Went here for a splash-out Christmas dinner with a friend and very glad we did! The food was outstanding. We opted for the set four course menu with accompanying wine. This included salmon and scallop tartare, Amalfi gnocchi, mushroom pie and eclairs. Everything was fantastic!...More

Arriving with overseas business guests we were whisked to our table and immediately the service attention and old fashioned structure was apparent. My guests were taken back with the quality of the pasta and the wine we were recommended by the somallier was fantastic. We...More

We had a dinner here last night & ordered a degustation menu. It wasn’t good. Not at all!!! I started thinking... who hired their staff? Who trained them? How do they make their food? I mean I know they cook it but, seriously? Who is...More

Rather slow service at the start but order eventually taken. Offered proscecco aperitif, which was good. Nice starters of spinach ravioli, which came with (intentionally burnt but not apparently so) melted butter, also sage and artisan cheese, the two latter superfluous. The lamb polpettine came...More

Having eaten at Pendolino's several times before always makes us want to return for yet another wonderful delicious experience, because that's what this restaurant offers, an experience. The " bongiorno " on the phone, to the meet and greet at the restaurant does not disappoint,...More

At the upper echelon of Sydney’s Italian restaurants sits The Restaurant Pendolino, taking up a commanding position at one end of The Strand Arcade. From the moment you step out of the lift, you get the feeling that your evening is in safe hands. You’re...More

A really great find on the top floor of the Strand Arcade in the heart of Sydney. Superb food, superb service. However this is a place for special days or nights out. It is extremely expensive. But if you want one of the best Italian...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens

Sorry it has taken so long to reply. Have only just noticed the message and you have probably already been there by now. Anything from smart casual to elegant is fine.
