Taking its name from the Italian for a thousand wines, Mille Vini is a wine bar and Italian restaurant that’s been a major player in Sydney’s competitive culinary world since its opening in 2005. The restaurant is situated inside of an historic building and features a sleek and sophisticated interior decor that creates the ideal ambience for a romantic evening out or an intimate dinner with friends. Mille Vini can be found on Crown Street in Surry Hills, just moments from Central.
Mille Vini’s location inside of an 1853 heritage-listed building – an old stonemason’s workshop – seems to fit perfectly with the classic, rustic Italian cuisine that the Sydney restaurant serves, alongside a long, carefully curated wine list that features regional as well as international wine varietals. The folks here really love their wine, and that’s especially apparent from the hundreds of wine bottles lining the walls. Its location on Crown Street in Surry Hills couldn’t be better, and is only a stone’s throw from Central.
The stuzzichini, or sharing plates, are popular options at Mille Vine, and antipasti such as bruschetta, pork bites, arancini and calamari are always crowd pleasers before heading onto mains like agnello (lamb backstrap with mint & parsley farro, beets and a lemon mint yogurt), anatra (confit duck leg) and pasta dishes such as duck pappardelle and fettucine a la funghi. Finish up with one of the delicious desserts – try the homemade chocolate terrine for a sweet conclusion. Mille Vini’s is known to fill up, so make sure to book ahead when planning to dine at this classic Italian restaurant and wine bar in the heart of Sydney’s Surry Hills.
