La Disfida had been one of the best restaurants in Haberfield for a while now. A mix of pizzeria-trattoria-tapas with a genuine Italian flavour, with a fantastic wine list to complement the great food served here. It can get very noisy upstairs, so try to get a table outside or in the balcony. They do not take bookings. It's worth... More

I had dinner at La Disfida last Sunday night. It was our first visit in about a year. Nothing has changed. We had the meat plate [Salami Misti] which is great value and a generous serving for 2, followed by a pasta special of mixed seafoods which was very nice. The wine list includes a good selection of Italian wines... More

This place has been a favourite for close to 15 years, this used to be one of the best places for authentic Italian pizza in Sydney. The salads were also great and really interesting. I visited the other night after about 6 months between visits and was really not impressed. Not sure if its my imagination but the menu seemed... More

We went here for date night on a Saturday night and the pizza was amazing. The service was great, the food came out quickly and the staff were lovely. They don't take bookings however so we did have to wait 15 minutes for a table. Completely work it though! Highly recommended and we would definitely go back.

No bookings for small groups - so go early to beat the rush. We got there at 6 pm on a Saturday and it was already 2/3 full. Food is good quality and there is a good variety. Particularly like the specials. Can be very noisy. Service is good. BYO makes this a very good value dining experience.

Forget the location, just close your eyes and you will believe you are in Italy. This is an authentic restaurant that oozes quality. The only thing missing is the plastic checkered table cloths, and a string of Vespa's parked out the front. Food, Great - Pizza - Special - hand made ? Maybe, just a little too round, but nevertheless... More

It's one of many place to eat pizza in Haberfield but is the most popular, the pizzas are ok but are expensive. There is always a crowd waiting out the front for a seat.
