This place is the Italian bomb, always great and always chaotic and fun and noisy. If only it was easier to get a table! Easy location for kids as they have some space in the outdoor area to at least wander, choose gelato, and not be in your lap the while time. Highly recommended!
A tavola Bondi
A Tavola Bondi was established in 2014 in iconic Bondi Beach. This second outpost has been described by some as Darlinghurst’s surfy sister. You can expect the same authentic Italian pasta here in this casual beach side location with an emphasis on fresh local and sustainable seafood.
Vino e Cucina
Vino e Cucina is the hottest new addition to the small but buzzing dining precinct of Five Ways Paddington. The brainchild of husband and wife team Michael Bengtsson and Julia Walker-Bengtsson.
Think Alfresco dining with a leafy, stone paved courtyard in the back. A gorgeous relaxed interior will have you feeling more like you are on holiday in Italy rather than in Five Ways Paddington. More tables line the footpath at the front allowing diners to watch the world go by over a bottle of wine.

The delicious Italian cuisine follows a philosophy which uses simple, quality ingredients and the kitchen’s preparation allows their true flavours to be enjoyed.
Ombretta is the creation of friends and business partners Niccoló Fagherazzi and Michael Schiavello.
Niccoló and Michael met in Venice in 2005 over a Campari where the first conversations began in earnest already hatching ideas for bar or restaurant ventures. The common thread was the will to simulate an Italian experience, simply, honestly and faithfully.
In one of the many conversations they distilled the projection of Ombretta in a few words:
Fresh, Seasonal, Cucina Povera.
Every recipe has a story, every story has a history and all this history is inextricably linked with tradition, culture and place. Most of this will be detailed in the cookbook everyone is waiting for from Ombretta.
