The second time at this restaurant wow wow. The view the service the food 7 start. There is a reason this place is no 1 on TripAdvisor. The place has it all. It's family like, quirky, very attentive service and the food is to die for.

What a wonderful way to celebrate a special day. Degustation lunch, water view table, superb service and every dish a delight to the eye and sensation for the palate. Everything beautifully and inovately presented. Matching wines if you desire enhance the food wonderfully. A special place for a special occasion.

Celebration lunch in a party of 8. We chose the Trip Through Italy degustation menu with matching wines. Fabulous creative menu. Attentive staff with good knowledge of menu and wines. Fantastic location sitting right on the waters edge surrounded by boats. Suckling pig was divine. Perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

I have dined at Ormeggio a few times over the years. Modern Italian at it's best. Alessandro Pavoni is a genius. Every dish is stunning. My favourite? Can't choose one, but the truffle risotto is at the top of the list.

I have been there with my girlfriend and we took the degustation menu, our table was perfect and all the waiters were really professional. I love this kind of food, the flavours are simple and so fresh! Great location, perfect for a Sunday lunch for any occasion. So far best Italian (in fine dining) in Sydney for me!!

We went to Ormeggio for our anniversary dinner. It was a set menu of six courses with matching wines. Whoa. It all worked so well! The sherry with the consume. Who would have thought? This was a standout dinner in a fabulous setting and outstanding service. Well done.

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!
