About La Favola

When cravings call for what only authentic Italian can deliver, make your way along bustling and vibrant King Street in Sydney’s prominent suburb Newtown, to discover La Favola. Wide, bi-fold front windows greet diners with drifting aromas escaping the kitchen, as they enter to find a modern dining space of high ceilings, hanging, potted greenery and copper pendent light installations, contrasting well with white brick walls and timber stools set at low tables. Italian Chef Fabio Stefanelli has crafted a menu offering dishes which are entirely made in house, with a fusion of native ingredients and Italian tradition. Twirl a fork around pasta plates like porcini Mafaldine, osso bucco and ox cheek ragu; or slice a knife into perfectly cooked tomahawk steak, with a choice of sauce and sides.

Best pasta in Sydney
The food is outstanding. You can see and taste they are really careful in giving the best quality food. Price affordable and great service.



Ottimo !!



Finalmente !!!!!!
Un salto nel passato. Ho rivissuto quei momenti indimenticabili ed impressi nella mia testa, di cui godevo nei giorni di festa in famiglia quando ero in Italia. Per noi in Italia non esiste un pranzo senza vedere in tavola un primo piatto. Se è fatto poi con prodotti freschi e di qualità, abbinati alla passione, tradizione e professionalità meglio ancora. Ho conosciuto FAVOLA, tramite alcuni amici, me ne avevano parlato con tanto entusiasmo. Finalmente ho avuto modo di andare e provare. Ero con alcuni amici italiani, siamo rimasti tutti sbalorditi, TUTTO ESTREMAMENTE BUONO. Ritorneremo sicuramente, così avremo modo di non dimenticare tutto il buono che abbiamo lasciato in Italia. Unico consiglio che posso dare a chi vorrà provare questo emozionante godimento è quello di prenotare in anticipo. Purtroppo il localino era pieno, abbiamo atteso circa 30 min prima di entrare. Solo dopo abbiamo avuto modo di capire perché ci fosse così tanta gente.........GRAZIE CHEF FABIO !!!! A Presto!
