Lovely meal. Buffalo cheese is a standout with sides. Quite enjoyable meal. Lovely atmosphere. Bit of a wait to get a table. They don't take bookings. Definitely will be back.

Service was a bit slow. We had some amazing gnocchi with napolitana sauce. But Cacio e Pepe that they brought us in the big cheese shape and they served us was a smalll portion and pasta was dry. Place was full and pretty noisy. Not many things to choose on the menu.

Heard a lot about this place and finally had the opportunity to visit. Since we were a large group we got to share on all the menu had to offer. The menu is limited and straight forward, but it is really nice. The burrata and jamon as well as the other cheese varieties and salami were a great entree. The... More

I have been to this restaurant before and was so excited to take my 21 year old son with me to try the pasta that I remember being so awesome. Despite a line of people on the pavement we were seated quicky. But this is where the service ended. Our olives were never bought to the table and both pasta... More

We had been recommended this restaurant by friends living in Sydney, has a small but delicious cheese based menu. We loved the products which were extremely fresh, we chose the gnocchi for main which was great choice! Great rock chilled summer atmosphere.

It's not that big so be on time, make a reservation or eat at the bar. The staff is friendly and the food is good. Price is ok. Tip: try the Cacio e Pepe (spaghetti made in cheese)

Place was extremely small and was claustrophobic inside, they sat three of us on a table the size of a3 paper. Food was nothing to brave about especially even the spaghetti was cooked either in the morning or the day before. At the end they couldn't wait for us to go and charge us bill as quickly as possible.

I love this place! The food is consistently great! They always have a few specials just to mix it up a bit. The meat and cheeses are fantastic but the highlight is the gnocchi which is a buffalo gnocchi in a napolitana sauce and the cacio e pepe which is spaghetti in salt, pepper, olive oil, parsley in a pecorino...

Staying in Darlinghurst

Neighbourhood Profile
Darlinghurst
Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney, Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and 1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of Australia, where gay and lesbian-friendly venues feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning. Vintage lovers flock to Crown Street, and small designer boutiques can be found along Victoria and Bourke Streets. Dining in Darlinghurst is a gastronomic adventure. Food from all over the world is on the menu, from American ribs to tapas, sushi to gelato and every ethnicity in between.
