Loud, confused and service is not very attentive. Overpriced. Drive a bit further for something better.


The decor is lovely and gives off a very authentic Italian feel. The staff are friendly, however not very attentive. The food is average, in particular the squid ink risotto. It is a dish that should not be eaten as a main; after the first few spoonfuls the taste becomes overpowering and almost sickening. The linguine con salsiccie e porcini was good.


Although expensive for its location and size the food is by far the best I have eaten. Been there many times and eaten so many different things. Menu has allot to choose from which I like and service is professional. Bread is warm and freshly made. I have been to many restaurants around sydney and for food and service its still my favourite!



By far some of the best food I've had in my life. It's not worth going on a budget, but there is no compromise in quality. The pizzas would be the best value for size. Noone is left waiting too long for their meals. I recommend trying specials and dishes that aren't found at every Italian restaurant. Candelori's convinced me that I can try different all depends on the way it's cooked and accompanied.
