Dining inside the century-old Haberfield Post Office is enough of an experience in itself, but combined with the food that Il Goloso offer then, well, it becomes something pretty memorable. Dating to 1914, this gorgeous building on Dalhousie Street now houses one of the most authentic restaurants around Sydney’s historical Italian districts. Haberfield Post Il Goloso uses quality Italian products, experienced Italian chefs (including dedicated pizzaioli) and the Italian approach to treating the entire meal – not just the food – as a special experience. The result is a mix of great atmosphere, superb wines and even better food that is hard to beat in Haberfield. The veal specialties are a strong feature at II Goloso and the homemade pastas are proper nonna-style, but given the aforementioned master pizzaioli and their authentic wood-fired oven, it’s hard to beat the wide range of pizze rosse, pizze bianche and calzones.
Good hospitality and great food! My family goes to the restaurant quite often. We never get bored of it. Food is consistently good. Highly recommended.
The food was delicious. We ordered several dishes to share family style and they were all wonderful. The service was attentive and delightful. I wish they were open for lunch during the week.
The food and service was terrific. Our group were able to talk and hear each other and the staff were friendly and helpful. Thank you.
Delicious food, with great service! Nice space and location too. Staff are friendly and aren't afraid to have a laugh with you. Very much a 'family' feel restaurant.
A lovely meal - shared calamari, arancini and zucchini flowers and all were delicious, crisp and hot. Veal dishes excellent (saltimbocca and parmigiana), big servings and lots of nicely cooked, crisp veges to go with them. Pasta with veal ragu freshly cooked and very tasty. Service a nice balance of attentive but unobtrusive - an out-of-town guest very impressed. One of our favourite Italian restaurants and we will definitely be back.
We had an enjoyable night. Great atmosphere. The service was excellent and food very good. The waiters took extra trouble to ensure our diverse group - who arrived at different times, were all catered for. Thanks for a great night!
Great food and service for a local restaurant. Ask for the antipasto board it’s huge and worth it too. Pizza are some of the best in the area too.
Really excellent food with friendly, efficient service to go with it. It is one of our favourites in this area. We also love the old post office building
Good hearty meal. Great antipasto board! Good attentive service and pleasant atmosphere where we could hear each other (being a week evening may be a factor).
We had a lovely lunch, great service & the owner is a real gentleman. He gave us roasted cashew nuts as we left, nice touch
