Door is shut so you need to push your way in. Inside is homey yet smart with huge paintings. The maitre d was welcoming and kind. Waiters were very present but not annoying. Better than that, they were charming and I felt looked after. The...More

A true pleasure to dine here. And it is dining...not just eating out. Buon Ricordo is an old school Italian restaurant with class, style, service and great food. White table cloths and waiters in white jackets, yummy fresh food and great ambience ... these are...More

Had dinner with family on a week night, around 70% full, but the place can be a bit loud if I may use the term loosely. Food has been maintained at a high level, and the wine list is also quite extensive. Portions are generous...More

Great staff , however they appeared very tense and flustered all night. The main course took a long time (almost 1hr) to arrive. Their signatory fettuccini serving was small and not cooked right through! At the end of the night, when asked by the owner,...More

This restaurant survives on local well heeled people.It is very pricey and in my opinion not worth it. The service was poor with both orders and food delivery taken in a rush. A quite expensive wine we ordered had cork taint. The wine waiter did...More

Always a pleasure to have a 'special' occasion to go to Buon Ricordo. Under the watchful eye and expertise of brilliant chef and owner, Armond, the service and ambience is truly second to none for Italian cuisine in Sydney. We were fortunate to be included...More
