Saturday night dinner. We were looking forward to pendolino. We were impressed. Again. Flavours are excellent. Service was so good. Chardonnay which was recommended was just right. Overall the experience was really good. We rate pendolino highly.

We have been coming to Pendolino for several years and they just get it right every time.in my opinion it is one of Sydney's most under rated restaurants. The food is always fantastic, house made pastas and breads and great olive oils. I've never had...More

Most importantly - food outstanding. Four-course, traditional Italian set menu, with matching wines was just delightful. Second - service was spot on - not intrusive, but sufficiently attentive. Thirdly atmosphere was ideal - there was a buzz, but we were able to have a conversation...More

We arrived excited after reading the positive reviews. The staff were attentive, helpful and efficient. Pre dinner champagne was lovely as was the risotto entree. Unfortunately we felt the mains: quail and seafood tasted over seasoned with salt for our palate. The after dinner truffles...More

The service and food is superb. The restaurant is suitable for business, romantic, occasion, plus it is even kid friendly.

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
