With inside and outside seating you can make the most of any weather. The setting, in The Rocks, added to the aThe staff were pleasant and service was prompt. The seafood risotto was huge and had plenty of seafood in it along with 4 huge oysters - well worth the price!

This restaurant has excellent service and authentic Italian menu items. The live entertainment is very lively and engaging. It's centrally located right in the middle of the Rocks district within walking distance of Circular Quay.

So we were craving for some Italiano and came across this restaurant while walking down The Rocks in the evening. Very good location. We were greeted well and seated right away by Miss Kalpana and then Mr. Sujal came in with a big smile on his face. What a start. He took his time to understand what we want to... More

Recently visited this resturant for dinner very average food we felt that we were pushed in and out too quick all in forty minutes probably so they can get more customers in. The staff were very pleasant and it was a nice spot to eat I won't be going back in a hurry.

Enjoyed an excellent meal with very entertaining staff. Menu was extensive but not expensive. Booking essential on the weekends.

Wow, what a great little place! Seafood risotto and veal scallopini were awesome. And live Italian music too! Will come again next time I'm in Sydney.

Had a great meal with our groupon. Tucked on a quiet street, this restaurant has a great Italian flavor. We had a street table and since it was a bit cool in the evening the gas heaters were a welcome hit. Would definitely hit this place again/

We stopped in here on a busy summer evening, hadn't booked but they found us a table. Staff were excellent, food was good, and the musicians (harp and guitar) were just right!

Purchased a Groupon deal for 6 people and were quite dissatisfied with the food. The pizza was so small, entree size at best. The award winning lasagne was a huge let down, it was no better than a supermarket lasagne. Service was average. We would not return.

Neighborhood Profile
The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and sailors from the old nation. As the oldest neighborhood in the city, the area's cobblestone streets host more than 100 heritage sites and buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney, Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi “ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.
