Simply put - this has to be one of the best restaurants I've visited in many years. After being warmly welcomed, and thoroughly briefed on the menu by a very entertaining and charming waiter, we began with excellent wines from a well-sourced list. Beginning with the baked olives, breads and cured meats we started to realise what a great choice... More

Difficult to decide what to have, everything sounded so good, and sold so enthusiastically by the charming waiter. A busy place on a Monday night, and they chose some delicious red wine for us.

This is a perfect place with charming Italian staff and authentic Italian food. A well designed menu with something special for all tastes- meat, seafood and vegetarian and the wine list is original. It is deservedly famous for freshly made pasta and the pappardelle with lamb ragu was delicious and the signature dessert was quite simply divine (see the pic... More

Wondering past and decided to try it on a Sunday evening with work colleague during business trip. One course each + 1 glass wine. I had pappardelle with lamb ragu and he had the venison. Pappardelle was homemade and, happily, ragu was pulled lamb not minced lamb. Very lightly seasoned, which was perfect for me but I guess others may... More

As title suggest I was deeply impressed with the pasta. It appears to be all house made. How DO they make the sauce stick to the pasta so well? I have visited several times. Atmosphere is very nice and the service is excellent.

Small restaurant with a romantic touch, you will enjoy the atmosphere going in couple. The menu is small but you will find happiness in any of the pasta dishes! And we recommend strongly to taste the dessert cremino al ciocolato! Delicious

If you are in Sydney and want to experience authentic Italian food you must come here! Plus, the restaurant is located in Darlinghurst, a very nice neighborhood that was walking distance from our apartment. We found this restaurant after doing some research on Trip Advisor before our trip. It was our first night in Sydney and we were excited to... More
