Having checked into our accommodation just down the road, we headed off down O'Connell Street in search of dinner. There was no shortage of options, but our sense if smell led us to Pellegrini. Staff were very pleasant and efficient, and service prompt. Husband ordered the Bistecca and I, Risotto con funghi. The steak was blue, just as he had... More

Not sure why people have raved about this place. I went to dinner here one night after the restaurant we wanted to go to was booked out. Service was incredibly slow. It took 45 mins to get food, and when it arrived it was totally tasteless. I ordered the chicken risotto, and all I could taste was cream. Even adding... More

Great coffee and service from the ladies in the morning. Breakfast is really good, lots of choice and very reasonably priced. Dinner is also very good and well priced, but have to say service is not nearly as good. Grumpy guy in charge and very junior girls serving.

I travel for business and make this restaurant a must visit each time. I usually dine on my own and don't feel like I standout here. A great choice of food and I always go for a Pasta with a large selection on offer. Staff are attentive and prices are good. Recommended.

We also ordered bruschetta to start with but the mains were delivered before the bruschetta. When we queried this they offered to... More

Their scallopini pescatore was absolutely beautiful, serviced with nicely cooked veges and covered in a lovely and delicate garlic and lemon sauce. The service was excellent and quick. Well worth a visit.
