Food was delicious, really tasty with good size portions and fresh vegetables. Service very good. Price right. There were many excellent choices apart from pizza which we didn't try but if the other dishes were anything to go by, pizzas would have been good. Highly recommend this restaurant and would return again and again, but very sadly the owner who... More

Found this place by accident, we were looking for an Italian restaurant but it was closed so walked down the street a bit further and found this one. It's downstairs in a basement. The food was good.

The restaurant is set in a cellar in small pedestrian street off Georges Street, near to Martin Place. So the location is perfect for business meetings. I visited the place on a cold winter day which was good opportunity to venture in some solid Italian food. The pasta dish which I received was huge and real good comfort food. So... More

We had 12 people and everyone was impressed. Vincenzo the owner was lovely providing great personalised service. He even threw in a free dessert and lemonchello shot for our staff member who was...

I've been here several times over the past two years and loved every visit, not to mention the amazing food. This evening my friend and I went in and enjoyed our wines, starters,mains & dessert. The food is always good, no doubt. However at the end of the night I handed my card over and asked the owner of the... More

An Italian restaurant in the city could be considered as just another pasta joint but La Bora provides above average meals with attentive staff. Have only visited a few times but on every occasion food and service is of a high standard. Only positive comments come to mind.

This restaurant is a rarity to find these days.....Good old fashioned Italian food right near Martin Place Serving sizes are great. The restaurant also serve Pizzas which look delicious although haven't tried it yet. Staff are friendly. The only feedback that I have for this restaurant is that you feel a little rushed to order even during quiet times when... 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.
