Restaurant no longer exists. Closed because of building alacerations. Pity we used it frequently. There's a new place During in the courtyard. Not bad but not Italian. Nearest good one is Apetito.

Saturday night - Just before 6:00 with two grandchildren - restaurant quiet. Ten minutes later, by the time the food arrived, the restaurant was 'humming'. Young, Old, Coupes, larger parties. This surely must tell a story about reasonably priced and tasty food. The kids enjoyed their pizza and granny and gramps also have a good feed. We have been there... More

We been here once before and the only reason why we dine again is because, we happened to be around the area and just decided to try one more time. We ordered pizza, but , since I prefer to eat always CALABRESE this one here is not to my liking. Service is quick and friendly, the price is reasonable and... More

This is a reasonably priced Italian restaurant on George Street, heart of Sydney city and the up market shopping district. Being vegetarian, pizza usually is a good option and I was not disappointed. Good selections of toppings and all reasonably priced given that the joint in CBD. Quick and friendly service too.

We stopped in to grab a pizza to take back to our motel, we sat and waited for about 15 mins and then it was ready. We both really enjoyed it and the base was awesome, as was the garlic pizza.

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.
