Restaurant no longer exists. Closed because of building alacerations. Pity we used it frequently. There's a new place During in the courtyard. Not bad but not Italian. Nearest good one is Apetito.

My partner and I dined there last Wednesday evening and have not been there for several years. The meals were very tasty, I chose Brains as an entree with scallops wrapped in bacon for my second. My partner had garlic bread and then prawn dish with pasta which he said was deliciious. It's good to see that some things never... More

Saturday night - Just before 6:00 with two grandchildren - restaurant quiet. Ten minutes later, by the time the food arrived, the restaurant was 'humming'. Young, Old, Coupes, larger parties. This surely must tell a story about reasonably priced and tasty food. The kids enjoyed their pizza and granny and gramps also have a good feed. We have been there... More

We ordered pizza, but , since I prefer to eat always CALABRESE this one here is not to my liking. Service is quick and friendly, the price is reasonable and... More

This is a reasonably priced Italian restaurant on George Street, heart of Sydney city and the up market shopping district. Being vegetarian, pizza usually is a good option and I was not disappointed. Good selections of toppings and all reasonably priced given that the joint in CBD. Quick and friendly service too.

Looking at the " specials " menu most items had the same accompliment . In retrospect maybe we should have stuck with a... More

We stopped in to grab a pizza to take back to our motel, we sat and waited for about 15 mins and then it was ready. We both really enjoyed it and the base was awesome, as was the garlic pizza.

Great fresh, tasty Italian food! Service was fast and friendly, the food was delightful with a wide selection. Location is great just on George street and a short walk from the harbour.

Staying in The Rocks

Neighbourhood Profile
The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and sailors from the old nation. As the oldest neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone streets host more than 100 heritage sites and buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney, Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi “ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The weekend markets at the Rocks are where you can find local artists' hand-made souvenirs, organic food and designer jewelry in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To enjoy some of the best Australian and international contemporary art, the MCA museum is open every day and select evenings. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, be sure to save energy to dance the night away at the area's many late night entertainment venues.
