I had walked by it many times it never caught by eye. Then I saw the plates one night and the plate presentation was beautiful. I came back and ordered the carbonara with spaghetti. The garlic bread arrived and was very visible appealing and very good. The carbonara came and also looked good. The chef rushed the spaghetti, it was... More

Stopped by the Il Puntino restaurant before catching a bus back to the city. Located very close to Bondi Beach. We ordered a vegetarian pizza (eggplant, artichoke, bell pepper and mushrooms). The pizza crust was not flavorful at all. It was too thick and too dry. The artichokes was very bland. All in all a very underwhelming experience. Price was... More

Don't look down at this Italian restaurant. It has a stone oven inside to make great thin pizza, adding charcoal flavours to delicious toppings. The boss will welcome you on the terrace and propose the specials. He can even make some adjustment to the recipe to suit your preference. He really makes a difference and he seems to know all...

Thursday night is a quiet night and only one other couple who left shortly after we arrived. Sat outside with a heater and watched the people go by.

The only thing about this Italian restaurant was the waiter. Food was plain and average for this price. I would imagine getting this type of food in a bar. Not going back here again.

Stopped early on a Saturday evening for a quick meal and sat outside opposite Bondi Beach.......met by friendly and knowledgeable staff. Spaghetti Bolognaise and 4 cheese ravioli were excellent, and even our glass of wine each was topped up without additional charge. A very pleasant, enjoyable meal with excellent friendly service. Thank you. We'll definitely be back.

Staying in Bondi Beach

Neighbourhood Profile
Bondi Beach
An iconic Australian suburb, Bondi Beach is famous for its fantastic beaches and views. Once the domain of backpackers, hundreds of tourists from all over the world descend en masse to Bondi in December ready to enjoy the "Aussie summer". Bondi Beach boasts impressive ocean views all along the many restaurants and bars on Campbell Parade. Wake up early and take a dip in the surf before walking the scenic stretch from Bondi to Coogee Beach. Stroll through the Saturday organic markets in North Bondi or grab some fish and chips and relax in the grassy area opposite the beach. For more upscale cuisine, head down to Hall Street where a range of new eateries have recently opened. Just make sure to save enough energy for the buzzing nightlife Bondi Beach has to offer.
