Great food, great ambiance! Extensive menu. The staff were very welcoming and accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble and our glasses were always topped up. The toilets were immaculate too- always a good sign!

This is the second time we have dined at Onesta with the same group of friends. The menu is beyond comparison and we simply couldn't select any dishes. We asked our waitress (who was brilliant and deserves a raise! Think it was Nicole but can't be sure!) to just ask the chef to surprise us. What followed over 3 courses... More

Could not rate this restaurant highly enough. Fantastic selection and array of Italian cuisine, lengthy wine list and the hospitality was of a standard that was rare and refreshing. Would visit again without a second thought.

We have been to Onesta Restaurant several times now and walk out completely satisfied. The food is wonderful and the service is beyond compare. There is a great selection of wines to suit most palates and pockets. When in Bowral and looking for an up market venue Onesta will not disappoint you.

We booked in late...hadn't realised it was Valentine's Day. We were welcomed and made to feel at home. The restaurant was very busy but the meals came out at just the right speed...allowing you to have a starting drink and peruse the extensive wine list. Including a reasonable selection of by the glass choices. 2 entrees for my wife and... More

A serendipitous find as we were just overnighting in this area Excellent food, friendly staff and although very busy the noise level was not a problem. Would highly recommend.
