I sat inside and it was a really pleasant experience. I enjoyed all the food and drinks. I also enjoyed the screen photography and Italian music.
Family gathered for a lunch to celebrate my Dads 80th Birthday. Was very relaxed atmosphere with great food and helpful happy staff. Thanks!
Good classic Italian cuisine. We had pastas mainly and we all really enjoyed the meal.
I have been to Appetito a few times, 2 for lunch and once for dinner. The most recent time was for Mothers' Day lunch and it was a very enjoyable and it was a nice touch for the mothers to receive a glass of prosecco.
Thanks to the staff of Appetito for a great evening. Food was delicious, atmosphere was great, service was outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble.
Food was super salty. When we asked the waiter, she got the manager. Manager was apologetic and said they couldn’t do anything as the food “came pre-made in a bag”. Avoid this place
Lovely atmosphere and couldn’t fault the service. Staff were fantastic and attentive. Food was disappointing. Starter came out cold and the main courses were nothing more than average. Not hugely expensive compared to other Sydney restaurants but better value for money could be found elsewhere.
Thankyou , our table was ready on arrival, service was great, our waitress was attentive, and very accomodating as there were 14 people.
The food tasted authentic and the atmosphere was lovely. The overall noise level was low until the emergency alarm on the cruise ship across the street started blaring. Otherwise outstanding service with pleasant smiles, even at my horribly broken Italian, and delicious food at a reasonable price.
The food was really very poor. Clams and mussels were often empty shells and on a tasteless sauce. Bruschetta was really soggy. Salads poor quality was an extremely disappointing meal i would never return
Really great service. Very attentive to our needs and genuine servers. Quick service compared to other restaurants. I’ll definitely be coming back.
Casual atmosphere and good food. Could not fault the service.
Not only is the food amazing (try the gnocchi, it's that soft that you can chew it with your tongue), but the waitress we had was lovely and the place is very accommodating. A great wine list, too! Accompanied by the sound of the quiet, distant ocean, this fantastic restaurant has perfect ambiance for an intimate night out with friends or family. I can certainly say that I will be back!
Everything was okay, but for the price I'd expect a better meal.
Nice atmosphere sitting outside. Very good service
Delicious food as always and the lunch special is really great value!
Beautiful place amazing service and the food was amazing. Next time I am in Sydney will definitely be coming back . The staff couldn’t be anymore helpful
I have been here several times and everytime Appetito never fails to impress. The wait staff are friendly and helpful. My partner liked the sound of the Risotto Pesatura, but did not feel like Risotto. "No problem, which pasta would you like with it, we can make make it however you like". What a welcoming response! The wine list is delicious and not too expensive with a good selection of Australian and Italian wines. We ate early on a Friday night. The restaurant was half full so the meals arrived much quicker than we expected with delightful service. Highly recommended.
Food was really good but it's a shame the waiters are so rude and stuck up. I never bring race card into anything but I truly believe some of the wait staff didn't want to serve us because we were Asian.
Delicious food. The food came out relatively quickly.
We waited an hour for our appetizer, all we ordered was Bruschetta, when we asked about 3 times, our waiter kept going to the kitchen, but still was waiting.
Then when it came we asked if our main food could get started as soon as possible.
then we go to pay and it was very unorganized
which it was a shame, it was a lovely restaurant and our last night there and we did not enjoy it at all.
Poor service with slow service due to waiters being distracted with talking to each other. But pizza was authentic and salad was good but one was enough to share between 2-3.
The food was good particularly the pasta but the seafood soup was not worth the price - little quantity for the price. Service was also poor. We had to ask for water, plates and cutlery.
We had lunch at Apettito on Xmas day. Everything was spot on, service was great, food was good and whole experience was fantastic. I highly recommend it
Feels very "fast food" Italian. Food had the air of having perhaps just come out of a tin or a freezer. The best part of the meal was the bottle of wine we ordered. It was very windy and a bit chilly outside and cold inside, lacking any ambiance. Maybe would be ok for a quick cheap lunch.
I went there for a Christmas Dinner with my friends and had great food as well as creative cocktails.
I’d highly recommend the Bruscetta as a starter!
Absolutely delicious! Fresh homemade pasta with clams. Service was OK we were given the wrong bill at the end of our meal?. Otherwise the food was top notch.
Love this place however we thought our serving size was somewhat smaller than on previous visits.
This probably is the worse restaurant I've ever been to. It was so bad that it was my first time throwing the food aside having just ate two mouth full.
How can you claim to be an Italian restaurant when your food is worse than dog food?
The Seafood Vongole was just clams on top of freaking BOILED PASTA! There wasn't any sauce in the pasta, NO SEASONING (which is so basic for chefs). All I could taste was the flour from the pasta.
The steak was average. No sauce. Just salt and pepper to go with it. Charging $39 for it, I would expect at least a sauce to go with it. Instead, it was coupled with a mere chunk of rocket.
I WOULD SUGGEST THOSE READING THIS TO NEVER EVEN BOTHER TRYING THIS EMBARRASSMENT OF A "RESTAURANT".
Good portion sizes and tasty food. Great service and lovely atmosphere outside. Will definitely be going back again and bringing other friends
A lovely place to enjoy a delicious meal close to the harbour.
Great food, great atmosphere. You can get a little bit lost with there being so many entrances to the place but once your in....amazing!
Ate at Appetito a couple years ago and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The staff are very friendly and helpful, I cannot fault their service. The food was good. Some dishes were excellent, like the squid and veal. Some food was a little disappointing, like the grilled prawn salad. Overall, however, an enjoyable meal and I would definitely go again.
We visited Sydney from our home in Texas for 2 weeks. My wife and I love pizza and ended up having dinner 3 times at Appetito. The pizza is Napolitano style (which is usually not my preference) but outside of Naples, this is the best Napolitano style pizza we have had. The crust is perfect (not overly thick) and tomato sauce very tasty. The wine selection is good and enjoyed a decent selection of by the glass choices. If we ever go back to Sydney, we will definitely revisit Appetito.
Good food, relax and quiet ambiance for a birthday lunch.
We had a lovely birthday meal here and they accommodated us 30 minutes earlier than our booking which was great. Food and service were both top notch, only slight downer was our table which was right in front of the waiter station so continually busy and noisy. Good value though and we would return.
My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful meal, on our visit to Sydney.
reminded me of being in Croatia with the old building but cozy restaurant indoor and outdoor
The food and service was exceptional.I would highly recommend this restaurant
