About the restaurant
Devine is one of the city’s most established wine bars, on the corner of Market Street and Clarence Street, in the heart of Sydney CBD and a short stroll to the QVB, State Theatre and Town Hall.
Devine is the spot to find tapas, Italian-inspired a la carte and an excellent wine by the glass selection. Long known for it’s popular lunches and after work eats, you’ll see the hustle and bustle of the city coming in to wind down; sinking into the banquettes or sitting up at the bar with some share plates.
Freshly shucked Sydney Rock Oysters, zucchini flowers and artisan salumi boards might be the best way to start.
Then any of the daily house made pastas, market fresh fish of the day, or the Wagyu Steak are a must!

Choose from over 400 wines on the Award winning wine list at Devine - with 40 available by the glass! European grape varieties and natural wine producers aplenty.

At just a stone’s throw from Darling Harbour, Devine is a must for corporate meals, social & family celebrations

Sensational. Welcomed by friendly staff and ambiance was like stepping into an old world Italian restaurant. Our beautiful Spanish waiter helped with selection of wine which was very enjoyable. Our starters of pate and crudo were scrumptious and the mains of wagu ragout and gnocchi were outstanding. Will definitely return.

About the restaurant
D.O.C is real Italian eating and age old simplicity refreshed with contemporary flair. A celebration of heritage. A joy in sharing. Authentic, exuberant, and outrageously Italian.

Brilliant venue for a pre-theatre pizza and wine. Would be perfect if there was a coffee machine :)

About the restaurant
Here at Zafferano, we like to keep things a little old school, from sourcing to serving, our key values remain.
Simone, the Head Chef and co-owner of Zafferano grew up inside the kitchen of his family's restaurant in Porticello, Sicily and brings that passion and authenticity to his food.
We combine local, fresh, seasonal ingredients with passion and tradition, to create a menu that is endlessly devoted to flavour and quality. We have a love for food, for the whole experience. We believe in celebrating just how powerful food can be, from the seed to the plate. Because connection through food is our mission.
Our space is intimate with only 38 seats and the overall vibe of the restaurant really transports you to Sicily with an outdoor courtyard that feels like a traditional Italian piazza.
We have a few signature dishes however the Risotto Marinara & Spaghetti Marinara are definitely at the for front of our menu.

About the restaurant
Whether you like to play it safe with spaghetti or go crazy with casarecce, you'll find all your favourite pastas, fresh and homemade, at new Italian diner La Favola. Let the carb-loading begin.

So who's the master of pasta at La Favola? That would be Italian chef Fabio Stefanelli.
Stefanelli's recipe for success is simple — six pastas and six sauces, and patrons can mix and match as they please.

So La Favola's Family is committed to producing top quality Italian gastronomy, to the use of authentic ingredients, and to keeping the tradition of Italian culture and hospitality vibrant and passionate.

We look forward to serving you!

Felt like we'd stepped into Italy !! Great menu, service was efficient and although the restaurant was packed, we had our pre dinner drinks within minutes and our meal was not far behind - we will be making La Favola our regular Italian restaurant - Fabio & his team have created an authentic Italia experience with amazing food, impeccable service & a atmosphere you don't want to leave.

Excellent restaurant. Very good food, and the owner runs the room very professionally. The tables are reasonably spaced, especially the tables for 4 along the western wall. It's not particularly noisy, conversation is easy. For a restaurant of this quality, having BYO on week nights is a bonus. Highly recommended.
