I was very unhappy with this restaurant. I had booked over a week before hand and when we turned up we were given a table towards the back of the restaurant in the dark dingy area. All the good seats towards the front of the restaurant were taken. I asked why given that I had booked a week in advance we were given such a bed table and they said this is where we put couples. Be warned.
Good service & great food in Italian restaurant frequented by the locals.
Loved it! Would definitely return :) Thank you very much!
If you’re gearing up for a meal at The Italian on O’Brien Street in Bondi, you are in for a treat. The Italian food offering at this Sydney restaurant is not only extensive but it also utilises the very best fresh, locally-sourced produce. If you’re a meat lover you can expect dishes such as traditional crumbed veal served with a variety of seasonal vegetables or a prime scotch fillet with exotic mushrooms cooked in a sage, red wine and cream sauce served with roast vegetables. Alternatively, if you’re more of a fish or seafood lover, how about some calamari, garlic tiger prawns or a Napoli fish broth with yellowfin tuna, tiger prawns, calamari, shredded crab and chilli?
No dinner at The Italian Bondi would be complete without tucking into some of the incredible pizza or pasta on offer. When it comes to pizza, we love the Capri with three different kinds of cheese, ham, Kalamata olives, sautéed mushrooms, anchovies and oregano. In terms of pasta, the four cheese with gorgonzola, provolone, parmesan, mozzarella and cream is well worth travelling from anywhere in Sydney for. So next time you feel those cravings coming on, a reservation at The Italian is a must.
