I love this place! The food is consistently great! They always have a few specials just to mix it up a bit. The meat and cheeses are fantastic but the highlight is the gnocchi which is a buffalo gnocchi in a napolitana sauce and the cacio e pepe which is spaghetti in salt, pepper, olive oil, parsley in a pecorino...

My husband and I went for our anniversary dinner and we were blown away by the quality of the food. This place is the best example of a restaurant doing a small menu, and doing it exceptionally well. It was well priced, and everything we tried on the menu was delicious.The seating is very close together, however it was a... More

Good food but a little pricy for the quantity they give you. Crinitis have bigger portions than this place. The price of the wine is ridiculous, they don't even have muscato. All in all I prob would not go back but definitely a good place to visit. The seats are close to each other and there isn't really much room... More

Buffalo Dining is one of those restaurants which bring you the traditional Aussie touch. The food here is amazing with a very friendly staff. They have an amazing Wine List. The Gnocchi is mouth watering. Do try the pasta they make on the cheese. Its an amazing idea and its delicious.

My friend recommended this Italian place and we were impressed a lot. We had 2 types of cheese, 4 side dishes, 1 meat, 2 pasta followed by dessert with 2 bottles of wine. We enjoyed all of it. Fresh and tasty. It is not a fancy restaurant but it was great experience. Extremely popular with great vibes. The service was... More

The food here is amazing! I have pretty much tried everything on the menu and can't complain about anything - the gnocchi is one of my favorites (close to the best I've had). The meats are melt in the mouth quality and the cheeses are a fresh as can be. The service and atmosphere are also great - only downside... More

This place is an absolute MUST for anyone exploring Sydney. Definitely the best food we had of the entire 4 weeks we were visiting Australia. The Gnocchi is simply amazing, melts in your mouth and soooo tasty! The spaghetti in the pecorino wheel was just a dream for me (a huge cheese lover), the flavour was amazing! Such a relaxed...

Me and my friends had dinner at Buffalo and we all loved it. Service and food gets thumbs up. This place is small and so it can be really busy but the cosy atmosphere worked for us really well.. my favourite was gnocchi which disappeared on my mouth. I would definitely recommend this place especially if you are a prosciutto... More

We tried going early on a Friday but there was already a 1-1.5 hour wait by 6pm. We eventually get seated after an hour-ish wait. Food was definitely great and the cheese is the star of the restaurant. The food, especially the Cacio E Pepe is definitely meant for sharing. I wish they would have a bigger space and would...

My partner and I had our date night here, and from start to finish we had an outstanding experience. The check-in/wait list process was awesome! They quote your wait and give you a ring when your table is ready. HOWEVER, as soon as you check-in they text you with a link that allows you to watch, in real time, when... More
