Great food, fantastic night! Expect to pay $35 for a dish of pasta, but its well worth it. With the entrées made in front of your eyes. We were so full with the antipasto plate that we had to share the main meal. My husband had still room for desert though :-) Plan to come back every Friday! Plus no need to book, plenty of space available if you come around 7 o'clock. Thank you!

Machiavelli Restaurant Overview

Hidden away just beneath Clarence Street down a set of flagstone steps, Machiavelli Restaurant has been serving West Sydney locals for more than 28 years. Cured meats hang from sturdy crossbeams supporting walls with framed pictures, showcasing members of the rich history behind a traditional Italian menu, which journeyed from Naples to Sydney with Giovanna Toppi and a suitcase of lessons from her mother. Organic greens and quality regional ingredients come to the fore here, with fresh fish delivered twice a day to match a rich cellar of Australian wine sitting comfortably beside Italian offerings. Begin your travels to Naples with grilled scampi, before delving into housemade pasta options like the ribbon fettuccine duck ragout with a rich Madeira sauce, fresh thyme and cherry tomatoes.

Best Known For

    At Machiavelli, come for the atmosphere and people-watching, but stay for the impeccable service and equally impeccable, quality Italian food.
