We have had a light lunch here on several previous visits to Sydney but never previously had time to book for an evening meal. Service was excellent. The food was excellent but a little rich. Wine by the glass was of excellent quality in keeping with the price. An enjoyable night and we will return.

Great location, upstairs in the Strand Arcade.

We dined on a Wednesday evening and the restaurant was very busy.

The service was professional and attentive, and the food was wonderful. Our group enjoyed the oysters, tuna, spaghetti, and a stunning ravioli dish.

Pendolino also produce their own range of olive oil - it was so nice that we couldn't resist buying a couple of bottles.

Highly recommended.

This was our second visit in just over a month and we can't wait to go back again. The food is simply the best we have had across Australia. The flavours are amazing. The wine list is extensive with a range of prices from about $50 to $1450. We stayed near the $50 range and picked an excellent Hunter Valley Chardonnay from Arrowfield winery and an Amarone style red from Hilltops region of NSW. Both wines were outstanding. Te restaurant has bags of atmosphere and the service is first rate.

this place is a little odd to find---it's on the second (ok, they say "1st") floor in a mall sort of place. Just ask someone, and it's easy to find.
food was wonderful---service was A +--wine was good but overpriced, but what else in new.
I loved my meal and would return in a heartbeat to enjoy some of the other items on the menu

We recently had dinner at this restaurant in a party of 4. The experience was first class and one can fully understand the existing high rating for the restaurant.

We selected the degustation menu with matching wines and had a lovely array of dishes with every dish a winner. The spinach ravioli and pork medallions dishes were absolutely mouth watering. A wonderful experience.

The service was outstanding and staff very friendly and obliging.

The restaurant was busy for a midweek evening and obviously the noise of the restaurant was indicative of a large gathering.

A faultless evening and a wonderful dining experience. Highly recommended.
