We revolve our dishes around the amazing Pecorino Romano cheese wheel, imported once a month, fresh from Sardinia, Italy. 

Other cheeses such as our much loved Buffalo Mozzarella also make an appearance on the menu as well as pasta's, prosciutto, salads and dessert.

Come in and let our friendly staff guide you through a dining experience that we have lived with our whole lives.

Hope to see you all soon and welcome to the Buffalo Dining Club™.

We tried three pasta dishes - the two on the menu plus a special of the day. All of them were excellent. All of the other dishes we tried were equally as great. Our server was fun and very attentive. The atmosphere was light and casual, and we were able to relax for a couple of hours and enjoy drinks.

The food is absolutely delicious, especially the spaghetti served from the cheese wheel. Definitely reccomend to anyone who loves pasta and cheese.

The kitchen is to be commended at this restaurant. It is the reason that patrons return time and again. The food is of outstanding quality, prepared and cooked to a high standard every single time. This consistency is relatively uncommon across Sydney's restaurants - particularly in Darlinghurst and is core quality of Buffalo Dining Club.

Great food and service. Tables are tiny, stools for sitting and not much on wine list under $60.

A series of incident just affected the entire experience. Hence the reason why I would not recommend.

Food was great. Service was very attentive.
Music was not right. I’m a fan of 90’s grunge and the red hot chilli peppers but it seems incongruous for this kind of restaurant (or any kind of restaurant).
There was also a bottle of wine on the bill which we never ordered. I picked up the error and the apologetic waiter corrected it. Then indicated the tipping function on the eftpos machine.

DELICIOUS! The menu may be minimalistic but the food is definitely not. It is all about taste and beautiful ingredients at this restaurant and as for the homemade Chilli.....yum. The lovely lady who waited our table was excellent as well. We will definitely be returning as often as possible.

Music loud. Decor too industrial (cafe look)/ uncomfortable. Service average. All this in light of the above avg prices of course which raised my expectation for a nice Italien meal and decor.
Pasta were cold probably due to Cheese wheel which should have been replaced as kind of empty. Once warmed up, the pecorino came through nice with spaghetti. Nice sauce with gnocchi but gnocchi not a smooth as hoped for.

Hostess attitude was dismal, she seemed to be hating her job and customers! Extremely rude and not accommodating!

The humidity upstairs was horrific! Invest in a dehumidifier!

The food was great, and generous. I found the decor a bit dated and needing a refresh. My only complaint would be it was very loud upstairs and we had 2 tables empty so of it was full upstairs it would be a challenge to hear anything.

The food was outstanding but the service was not great. Paying the bill was not easy and they put more money on our bill than what we actually ordered.

Been here about 10 times before. This time in particular was extremely loud in comparison. We kindly asked the server if she could turn the music down but she had to check with the manager? Unfortunately this meant nothing happened. That was a shame as there was only us 2 and maybe 2 other couples dining at the time. The service was a bit average and everything seemed just a tiny bit too difficult for her but she wasn't overtly rude. The food here is always amazing and the service is usually always spot on it's just this one instance which was an outlier.

I took the cheese platter with 2 sides and when the waiter realised one of my sides was the wrong one, he bought me the correct one in a spare plate at no extra cost, apologising a lot.
The food was really great, one of the best I tried in Sydney. I definitely recommend it.

The food is great and reasonably priced.
I came with an idea that I can actually eat my pasta in the mozzarella roll. Call me a trashy tourist, but I was disappointed I did not get to enjoy a more cheesy experience. Yet excluding this wrong assumption both pastas we ordered were excellent.

Amazing food! You must try the buffalo mozzarella as a starter. The main meal of pasta served in a giant cheese wheel was absolutely incredible. Great service, although a little bit squishy in the seating.
