What a great find on Enmore Road 1 minute to Enmore Theatre. Lovely Italian restaurant. Food delicious very home cooked style food, fresh, fast and filling. Entree size meals are still large. Well priced. Very friendly staff and decor is lovely white tablecloths add special touch. We had linguine with Moreton Bay Bugs (fresh), spaghetti bolognese, fettuccine carbonara, herb bread, desserts are a must chocolate fondant and chocolate and hazelnut tart. Definitely recommend this place. Great find.

Oscillate Wildly

Reviewed By 23PeterJ - Sydney, Australia

Visited this restaurant recently for a special dinner and we were not let down. Excellent food and wine and good friendly but not intrusive service.
This restaurant only serves a degustation menu but it is a great experience with lots of different and enjoyable tastes. While each serve is not very big by the end of the night we had enjoyed each course and had eaten quite enough.
We selected the matching wines with our meal and they were different and very enjoyable. They were mainly European which I would not normally try so was an enjoyable together with one very nice South Australian red.
The service was also very good and while they were very efficient, friendly and informative about the food and wine we were receiving they were not intrusive.
Overall a great evening at a very high quality restaurant that I would be glad to visit again.

Delhi ‘O’ Delhi presents a menu with a mix of recipes steeped in both time-honoured tradition and with the kind of modern innovation which assigns a definite WOW! factor.

Reviewed By bckpckrau - Melbourne, Australia

The great reviews here aren't warranted unless stylish decor makes for a high rating. Sure compared to average suburban Indian restaurants it's fancier, but the portions are tiny (especislly the rice) and the service is faux-high end, but ends up being intrusive and terse. Our table had the butter chicken, lentil dumplings which were spicier than expected and avergae in flavour, but the vegie samosas were nice. Prices were exhorbitant for what it was and how small the portions were. Our orders were taken brusquely and our plates were swept away before all of us had finished eating. Rude. We went elsewhere for dessert. Totally not recommended.

Thai Pothong

Reviewed By Julie M - Ryde, Australia

Took close friends here to farewell them back home to Canada, also my birthday. One of the best Thai restaurants I have been to. Alex our waiter was attentive and very friendly - along with all the staff. The cocktails were amazing and the food exceptional! And then there was the surprise birthday gift and dessert - with a happy birthday song by staff. Don't let the size of restaurant fool you - the service, food and the buzz the restaurant had was second to none. Then the $$$$ to spend at their gift store was amazing. We will certainly recommend. Thank you to all.

Bloodwood Restaurant & Bar

Reviewed By Ansavon - London

I asked some friends for restaurant suggestions in the inner west and three of them came back with Bloodwood as a recommendation. We were not disappointed. The food is shared plates, we had a range of dishes including scallops, brisket, fried chicken (particularly good), socca and the brisket & polenta chips. Wine was also great and the service was friendly. Would definitely recommend this place. Great for a small group of friends or a date night.

Cow and Moon Artisan Gelato

Reviewed By LincolnB1 - Glenmore Park, Australia

I love gelato!
I simply love the stuff… So much so that every second year or so that we head to Italy, we always go back to Cortona find our favourite gelato store on Via Nazionale... all that other little one just off the back of Piazza Nova in Rome to savour this most delicious of deserts…
For many years I convinced myself that a certain Darlinghurst gelato store (which has now turned into a chain operation) is the best gelato I had eaten outside of Italy… That was until I put the first spoonful of cow and moon gelato into my mouth.
The gelato at cow and moon is incredible. Quite simply the best gelato I have had in many years!!
This little place in Enmore packs the crowd - you certainly have to queue up and wait your turn… In the time that you are waiting you can select from 20 or 30 different varieties of the most beautiful looking gelato all named simply for exactly what they are.
I had the three gelato bowl I can't tell you how much it was, actually I don't care how much it was… All I know is this is the best gelato hands down!!
The gelato is rich and creamy and really milky… The flavours are amazing we tried six different flavours between the two of us and were in heaven!
If you love your gelato this is simply THE place to come.... other competitors could do well to come and taste proper good gelato should taste like! chains down mean quality is maintained... often it isn't... Burke street bakery can attest to that!
For me now to drive from Penrith to Enmore will be the only one I will take when I want great gelato!

sixpenny

Reviewed By billeclass - Sydney, Australia

If there was such a thing as minimalist dining, Sixpenny would be it. Everything is refined sophistication. No unnecessary sauces, smears, seeds, flowers or dusting. It is not every restaurant that a chef of the year serves you your order. But this is how it's done at Sixpenny. The person who cook will serve and explain the course to you. Be great if other restaurants could do that.
My only gripe is that the three desserts were all ice cream based. Surely a hot one could be thrown in? Also there is no hot expresso coffee available to warm you up after. Otherwise an enjoyable evening, excellent food and service

Black Star Pastry

Reviewed By Slade H - Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

After all the hype my wife and I decided to visit Black Star for a piece of their strawberry and Watermelon cake. It was honestly underwhelming. The cream was fresh, the cake beautifully to look at but just didn’t have the flavor i Had hoped for. . We also tried the pistachio zen cake and a cinnamon scroll. The Zen cake was gluey, thick and over sweet. The lemon curd was the best part. The cinnamon scroll was the best part and tasted light a good bit of cinnamon.
So yes to the scroll for us and no for the 2 cakes.
