Caminetto is an old establishment well located at The Rocks - a touristy and old part of Sydney. The ambience is great, always busy and buzzy. The food is always good and so is the service. I am a local and often take my overseas guests there for dinner.

Beautiful setting with lovely food and pleasant servers. Try the tortellini. It was so plentiful I took half home. Also, they open early, and you can have drinks or breakfast during the Rocks Market.
