Incredible food, that never ceases to amaze, fantastic service, always a pleasure to dine and take clients
Very smart ? Looking restaurant nice bright decor, super clean glasses & cutlery, keep up the professionalism
this is how restaurants should be - friendly, knowledgable staff, good food, well placed tables (so not crammed in) - a great old school palce
The near perfect score above has been earned over the years and is not glibly applied. Even the minor reduction regarding noise level is only because we are both quietly spoken and the occasional repeat is required...while admitting at the same time that the 'buzz' is part of the pleasure and excitement we look forward to each time. Even the change of ownership was transitioned seamlessly and you are to be congratulated on that. Our many anniversaries, birthdays and your own Christmas closures and re-openings have been spent with you, and the predecessor La Strada, for what is now decades - and will continue as long as we are able. Machiavelli is one of the show places we share with overseas visitors that matter when we are our to prove that Sydney does have sophistication and great food. We thank you and look forward to seeing you again soon - GJ
Enjoyed the food, wine & service. When I paid the bill I advised the waiter that it was a debit card. He proceeded to charge me the very high credit card fee ( compared to how much they are charged by the bank) and this charge was pre calculated and already on the bill. He told me to be quiet when I questioned him. He was happy to refund the amount but only if i was quiet! I could not be bothered to wait. The credit charge is a over the top and ruined an otherwise nice evening!
One of the few real Italian restaurants in Sydney. The scallopini were moist and not over cooked. The funghi sauce and the alla romana were as they should be. The aroncini was light and crisp. The service was friendly and professional. Thankfully a lack of snobbery rules here, that one can unfortunately find in some supposedly up market establishments elsewhere. A welcome change. I shall return.
Our first ever visit and absolutely perfect! Everything was exactly as it should be. These guys after 30 plus years know exactly what they are doing. We come through Sydney for 3 months every year and from now in this is a total must st for us. Thank God we were told about this place - perfect in every way .
The food was excellent. I had the gnocchi and it was incredibly soft. My husband had the spatchcock and it was so flavoursome. The staff could have been a little more attentive. We wanted to order more drinks to have with our dessert, but no one came to our table until we were finished, so we grabbed the bill instead. The specials menu had no prices on it, unlike the regular menu. We enjoyed it, we’ve been there before and we’ll continue to go back, but there’s always room for improvement.
The food at Machiavelli Ristorante Italiano was delicious, traditional Italian food and the staff were very attentive. Best Italian restaurant I have been to in Sydney!
