Had an incredible long lunch here with friends. We went for the tasting menu with matching wines and loved it. The range of food was wonderful, the staff were just so helpful and friendly - I could not recommend this restaurant too highly.

Pleasant surprise discovery. Beautiful food, charming wait staff. Stylish. If you're lucky you might get an entire pig carcass carried past your table as you lunch :-)

I can't believe that I have just discovered this Italian gem. It is wonderful. The staff are extremely helpful, giving great advice on what to drink and food to order. The food was sensational. We hear that the menu changes weekly. We will be back! This restaurant is tucked away in a laneway with the door not being obvious, so... More

Well what a find. I was starting to think I was in the wrong place, but then I found it. In a side street away from touristville, you have to know it's there. Amazing food, padron pepper starter and a half portion of lamb ragu with aubergine (that was plenty). Simply Devine. Sat at the bar and chatted with friendly... More

Tucked away under an office block, the door is not very obvious. Very helpful staff, gave great advice on what to order, food was amazing! Wine was good too.

We were staying in an apartment next door to Berta and discovered it walking by the first evening. It isn't obvious as the front door looks like another apartment building but once you go in and walk down the passage it soon becomes clear that this gem of a restaurant is buzzing! I was travelling with a friend and we... More

Went here with a group of people which I would say is the best way to dine at Berta. I would recommend ordering a good number of dishes so that you get to taste as much of the produce as possible. As the menu constantly changes it is somewhere you can dine at many times. The beer and wine selection... More

We tried this restaurant during our honeymoon and we were positively surprised by the kindness of the staff and the level of the food (Italian cuisine here). Recommended!

After returning from a 3 week holiday in Tuscany, my son and I were craving for a meal of equal quality as we experienced every night during our travels. Berta delivered on most counts. Food was good, wine list very good but service was a little inconsistent, poor couple next to us really were not happy (not a lot of... More

A true favourite which never disappoints. Was able to get a booking sitting up at the bar on the same day. Service is superb. Stewart is incredibly helpful for recommendations on food and wine. The menu changes regularly and everything is simply delicious. Just love this restaurant

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
