An authentic Italian restaurant in the heart of Leichhardt, Il Cugino Pizzeria invites you to take a flavour trip by indulging in the restaurant’s incredible pizza selection, chowing down on some pastas or knocking back a couple glasses of wine. A jack of all trades when it comes to Italian cuisine, Il Cugino Pizzeria is a standout on Norton Street, just steps from Pioneers Memorial Park and Sydney Secondary College.
Since 1988, Il Cugino Pizzeria has been tossing dough, crafting amazing Italian mains and serving Leichhardt locals with a smile at their Norton Street location. The Sydney restaurant is casually decorated and the vibe is laidback, so guests are welcome to come by for any occasion, and to bring along the kids, too! With some of the area’s friendliest service, Il Cugino Pizzeria is a reliable choice for lunch or dinner, and is open every day of the week except Monday.
While the pasta dishes and the meat specialities – think T-bone steak, Vienna schnitzel, veal valdostana, and saltimbocca – are delicious, the pizza is what draws most Sydney locals to Il Cugino Pizzeria in Leichhardt.

A wonderful family run italian traditional restaurant. Great dishes.. big dishes.. great food. We went with a group of 8 and all meals were amazing
Always excellent food and service with a smile. Definitely the extra mile for us this time - staying open beyond closing time for us to collect our meal en route from delayed flight home :)
Always great food including best pizza In Sydney. Parking around Leichhardt is sometimes a challenge though plenty if you prepared to walk a few minutes.
Il Cugino has been around for years and years making great family Italian meals. Great value. Great food. Don't go for 5 star. Go for authentic Italian home cooking.
We have been going to Il Cugino for years, too long to remember exactly maybe 15 years or more. They make great Pizzas & spaghetti marinara - all your dishes are yummy!! Thanks Charlie & family. Cheers Joe
Everything went superb. This is the 2nd time I have been there. Both time was greeted with a big smile. People were so lovely and the food was excellent. Will definitely be back again.
Food was great, particularly the pasta. However it doesn't quite have the restaurant atmosphere to go out to dinner after a movie. BYO keeps the cost down.
