“Honest Italian food - delicious!”
Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

We enjoyed our meal at this unique, warm restaurant. The pasta was the best I've had and the dessert to die for! We ordered the calamari grilled for entree which was soft and very tasty, home made bread, pappardelle truffle with porcini, gnocchi with butter sage sauce, spinach risotto and panna cotta. Excellent service - we will certainly be making the trip for more!

“Rustic italian”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

Very good and quite a surprise find in the burbs. Our only complaint is the waitresses who seemed to know nothing about the menu at all..... Please chef, they need instruction!

“totally awesome authentic Italian”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

Last night we travelled to Brookvale for the footy we live 1 hour north of Newcastle. we had the most amazing meal at Trattoria II Segreto. For starters we shared the delicious antipasto platter. To die for seafood pasta and the pasta with stuffed porcini mushrooms in truffle oil, accompanied by splendid Italian wine. All Gluten Free the chef / owner introduced himself which is something that doesn't usually happen these days which is s shame . what a hidden gem we will definitely be back. :) :) <3

“Amazing, authentic italian cuisine”
Reviewed June 26, 2014

Last night we had an amazing night at Trattoria Il Segreto. All the food was hand made by the chef/ owner and passionately served by him. Wonderful calamari with rocket salad, pasta, gnocchi and risotto all hand made with delicious sauces and then to top it all off incredible desserts. Of course, the final touch was his own lemoncello and berry grappa which was also amazing. What a find, and just around the corner. We'll definitely be back.

“Absolutely amazing!!”
Reviewed May 20, 2014

An organised bus trip to the Restuarant with 53 friends was well worth the trip from Wollongong.
The pasta which is made fresh daily and catered to all dietary needs was absolutely amazing as was the ravioli & all the other dishes. The owner of this Restuarant (Vinicio) is so passionate about the food he creates showed on the day. A mixture of vegetarian dishes, gluten free was all available & raw cake, homemade deserts & ice cream.
53 very happy friends left the Restuarant & haven't stopped talking about it since, a return visit will be planned sooner than later.
Highly recommend this quaint Restuarant.
