Great welcoming, friendly and personalised service, the owner makes you feel at home. They serve traditional delicious italian food, beautifully presented. Don't miss the fettucine!! their signature dish. Wine was good with a nice italian selection as well. Pricey but definitely worth the experience!

From the minute you walk in the door we felt good, from the greeting to the smiles on everyone's faces it was fabulous. The food is incredible, the service is amazing, the upstairs room is fabulous. Couldn't fault it. Not cheap- try it for a special occasion.

The thing that stands out at Buon Ricordo is the attention given to the quality of produce and ingredients. You are transported back to Italy from the moment you walk in the front door. Armando makes you feel like you are family and he provides theatre which is part of the appeal of the dining experience. Every mouthful of every... More

...for a long time this has been at the top end of the Sydney dining scene. Its a serious place; quality food, skilled and gentle service, a super choice of wine (and expert advice), and of course the presence of one of the best chefs in Sydney. The traditional Italian style has gradually evolved with dishes reflecting the newer styles... More

We were a group of 6 people who are real foodies and Buon Ricordo did not let us down! The food was simply stunning and so full of flavour! The service was so personal and all I can say is that I cannot wait to go back. Thank you Armando and staff!

This has to be the best pasta I've ever eaten, it was so so fresh. Its such a nice restaurant too, it was really nice ambiance. I had a carbonara and i think they made it specially for me, it was amazing and to die for, especially the fresh cracked egg on top. I cant wait to come back again.

Okay this is a very related review but after having been out to a few more than average Italian restaurants over the last few weeks I feel like this place really deserves a write up. Service is classy and understated. Setup is very nice and the food, which is the most important of course, is outstanding. I am still dreaming... More

We had a relaxed Saturday lunch at Buon Ricordo with a group of friends and could not have been more pleased. The service was very professional but also attentive and friendly. We decided to have the degustation menu and enjoyed every dish, delicious and just the right portion sizes. The Fettuccine with cream and parmesan, topped with a fried truffle... More
