution in Potts Point. I really enjoyed it - the food was delicious, it was a very casual and relaxed location and great on a warm day sitting outside on the pavement. Unlike some reviewers, I did not think it was pricy, the food was excellent and... More
