We used to go to Gelbison weekly. Stopped for a while. Came back. Stopped for another while. Usually stopped after a few bad meals. Returned last night to the same, good old flavours, my favourite mushroom and artichoke Margherita. The great lettuce salad with the old familiar vinegar dressing. New owner perhaps? Cannot wait to get back there for those... More

Gelbisons Restaurant Bondi Well after 14 years of frequenting this once lovely place I am sad to say that after this evenings experience when we ordered a Pesto Pasta, which was served with a Pesto/tomato sauce, any good chef would be stunned The person who ordered the dish does not like tomato and it was a surprise to be told...

What a delight in the heart of Bondi. Was pleasantly surprised with the delicious authentic flavour and friendly swift service. A nice relaxed vibe. Highly recommend.

A family favourite for years now, and years to come. I have been here countless times and never had a bad meal. The zuppa di cozze mussels are a must.

Had the food delivered so not sure if it's the same eating in the restaurant or not... Food was cooked well but lacked a little in flavour. Had the gnocchi al panna, allegedly came with ham but none found. The garlic pizza was a little lacking in garlic flavour too, but it was cooked well with nice crispy base. Delivery... More

Nice pizza and pasta. Friendly staff in an typical authentic Italian restaurant. No fancy food place. A nice traditional Italian place to enjoy good food with nice people. I can only recommend that place. Perhaps on weekend you might get in troubles if you need a bigger table. Reservations are recommended! Enjoy!!!

Have been coming here for years for take away potato and parmigiana pizzas. It's always busy so I prefer take away. Always great.

Italian restaurants are a dime a doz in Sydney, especially Bondi. Gelbison is small, hellishly noisy, regrettably eastern-suburbs-brat friendly but made up for by exceptional pizza and pasta, reasonably priced, efficient and friendly service, pleasant location and BYO

Old fashioned Italian restaurant . Couldn't complain about the pasta or pizza as it is good value for what you get. It gets busy and the floor staff can then lose the plot which was amusing on the night. The culture of backpacker staffing restaurants in sydney is getting out of hand......are the owners paying the right rates?

Went for dinner, 7 people in total. We had booked in advance but the place was full of people. Had to wait for half an hour. We ordered immediately. No starters so it took a while before the dishes arrived. Very tasteful food and a good value for money
