We went to La Spiaggia to get a good experience the last night of our stay at Coogee beach. The food is good, but not as good as you might expect. I enjoyed my pizza and the atmosphere at the place is good.

This was a fantastic place to eat and drink! The service was wonderful and the atmosphere was very Italian and relaxed. Definitely be returning next time I'm in Sydney!

Doooooon’t You know those restaurants. You near the beach, it’s a warm summer night. You like the look of an Italian restaurant. It looks sleekish and it’s got white clothed tables out the front and it looks busy. Well La Spiaggia is one of those. Only the food is actually lousy and so is the service. The reason it looks...

Reading reviews of this restaurant, I think we must have eaten at a different one as our collective experience - party of 7 - was one of disappointment. The atmosphere and beach side location did not compensate for the poor service or the ordinary food. I often wonder whether TAFE students would be failed for some of the dishes we... More

This was our first visit here. We really liked this place. Dark wood, white tablecloths and friendly service. I felt like having scallopine limone which wasn't on the sizeable menu - (which included many varieties of pizza) and I asked the waiter if the kitchen could make it for me. He said that'd be no problem at all and it... More

Great food and great service complemented each other for a corporate dinner in a seperated area. We have ordered a set menu started off with Antipasto - Olives and Arancini were very tasty. Followed by a wood fired pizza shared with 4 people. Main course was a choice of fish, veal, pork, chicken and vegetarian which catered all type of... More
