By FAR the best pizza I've had outside of Naples. I got the Margarita Pizza and it was amazing. Simple flavors of tomato sauce, olive oil, basil and mozzarella. The crust was perfectly thin and the pizza simply wonderful. Dessert was the Tiramisu. OMG, if you don't like Italian food, just go for this. AMAZING... Top notch staff.

Newly discovered Italian restaurant in Coogee. I had read a very good review recently, and it certainly didn't disappoint. The food was superb, the service was excellent, the atmosphere was great. I was so impressed that I went back a week later, and it was just as good. Can't fault it.

Fantastic Italian guaranteed! This restaurant is great whether for a quick dinner after work or a special occasion on a Friday night! The wait staff are amazing, hospitable and they know their food! I personally love their pizzas and often order from the specials menu. Can't fault them, always 10/10!

We enjoyed our dinner here. I had a very good Scampi dish and it was a laid back atmosphere with soft lighting. It's a perfect setting for a couple and not loud

Great sit down restaurant with awesome Italian dishes. The restaurant had a cozy, semi-formal vibe with a great menu and good service. Highly recommend trying the Nutella pizza dessert!

We found La Spiaggia as we we strolling up the shopping street and were glad we stepped into this lovely Italian restaurant. I am a big Italian food fan and loved the dishes served. The service was excellent and will return the next time I am in Sydney

Very tasty, high quality, real Italian food, reasonably-priced wine list and courteous staff. Family-owned (you'll probably be welcomed by Maurizio) A popular place so well advised to book in advance.

In Sydney for the weekend and visited a favourite haunt - La Spiaggia with my daughters and we weren't disappointed. The lasagne was to die for served with a scrumptious salad. My girls also had pasta dishes and thoroughly enjoyed them. A must visit when in Coogee!

Staying in Coogee

Neighbourhood Profile
Very accessible by public transport, Coogee is the smaller, friendlier, more intimate version of Bondi Beach. Coogee is the only beach in the Eastern suburbs that does not have big waves, making it an excellent family beach. The Coogee Bay Hotel, located right across the beach, has one of the biggest beer gardens in Australia and plenty of entertainment every night of the week. Be on the lookout for celebrity footballers! A little further south is Wylie’s Baths, offering sweeping 180 degree views over the Pacific Ocean, and it is perfect for a swim or a few laps. Plenty of dining choices surround the beach, including the famous fish and chips.
