We were hungry in The Rocks and fancied Italian. We visited this place based on the Trip Advisor reviews. It was really busy when we arrived so the staff took our details and promised to contact us once a table was free. We'd hardly started our drinks at the bar a few doors down before we were called by the restaurant, they were happy to wait until we finished our drinks.

The menu was mainly pizza and pasta with a few meat and fish dishes and some specials. We were a party of 4 with 2 veggies and 2 meat eaters. We had starters of prawns, caprese salad and rocket and parmesan salad. The prawns looked good and the salads were great, the caprese was on the small side.

We all opted for pasta for mains. Gnocchi with Gorgonzola sauce was nice and light and very cheesy, the tagliatelle with pesto was fragrant and tasty without being too oily or heavy on the basil and the bolognese sauce was apparently "the best ever bolognese". So good was the bolognese that my friend requested to speak to the chef to get the secret recipe an cooking tips.

We followed with coffees and a tiramisu between 3. With 2 bottles of wine the whole meal was just over $200, the service was perfect and the atmosphere was great.

Service was slow and staff seemed overwhelmed. Food was adequate for the pricing.

Went to this small Kent Street Italian eatery before Vivid. It is a cosy, welcoming restaurant with red checked table clothes, extremely friendly waitstaff, and and tables not too close to each other.

The prices were amazing for a city restaurant, all pizzas, and pasta dishes were under $20 and mains were all under $25. For the price, we were expecting very small serves, but were surprised at the large size of the pasta and pizzas we ordered. Pizzas were light and authentic with lovely fresh ingredients.

This restaurant is a gem and we'll definitely head back there soon.

We went to the restaurant after we did the Bridgeclimb. We were tired and hungry. The restaurant was small and cozy and the food was delicious. Very good value for the money. The top it off, the people who owned it were super nice and friendly and made the entire experience very good!
