In Sydney for the weekend and visited a favourite haunt - La Spiaggia with my daughters and we weren't disappointed. The lasagne was to die for served with a scrumptious salad. My girls also had pasta dishes and thoroughly enjoyed them. A must visit when in Coogee!

As the name would suggest, this is an Italian restaurant. Wide range of options on the menu at a reasonable price for what you get. Definitely worth a visit.

If you're looking for a quality Italian dining experience in Coogee than La Spiaggia is a must visit. Warm, friendly atmosphere and staff are very attentive. Comprehensive menu with all your Italian favourites. Our group sampled a variety of dishes including pasta, pizza, seafood, chicken and veal. The Fettuccine Marinara was outstanding! Terrific service, and reasonably priced meals.

This is such a great restaurant for dinner with the family. The staff are always so polite and attentive. The pizza is great for the kids and they also have really good mains for adults and a good wine list. I always feel comfortable here and have never been turned away even when we haven't made a booking. Our favourite... More

Lovely night at this intimate Italian spot. The only disappointment was the bruschetta. The cured meats and homemade pastas were fresh and flavourful. The pasta sauces were all deep and rich and every one was unique. Friendly service.

Found this on TA and a good decision. They don't take bookings, so just turn up and wait for a table, which we got both times in minutes. First night was a little rushed but 2nd night we asked for time in between courses, which they did. Good service and very nice food. We enjoyed garlic prawns and calamari to... More

Hot summer's night, walked in with no reservation. Attentive and speedy service with a smile and a laugh. Generous on the Parmesan (would rate them 6 stars for this if we could) food was incredible and banter with the waiters not to be discounted. Topped off by a couple of gratuitous shots of limoncello at the end -- would go... More

Staying in Coogee

Neighborhood Profile
Very accessible by public transport, Coogee is the smaller, friendlier, more intimate version of Bondi Beach. Coogee is the only beach in the Eastern suburbs that does not have big waves, making it an excellent family beach. The Coogee Bay Hotel, located right across the beach, has one of the biggest beer gardens in Australia and plenty of entertainment every night of the week. Be on the lookout for celebrity footballers! A little further south is Wylie’s Baths, offering sweeping 180 degree views over the Pacific Ocean, and it is perfect for a swim or a few laps. Plenty of dining choices surround the beach, including the famous fish and chips.
