Italian Restaurants in Sydney
Sydney does Italian food and wine really well, and if you enjoy these familiar Mediterranean flavours with a twist, you’re in the right place.
Eat out in the suburb of Leichhardt for a true taste of Sydney’s ‘Little Italy’. Leichhardt’s Norton Street is lined with Italian restaurants, such as Grappa Ristorante e Bar and Aperitivo, where you’ll find antipasto, pizza, pasta and more. Leichhardt also boasts its own Italian Forum complex, also lined with cafes and restaurants.
In the historic Strand Arcade in the Sydney CBD, Pendolino serves up delicious regional Italian food with great ambience. Also in the city, Uccello is a hatted restaurant in the Ivy complex. Ventuno in Walsh Bay and The Italian Village in The Rocks present your pasta and panini with great harbourside views.
Dine out at Buzo Trattoria in Woollahra for a relaxed vibe and tempting modern fare. Try the lemon gelato whisked with prosecco – the perfect refreshing summer treat! Nearby in Paddington, Buon Ricordo is another favourite. Head north to Ormeggio at the Spit in Mosman for Italian cuisine that pushes the boundaries or check out North Bondi Italian in Bondi for a great meal with amazing views back across the world famous beach.
