This is a must when you visit Canberra. It is only a small restaurant but it packs a big punch. The staff are friendly, very efficient and very knowledgeable. The food was amazing, it made you want more. Portion size was good and you felt fed when you left. Would highly recommend this restaurant.....Loved it

Came back to Italian & Sons for a family celebration after a break of about seven months.

The restaurant seems to have maintained its strong popularity with Canberrans – two evening sittings, with every seat taken. Compact, cosy and convivial in winter, so not the place for a quiet conversation.

An innovative, but relatively small, modern Italian menu. Couldn't resist their pizzas which were highly authentic with beautiful crispy crust and tasty toppings. Huge selection of cheeses although we did not try them on this occasion. Loved their gelato which had a fresh home-made taste.

The restaurant has a well-stocked bar and the menu features a few Italian style cocktails. Wine list offers a good choice including some reasonably priced Italian wines.

Service is cheerful and efficient.

It is wise to book in advance and also to arrive early to get a parking spot in the slightly awkward location in which this restaurant is situated.

Had been recommended this place by foodie from sydney so we had high expectations.
However we were a bit let down. Too noisy, far to crowded and cramped. And too expensive. Food good newer twist on italian v tasty. But not a lot of choice.I feel its been over rated. Perhaps if cheaper it would be great hit. And please a bit of space so we dont have to dodge people brushing past continuously. Certainly not the place to take someone you wanted to get to know better.

The service here was great, but the menu was limited. There was nothing for kids and the vegetarian menu was extremely small. The food we got was nice enough, but we expected more for the price. This restaurant is not suited to families with children or vegetarians.

This was one of our star finds on recent visit to Canberra. The team were very gracious, and arranged for a table for us even when very busy on Friday evening. The welcome was great, greeted as returning friends & the food & wine wonderful. Even though space is tight, it gave opportunity to meet new people, & share our dining experiences. Can recommend highly.
