About the restaurant
Joe’s Kitchen is a singular Italian restaurant housed in Concord’s Massey Park Golf Club that is in fact two in one. As a bistro, this is the place where owner-operator and chef Joe Amendolia expresses his love for southern and northern regional Italian cuisine in a traditional, relaxed trattoria-style environment. As a restaurant, Joe’s Kitchen pulls out all the stops to offer guests a superior fine dining experience. Either way you cut it, from the moment you step inside Joe’s new premises along Ian Parade, Joe’s Kitchen is clearly a passion project – the enthusiasm of the crew is infectious, and the food divine. Book a table at Joe’s Kitchen for a fresh, fun approach to Italian cooking in inner west Sydney.
With the arrival of Joe’s Kitchen on Sydney’s Italian restaurant scene, it’s clear that Joe Amendolia has built on his earlier success with Trattoria Roma @ Joe’s in Surry Hills’ Aurora Hotel to hone his love for the food business, his superb sense of Italian regional cuisine and his understanding that the best Italian dining experiences take into account atmosphere as much as culinary acumen of the highest level. Joe is joined in his busy bistro and restaurant kitchen down Concord’s Ian Parade by head chef Silvia Bergamo, a crucial team member who brings her Bergamo background and Michelin-starred experience to bear on the meticulously prepared Italian dishes on offer at this hotspot in the Massey Park Golf Club building.
The bistro at Joe’s Kitchen is run like an Italian trattoria – casual, relaxed, with a wide range of simple, rustic dishes designed to tide diners over and stimulate good conversation among good company. Take some Sydney rock oysters as an entree (italian-style of course), simple and satisfying pasta dishes, and hearty mains. There’s a kids menu, too, for an education in the pleasures of Italian cuisine. On the ristorante side of Joe’s Kitchen, the vibe is far more refined, lending a wonderful sense of expectancy to proceedings as diners peruse a more substantial and carefully-curated a la carte menu. Pane and antipasti are mandatory beginnings to an Italian meal of a lofty tenor. Joe’s famous homemade gnocchi with gorgonzola are a popular option from the pats selection, while secondi piatti use premium ingredients from land and sea: lamb, barramundi, salmon, and prawns find their way into superbly presented Italian dishes that are sure to please Sydney’s discerning diners. Whether you’re down for the bistro, the restaurant experience at Joe’s Kitchen, or enjoying one of Joe’s catered functions large or small, you will surely recognise his deep passion for food and pleasing people. Be sure to book a spot at Joe’s heavily patronised Concord premises in the Massey Park Golf club so you don’t miss out.
