Fantastic small restaurant great for a function up to 20 people you will have it to yourself and the location is fantastic looking over the harbor. Food and service was great and the owner was always making sure we were happy. Little known Sydney Gem

Not the first time I have been to this restaurant and it most definitely wont be the last! Every time my partner and I dine here we thoroughly enjoy it. The food is great and the service attentive.

We were there with a group of friends for dinner. It was very crowded and we were stuck at a table beside the column (a bit tight). The service was erratic with the bill the fastest to arrive, above everything else. The food was good but nothing exciting. We all enjoyed the meal but nothing to write home about..

La Cucinetta is a difficult dining experience to review. Expectations were high as the restaurant boasts 2 chef's hats, and it didn't disappoint. But then it didn't excite either. There wasn't that something special. Despite being a busy Saturday evening the service was good and the food enjoyable, even if the menu was quite limited. We had beef carpaccio and zucchini flowers for starters, and crab linguini and a seafood "soup" special, all of which were tasty. We asked the sommelier to choose a dry white wine for us, and he chose a sensibly priced very pleasant wine that complemented the meals. Great views, and a pleasant evening. Value for money?.....Just.

everyone writes about the gunbarrel views of the coathanger - so i won't. this is a small italian restaurant with a focus on southern italian (sardinian) regional cuisine. think neighbourhood bistro feel but very well organised/efficient.
perhaps a tad too efficient - waitstaff seem to come around a bit too often to give you that rushed feeling. perhaps it wasn't intended but is a consequence of the small space and the open kitchen atmosphere.
food is great and well presented. really enjoyed all the dishes we sampled. appreciated the focus on regional cuisine - we need more restaurants like this in Sydney.

verdict: definitely worth trying out if you are into regional italian cuisine (ala "Pilu")
