My wife enjoyed the Nobili pizza but I wandered from the worn track and had the gnocchi with four cheese. Also known as gnocchi with hardly any cheese. Staff weren't interested in asking if enjoyed our meal - just lame service.

We live locally in Balmain & like to support the rich array of restaurants in this area. Rarely do I complain but approach difficult busy nights with compassion & understanding . To put it bluntly , the woman who served us was rude & disrespectful . We waited for almost an hour for garlic bread, then a salad came which... More

Pasta and pizza that would make an Italian homesick ....cooking just like mummas. Love the pizzas, including gluten free. Staff welcoming and efficient. Can get rowdy, but hey that's Italy, right?

We live just down the road and visit this restaurant every couple of weeks - sometimes as a couple and often with out of town guests. It's cosy and authentic - run by lovely Italian people. The pizzas and pastas are delicious but my absolute favourite is he Mixed Seafood Grill (on the specials menu). Desserts are a must -... More

It's Ok and that's about it. Solo diner a in place with only a couple of tables occupied. I was attracted because the place looks inviting and they have a wood fired oven which is usually an indicator that someone is interested in what they're doing. No selling of the menu, no mention of specials (even though there were some..on... More

There were some empty tables when we arrived so the restaurant was not very busy yet we waited a ridiculously long time to order and then a long time to get food. We even had to ask twice for our drinks. The ambience is nice although my boyfriend and I would have preferred to sit at a larger table (so... More

Just moved back to Balmain after being away for 4 years and ordered some takeaway pizzas. Not sure if they have changed owners or just the way they make the pizza but now they are really bad. The sauce was watered down and they used to have good salami and now it is some pepperoni with little flavor. Not the... More

I ordered one of their recommended pasta dishes and it was totally forgettable. It was a chicken and mushroom dish but both must have been expensive at the market as there was very little of either in the dish. There was very little sauce on it, and it was tasteless. I came home and made myself a sandwich and will... More

Dropped into the Il Casale Nobili with two equally hungry friends last night. I wasn't sure that I really wanted pizza as my wife is a 'pescetarian' but she and friend were keen so we ordered. I have to say my mind was changed when the pizzas arrived - very promptly. They were both delicious - one with prawn the... More

Staying in Balmain

Neighborhood Profile
Take the ferry to the inner west suburb of Balmain and be enchanted with this picturesque and eclectic waterside area. A stroll down Darling Street will take you on a tour of coffee shops, boutique delicatessens and shops offering wholefood products and organic cuisines. Yoga studios abound, and live music emanates from the hotels at night. As the place where the Australian Labor Party formed in 1891, Balmain has commonly been known for its “working class culture”. It has evolved into a health-conscious heaven with a laid back attitude, offering one of the most vibrant food and bar scenes in Sydney.
