“Overall rating of Very good...but only just!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

We went as a group...2 families for a sunday lunch. The most memorable thing was the service both by their professional authentic Italian waiters to the chef himself, who comes out of the kitchen to have a chat and explain or introduce the dishes to you..special indeed!!! Next comes the food, the food was overall very good but only just. We had the mixed platter salumi of cured meats which was good. The seawater fish which was also good although not exceptional. The squid ink spaghetti which was good but once again not excellent (we have had better in other sydney Italian restaurants) and the kids seem to enjoy their burgers. Good selection of wines and beers. The atmosphere is also good as it is an open restaurant (al fresco) with partial views of Cronulla beach but once again one of the negatives is its proximity to Hogs Breath café with all their noisy crowd ogling you as you eat your food...and then finally the value...well we did find it a bit expensive for the overall experience however as most people know Cronulla is not re known for their amazing restaurants or food scene yet Giro Osteria is a great addition and definitely a step in the right direction for the locals....We would go there again but probably for a special occasion only.

“Delicious Italian food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

My second visit to Giro Osteria in 3 months and both dining experiences were very enjoyable. We were promptly greeted and seated by a friendly waitress who offered us water while we perused the menus from which she happily explained the various dishes to us.
The 5 of us decided to share 4 entrees. The stuffed zucchini flowers were filled with minced Crystal Bay prawns, lightly battered and deep fried. Very moreish and it was voted the favourite entree.
There was a good selection of mains which catered to meat lovers, seafood eaters and vegetarians. My lamb cutlets were full of delicious flavours and finger licking good.
It was difficult to choose from the dessert menu because everything sounded so good but we tried the cannoli filled with pistashio and ricotta and the rum baba. They were very delicious and I recommend them both. The only negative was the original seating didn't comfortably accomodate 5 diners My son had his plate situated on the gap between 2 tables that were pushed together. We had to reconfigure the seats ourselves
