I have eaten at Machiavelli's a few times and each time hasn't disappointed. This time it was mid week, still a busy place for dinner and a great atmosphere. I like the photos of politicians on the wall and they have changed over time as new people come to the fore.

The food is excellent and the staff attentive - a true italian experience.

Classic Decor and Menu with what I could only describe as a "Family" feel about it.

The food was generally good and not too overpriced for the city. The Creape suvette wasn't cooked off enough for my taste and quite runny / soggy, but the Strawberries were exceptional. Service was efficient but friendly with the single exception of a reluctance to serve more than one desert to an individual dinner ?

All in all a pleasant experience.

This restaurant has been around since 1988, apparently run by the same owner. Despite the name, there is nothing duplicitous about the food. The fusilli I had was a little heavy on cheese but had genuine crabmeat still with bits of shell. Sydney has a wide choice of Italian restaurants, and this one may not be the best, but it must among the better ones worth trying.

We enjoyed the food. We had an appetizer of zucchini flowers and olives/cheese. We enjoyed our main dishes which were lasagna and spaghetti Machiavelli. It was definitely a great choice of restaurant.
