Review of The Restaurant Pendolino
FEATURED IN: TOP 10 ITALIAN RESTAURANTS
The Restaurant Pendolino, located in the charming old world Strand Arcade, is the epitome of Italian cuisine. This is a restaurant that has stood the test of time. These days new restaurants may be opening on every street corner, yet Pendolino is not fussed and steadily goes about what they do so well. Providing stunning Italian cuisine.
The restaurant is dark and moody (note your iPhone torch may come in handy when reading the menu) and we think it suits the corporate set or a romantic dinner.
It’s fair to say chef and owner Nino Zoccali knows a thing or two about Italian cuisine. The restaurant specialises in regionally-inspired dishes with a focus on extra-virgin olive oils (which you can buy!) and artisinal pastas, all made on the premises of course.
To top it off, you’ll find old fashioned service that’s slick and fine tuned. No wonder Pendolino has been a staple on Sydney’s best restaurant lists for years.
Oh and should you be looking for private dining options – they happen to have a beautiful private room.
Good to know – Nino also owns a more casual restaurant, La Rossa Bar & Pizza conveniently located just at the other end of the floor.
