We had a wonderful time there and it was mostly due to our Italian waiter. He was so funny and nice and helpful. The food was very good also and we went on his recommendations. We will for sure go back as often as possible....More

As we walked past Rossini at Circular Quay during a recent visit to Sydney, I noticed a well-placed blackboard advertising ricotta-filled doughnuts. Having just returned home from the UK and Hungary, where curd-filled baked goods are divine, we made sure we stopped in for a...More

This place had some of the best pizza we ordered in Australia! Even though we came in late, the wait staff was gracious and helpful!

25 minutes waiting time even though the restaurant was empty at the lunch time Food grossly overcooked with a taste of burnt rubber Management ignored our remarks that food is dangerous for human consumption.

We ate here for breakfast last week - had bacon scrambled eggs toast and tomato - serving was generous and tasty topped off with a view of Sydney Harbour bridge with a Carnival Cruise ship in port. Great start to my working day.

We stopped for Dinner while we were at Vivid. The food was good but very overpriced. I have never paid over $20 for a bowl of Garden Salad and a small Pizza was $25. The waitress was lovely and we were going to leave her...More

Late lunch options gave enough choices for a selective group of four. Service was OK--but restaurant was pretty empty due to time of day. Really nice view of the Sydney Harbor Bridge. Expensive...but we got what we paid for, i.e., a great view (primary) with...More

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
