Bel & Brio
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!
Good food gnocchi and bruschetta amazing!
Thanks to Matteo(waiter) and the someliier too
Thank you Sara, I will make sure to share this feedback with the team. Hopefully we will see you again soon!
The duck was under done, and the pork belly was dry. Bhowevef the lamb shoulder and all entree were exceptional and delicious! Overall, enjoyed the meal
Hi Jessica, Thank you for sharing this feedback, and for still giving us 4 stars. I will make sure to share this with the kitchen, so next time it will be a 5 star dinner
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.
Service was the best I have experienced in Australia !!! A very magical and attentive evening. Thank you
Wow, "magical" is probably one of the best compliments to get. Thank you very much for this wonderful review, and please come back soon
Staff are great and atmosphere always really good. Great Cocktail menu.
Thank you for those lovely words, and hopefully we see you again soon!
Another excellent evening with exceptional and informative table service; thanks for the melbec recommendation, and very tasty drop
Thank you for these wonderful words Tracy, and glad to hear you enjoyed the wine. We've got a full team of sommeliers to ensure we have a great selection of wines and the team can give good recommendations. Hopefully we will see you again soon!
Great service and amazing food, atmosphere was amazing
Thank you Tina, great to hear you had a good time. Hope to see you again soon!
Worst service our group has ever experienced , we had to basically get get out of our seats to get service
Dear Michelle, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with this feedback. I would love to discuss this further with you, as clearly this is not in line with the level of service we are aiming to provide. I have send you a private message, as I would love to take the opportunity to make it right.
Came for dinner on a Thursday night. The venue was busy and buzzy, beautiful atmosphere. It could get noisy but I was still able to chat with my friend. Had pizza and loved it! Highly recommended, very nice ambience.
Relaxed and comfortable - great service and food! This place is highly recommended to anyone visiting the area for the first time but also locals looking for a decent place to have a sip and nibbles!
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.
We didn’t eat here but the drinks, service and atmosphere was great!
Excellent venue for a business lunch, very highly professional in terms of service and the food was of an exceptionally high quality. Every course was perfect.
The food was very delicious. The waitresses were very friendly and very welcoming. I would recommend this restaurant to my family and friends.
Delicious food. Great service. Had a successful meeting. Appreciative of the regular top ups of water and you didn’t try and push alcohol on us. Well done.
Food amazing. Location super.
We are falling in love with this place.
Beautiful restaurant. The food came out quick and was absolutely amazing. Our waiter was great.
an enjoyable evening with great food and ambiance - the service was excellent
We were very happy with everything
Lovely food in a chic atmosphere. Staff were attentive, the 'Breeze' strawberry mocktail was delightful and the affogato came with a scoop of sublime vanilla gelato/ice cream.
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.
Always a fantastic time, fabulous food. Great service
Thank you Stephen, we are looking forward to seeing you next time!
Always excellent service and outstanding food. The friendly team make it a very positive experience
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.
My coffee order was wrong, the toast wasn’t toasted at all and the waitress messed up the payment.
Waiter had a bit of an attitude. But great otherwise.
Confusion over booking, wine expensive but food good.
Loved the moody interior of the restaurant. The service was exceptional and only matched by the food. Perfect restaurant experience.
Always love feeling like I’m transported to another place at Bel and Brio - definite favourite!
Excellent location, great seating and delicious food.
Shame that the menu has changed it was great before when we could share plates like big chicken and vegetables.
The food is delicious. The waiters were very friendly and welcoming. I would recommend this restaurant to my family and friends.
A good night - the table reserved for 12 was too small but was sorted out within 30 mins. Good pizza, good service.
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.
Amazing atmosphere, great service, and lovely food make for a very relaxed and enjoyable dinner. Suitable if you're in a hurry or have time to soak up and enjoy the vibe
THe Corso Brio is not fine dining. They might think so, but the food quality is way off what one would expect from a fine dining chef
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.
Extremely attentive service and even assisted with exact change to assist split the billing
