Sydney’s Cronulla couldn’t do without having La Fresca’s relaxed trattoria-style Italian dining in the neighbourhood. It’s fully-licensed and BYO, you can drop in for a quick bowl of pasta or indulge in a classically long and languorous Italian meal with friends and family, and its close to Cronulla’s most famous landmark – the beach. Found on the corner of Kingsway and Croydon Street, La Fresca is a local fixture that deserves repeat visits to fully appreciate the range on offer. Book now.
Poor service, very slow to serve and order food and then kicked us out at 10pm for licensing when we only finished mains and they were not serving us more alcohol. You could tell they just didn't want to wait any longer. We weren't even allowed to finish our drinks. Food was ok.
Fantastic food! It was the best Italian food I have had in a long time! Definitely recommend going there and it's great that it's also byo
Something as simple and fresh as locally-caught barramundi wrapped up and cooked with bug tails, cherry tomatoes and confit fennel perfectly reflects Cronulla’s beachside vibe and perfectly encapsulates the delicious simplicity at work in La Fresca’s Kingsway kitchen. Those in Sydney’s southern suburbs wanting a slice of this kind of culinary action – and by action we mean a slow-motion, indulgent kind of gastronomic activity – can book a spot and drop in to La Fresca for lunch from Friday to Sunday, noon to 3pm, or dinner from Wednesday to Sunday, 6pm until 10pm. Whichever sitting you choose, this Italian trattoria is sure to please.
Begin with bruschetta – that’s out rule when dining at La Fresca’s Cronulla restaurant. Escalate with entrees like simply-prepared Sydney rock oysters with a chardonnay vinaigrette or Kilpatrick sauce. Push through to pasta dishes like the recent pasta-special-of-the-week farfalle salsiccia. Mull over mains like the bistecca Calabrese, a dish of diced eye fillet marinated in chilli, garlic and oregano and served with polenta. Sidle up to sides such as a simple rocket, pear, and Parmesan salad and you’ll find yourself, with La Fresca’s help, dining the true Italian way in no time.
