We were there during a nice weekend in Sydney and we had an amazing lunch. Been at Pendolino several times and always found it awesome. Food is very nice, service too. A bit expensive but totally worth it. Vibe and atmosphere also excellent.

The location is great and the food is very authentic and varied, the wine list was extensive and reasonable priced. In one of the review it mentioned that the portions were on the small side, the portions we received were definitely on the generous side. The service wasn't quit up to the standard of the food and location, but it... More

Great city location in The Strand Arcade. Fine, white linen, modern Italian cuisine. Stunning entree of marinated salmon and tuna. Very good mains, both choosing slow cooked options. You need a side of greens and they were a bit over dressed to provide that nice fresh accompaniment. Cheese plate was great with 4 cheeses to select from. If you take... More

I love Pendolino's as a restaurant for a special treat since we are normally gluten free and don't eat pasta. However, if I'm going to be naughty and treat myself, this is where I would go for pasta. Handmade every day fresh. The pasta is like nothing you've ever tasted before. I've been blown away by the food every time... More

My wife and I enjoyed a special dinner at Pendolino before seeing a show at The State Theatre. We had 2 courses with a glass of wine with each course which rounded off to about $260.00 so not an inexpensive dinner. But it was worth it for the special food, wine and service. My wife had a vegetarian dish Eggplant... More

We love this place when visiting Sydney. The food is terrific, the staff brilliant and the ambience great. All this comes together to make for a great experience. We started out on the verandah as we booked late and then they moved us inside when a table became available, which was hugely appreciated even though the verandah is fine. We... More

I've been to Pendolino's twice recently and found the overall food quality to be very good, but for the price, I would expect a consistent level of excellent quality and taste. The first time was excellent (with a delicious spaghetti bolognese) but the second time was patchy with a seafood pasta being too salty, the eggplant tart not particularly tasty... More

A shopping centre restuarant even if it is the Strand Arcade..a slightly odd setting? Well have no fear this place is great. It has a fantastic atmosphere and the food is modern but with strong links to its Italian roots. Superbly prepared and the service was also outstanding. Highly recommended

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
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 or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
