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™.

I loved BDC it was such a great meal, super friendly staff and a great venue!!! From the time we sat down we felt really welcome and comfortable. The menu was great and everything we ate was delicious!!! The zucchini flower entree was Awesome!!! I also really liked the home made chilli sauce and the best pasta I’ve had for a long time. We’ll be back again for sure!!! Well done BDC team!!!

The food was amazing, completely delicious and great generous portion sizes.

When we had service it was good, that was when the waiters wernt standing in the open kitchen eat straight off the meat slicer. Had to physically wave at a waitress in pink overalls after she walked passed us 6 times to get the bill. She turned around and with a mouth full of food told us she would get it in a minute.

Atmosphere was amazing, very friendly bartender (although maybe move some sodas to other side of bar before service so don't have to move guest during meal yo reach them.

The paste was delicious but a little bit too dry, I missed some olive oil on top and some more garlic. Everything else was spot on!

Food tasted great, although the pasta was a little cold. Service wasn’t great, had to wait ages to get the bill which I always find frustrating. But the food did taste amazing which made up for it!!

We went to Buffalo Dining Club in early January with some family, and by the first course I knew I would be bring people back! Most recently dined here with 5 others on 21/1/2020 and it couldn't have been better - service, food and environment were 10/10.

This is a very buzzy small restaurant. I loved the atmosphere and service but thought the wine list was too limited and the Italian food average. The cacio e Pepe from the cheese wheel was novel but the pasta was dry.

Evening ruined by rude waitress - sarcastic, slamming down water bottles because we had the audacity to ask for some more. Food was awesome as always but having been here many times before I was embarrassed to have recommended to my colleagues. Yes the food is good but there are many other places where you aren't made to feel like an inconvenience for being a customer. Will not be going back sadly.

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 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.

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.

Came of course for the cacio e pepe - lived up to the hype! But everything was delicious.
