This place is just astounding. From the friendly and courteous staff to the mind blowing degustation menu - not to mention the unveiling of each meal! And do NOT get me started on the wines; the reds were particularly moorish... My friends and I had the time of our lives and I cannot wait to go back. Definitely do the... More

Celebrated into the NYE with a couple of close friends (on their third visit) and was simply amazed by the food. If there's a better dining experience in Australia I would be surprised. We experienced the "long" journey through Italy (9 dishes) and were mesmerised by each successive dish. Standouts were the vitello tonnato (I believe a signature dish) and... More

Two chef hatted restaurant Ormeggio at The Spit Marina is a great hidden gem:) This year we celebrated Terrys Birthday at an outstanding establishment of fine food:) The prices are reasonable although the matching juices for the degustation is $50, I guess I find that intriguing and wonder how great these juices would be??

We went for a birthday dinner on a sunday and had the 'Chefs menu'. The service was impeccable and the food really really delicious, beautifully presented and the perfect amount.

A peacefully pleasant oasis, midst an exquisite outlook. Hugely hospitable staff. and the menu.... Divine. Delicious morsels from either the degustation or the general 'choose 2 or 3' menu.

Having had a degustation just the previous night at another hatted restaurant in the city, hands down Ormeggio is the stand out! Exceptional service and overwhelmingly beautiful food. I can't wait to go back.

We had our company Christmas lunch here a couple of weeks ago and were lucky enough to secure the "Mable room", a section that is separated from the rest of the restaurant by a metal mesh curtain with a beautiful large marble table.

Such a pleasure to discover / re-discover Italy with Ormeggio's beautiful, surprising and tasty plate... We have been to a significant number of fine dining restaurants in France and Italy. Being French, good food and good wines are a must for us. And Ormeggio delivers for sure. We can't refrain from coming every 2-3 months. Nice and efficient service. The... More

Ormeggio is located on the Spit. It offers pleasant but unremarkable views, mainly of parked yachts. The decor is virtually non-existent, best summed up as bland modern. The menu is quite confusing and the waiters are not good at explaining it. Essentially, you have the choice of a fixed degustation menu of bits and pieces or you can choose from... More

Hi soler97, It's a shame to hear that you were not completely impressed after your experience at Ormeggio. Being situated right on the jetty of a marina we do share the space with the local boat owners so the water views come with a few boats! The word ormeggio directly translates to marina or mooring. The menu can be a... More

Description
Ormeggio at The Spit specialises in contemporary Italian cuisine with a focus on Chef Alessandro's home region, Lombardia. The spectacular water views are matched by the sensational food and acclaimed wine list. Ormeggio at The Spit has Two Chef Hats in the SMH Good Food Guide and is in Gourmet Traveller's Top 100 Australian restaurants.For the full Ormeggio experience we highly recommend partaking of our degustation menu with matching wines. Right next door Ormeggio has a more casual sister site, "Chiosco By Ormeggio" - an Italian street food inspired, more casual diner. BYO and barefoot friendly, don't forget to visit Chiosco while in the area!
