My wife and I wanted a quick meal before the opera, and stumbled across this restaurant at The Rocks. Although we had no table reservation we were quickly seated and assured we would be served in plenty of time for our show. We received a warm welcome and friendly efficient service in a pleasant atmosphere. No sooner had we ordered than we received a complimentary appetiser of Sicilian olives, bread and olive oil for dipping. Our margherita pizza had a thin base that was a bit soft for my taste and authentic toppings of tomato, cheese and basel. The fettucine was first class and built around house-made pasta. We wound up with a good quality lemon sorbet. Complementary biscotti came with the bill and we were out the door as promised, in plenty of time for the show. The wine list was limited but we found wines to our liking by the glass. Prices were on the high side, but on a par with other restaurants in this pricey part of Sydney.

Great service, below average food (for my meal, which was on the specials menu). I also didn't feel too great, at all, straight after and for the following day. A meal the other person ordered was fine.

The concierge at our hotel recommended 3 nearby Italian restaurants and we choose Appetito, the 2nd we got to in our wandering. A very pleasant evening with top quality food.

We arrived at Appetito on a Saturday night and without a reservation upon the recommendation of the Concierge at the Four Seasons. We were greeted warmly and though the restaurant was very busy, we were shown straight away to a table upstairs. Appetitio has a slick, modern interior within a lovely old building right in The Rocks. I was pleased to get a view of the busy kitchen at work. The service was quick and friendly and our waiter was very helpful. He gave a very accurate estimate of how long our main meals would take and on that basis, we ordered an entree to share as we were quite hungry. The food was wonderful. We had a very pleasant experience all round. One point though was that we left a good tip for our waiter as we thought the service warranted acknowledgment but when we had a look at the bill later, there had been a 10% weekend surcharge already added to the bill. Had we noticed this beforehand, we might not have been so generous.

From ambience to service to food, everything was perfect.

Starters were right sized and delicious. Main course was more than one person can eat, plenty and delicious. Loved a glass of Chianti along with my funghi pizza.

Service is right paced and personal.

Strongly recommended!!!
