The tables were squashed together. My partner had to keep squishing in to let people / waiter squeeze by. Looking out on razor wire and an alley was under whelming.
Our waiter seemed the worse for wear apparently;y after a serious night on the town. He either needs a shave or needs to grow a proper beard. He also was in desperate need of a hair cut. Grey scraggly hair with a biro stuck in his bun is NOT a good look. He was obviously not interested in providing good service.
The plates were good but were TINY for the price. NEVER RETURNING OR RECOMMENDING
The restaurant is not as impressive as the photos would suggest. I did like the decor and ambiance .
I commenced my dinner with a positive feeling in this eclectic restaurant. The menu was disappointingly limited although I did enjoy my meal that I had. There seemed to be only three waiters for the whole restaurant. The service was very poor as the waiters were unable to to service the customers. ( at times we had to pore our own wine). We went to the 5:30pm session and they could only offer one cheese for the cheese board as they had run out !!!!! Amazing !!! I wanted coffee but they would only serve expresso. It did not live up to its review in the Weekend Australian.
One staff member carrying the whole team, the rest seemed lost. Was SO loud. We had a booking and were ignored in the “line”/waiting area/drinks area. So confusing. Had to book online as there’s no number and we requested bar seating for a birthday, the system makes you choose seating and an occasion and our choice was ignored. Don’t show up without a reservation we went at 9 on a Wednesday and the place was packed with people walking out of the line, not bothering to wait. Food was decent but pretty expensive for what we got. Our food also rocked up before our caraffe had made it to the table which was a bit of a worry in our opinion.
The venue is well appointed and has been improved since incarnation as Berta. Carpet has dampened the noise levels which is welcome and the leather banquette is extremely comfortable. The food is easy and is prepared to share. Service is friendly and efficient. Booking can be difficult as they allow mostly for walk-ins during peak booking times 6:30-8:30pm. overall a very enjoyable local dining experience. Forgot to mention the bar is extremely inviting and they mix a great cocktail.
Food was excellent, portion size was small however
Great atmosphere ..good service and lots of explanations about menu choices...excellent food and drinks choice ... good to see the chef relaxing and eating from the kitchen...
High expectations exceeded. Will be back VERY shortly.
Fantastic authentic Italian. A little pricey but worth it!
Synonymous with new openings in Sydney. Riding off the hype of a new restaurant rather than the quality of the offering. Service was substandard, arrogant and entitled
Menu was authentic but so overpriced and wine recommendations were poor.
All in all mediocre at best
Excellent and personal service from Shaun contributed to a great evening, coupled with the food and intimate atmosphere. Definitely will recommend and be returning !
