Sydney (Darlinghurst) A Tavola- Lic and BYO

Postby Frank123 » Sun May 10, 2009 7:09 am

Cuisine: Italian
Service: Very professional, friendly
Food: Outstanding- hand made pasta, superb ingredients
Value: 8/10
Ambience: Busy, communal table at front, smaller tables at back
Glassware: quite good
Wine list: Short, functional, reasonable
BYO Details: $15 per bottle (I think)
Offline Prospect: Either book whole front room or back room (20 ish each) should work.

Score: For me, the best QPR Italian in Sydney by a fair margin.

They'd want to be with their tiny wine list.

Yes, they do take bookings, and I have BYO'd there a number of times.
Agreed, the wine list is super short, but that really isn't a problem if:
1. You're BYO ing
2. You're happy to go to the bottle shop across the road to replace any corked, oxidised, etc wines you might have brought to the restaurant. The bottle shop (forget the name) has a huge selection of local and imported wines- I'd be very surprised if satisfactory replacements couldn't be sourced there!

I've been here twice now. The pasta is truly amazing. I realised that I’d never actually known the proper taste of pasta before eating here. They hang long strips of it over rods in the restaurant. I can also recommend their tiramisu.

Finally went last night. As good as I expected. Awesome pappardelle with pork ragu. Took a Roda II 2001 which went beautifully with the food. :) :)
