Popped in for lunch with my wife early this week. Beautifully created Italian. I cant fault Pendolino. Our entrees,mains & desert were all standouts. Great wine list for all tastes & pockets . Service is super friendly & highly professional. One of Sydney's better restaurants!!

We had dinner here: palpettine, eggplant tart, pork belly all were excellent. The dessert millefeuille au chocolat was very good as well. The restaurant has a nice Italian atmosphere. The service is good, but a little nformal. However it is rather expensive.

A work friend of mine had recommended the cafe way back in 2012. I decided to try it recently to get away from the crowds of Pitt St. I have always loved the Strand Arcade and to alight the elevator right at Pendolinos Cafe was...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.
