More about Trovata, Darlinghurst

Fully-licensed, Trovata Mediterranean Restaurant is just as good a place to drop by for a drink and a big authentic pizza if you’re out and about in Darlinghurst as it is to visit in the evening for a hefty Italian and Mediterranean feed. Headquartered in a cosy joint down Stanley Street, it’s close enough to the Sydney’s city centre to bring the working hordes in for discount lunch deals on pizza, pasta, salads and a cheeky dessert, but Trovata is comfortably a family-friendly neighbourhood venue, too.

The specials at Trovata change regularly, but you can reliably expect the wood-fired pizza oven to be turning out authentic Neapolitan pies at a rate of knots, with everything from Caprese bianca to the classic margherita, peri-peri chicken, and outre toppings like the Padrino and Vendora in between. Grab yourself a plate of the Trovata black linguine, seafood spaghetti, Italian sausage risotto (or a kumara version for an Aotearoan twist), and settle into a top-notch Mediterranean culinary experience in the heart of Sydney’s Darlinghurst.

Always a great experience at Trovata. Food, relaxed atmosphere, friendly service. We enjoy it every time. Favourite is definitely the black linguine! Tiramisu is just like Nonna used to make! We'll be back

The meal and value were excellent. Service by a newly arrived Italian waiter in a busy lunchtime environment was most impressive. All in all a pleasant visit

The pizza was excellent and we loved the rocket salad. I have heard that the food quality had declined recently but I wanted to give it another chance and we were impressed. Great service by our waiter too -thank you

Had lunch at Trovata Restaurant on Sunday with my friends. We were on a weekend away in Sydney and had just enjoyed a harbour cruise, the hotel concierge recommended that Trovata Restaurant was within walking distance. We were greeted by a lovely gentlemen, who helped us through the wine list and recommended us with the perfect red wine to accompany our meal. I had the popular seafood spaghetti and my friends had wood fired pizzas. Ended this amazing day with a delicious housemade Tiramisu and received a complimentary Limoncello. Would definitely come back here on our next visit to Sydney.

Another great night at Trovata. Great entrees - the calamari, the antipasti plate and the bruschetta...always full of flavour and the calamari always tender. Main course pastas were fantastic - black linguine is my favourite! As always, a satisfying and most enjoyable meal.

Great food, great atmosphere, great staff, great value. Everything is always "great" at Trovata. Always difficult to choose what to choose from the menu as everything is a standout.

great food and great service. Excellent value for money. Wife and I are both vegetarian and had plenty of options. The menu is quite extensive actually so I am sure the range for non-vegos is good too. The quality of food and presentation are equivalent to much pricier places.

We have eaten there many times over the past 4-5 years and have not had a bad meal.Service is good and attentive ,and for goodwill they reward you for your own personal reviews with a bottle of wine for your birthday.Seems like they are always well patronised .
