“Worst Restaurant Ever”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

On entering the extremely noisy restaurant for our late (8pm) booking, our party of eight were seated at a table that was clearly only meant for six – we had no idea where they were going to place our pizzas, as there was barely room for our glasses and bottles of water! We were soon told by the waitress that she could not take our order for a while because there was a big party upstairs and she was told that our order would 'confuse the kitchen'! I'm sorry, but if your restaurant seats a certain number of people (parties included) you should be able to serve them all in a timely manner! Eventually we were offered two free entrees to stave off the hunger pains, but this did not make up for the fact that our mains did not arrive until 9.30pm, way past dinner time. We will never visit this restaurant again, when there are so many other establishments in Parramatta that do treat their diners in a professional manner.

“Could have been better”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

We were a party of four and were placed at a very small table. Then within 5 minutes two different girls both told us that they would be looking after us. Then a waiter dropped a bottle of water and showered the table in broken glass which forced a move of table - thankfully to a bigger table. Ordered a lemonade and received straight soda as machine had run out of syrup. It looked like it was going to be like a night at Fawlty Towers.
An entrée each and three signature Pizza's set us back $120. Overall the food was very nice but with the problems it wasn't the lovely evening out that we were looking forward to.
I don't think we would be going back any time soon.

“Nice but nothing to rave about”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

My wife and son attended this restaurant this evening 5/7/13. The decore and ambience looked inviting. We waited at the foyer of the restaurant for approx 3-4 minutes without acknowledgement from any staff. The maitre de was on the telephone, and numerous other staff walked past us without even a "Hello". Sat down to our table and our waitnress introduced herself, seemed pleasant enough but she seemed ill as she was coughing quite a bit. Our entree was very nice, consisting of the mixed platter, very enjoyable. Mains was a let down. Very bland pasta and pine nuts dish. We did not stay for desert or coffee. Nice enough but would not return. Filled out the appraisal form prior to leaving.

“Stick with the Pizza”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

6 of us dined on Saturday night , the venue has a good vibrant feel to it however the TV screens all around the restaurant are an un-necessary distraction especially as they show a constant stream of advertising for the restaurant you are already in and a very average collection of adrenalin sports on repeat (we saw the same vision 3 times in an hour). Service was very good, the menu was quite broad, drinks arrived quickly. The big problem of the night for us was 5 out of 6 meals arrived at the same time and the 6th arrived almost 10 minutes later, not good enough. The pizzas ordered were excellent, the pasta ordered by one of us was just plain bland, the lamb salad very nice. Couldn't fault the service but to mess the up the meal delivery is a basic mistake , and the mix of quality of meals leaves this as a questionable experience.

“Been here twice”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

Me and several of my friends came here in early January as we were in the area and thought it looked cool, and relaxed. It was really cool atmosphere, decor, and staff were extremely friendly, and always smiling and happy. However, I went back with (most of) the same friends a couple months back, and the place has gone so down hill - terrible waitresses, they don't know the menu properly, the service is far from friendly now, the food is disgusting, and the portions are TINY! Especially compared to what they used to be. The pizza's go cold way too fast, and they take much, much too long to come out. Me or any of my friends will not be going back here, and we don't recommend Bondi Pizza Parramatta either -- total rip off, and terrible service.
