It was bustling with people when i arrived, staff were running around like crazy serving people and ensuring everyone was happy, it was great!

I cam here with 6 people and had a good feed of pizza and a load of beers.

The place is great, inside and outside seating, and the staff were attentive and helpful, never having to wait for a drink once finished!

The pizzas were great! Thanks! The arincini (spelling?) balls were superb too!

Funky pizza bar on the corner in surrey hills! Keep it up!

Vacanza is a small corner restaurant in a great location, it looks very simple and unassuming, but I have eaten here twice now and both times really enjoyed it. The service is genuinely warm and friendly. We arrived before it was open for the night but the staff were only to happy to give us a seat and a glass of water as it was a hot evening. We chose a selection of the buffalo arancini that this restaurant is renowned for, and 3 pizzas, including the truffle pizza ('Pizza Bianche La Vacanza'), which is exquisite. Also a rocket salad. Everything was perfect. If you're looking for an old-school Italian pizza night out or a 90s wood-fire experience this is not it - but you will find modern pizza making that compares with some of the best in Italy, LA and other world cities. Love this place and can't wait to come back on our next visit to Sydney!

Congratulations, very good service, nice staff! They know how to make an Italian pizza! Pretty good chilli oil. I'll be back for sure.

This tiny restaurant was packed but as bumbling tourists we were lucky to find a table for three. The menu is varied but the pizza looked so good we had to try it and are glad we did. We tried three different kinds - never tasted anything like them elsewhere. And, amazingly, the staff made you feel special and welcome. Service was super efficient. My highest praise goes to the proprietor and staff!

The pizza here is really authentic.Watch the dough being made and try the speciality fresh burrata.A lively,noisy atmosphere- very family friendly and reasonable prices .Two large pizzas,large green salad and 500ml of Pinot Grigio was $79 AU.Tables are quite close together and the room is fairly small so you may need to wait if you have 't reserved but it's worth it.service is friendly and attentive.
It will be a long remembered pizza!
