We went to this restaurant with friends on a Friday evening. It is very stylish and busy. We started with a bottle of Prosseco and for starters we shared antipasto and one serve of fresh scallops between 4 (unfortunately by the time our order got to the kitchen this meal had been sold out) - the scallops were melt watering - and enjoyed with a Veneto district Pinot Grigio / Sav Blanc blend with an aromatic taste. For mains we had Pork, Veal, Blue Eye Cod ,and Snapper - with a Pino Grigio. We couldn't manage dessert. This restaurant is well worth a visit and booking is essential.

Stylish, designer like Italian Bar Ristorante and Pizzeria serving up some very innovative dishes using fresh produce. Authentic wood fired pizza (with official stamp of approval from South Italy. Friendly and efficient service. Great place for dates!

Went in on the basis of the sign saying its pizzas meet the Neapolitan standard and I was not disappointed with the prosciutto and rocket pizza. Partner's pasta was good albeit a bit small in size. However the starters were a treat - beetroot stuffed calamari and deep fried anchovies with cheese . Amazing flavour and textures ! service was good. Wine list was reasonable and the waiters friendly and attentive. One of the better Norton street Italians

My husband and I went here for dinner last Friday and we absolutely loved it. Leichhardt itself seems to have lost its way over the past few years, but this place is a refreshing surprise. The food was all fantastic, the pizza in particular was delicious! It has a great ambience and the service was faultless.
Leichhardt needs more places like this to bring some life back to the place, highly recommend.

Booked an early dinner on a Saturday,as we were attending a band concert at 7pm. Initially we were the only ones in the restaurant so the service was very good. They seemed to have many staff on hand. The place is nicely set out with larger bookings in the outside area out in the courtyard. We had a lovely 3 course meal with wine and were out the door by 6.50pm!!
As the IWCB(Inner West Community Band) regularly plays at Leichhardt we'll be dining here again!!
