We really enjoyed this restaurant - the service was immaculate and instantly made us very comfortable. I had the duck pasta which was extremely good, my partner the chicken and leek pie, also very good. The sour dough bread and olive oil and balsamic very nice. We chose the ladies who hunt Riesling - perfect. Tiramisu not the best but... More

Lovely restaurant with a great menu. All 3 meals we had were outstanding! The service was ok. I had the beef cheeks which were outstanding! The osso bucco was delicious too. As was the prawn pasta. I would definitely recommend onesta for a dinner in bowral

Took the office to Onesta Cucina 2 years ago, took my partner there 1 year ago and took some friends there 3 months ago. Just sensational food, service and ambience. The warmed olives to start - lovely (all agreed) the garlic prawns just special and my fillet with anchovy butter unbelievable. Could only just jam it all in. I'm hooked.

After reading the reviews my husband and I thought we would try this restaurant. The food was good but not worth the price. I probably wouldn't eat here again.

The food was excellent but the poor service upon walking into the restaurant and the hot heating dropped the rating a notch. When we walked in and asked for a table starting that we didn’t have a reservation, the waiter seemed a bit perturbed, even though it was a Tuesday night, the restaurant was about 40% and all bar one...

We often travel through Bowral, and have tried many restaurants. However, we have now found a gem, with a large and superb menu. We were recommended the house-made gnocchi with shredded veal and the most delicious gremolata. We have tried gnocchi all over the world, and this was the best, just so light melting in your mouth. We finished with... More

We had a delicious meal and great service on Saturday night. We were enjoying a girls weekend and chose Onesta based on the trip advisor reviews. All the locals we spoke to also raved about it. The restaurant was full including a large booking and the service and food were excellent. Three of us started with the mackerel. It was... More

I'm writing this review on behalf of four residents of Bowral who have been going to Onesta for some time. Sadly over time we have all noticed the deterioration of the quality of food. Last week it was so poor that we all decided that it was the last time for us. On talking to other well travelled locals their... More
