The 2 wood fire Pizzas Pepperoni and Prosciutto were really good! The waiter was very friendly but we were a bit surprised that there was a cover charge... You really need to read the small print on the Menu Card about that there is a 10% service surcharge on Sundays and Public Holidays.

Is not very cheap but is the kind of place to go when you are starving 'cause the portions are big, and they don't split. To start the cheesy arancini balls bites are fantastic!

This is an amazingly genuine Italian restaurant. I have just returned from Italy and this is definitely in the same league. Wood fired pizzas are light & tasty. The chicken risotto was good and very well complimented by the Tuscan salad. My son had an un-Italian burger, but very good as well. Staff are friendly and atmosphere is great. Individual... More

This is a visually pleasant coffee roasters. Assortment of speciality cakes and pastries available. There is an Italian waiter to give the cafe a real authentic feel. I like the atmosphere and the Italian waiter....it's almost perfect.

Walked in on a whim and it was one of the best decisions we made during our stay in Sydney. Lovely staff, prompt service and great food. My daughter said her chicken burger was the best she's ever had and considering it had kale and sweet potato on it, that is very high praise. The noise level was a little... More

we came here for lunch and ordered 2 very tasty dishes which were porchetta burger and penne pollo e pancetta. The portion was generous for the pasta, and standard sized for the burger. The pork was moist, while the berry compote filling gives a tangy flavour which compliments the meat. The pasta was beautiful with generous amount of pancetta. Totally... More

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.
