The a la carte menu is excellent and the flavours in the meals are so good. The wine list is quality and the sommelier provides good advice. This is one of our favourite restaurants in Sydney. It is convenient for us as we mostly stay in the city. I have heard that it's difficult to get Italian cooking wrong. But... More

We have been in Pendolino before and always had a great time, so I had no hesitation to book again for our 30th Wedding Anniversary last night. From the first second to the last, the staff made us feel special. The food - as usual - was unbelievable, My wife has a few food allergies, they catered for her 100%.Chris... More

4 of us went to Pendolino for a quick lunch. Sooooo perfect! Staff were excellent and attentive and the food super delicious. The outstanding dishes were the tortellini, parpadelle and the tomato and burratta salad. Great italian food..

I have been hearing of Pendolino for a few years and had been given a bottle of their beautiful olive oil but I have now moved from Sydney so had not made it there to dine. At last, some wonderful friends invited me to lunch at Pendolino and it was well worth the wait. Up on the top level of... More

Delighted to discover this restaurant - food was very good, the service excellent and helpful with their advice with regard to our choices. Luckily the restau was not full so we had an empty table on each side of our table. Not sure how it would be if the restau had been full.

There is no competition when it comes to Italian cuisine and service. With the dark and sexy lighting and amazing service coupled with what can only be described as MasterChef cuisine this is an all round winning option. Lunch is my preferred dining option. It all Just works like a finely oiled machine. Bravo pendolino

Recommended by local business colleagues and what a recommendation! After a bottle of house champagne we chose the 5 course tasting menu. My colleagues added the oyster dish. All great but the best was the pasta dish..sublime. Washed down with an Amerone. Super service and nice ambience.

I'll start by saying at the food was excellent. Portion sizes were good and the flavours, presentation and timing were excellent. The atmosphere of the restaurant was wonderful - a combination of relaxed, yet vibrant - if that makes sense. My only negatives were a significant delay in service for a glass of wine with my main dish. At the... 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.
