Fugazzi….it’s that moment of deja vu that begs the question, have I been here before?

An overnight institution where velvet, leather, and marble create a decadent and luxurious atmosphere designed to invoke a sense of nostalgia. There it is, a romantic representation of the past, that simultaneously manages to remain firmly rooted in the contemporary.

Is its bold character a physical manifestation of the Italians’ age-old gift of making art out of life, or is it just Fugazzi?

Fugazzi Bar & Dining Room. Snacks, pasta, steaks, with sophistication. Sister restaurant to Nido Bar | Pasta in Hyde Park.

    It has a real buzz for obvious reasons. It is worth checking out for yourself. It won't be on our high rotation list. We might go back in a year when things have settled down and they have found their flow.

    We booked a table in the bar and was sent outside. We were told that we couldn’t order off the menu and chefs selection was the only option. We waited 1 hour between entrees and mains and the drinks service was very slow. Not a great experience unfortunately

    Wedding anniversary and first time dining at Fugazzi recently. Tables are close together and overpriced even for its inner city location. We ordered steak, was cooked to order and very nice (highlight of our visit). Place was busy and service was good.

    As a occasional diner at Rigoni's back. in the day, Fugazzi has taken this historic site and immediately created another dining icon. There is a seamlessness both in respect to oder taking and delivery of the dishes. But while the staff are fantastic the star is the food. Pasta dishes that exalt flavour and authenticity. The blue swimmer crab is superb. Fugazzi is not cheap but the food is more than worth it. Very extensive wine list although no "natural" wines. Great experience.

    Three of us had a Celebration lunch - had the five course menu- Heaps of different food to try- plenty for all of us. Share plates worked really well. Service was excellent attentive but not pestering. Good wine list - lots of choice and reasonable prices. Lovely layout and design. Prices were moderate to high but the food its of a very high level. Would absolutely recommend and will go again.

    I've dined at Fugazzi quite a few times and absolutely loved my experiences - I always found the food delicious, service expectational and enjoyed the great ambiance, had kept coming back and raved to friends about it. When I saw the Mother's Day lunch I was very excited to book in my mum and family for a three course lunch with prosecco and unfortunately it just fell flat. We were served by a young girl who had to bring 4 different prosecco bottles over to us 4 times to fill each glass individually, apologising each time for it running out? So it was a while before we could cheers and enjoy our drinks together. Mine was underpoured and dripped on the table - on previous occasions I'd received such great service especially when ordering wine. Another waitress apologised to us every time she placed food on the table, she seemed quite nervous. The first few snacks were fine but fell flat. The artichoke in particular was quite bland in comparison to your lamb skewers, mortadella sandwiches etc. The pasta were both pork based dishes which again were fine and then that was it. Having paid $79pp for what was advertised as a three course set menu, we were sad to learn an individual oyster and kingfish crisp constituted a whole 'course' and didn't get to enjoy any form of protein. I should have done some more enquiring as to what the set menu would entail, but assumed for that price we would receive more than the snacks and pasta. I just wanted to share I was disappointed we all left feeling underwhelmed, the polar opposite to how I had felt leaving Fugazzi previously.

    The cappuccino was atrocious. The lack of a choice of non alcoholic beer in 2022 is appalling and should be addressed. I can imagine that 6 or so cold beer’s would fit in the fridge. The food was absolutely spectacular. We will be back with friends at a later date.

    Tasting menu was a great experience - the food was delicious, each dish was faultless. Favourite dishes were the pork and fennel pasta and gnocco fritto with ricotta and honey. The semifreddo affogato for dessert was a perfect end to the night. Service was friendly and added to the dining experience.

    We were treated by the entire staff to an exceptional experience for our wedding anniversary. With complimentary champagne and some dessert treats, to all of the wait staff coming by to congratulate us - it made a special day even better. The food of course was sensational. Thankyou Laura and the entire Fugazzi team for treating us like family. It was truely amazing.

    We had high expectations, but unfortunately the service was terrible from start to finish. We left hungry after an overpriced and disappointing meal. It started with walking in and being handed a 10 page wine list of Italian wines. No explanation or menu. We waited for a while before anyone came to our table. When we asked for some wine recommendations, our waitress said she couldn’t help us, but then didn’t find anybody who could help, which left us very confused. We asked for the food menu and were again handed it with no explanation. We then tried to order something, only to be told that was for lunch only. We ordered a couple starters, which tasted ok, but we still didn’t have any drinks. Eventually we ordered a glass of wine each, as no-one had bothered to come and help us choose a bottle suitable for our meal. What’s the point in having an extensive and exotic wine list if no-one can guide you through the options? We enjoyed 2 pasta dishes, but were left completely dissatisfied with the experience. We would have ordered more food, but with such unhelpful waiting staff and a negative atmosphere, we just wanted to leave. The bill was $200, we felt this was a complete rip off for what we got! Usually staff ask ‘how was your meal?’ when you go to pay - this time they showed no interest at all. That says all you need to know.
