Anniversary treat - we went the Trip through Italy option without the accompanying wines. Well paced delivery of the dishes. Loved the Anniversary Club special of free oysters and glass of Prosecco for two on arrival! Efficient & friendly staff explaining the courses made for a special evening in a lovely location on the water!

Last night we had the degustation menu at Ormeggio's on the Spit. I have had some pretty amazing meals in my life but I can honestly say it was up there with the very best. It was Italian food and the third course (after oysters and veal tartare) was baccala done in a seafood foam. Being the long standing wife... More

Second time for us in less than 8 months at this restaurant. Definitely a wonderful experience for us. We have tried both the 'short trip' and 'trip through' Italy menu. They are both amazing so depending on the size of your tummy and time, you will not be disappointed. Located on Spit overlooking Middle Harbour and Pearl Harbour. The view... More

It is a degustation menu but they do have a kids menu which our boys chose from. Its not cheap but the food was delicious well presented and just about right in terms of volume and courses.

Went on a Sunday night to have the Chef's blind tasting menu. Delicious! Innovative Italian. Servers were charming and really made you feel comfortable. Although the bathroom was a little unkept and there were no clean hand towels.

We went there for work annual event lunch and everything from start to end was great 👍🏻 The quality of food was excellent and service provided by friendly patient staff was remarkable. The trip through Italy degustation with matching wines definitely worth trying. Highly recommended for special events:)

Ormeggio always comes to mind when I'm asked to recommend somewhere to friends visiting Sydney. It may not have the glitz or wow factor of a harbour bridge/opera house view, but I believe it is a far more quintessentially Sydney experience. A gorgeous, understated dining room with a beautiful view of the marina and it's shiny white yachts bobbing in... More

I found out about the chef's tasting menu on Sundays and was immediately intrigued. Although some of the ingredients were repeated twice during the courses the overall experience was great, staff was friendly and the location just exquisite.

Description
Ormeggio at The Spit specialises in contemporary Italian cuisine with a focus on Chef Alessandro's home region, Lombardia. The spectacular water views are matched by the sensational food and acclaimed wine list. Ormeggio at The Spit has Two Chef Hats in the SMH Good Food Guide and is in Gourmet Traveller's Top 100 Australian restaurants. For the full Ormeggio experience we highly recommend trying our degustation menu with matching wines. Right next door Ormeggio has a more casual sister restaurant, "Chiosco By Ormeggio" - an Italian street food inspired, casual diner. BYO and barefoot friendly, don't forget to visit Chiosco while in the area!
