Bootleg Bar + Italian food is a cute and cosy 50s style Italian bistro, located on popular Victoria Street in Potts Point.  The restaurant is dimly lit, with retro style banquette seating, an impressive collection of old school ‘boom boxes’, tables placed closely together, a blackboard menu and, of course, a bar.  It has an intimate American modern 50s feel.

The service is friendly, but we come here for the food.  In fact, we come here for one dish. Fusilli with wild mushrooms, sage, cream and truffle.  Oh my!  That’s not to say there aren’t other fabulous dishes on the menu, believe us, we’ve tried our fair share and it’s all good, however, this mushroom fusilli is a dish we find ourselves dreaming about, and one we find ourselves returning to time and time again.  Please don’t ever take it off the menu!

The menu is simple style Italian, featuring entrees, pastas, mains and desserts, and there are always a few specials on the blackboard menu.  There is also a bar food menu, should you be looking just for nibbles and a glass of wine.  The wine list has an array of Australian, New Zealand and European wines to choose from, and they’re reasonably priced.  They also offer a brunch menu, complete with breakfast cocktails, should you feel the need to do it all over again the next day.

This is exceptional quality food and service, at very reasonable prices, served until late, and this is why we keep returning.  It’s why you’ll keep returning too.

In a nutshell:

Price:  $$  Appropriately priced considering the quality of the fare.
Fare:  Rustic Italian fare.  Blackboard menu.
Service:  Warm and friendly.
Location:  Situated on busy Victoria Street.
Ambience:  Trendy, relaxed, intimate, 1950s retro vibe.
