The restaurant had an interesting entrance via the old wooden lift at the end of the old Strand Arcade. We were greeted but then left standing whilst the lady who'd greeted us attended to people who'd apparently arrived before us, although we didn't see them...More

Many of the staff have an authentic Italian accent and the restaurant menu supports this. The servings were small but sufficient, fresh and full of flavour. The value was good.

Food was nice but the waiters were more interested in setting the tables for the next day. Three times we had to ask to order, coffee, the bill... They were not the slightest bit interested in looking after you!

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
