“A Wonderful Meal with Excellent Service”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

We tried Fiorenzoni on the recommendation of friends, and had a wonderful meal. The restaurant entrance is on Victoria Ave and in conveniently located for access by both CityRail and car, as there are several parking stations nearby.

We had no trouble booking and were warmly welcomed on arrival. The décor is tasteful modern Italian and the seating was comfortable. The menu is straightforward and easy to read/understand. There were two blackboard special items available, an entrée and a main, which were clearly explained to us.

We both chose Antipasto di mare to start, followed by Arrosto di marale and the blackboard special main (Salt and Pepper Squid), then concluded with Crème bruciata for desert.

We brought our own wine, a Margan 2010 Rose (Shiraz-Saignee), and there was a $10 corkage charge for the bottle. Our bill came to ~$150, which we consider excellent value for the quality of food, service and venue.

The food was perfectly prepared and delicious, while the service was attentive and friendly.

We had an excellent dining experience and will be returning in the future.

Highly recommended!

“Very Good Italian Dinner ^^”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

I've been there some days ago with my sister. We are Italians and we were looking for a good Italian restaurant close to our temporary Australian house and we found this one! Finally really Italian food and thanks God not so expensive as many restaurants in Sydney!
We ate everything from entree to dessert, drinking a bottle of wine and spending less then 100$AU each! And we also drink our favorite Italian aperitif SPRITZ before dinner!
What else? Come at Fiorenzoni for a really Italian dinner! Also because it was recognized as one of the best Italian restaurants in the world from the association Ospitalita' Italiana nel Mondo.
See ya guys!

“Food Good ....Value Dreadful”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

Yes food is good but found portions very small and extremely expensive for what you got even by general Sydney prices these days.

culinaryjudge, Manager at Fiorenzoni, responded to this review, January 28, 2013
I find this review suspicious as you have not left details on what you have eaten? When? Why? The fact that you have not written any other reviews anywhere makes your review even more questionable. Nonetheless, if you truthfully ate at Fiorenzoni all our dishes including mains are ALL under $30 and if you have the Entertainment Card you would have received a second main meal at your table for FREE. If that is not value and providing such high quality natural ingredients at the same time all home-made then I don't know where you are coming from.

“A great dining experience”
Reviewed June 2, 2012

My family and I enjoyed a wonderful Italian meal last night – at a great little restaurant tucked away in Sydney’s Chatswood. “Fiorenzoni” is a quiet and very friendly placed on the ground floor of an office block. The menu was varied and all four of us enjoyed different starters and mains – genuine Italian cooking with subtle flavours – great bread and olive oil, antipasto arrangements were delicious. Try the home made spaghetti and blue swimmer crab – normally I am not into mixing seafood and pasta but this was exceptional – subtle flavours and just the right size helpings. The wine list was good. The service wonderful with the waiter, Rocco, attending to our needs and recommending the correct coffee (espresso) to have at the end of the meal, rather than my usual cappuccino as it aids the digestion – and it worked. The limoncello was to die for. Not a cheap eatery but well worth the visit for exceptional food and friendly service. We will certainty retaurn!
