Intermezzo Italian Restaurant - Sydney
We dined at 12 top tier Sydney restaurants during our two week visit. Intermezzo was tied for 1st place. It is located in a marvelous building with interior atrium tables, exterior colonnade tables and a small interior dining room. All were appealing. We chose the small dining room. The food was very good. The service was outstanding. The wine and cocktails were very, very good with many options/selections to choose from. Our server, Eduardo, was the most charming and attentive server I've ever encountered. Which puts him atop a list of over one thousand servers in our 50 years of fine dining. His recommendations were excellent and on budget. We rarely seek server advice. All of us were glad we did in this case. I'll always ask for him going forward. Such a very nice place. Highly recommended. I wish it were in my home city as I'd dine there often.
Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Wait staff were very good and gave great recommendations. Food was excellent and very fresh. Some nice & different pasta options. Scallops in particular were delicious.
I always enjoy my meal and those with me do as well
Spending eight days here in Sydney, we have tried several different restaurants, including this Italian one that was a pleasant walk from our hotel. Everything was very good; for main courses, my wife started with tomato and cheese and, then,osso buco; I started with an eggplant timbale and then, a fish served with very nice veggies. We split a salad and dessert. There was an ample wine list; while prices can escalate, there seemed to be choices in every price range.
Fantastic professional service, staff who know their product and are implacable in the face of challenging customers plus fabulous food make for an exceptional night out.
Great food and service but a bit overpriced for the alcohol.
Good-quality Italian food and wine, with good service, in a central Sydney location.
First time to intermezzo very lovely ... ambience the service was great. The waiters were fully aware of our needs .Will definitely go back
I found this restaurant by chance- and boy did I luck out!
Delicious food with every attentive service. I’ll be back!
Too expensive , food and drink very expensive. $26 for a house champaign is ridiculous.
This was a special occasion with my sister and brother in law visiting from the US. We had the most amazing meal - everything was perfect! The surroundings were gorgeous and the service was attentive without being intrusive. I can't wait to go back to Sydney to visit Intermezzo again. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would.
When we travel and meet up with friends whom we have not seen in awhile the challenge is always to find a restaurant that has a good ambience but still has a sense of calm so one can chat (and not shout like so many restaurants). Intermezzo's atrium seating allows this which means a fun night to catch up, the food is very tasty and the service is excellent. It is situated in a beautiful old building in the central CBD of Sydney and easy to find. We visit this restaurant often because of atmosphere and the food. One of my favourites!
I ordered the fish of the day and it was excellent! The restaurant is strategically located along Martin Place so this is a great place for people-watching while on the shade and enjoying lunch.
Great place, we ate outside and had fabulous food and great, fun waitstaff. Only disadvantage is walking downstairs for the restrooms after two bottles of wine.
It was our 50th Wedding Anniversary. We sat outside under the columns which was very pleasant. Our waiter, Vito (Vido?) was excellent, attentive but not in your face..
The food was good but somewhat overpriced. In general it was too salty (my comment and my wife's as well) - why do so many chefs insist on oversalting food rather than leaving this to the consumer?
I would probably recommend the restaurant to overseas visitors staying in the city but not for someone living locally - too many excellent choices for good Italian food within a few kilometres of the city centre.
Fabulous service and the food is incredibly fresh and vibrant. Try to sit in the bar in front - much more intimate!
Wonderful food and wine and fantastic service. We always love dinner at intermezzo
Beautiful spot and location with impeccable food service was a little forgetful
Wow! Impeccable Italian fine dining! Could not fault the food, or service
This place is exceptionally reliable always great food and attentive professional service.
Always on point , excellent presentation and the food does not disappoint. Sitting in the collanade along Martin Place you could think you're sitting anywhere in Europe having lunch.
I booked this restaurant for my parents Christmas gift. Amazing job accomdating the logistics to pay the bill and provide amazing service. Food and staff served at an amazing quLity. Highly recommend this restaurant to anyone both domestically and internally visiting Sydney.
Great quick dinner before a show at Angel Place recital Hall
The pasta, T-Bone and panacotta was delicious. Service was attentive.
We enjoyed our dinner at Intermezzo. The food was creative & delicious and the service professional and attentive.
This resturant is amazing!
I love how the service was so brilliant and the food was incredible... The location and restaurant was spectacular!
We had the calamares for entree which was pretty good. Nothing exceptional but good enough. Thea pasta dishes we ordered were good though not as good as the calamares. The food wasn't bad . Neither was it memorable. Expected more from the good reviews
The venue is excellent. Compared to oyher the noise level in the open pat is low enough for conversation. Antipasta, Scallops and Cassatta napoletana were excellent. The Veal Involtini leass so. Did not have enough taste. Next time I will try the pasta instead. Presentation very good. Long time since fork and spoon were put on the table for the side potatoes and also for the dessert. Long black good.
This restaurant has a really good location in Martin place,the atmosphere looks fantastic .the price of food is reasonable ,but move to service it is not very satisfied ,the waiter always record wrong things,I was ordered Apple mix pineapple juice and no ice,they finally gived me ice orange juice .
The fish is not very fresh , noodles are very salty .lamp was quite nice .
Intermezzo is a reasonably priced Italian restaurant downtown. Service is very good, and the food, while not the best Italian I've had, was quite good. We had the Osso Bucco and the lamb tenderloin roll. Both really good. I'd recommend the restaurant .
food and service above average. Enjoyed our evening. The restaurant setting is very nice.
