“Fantastic food”
Review of Italian Stallion

Italian Stallion

Reviewed 28 June 2018

We have eaten here on many occasions and the food is consistently excellent. Decorated like an inner city bar, the restaurant décor creates a great ambience especially in the Sutherland Shire where most places are pretty bland.

Heard that Italian stallion had new management so decided to try their speical 15$ pizza deal on Wednesdays. I ordered a Margherita, by the first look of the pizza, the size was a bit small but appealing, the toppings were fresh and full of taste but The dough didn't look the best due to its pasty look. It wasn't authentic and it was light which made it not filling enough.
They cut it really weird into 5 pieces going from one side to the other making a really thin and long slice which wasn't practical to eat because the whole idea is for it to be wide so you can fold it. In conclusion it was good and tasty but they have to work on the pizza bases making them around 20g heavier to increase the size and improve the recepie. I think a factor that would help them succeed with it should be buy a higher quality flour which it might take longer to cook but the improvement will be seen in the end product.

I believe in the restaurant due to have tried their food in the past and I want to help them improve in their weaknesses in the dough as I'm Italian and I love the culture and the food.

Food 5/5
Service 4/5
Overall 3/5

The meal we enjoyed here was very nice, good flavors, small portions but great food.
Happy to pay the price of the meals, BUT the wine list was pricey @ $50 per bottle. Our meal of a shared entrée, one main each and one dessert each with wine was $100 per head.
Not your average price of a suburban meal, but if you are going to charge prices like this then match it with the service and style of your restaurant. The staff were not well presented or professional (Poorly dressed and presented - licking your fingers while cutting bread for service!)
At the end of the meal we wanted tea and coffee with dessert, we were told that they don't do coffee as their machine had been removed, they couldn't even offer a tea bag. Again not at all a $100 meal.
I understand that this restaurant has new owners as of this week, but it was a poor start to their opening weekend.
So worth going for the food but I would suggest a big shakeup in staff, customer service and personal presentation, also maybe a better wine list that is more reasonable with price. This will no doubt increase the popularity of the restaurant!

Twice now we’ve tried to eat here and twice we’ve been disappointed. On each occasion we tried to get in just after opening. First at 5:15, second at 5:20. On both occasions the doors were locked and the staff inside despite noticing us, ignored us.
There won’t be a third attempt. The Chinese up the road however has on both occasions been awesome.

We hadn’t been to Italian Stallion for over 12 months and we had convinced our Italian foodie friends we should give it a try again. What a wonderful surprise, we had a great meal received excellent service from the lady waiter and once the place filled on a Thursday night great atmosphere. The duck salad was as good as ever and the fig entree ( we ordered 2) was delicious. Pizzas were excellent particularly the “Jesus Christ” special. We then ordered one of each of the sweets to share. All excellent. The wine was good as well. Not expensive with the quality of food service and wine. Our friends were really surprised and we agreed we will be back.
