Italian
In Italian Stuzzichino means means “try a little bit of everything”. Stuzzichino was Sydney’s first Italian (rather than Spanish) “tapas” restaurant. Located inside Bankstown Sports’ La Piazza precinct, Stuzzichino has been given rave reviews for its excellent seafood-focused menu, the wonderful service from experienced wait-staff and the tempting wine list.

I think it would have been more like a restaurant if there was a full wall between the tables and the bathrooms.
Could also completely section off between the pizza bar section and the restaurant section to make it more like fine dinning.
Service was excellent, couldn't fault that at all.
Food was good, wouldn't say worth the money though.

Love Stuzzichino! The variety and taste of food is amazing. One of my favourite restaurants. I’ve been coming here for years and always left satisfied. The hardest thing is deciding which dish to order.

We had the most amazing night and the food as always is exceptional. The chef was fantastic and obliging and our waiter George was so attentive and so helpful with deciding on the menu.
We highly recommend you go there. You know you can trust the quality and the flavour every single time, always consistent. The seafood always fresh
Thank you to everyone at Stuzzichino and La Piazza for a fabulous night and meal.

Had a great night the food was lovely and presentation up there, however we ordered halloumi cheese and was advised by the staff member that there are only 3 pieces to a serving and if we would like we could get another piece at an additional charge, so of course we agreed as there was 4 of us, well you could imagine what we thought when we were charged $11 for an extra piece bringing our total to $30 for halloumi, that was highway robbery. Wasn’t till the bill came that we realised how much they charged us.

I booked the wrong restaurant (😮) but we were all very happy with the food. We ordered 2 pastas & 2 pizzas. I didn’t overly like your wine list and thought your prices were on the high side for what you offered. I will bring my family back

Service was great when we arrived, although as the restaurent started to fill up the service dropped. Our dirty plates were in front of us for over 20 minutes and we had to ask for the bill, we were not offered coffee or dessert.

One of the best Italian restaurants in Sydney in my opinion when it comes to pasta and pizza. Set inside La-Piazza, resembling a cosy Italian street. Belucchi seafood pizza is highly recommended. Good selection of imported and local wines.

Have been here several times and always happy. However last Saturday was disappointed having to ask 3 times for a drink, a mix up with coffees and the attitude of your female waitress.
Pasta was not drained well was very soggy this left disappointed. Hopefully this was a one off experience as always been happy there.

The food was great, but the service was very poor. We were seated quickly and then forgotten about. Had to ask 5 times for a drinks and then 3 times for the bill. The staff were aware that we were going to a concert upstairs

Have been going to this restaurant for years it has always been exceptional but disappointed in the new menu was the best tapas ever now the tapas menu has been cut in half no more Italian sausage no more mushrooms personally we were disappointed our main reason for going there was for the tapas which was fabulous we have recommended to so many people for this reason and took some friends and they wanted to taste the tapas but with such a limited menu we ordered other things also the prices have gone up and the servings appear to be smaller I will no longer recommend this restaurant or go there myself anymore so sad was fantastic. One final the service was still great.

Went on Friday night, it wasn't very busy. First we got a wrong pizza, but after checking we got the right pizza. We were not offered any water at the table and when we finally got to ask for it, it was plonked on the table so we had to serve ourselves. Lots of staff around but customer service was'nt high on the agenda. We all decided that we would go somewhere else next time.

Enjoyed our first visit to Stuzzichino for a family birthday get together.
The food we chose from the extensive Italian themed menu was fabulous with very generous portions and supported by excellent customerservice. Very interesting and tasty entree of deep fried olives stuffed with fetta served with a garlic aoli. My delicious mixed seafood grill was so large I had trouble finishing it.
I appreciated that they moved us inside the main restaurant area as initially our booked table was outside in La Piazza, which was noisier and not as cosy.
Loved the lighting and red check tablecloths as well as the cosy table settings.
The only downside is that it is still very noisy and so a little hard to have a conversation, but it is much noisier outside. Because of the noise level, we decided to go elsewhere for dessert and to finish our conversation ( we chose San Churro, The Chocolatier, also in Bankstown Sports Club.)
All.in all a great night and recommended for both intimate gettogethers and fun groups, just be aware of the noise before you go.

The food, especially the pizza, was excellent and the service good, considering we went on a busy Saturday night.
However, the noise level was unacceptable for us. We couldn't talk to each other! The is by no means the fault of the restaurant. It was Saturday night at Bankstown Sports Club. We have learnt our lesson and will definitely be back for the great food and service, but on a week night !

Food was good but the service was the biggest let down. Had to ask for the menus despite being seated for awhile. Also, had to constantly try and get the waiters attention even though there were so many workers standing around. Would not come back because of the poor service.

It was mostly ok and we were very happy with the variety of the menu. We decided to go with entirely a Tapas Menu with no mains but I asked them to space the delivery of the food - bring half the dishes and once we had finished them then bring the remainder. This did not happen unfortunately which meant we had no space and some of the dishes went cold. The food we received was otherwise nice.

After we had finished our Tapas we wanted to have Desert but had to call for service and for our table to be cleaned up as Service Staff were more interested in cleaning up empty tables etc rather than attending to remaining customers in the restaurant.

We go there a lot my family were always happy with the food and service
But this time they changed the menu from a lovely book with so many choices to a two sided laminated menu it looks and feels like a bistro menu not quality Italian food.
Very disappointed in the restaurant this time won’t be back until the menu is changed to a more appropriate one for that restaurant
Thank you

The venue was good. The restaurant's atmosphere was a bit chaotic. The tables were very much close to each other. If it wasn't rude to dismiss or change the waiter waiting for us, we would have. Overall the food was good although took a little longer to be served. You should order your main together with your entrée so that you won't wait longer. We went there on a Saturday night that's probably why it's so busy. The portion was okay for the price. The Zucchini flowers for the entrée had too much tempura batter and a bit oily,; didn't taste much the filling. The calamari fritti were crunchy in the outside and melting in the mouth - tender in the inside. The Risotto Primavera was a bit bland, lacks seasoning. The Bugs alla Griglia were good but the bugs itself seem to be frozen and thawed, doesn't have any taste. The Tortellini alla Boscaoila and the Vitello alla Parmigiana ware amazing. They were the favourite dish of the night. The tortellini were so yummy and the eggplant on the veal was amazing!

The layout and ambience was good and we loved the service especially that of Dominic. He was really helpful with our selection of various dishes as we wanted to try a bigger variety but in smaller quantities. The wine we selected was reasonably priced but we thoroughly enjoyed the drop. Will definitely go back.

After booking on line, there was no table reservation for my party. The service was extremely poor, glasses never cleared from the table, food took forever to arrive, no service at all. Very disappointing experience, will think twice before going back.
