Aperitivo is our go-to restaurant for good food and wine in an easy atmosphere. Staff are always friendly and helpful, wine list extensive and whilst there is plenty for our carnivore friends there is also always plenty of choice for us vegetarians.

Everything from the service to the food was amazing. The pizzas were to die for. Probably one of the best pizzas in Sydney to be honest. Can't forget to mention their notable wine list! Thank you!

I discovered this restaurant last month and I’m in love! It’s my favourite pizza in Sydney hands down. Please try this place if you’re after authentic Napolitano pizza, you won’t be disappointed! Bellissimo!

Go to Aperitivo if you want authentic Neapolitan pizza. In what used to be little Italy, it’s nice to see a good Italian restaurant. However the reason I’m only given it 4 stars is that the pasta servings are tiny. Don’t mind paying over $30...More

Really nice Italian atmosphere. Loved the traditional Italian waitresses that were enthusiastic and very helpful. Great tasty meals and nice tap Italian beer. It is expensive for pasta, pizza and salad.
