Located on Toorak Road in Sydney’s South Yarra, Ecco gives diners a true Italian experience. Sit outside in the charming patio area with its rustic brick tiles and potted plants and dine al fresco, or head inside to the cosy candlelit dining room full of authentic charm with its traditional decor and wooden furniture. Begin your meal with some antipasti, like the calamari fritti (fried calamari with white balsamic mayonnaise) or some zuppa di pesce (raw beef fillet with evo oil, lemon and parmesan).
Serving up pizza just the way it is back in the chef’s native Tuscany, you know the woodfired offerings over at Sydney’s Ecco restaurant are the real deal. Try the pepata topped with tomato, mozzarella, hot salami, wood fire-roasted red peppers and chilli, or the salmone affumicato with Tasmanian smoked salmon, capers, dill, tomato and mascarpone. Round your meal off at South Yarra’s Ecco restaurant by indulging in some tiramisu or sticky fig pudding with butterscotch ice cream – bellissimo!
A fantastic night! Superb food in a delightful setting. The veal scallopini was wonderful and the pannacotta was "melt in your mouth" standard. Waiters were attentive and great also.
Very friendly staff, wonderful cosy place (fireplace, white tablecloths, wood fired oven,...) and very good food. We had a pizza... The crust was thin and perfect! The wine advised by the waiter was a perfect match as well. The only thing I regret is Ecco not having my favorite pizza topping : anchovy & capers. Definitely will come back!
A well run Italian restaurant with a warm atmosphere. Family managed. Service is professional & caring. We shared a pizza, calamari between 4, the calamari was perfect. Then mains, 2 had perfectly cooked rib eye , 1 enjoyed porcini pasta special, + my veal was delicious. Flavours & quality consistent. Wine list , something for everyone. We always go back.
