All the classics are represented, plus authentic Italian sides and gelato (plus a range of digestifs), and there’s also something special for the really hungry… read on.
Pizza Autentico has friendly staff, amazing pizza and pasta with delicious sides and well-priced cocktails. Italian wine was really great and I loved the big communal tables. This place is great for groups.
Great pizza and good pasta. Excellent venue for groups including families. Our favourites were the four-cheese pizza, sausage and potato pizza and gnocchi. Very reasonable.
Pizza Autentico offer Sydney’s gluttons the opportunity to gorge themselves at their Brisbane Street restaurant on unlimited pizza and pasta for just twenty bucks over a 90 minute period, served around their huge 28-seater communal table! Enjoy a range of pasta dishes like penne Arrabiata or the more exotic orecchiette norma and rigatoni n’duja with spicy sausage. Take a short breather and it’s time to try this Surry Hills pizzeria’s selection of fine Neapolitan discs and plough onwards towards the post-prandial coma you deserve, or at least paid for.
The same all-you-can-eat concept continues upstairs (that’s right, Pizza Autentico is a two-storied Surry Hills palace to Italian cuisine) with an extended binge of 2.5 hours for just $29, perfect for groups larger than 12 people. If you are a smaller group and want to take on this feasting challenge it is always available for two or more diners. Not only do you get loads more time, but they also throw in starters like delicious cheesy arancini and the classic rocket and parmesan salad. And as for those pizzas, this Brisbane Street pizzeria has only the authentic best: classic margherita, regional variations like the Siciliana, quattro stagioni, spicy pepperoni, pork sausage with potato, and spinach and ricotta, and that’s just for starters. There’s an orgy of Italian food going on at this Sydney Italian, so get your toga (and your bib) ready.
