About Machiavelli Restaurant

Hidden away just beneath Clarence Street down a set of flagstone steps, Machiavelli Restaurant has been serving West Sydney locals for more than 30 years. Cured meats hang from sturdy crossbeams supporting walls with framed pictures, showcasing 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 regional ingredients come to the fore, with fresh fish delivered twice a day to match a rich cellar of Australian wine, sitting comfortably beside Italian drops. Begin your travels to Naples with ricotta stuffed zucchini flowers, tomato concasse and balsamic glaze; before delving into housemade pasta like pappardelle duck ragu, with rich Madeira sauce, thyme and cherry tomatoes.

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!
