The food was terrific, the wait staff professional and the bill was a reflection of this, however, they charge a percentage for using either credit or debit cards. It is true that banks charge establishments a fee but so do laundries for cleaning the linen...More

I've just had my second experience at Pendolino. Fantastic service, and I had a delicious black pig gnocchi to start followed by twice roasted duck. Both dishes were matched by their sommelier and it was nothing short of amazing. Can't wait for my next visit....More

I went for dinner with a friend at this hidden gem and absolutely loved it start to finish. The food was incredible with the carpaccio and the slow cooked beef being my favourite. My friend had gnocchi and salmon for main and was equally happy....More

A great setting, wonderful service, great food and wine, what more can I say except book it. Right in the CBD.

Enjoyed a wonderful dinner here. The restaurant is tucked away up upstairs in a shopping mall, outside of which massive road works were going on when we visited, which seems a slighly odd location. Any doubts disappear as soon as you sit down. After a...More

The staff were very patient, and the service was impeccable. This also included their suggestions when it came to selecting the best wine to go with the meal. Food itself was excellent with an enormous variety to be selected from. I look forward to returning...More

After hearing only good things about this Sydney 'institution' we experienced a well below par meal. Our table was in an awkward spot next to the service area. My husband had the bright lights of the register screen shinning in his face and I was...More

Hi there. Thanks for your feedback. We're so sorry you didn't have a great experience with us. If you email us directly at danielle@pendolino.com.au we'd be more than happy to look into the issue in greater detail. Have a great weekend.

Wine selection is amazing. Pasta is their strength. I'd recommend doing main size pasta. The ravioli is to die for. The vegetarian lasagne ...WOW. I have to say their other mains I have tried were not as stand out for me as the pasta is....More

The food was really good, but I found the location/room to be unappealing. Upstairs in a mall is not my idea of charming.

This restaurant, sister restaurant to La Rosa, can be found on floor 2 of the Strand Arcade off the Mall in Sydney. Impeccable service, helpful sommelier. We started with an appetiser of stuffed olives and a basket of bread served with three types of olive...More

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

Sorry it has taken so long to reply. Have only just noticed the message and you have probably already been there by now. Anything from smart casual to elegant is fine.
