Bartolo Wine Room is a Italian restaurant and wine bar located on Crown Street, Surry Hills, listing more than 170 International and Australian wines, a great cocktail list and an exciting new Italian food menu. Open Thursday dinners and then open from 12pm-late Friday to Sunday for those long lunches, afternoon drinks and boozy dinners. We have both indoor and outdoor (dog friendly) seating available. Please note that if outdoor seating is booked and bad weather prevails then we may not be able to accomodate inside unless there is space available. Bartolo Wine Room's food menu has been designed around the great wines on our list and as such is not a kids friendly space. Happy hour on weekdays from 5-6pm.

We had a great birthday celebration and the food variety and quality was excellent. Interior setting and atmosphere was welcoming, warm and energetic. We shared 3 smaller plates and then 2 larger dishes between 3 and that was plenty. The background noise was a bit loud. Great value and under $300 including 5 dishes, cocktails and excellent wines. Wine selection is excellent by the glass or bottle. Definitely worth trying

Glad you had a great time Wayne, and thank you so much for the kind words. Apologies for the noise, with such a small room each person's voice does go a bit further. Next time you come be sure to book for an outside table where it's generally a bit quieter, we'll make sure you're next nice and comfortable next to a heater. Thanks, Harry

We went to Bartolo in January 2020 for a glass of wine and some cheese, and have been meaning to come back for a proper meal. We had three small plates and two large plates between us and enjoyed very bite. We even ordered extra bread to ‘mop up’ our plates. Fabulous food. Two glasses of wine were chosen for me by the staff and they were also excellent. Thank you for a most memorable night. We will be back!

The food is absolutely outstanding.
My only negative point comes from the waiting staff being so stressed and giving the impression of being overwhelmed.
On the other hand, the barman who looked after us was absolutely amazing calm and professional. I know hospitality is lacking staff at the moment but don't put your stress on customers who look for an enjoyable time :) beside that, as I said, the food and the drinks were beautiful I'll definitely return !

Hi Camille, so glad you enjoyed the food and drinks! It's unfortunate your waiter was a bit stressed but everyone has their tough days, though I'm sorry this rubbed off on you. After the craziness of December I can promise you we're now all happy and stress-free. Thanks! Harry

The service provided by Marco, the quality of the ingredients and capability of the chef, the soft and understated but charming decor, all combined to provide a fantastic lunch. Would highly recommend this gem to others.

Glad you liked everything Archit! I'm sorry the noise was a bit much, in such a small room a few people's voices can go a long way. Next time make sure you book an outside table where it'll be a bit quieter and we'll get you a nice spot next to a heater. Many thanks, Harry

Decided to try this restaurant quite randomly as it looked great online. When we got there the staff were friendly and explained the menu to us (as first-timers). The wine was perfectly matched with the meals, and every. single. meal. that came to us this night was a solid 10/10. We didn't want to rush our meal, but had to leave to make another booking. Will most definitely be returning... and taking our time :) Thank you for a great experience.

Ate here last Sunday with my wife.

Amazing food and cocktails, loved the Martini and Negroni.

Every dish we ordered was beautiful to eat but the casarecce pasta with osso buco ragout was outstanding.

Excellent service as well.

Highly recommended.
