I had the lamb cutlets and it was simply yummy! Nicely charred and the taste was awesome. The rest had pasta which was generously sized and overall it was a good meal.

It's been a while since we've last eaten at Candelori's . It has since been renovated, quite nicely. Situated on The Horsley Drive in Smithfield, it's relatively easy to get to. Unbeknownst to us, there's parking in the back. Candelori's also has a happening takeaway business. My 2 little annoyances were the chill coming from the entrance/ exit to the... More

This restaurant is fantastic - it was fully booked the night I went for my mums birthday and the service and food was impeccable- couldn't fault it at all! The cocktails were funky and fresh and there was just so much flavour! Mum was over the moon when we arrived as she has been wanting to dine here for years,... More

I had been a few years ago but this place has had a renovation and looks amazing now. Service was great with good recommendations and friendly service. Their suckling pig croquettes were great, full of flavour. We made a custom anti pasto board, which arrived on two boards which was a little odd, but not a problem. We had the... More

While the food was faultless, and service pleasant, the under handed overcharging was truly and eye opener. If you are going to charge loyal customers $9 per bottle of water perhaps you should not take it upon yourselves to replenish said water every 5 minutes, and especially not remove half empty bottles and replace them with full ones without asking...

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Sydney. It's out in the suburbs and if you've never been to Smithfield before you may be very sceptical. But don't fear, this place is worth the journey. Fantastic Italian food in a beautiful restaurant. It has a great open plan kitchen and it's always busy. Make sure you book for weekends... More

I have been hearing about Candelori's for some time, I was impressed with the fitout, the menu was well thought out with some good produce on offer. Wine list was extensive. pizza was very good, the base interestingly different & very well done. Pasta with truffles was unique and sourced truffles from the Canberra region. Beers form northern Italy were... More

When you step inside, you expect you're somewhere in the CBD; the decor is extremely classy and modern! The vibe is busy, but well organised. Everyone is eating, drinking and having a great time. We ordered an entree; a personalised charcuterie board with cured meats, olives and breads! Our mains took a little while to come out but we were... More

What I loved about this place was that the staff were attentive without being too in your face. I enjoy getting waited upon, but I dislike having to stop eating to answer questions all the time- they seem to have struck the right balance here. The food was very good, the pizza base was light, and the pasta dishes we... More
