Affordable prices and reasonable quality for a wide range of real Italian dishes. Not excellent service as fine dining but casual lunch for a touch of Italy in middle of Australia. If you are really looking for high level of Italian cooking, choose other restaurants. But this one is perfect for informal brunch or an afternoon snack!

Had dinner here, we both had pizza. Pizzas were excellent, about as close to real Italian pizza as I've tasted in Australia. If this place was local I'd definitely visit again and again. The only downside is it's located inside a shopping mall so the atmosphere suffers greatly.

This is a busy cafe that is on the upper level of the QVB building. There are some table inside and others along the balcony beside the shops. Ours was located near the public loos so there isa constant flow of people passing by - Warning!!! Watch your handbag! The waiter took our order and when the food arrived my... More

Stopped for a smallish dinner - we shared a pancetta white pizza and kingfish carpaccio. Both were really delicious. Pair with a nice Italian white and it's a great meal! Staff was super friendly!

We went here for dinner last Thursday not sure what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised. Great food, authentic Italian. Caters for all ages. Meals were huge. Wait staff were incredible, especially when we had to leave mid meal with a sick child. They just promptly put all the food into ' doggy' bags, got the bill quickly and set... More

Exceptionally rude service by the waitress who seemed to have a problem from the moment we arrived, right up to the problem with the bill. Clearly just trying to gouge the tourists. Avoid it -- you get the same views and service with a smile at Yama, the Japanese restaurant just up a floor.

This is such a lovely place to dine or to have a coffee or even a nice glass of wine. The menu is authentic Italian with a Sydney flare! Pizzas are delicious and perfect for sharing. The desserts are also authentic Italian. I love the ambience of this place! You can sit quietly inside or have a balcony view of... More

My first visit to Vanto and definitely not my last. Located on the 1st level of the QVB ( Town hall end ) tables available inside and outside around the balcony area. Plenty of staff around so service was good. There were 7 people in my group and we all had something different. Everybody enjoyed what they had ordered. All... More

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.
