Good morning ladies and gents. Whilst everything was fantastic please don’t get me wrong. The only thing to be picky about was that we felt rushed. But I think that the staff were lovely and were just fussing over us. Will be back again as this is our favourite restaurant . Thanks again

Beautiful restaurant with delicious, fresh food. Great selection of drinks. The wait staff were professional and polite, however the service was a little slow. Wouldn’t recommend sitting outside in the late afternoon in Summer due to direct sunlight. Great spot for New Years Eve to watch street performers. Overall satisfied with our experience.

The entree was brought after we were almost finished with our mains. Husband ordered vodka and never got it. Staff were very slow. Food took a while to arrive and compared to Melbourne’s Italian Cuisine, this restaurant is highly overrated. Would not recommend to family or friends visiting Sydney.

Overall food was ok.
The zhucchini flowers were too salty but otherwise nice. Fries were a bit salty as well.
Pizza was good but the pasta was terrible. We ordered the last pasta option on the menu. I would remove that from the menu. We weren't pleased with the pasta options to begin with. Unappealing options for that price.
It tasted like nothing and looks like someone just put something together because they couldn't think of anything else. It didn't look great and it tasted like what it looked like unfortunately. Not enough pear in the pear and rocket salad. The rocket looked quite soggy/wilted and unappetizing and just sad-looking. Better presentation for the salad is needed.
If we were to come again, we would stick to ordering pizza and fries and one other side.

Responded on 4 January 2022

Thank you for your review, Sea. We apologize that the pasta and salad were not to your liking. Our goal is to offer a variety of options that are as delicious as they are healthy and we hope this will be reflected in our menu choices going forward. We're sorry you didn't enjoy the zucchini flowers either. they're one of our most popular items here at Bel & Brio!
