Should have gone with my instincts when we walked downstairs into a basement on a hot Summer evening....We know Sydney is expensive for us poor Brits,,but this was totally outrageous!This restaurant had been highly recommended to my son, and he had booked a table for 4 adults,2 children..should have been told they don't do small portions for kids..Waiter suggested they share a plate of spaghetti..predictable result..one quite liked it,the other not at all...I can't even remember what we ate...except I have had much better,tastier,authentic Italian food in Scotland!I now realise this is a business/corporate type restaurant for expense account diners....not at all for family groups...

was a bit frustrated with the lack of real italian restaurants in Sydney...most are eclectic fusion places that masquerade as Italian...Machiavelli was superb, prosciutto san danielle was sliced fresh on a table in the middle of the dining room and the veal parmigiana was excellent....definitely the finest real italian restaurant in sydney

Dined here on a Monday evening and I have to say it was Delizioso!! I had the Gorgonzola gnocchi and profiteroles. The Gorgonzola sauce was very authentic and had a wonderful flavor. The profiteroles were excellent at well. Highly recommended. Staff were helpful and friendly with menu.
