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™.

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.

We had the banquet menu which had a bit of everything. Each serving size was generous particularly the cheese and meat tasting plates. Pasta was cooked to perfection. When we finished we asked if we could get sneaky seconds they happily obliged! Loved the food, service and ambience. We sat upstairs, sometimes combined with the music and the chatter from downstairs the noise can make it a little difficult to hear each other. Other than that definitely one of our favourite restaurants.

The Buffalo Mozzarella with olives and beetroot salad was too die for. I could not fault this dish. However, I was a little disappointed with the spaghetti, Very salty. Too salty I couldn't finish my bowl of pasta.

fantastic food. incredible flavour, super tasty and fresh. loved it. if i could say anything that wasn't positive, but neautral.. the seating (stools) were a tad uncomfortable, because I'm qute tall. Great experience though, I will be returning for sure!

Cacio é pepe and burrata are a must try.

The food and wine was authentic and delicious Italian style. The staff were very helpful with questions regarding the menu and wine list.
The venue is compact and comfortable with a long table for groups and little intimate tables for couples.
Loved my Tuesday night catch up with a friend!

Cacio e Pepe. We were so looking forward to it but it was disappointing. Literally just spaghetti and cheese + garlic.
Cacio should be creamy when the sauce is made from boiled water from spaghetti. Not sure if this seen any water as it was pretty dry and not creamy at all.
Other than that, the atmosphere is very nice, great music and the wine list is great.

Be careful using/giving Buffalo Gift Certificates as they do not offer any form of supplementary certificate if you do not use the full value of the certificate in a single sitting. Given that they have a small menu with modest prices getting up to a full gift certificate value.

In our case we were presented with a $200 gift voucher and my wife and I enjoyed a birthday dinner. After 2 entrees and two pasta dishes, a rocket salad and 4 glasses of Proseco we were full. The bill came to $149. So our options were leave a $50 tip, take a couple of dishes home or stay and have a couple of desserts and glasses of wine.

We took the latter option which spoilt the occasion for us!

We were happy to separately tip the staff who were terrific!

I took my friend here for her birthday and we both loved it! Their cheese wheel spaghetti is iconic and the gnocchi is delicious. A very small place with a great atmosphere and lovely staff. Also, quickest service and food delivery ever!!
