We stumbled across the cosy ambience of Pendolino and couldn't resist the temptation to be shown to a table after a busy Saturday morning shopping in the Strand. The service, the food, the wine, the ambience were all superb - I would actually travel back...More

Fabulous food with a great atmosphere. So professional in their service and their way of hosting their guests. Their food presentation along with their flavoursom dishes makes a real experience not to be missed.

Why is the breakdown of the restaurants IT our fault but the receptionist with her sniff and attitude when she could not find our online booking certainly made it seem that way. Anyway we managed to get a table in that two thirds empty restaurant...More

Lunch.... Dark, moody, packed with business folk with a budget, this is a posh Italian with great food, great wine, and decent service by non Italian people from what I could see. Can be a tad noisy, but it's worth it for the food.

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
