Bel & Brio is serving our full menu in the main bar and dining area. Please note, the formal dining room 'Corso Brio' is temporarily closed.

Inspired by the great food halls in Europe, Bel & Brio was established to bring delicious, authentic Italian food to Sydneysiders in the bustling Barangaroo precinct. Executive Chef Davide Incardona’s menu is a nod to his traditional Italian upbringing, using flavours and cooking techniques from the cuisine of his hometown in Brescia with a contemporary twist inspired by seasonal and ethically sourced produce.

Corso Brio, our restaurant, brings the nostalgia of exclusive supper clubs to the heart of Barangaroo. Head to the Bar & Dining room section at Bel & Brio with friends, family or colleagues for a fun and relaxed experience.

My friend and I had a lovely experience at Bel & Brio. The waiters were very friendly and accommodating. The food was also very nice - reasonable serving size and tasty. Can’t wait to go back when they recommence their degustation menu!

We asked assistance in choosing a bottle of wine between 60 and 80 dollars. Two were presented which they had selected and in the end when the bill came was shocked to find it was 190. More than double what was expected. A quick google shows the wine retails for 75 dollars...zero assistance was offered when the waiter who chose the wine was questioned on the price.

Will never be back... shame as several dinners who live in the area were looking for a new favourite restaurant.

Hi Aaron, Thank you for taking the time to leave this feedback. I can imagine this must have left a bitter after taste to something that could've been a lovely evening. I will definitely look into this further, and reach out to you directly to see how we can make this right.

Food and service were fantastic. Only 1 annoying thing was drops from the ceiling due to aircon that kept on falling on my dress and hair... not good for a restaurant of this standing.

Service was lovely and the food was wonderful. We came in a party of 9 which included a young child who can be difficult to please. The staff were very courteous and patient with us and our smallest picky eater. They assisted us in deciding portions of sides and recommendations. Food was wonderful and really worth the price.

Dining here a number of times before & always having a pleasant experience, we decided to have a Christmas catch up here on Friday 20th. Assuming with making a 11.30am booking to beat the lunchtime rush we would be up for an experience as we had been accustomed to. I couldn't have been any more wrong ! There was not a table available for our arrival & after waiting we were "dumped" on an outside, street table, we were initially offered water & given menus, so far so good after a rocky start. From there the only contact we had was from a brazen waiter who required the spare chair at our table, from there we waited 35 minutes for service with not one staff member approaching our table for either drinks or food order. From here we proceeded to leave in which I highlighted on my exit to the Hostess managing the door & also the one that seated my friend & I, that due to NO service received in this time we felt best to go elsewhere. Shocked & embarrassed all she could offer was a half hearted apology, no service recovery was attempted at this time which made our exit even more warranted. I am not normally one to complain & appreciate that we are well into the festive season & things get busy however NO service is unacceptable, especially when the restaurant was clearly not so busy & hope no one else receives this experience. Bookings are made in good faith & its a pity is not returned with customer service. Long time patron of this facility that will not be returning.

I booked a table for 2 in the Corso restaurant hoping for a lovely date night in a quiet restaurant, however when seated in the bistro area, was advised that the table before us were not finished so we had no choice but to sit in the loud bistro area. Whilst being able to dine from the Corso menu, the extremely loud noise level and ambience ruined the experience. We were given complimentary champagne to make up for it, however I would’ve liked if more effort had been made to have us seated where we were supposed to. Despite my meal being quite tasty, I would rather have paid less considering the setting did not match the price tag.

Beautiful meal and location. Service was good to start but then we were totally ignored. Not offered opportunity to order dessert or coffee. Practically had to tackle someone to get our bill when we'd given up waiting for the opportunity.
