Interesting menu even though simple. Manages crowds well, good presentation of dishes & garnishes, natural beverages like strawberry soda & iced teas a refreshing change, batch brew coffee as well. One of the few places that knows how to do calamari well. Pizza stands make sharing easy & fun

Makes health food taste good! The only issue is that it is a little bit loud but the great service more than makes up for it!

Our order went missing but the team were very apologetic and rectified the issue quickly so all good. I think they could be more generous with the serves of protein but other than that food and ambience are great for a casual catch up

amazing service with friendly staff going out of their way to help us. We really enjoyed the versatility of the menu so that both of us were able to eat very different meals.

Happy as Larry has a menu to suit all. We certainly found something for everyone in our group of 8. To top it off the service was great and accommodating.

Generally the ambiance is great, the service was slow, but most likely due to lunch time and being busy, we still had to wait a while though and meals did not come out together

Not as good as previous visits. Our mains came out first, then our entrees and finally our drinks. Service was a bit disappointing this time round but the food was great.

I booked Happy as Larry for a work lunch meeting. I arrive, said my booking name and the waitress directed me to the top level table. My work colleague walk, said my booking name and was directed to the lower level. We sat at different tables for almost 25 minutes before we texted each other and found out we had both been sitting at our tables separately the whole time. The waiter took my drink order but I did not receive this until at least half an hour later. AS it was a late booking for lunch (1.30pm) and not busy that the staff did not realise two people were sitting separately and it was the same booking. I was extremely disappointed by the service, not to mention this was a work meeting so our valuable time was cut short.

The food was quite bad. The potato on the potato pizza was literally chips. The calamari was terrible. The dirty carbonara lacked sauce and what was there was hardly creamy and the bacon was hard and extremley salty.

Been here multiple times, the food is a little expensive but it’s fantastic, I’ve never tasted pizzas so intense with flavour & the pizza base with the perfect texture, the pasta is amazing also, their mushroom pasta is divine, I bring my friends here too, they are happy to customise the dish slightly, my only critique would be the wine list isn’t extensive, but it’s more for a casual lunch then a fine meal, but the quality is o par to those fine dining venues.

Extraordinary pizza. The entire table said it was the best pizza they have had in Sydney. Great service. Nice atmosphere. Very hospitable team. You will leave very satisfied.

We were a table of 9 and everyone's food got brought out at different times when though we all ordered together. Some of our group had finished eating by the time I got my food.
My order was placed incorrectly so had to ask why I hadn't received my food to only then be told there had been a mix up.
Very slow service and they should definitely but more wait staff.

Its a great place! Good food, and adequate options for vegetarians like me. The place does get a bit hot, so some ventilation would make it better.

Large portions and lots of yummy options! My green and lean salad was delicious and would definitely eat here again. Went at lunch time so was a little noisy but that's to be expected. Service was also very prompt and friendly.

Came during the lunch rush with a booking so they were quite busy. I won't judge on first visit and will return but the staff were getting meals wrong at various tables and noise level can by high at times.

Pizza was good but pasta was a struggle. It really felt rushed and lacked flavour.

It's not fine dining, but I didn't expect it to be either.

Will try it again and give them a second shot at it.

You must lessen the chilli on your frutti de mare as it was too spicy - my brother ate his meal!
Also, your carbonara is too dry with burnt bacon bits added.
Our lunch was not exactly pleasant!
