I cannot say that we had bad food but we definitely did not have authentic Italian food. We ordered a pasta with salmon that was drowning in cream and some gnocchi that were pretty much the same as the ones you can get at the supermarket The chocolates that they gave us with the bill however were really good All...

Woollahra is known for some great restaurants, so this one was a little disappointing. The front area looks lovely and inviting, but we were seated at the back, which is pretty stark and uninspiring. The staff also tends to forget you if you're at the back. Food is nice enough, and if you really want Italian, there's not a lot... More

This little family restaurant has been in the same place for decades, and the menu has hardly changed. Perhaps that is because you don't need to change if the food is great! Terrific prawns, the barbequed baby squid was a taste sensation and the fillets of barramundi (for one of us) and snapper were succulent, delicious and just perfectly flavoured... More

Good quality traditional Italian food. The seafood pasta’s are really nice. The restaurant is a intimate although felt a little overcrowded.

Yep, the authenticity is there. So there was no pretention with service or presentation. Pricey to the point I'm just going to eat at Buon ricordo next time. The bread was stale, the flavours of the pastas lacked punch and depth. At least it wasn't dry like other Italian places. I won't be falling over to come back, it's consistently... More

We are fairly regular diners at this restaurant, which offers tasty Italian food in a room reminiscent of the 60's. The noise level is not helped by the owner's loud voice. The food is fairly basic for the prices charged, but it is consistent and in a good location with easy parking.

We arrived on time and had to wait on the pavement outside for over 15 minutes until our table was ready, which was not the best start to the evening. When we were allowed in we were ushered into the back room, again a little disappointed not to be sitting at the front part of the restaurant (there were only... More
