Delicious, excellent, outstanding,
Two days later I'm still thinking about the food. The crisp pita bread and honey yoghurt a must as a starter, the slowly baked lamb and pork incredible to say the least. All dishes were excellent. Will be back for sure.

Drinks a bit pricey but worth it.

Italian food served up with a view!
This restaurant is one of the best Italian kitchens in Sydney. The food and wine are outstanding and the wait staff will anticipate your every need. Its really worth a trip you wont regret it! Must have the stuffed Zucchini flowers and the PANE CARASAU Sardinian bread –buffalo ricotta – truffle honey –Italian olives. This restaurant has an energy that makes the entire experience extremely memorable.

This lovely restaurant is set high on a hill overlooking Sydney Harbour Bridge and the harbour. It's perfect for any occasion, day or night, indoor or outdoor. 14 of us had a reunion dinner and everyone is still raving about their experience. The decor is clever, use of lots of timber which looks great with the old sandstone, wine racks are creative but the best bits are the food and service.
Available for groups is a set menu with choice of four from five entrees, individual main course and dessert but starting with mozarella in honey truffle sauce and absolutely delicious warmed choice of olives with crispbread or variety of breads. An excellent way to stimulate taste-buds. Favourite entree was Burrata mozarella with proscuitto and red cabbage salad followed by zuchini flowers, carpaccio then stuffed calamari. . Great mix of flavours. Can recommend slow cooked lamb shoulder, absolutely melt in your mouth. BYO and licenced. 14 of us took BYO and by the time glasses needed filling, the staff had already worked out who was drinking what and poured the appropriate wines to each one of us. Very attentive. The food is traditional Italian, great ingredients, cooked so well and good sized portions. The staff are very, very friendly, professional, they don't hover over the table and very well mannered. Feels like being in Italy except for the magnificent views! Want to go back and sample some pasta, I bet it will be perfect.

Dropped in on the off chance on Easter Sunday shortly after midday and managed to be seated adjacent to the window with its expansive city and harbour views. My entree of zucchini flowers deep fried and my wife's buffalo mozzarella with prosciutto and poached pear were both full of flavour and perfectly presented. Our mains of scallops for me and pasta with spanner crab were equally exquisite. Service was astute with prompt and efficient delivery of the courses. There is a wide selection of European, mainly Italian, wines with a small selection of Australian for the unadventurous.
It was generally as good if not better than any of the restaurants we have ever encountered in Italy and far superior to its Eastern suburbs cousins. A fabulous dining experience.

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
