Bel & Brio
This is a lovely restaurant. Went there for lunch with friends, everyone loved the food and the coffee. The service was great, we felt well looked after and appreciated. The only downside was the music that was unpleasant and way too loud. I'll be returning asap to have the pistachio tiramisu, the garlic pizza and the Bolognese!
Thank you so much, Rihana. We're happy to know that you love your lunch experience with us. Thanks again for this. See you on your next visit. Cheers!
As always wonderful food & service
Thanks for the 5 stars Ruth! Cheers!
I made an online reservation for my family of 5 on Saturday 3rd August for 7pm. It clearly stated that there was a 20 min grace period on arrival time which I was relieved for as I have 3 little boys to get ready. On arrival to your restaurant at 7:06pm a lady came out and said very rudely that she had called me many many times and huffed as she took us over to a table. I checked the time and said to her it is only 7:07?? My family of 5 was seated on a 4 seater table and an extra chair was shoved on the CORNER OF THE TABLE!!! A gentlemen seated at the table next to us kindly told us that it was fine to move the chair around to the side of table.
When I had a moment I checked my phone - I had 2 missed called at 6;55 and 6:58 pm - no msg was left. As I was attending to 3 children to get them ready I had missed these calls that were made PRIOR to my reservation time.
I was astounded that we were greeted so rudely and not even provided with a table that comfortably seated my family when I had a reservation. We had travelled all the way from Port Stephens and stayed in apartments across the road and were looking so forward to dining in your restaurant. Unfortunately I will never return.
Hi Kate, First of all I wanted to personally apologise for our staff behaviour, it did not represent our business service culture in any way or form. Second of all, I wanted to thank you for your constructive feedback and for taking the time to help us being better at what we do. I will personnally ensure further training is provided. Please give us another chance as we would love to see you again soon!!
Enjoyable lunch with friends. Excellent service and good food.
Hi Frances, thanks for this awesome review. Glad you had a great time with us. Can't wait for your next visit!
We had a fantastic time at Bel & Brio! We had a table 6 and the staff were amazing and service was perfect. Most importantly the food was delicious! Thank you for a wonderful night!
Hi kate, thank you so much for taking the time to share your feedback and thank you as well for complementing the team. we hope to see you back soon.
Lovely quiet restaurant in the heart of Barangaroo Great place for a catch up with friends where you want to talk and have a wonderful experience. The food is very good but would like to see some more menu variations Service is first class , meals are served hot and quite quickly. Wonderful place to dine in style.
Hi Sueanne, thank you for taking the time to leave us this amazing review. The team is thrilled to hear such good feedback. And we're proud to have one of the coziest places in Sydney. Looking very forward to hosting for you again soon.
Our table of four had a delightful lunch, good food overall. Being in an Italian restaurant it was surprising that we were unable to do an shared entree board, instead had to order multiples of what we wanted. The menu was sufficient but the desserts were surprisingly lacking. Overall it was a good experience and we would return. Unable to split the bill either so be aware of this.
Hi Roze, thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. I have taken notes of your comments regarding the food and it will be addressed to our chef. I am very surprised to hear that you were not able to split the bill as we always happily split bills, I will also personally investigate on this. Thank you again for dining with us and we are looking very forward to hosting for you again soon!
Really cool place and modern Italian quinine including pizzas! Highly recommend
Thank you for this awesome review, Alex. We're happy that you love the place and looking forward to hosting for you again!
I choose to meet all my clients at Bel & Brio because the atmosphere is lovely, and their menus are extensive. It’s always a pleasure having a drink or dining there, thank you!
Highly recommend their traditional pizzas- yum!
Hi Kerstyn, we're thrilled to hear such wonderful feedback. We're glad that you appreciate the atmosphere and our menu and can't wait to seeing you again!

This place is a gem in Barangaroo. Warm, elegant, and relaxing atmosphere, world class pizza and the friendliest staff there is to find. Thank you Daniello and all other staff for your excellent service and food. Now I look forward to that Swedish Capriciosa with prawns on the menu ;) Grazie!

Good service and food. I have come here twice in a month for a good reason.
Hi Eleanor, thank you for taking the time to share your feedback, we hope to see you soon again!
Loved the food and the simple menu. The service and personality was lacking from most staff but we thoroughly enjoyed our European experience
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. It's very disappointing to hear that the service was not up to its usual high standards. I am sure the team did not mean to make you feel this way and I hope this has not deterred you for coming back. We would love to see you back!
We had a lovely evening at Bel & Brio. The service was attentive and friendly, and the restaurant - dining area provided a lovely dining experience... we could actually hear ourselves talk. We ordered pasta dishes which were delicious however the tagliatelle lacked in flavour, which was disappointing as the pasta itself was beautifully made. The desserts were all excellent and beautifully presented. My one major gripe was for a place that cooked its own pizzas and pasta, the small cold cube of focaccia was rubbery and oily. Overall an excellent night enjoyed by all.
Beautiful venue and gorgeous food. Service could be better, we found ourselves waiving for the waiters and felt they could have been warmer in their approach to us as guests. Overall a good experience and would happily return as the food was superb.
Thank you for taking the time to review us. It's very disappointing to hear that the service was not up to its usual up standards. Please accept our sincere apologies, this will be raised in our weekly management meeting. Can't wait to host for you again!
love coming here with either the family or business colleagues.
Hi Sue, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review and looking very forward to seeing you again!
Third visit to this restaurant. Excellent pizzas and friendly staff
Hi Janice, thank you for counting us to be one of your favorite restaurants in Sydney. We're delighted in knowing that you appreciate the foods and services we have and thanks for giving us a 5-star rating!
Very nice brunch experience. good all round. Service and ambience always excels. Food very good.
Hi Funfoodies, thank you so much for your feedback and we hope to see you back soon!
Good for Business dinner. The new dining room is quieter and warmer than previous.
Hi Craig, thank you for your kind words and we are very glad you like our new dining room Corso Brio!
Disappointed that there was no white sourdough for breakfast. Waiters command of English was poor and consequently got the order wrong. This seems to be a common theme in Darling Harbour/Barangaroo restaurants
Hi Joel, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. It is very disappointing to hear that the service was not up to its usual high standard. We will ensure further training is provided and we hope to see you again soon.
We were 7 not 4 persons. We had a wonderful time. My friends came from all over Sydney and they will be back soon
Great restaurant, great food

Very good service and nice atmosphere. The food was good for the price. Everyone in our group left satisfied.
Hi Wayne, so pleased that you had a fantastic time. We hope you'll join us for a meal or drink again soon!
Service was not that good. We were there 35 minutes before we were asked what we wanted..
Excellent restaurant. Great ambiance. Friendly staff. Excellent food and wine. Would definitely recommend.
Hi Bling, we're glad you had a wonderful dining experience with us. Thanks for the your kind words.
Service was appalling.
It’s Italian, so choose a pasta dish. You won’t be disappointed.
Hi Sandy, thanks for taking the time to post review. We really appreciate it.
Overall happy with place, food was really delicious but at busy time maybe more staff would help. But I’ll definitely come back
It was a very nice venue especially inside in the dining room. Service was great by all staff - everyone was very friendly. The food was ok. We ate from the A la Carte menu and we weren’t overly impressed by the taste unfortunately. The food just didn’t have amazing flavors so unfortunately it’s probably not someone we would visit again. Would say it’s worth a try though...
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review and thank you for your kind words, I will pass on your notes to the Chef regarding the flavours. Just would like to let you know that we have recently changed our menus and it could worst it to give a second try! We hope to see you again at Bel&Brio.
The atmosphere was fantastic....like going into another world.....and the attendance and service of the waiters was first class....excellent knowledge of food with good humour thrown in.....food was top notch and very tasty...selection was very good for wines, drinks and food which made it difficult to decide, they seemed all good...we'll be back and we have told many of our friends of the great experinence
Thank you for your service. We loved the ambience especially the food and music.
Thank you for your kind words Ezzz and we are looking forward to hosting you again!
Not professional service , no next time

Dear Huw, Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a lovely review. We are looking very forward to hosting you again!
Bel & Brio is always free so I booked it but I must admit the service is shocking...
Dear Mitchi, thank you for taking the time to provide us with your honest feedback. It is very disappointed to hear that the service was not up to its usual high standard. Please accept our sincere apologies. Your notes will certainly be addressed in our weekly management meeting so we can continue to improve. Please give us another chance to show Bel & Brio the way it should be!
It was quite good value for the price. The salad leaves were a bit wilted and yellowish. We had the pear and rocket salad. The pizza was good. The service was good.
Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your honest feedback! I am very glad you enjoyed your evening with us and I will certainly pass on your notes to the chef to keep improving. We hope to see you again soon!
