We had dinner at La Disfida Italian restaurant last Saturday night, as "preparation" for our upcoming holidays to Italy. Beautiful food, great atmosphere and friendly people.

La Disfida is one of our local Italians restaurants and never disappoints for pizza and pasta. Fresh and authentic!

The lamb pasta dishes were sublime, and the qualiry of the food amazing overall. We couldn't book in advance for 4 people, but on a Wednesday this was ok. Still pleasantly busy with a great anbience. Get there as soon as you can. One of Haberfield's main stars!

As a recommendation we ventured out to Haberfield and were not at all disappointed.It seemed we were the only 4 in the Restaurant that didnt know some one else on that evening. If repeat business counts they have the right formula. We had a varied selection from the menu and for a change everyone was happy with their order. We... More

Consistently good. Salads are innovative and change every few weeks which is great. Pastas are home made and superb! One of my regular favourites.

Food was delicious. We ordered pizza and pasta, both were exceptional! Loved the thin base and simplicity of the ingredients used. The entree however- the garlic pizza, wasn't a great starter. It was dry, slightly burnt and salty. Wouldn't recommend. Overall, was a good night out with friends.

Everything is good here food wine service pizza is really the best around and the menu changes are good. Never ever had anything bad or mediocre from here. Staff are quick and friendly too. The owner Peter is very humble and approachable too

I called the restaurant to make a reservation, but their policy is only for tables of 5 and over. We called into the restaurant on a Sunday night at around 6.30, and were told there was a 15-20 minute wait. Only half of the restaurant downstairs was full and these tables of 4 we were told were all reserved. We... More

Anyone that knows anything about Italian restaurants in Leichardt and Haberfield will at some time mention La Disfida. Why? Because this place has good...everything...that's why. La Disfida is not fine dining and when you go and eat there you know it wasn't meant to be. This is Italian food that gives you such a good feeling. The flavours are authentic,... More

the service was attentive but we hardly noticed, as we were enjoying ourselves so much. the ambience is one of family groups and lots of fiends all chattering, eating and realy enjoying the evening. The food is all fantastic, we shared dish after dish of fabulous smaller starters. The pizzas are the highlight, thin crust and so delicious.
