Super fast service, we arrived at 6pm, order, ate and left by 6:30pm.
Great if you want a quick meal!
We were a group of 20 people and organising lunch for large groups can be challenging at the best of times. However the Appetito staff made the experience really pleasant; they were extremely friendly and accommodating.
Excellent value for money with the lunch special.
Food was amazing, will definitely visit again when in Sydney!
Great food, service and location
My colleague and I both enjoyed our food. It was delicious and the service was excellent.
Will go there again.
Great dining experience, would definitely recommend
Food and service were great. Good spot for dinner before a show at the Opera House.
Brilliant architecture and setting. 1st pasta was tasteless, think it was lasagne with radicchio. Ragout gnocchi, the gnocchi were delightfully soft . The flavour ordinary. Garlic bread was useless, no flavour. It's only the setting that's great. Won't be back
Great food, quick service, pleasant staff. Would definitely go again
Arrived late but was seated immediately.
Atmosphere was fantastic and the service top notch. Food was amazing and my party of 10+ had no complaints but heaps of praise.
Excellent venue in the Rocks. Nice peaceful vibe and very accommodating staff
Staff was very helpful and we had a nice afternoon.
Charming place, great food and service. Lovely dining out on the terrace but water view was minimal. Really good, authentic Italian pizzas, so don’t expect pizza chain store type, these are far better. Pasta was also very good.
A bit pricey but I can only imagine the huge amount of rent they’d be paying in this great location.
Very good service and food on a very busy night for restaurant. We had a lovely time!
We returned after a wonderful dining experience a year ago but unfortunately standards have dropped. Our waitress seemed disinterested and disconnected. We were not offered water, we never got our second appetizer until the main was about to be served and we had to ask fot it as well. Then we never got our brocollini side dish with the main and addressed this with the maitre d as we had finished the msin already. Our waitress never came back to ask how we found the meal so could not address this with her.. Very disapoointing and quite embarrasing as we had recommended the restaurant after our superb experience this time last year. Loved the pizza bread and warm olives were beautiful when we finally received them but the mushfoom risotto was lacking in mushrooms and depth of flavour and the squid ink pasta had very little seafood. Sorry to have to report this but had looked forward to returning and was a total let down. 8
We love coming to this place, every time the food is outstanding and we are never disappointed.
Lovely Italian spot on the rocks. Had the black squid pasta which was a little salty but nevertheless still tasty. Generous amount of calamari.
Great restaurant situated right next to Circular Quay. Especially nice during Vivid. Pizzas were some of the best I've had in Sydney.
Extremely happy with everything,food was delicious six of us dinning all meals lovely.
The bruschetta was weird. Wasn't even the typical ingredients used in bruschetta.
It was a crowded night. Understandably noisy, but it was difficult to get staff attention even with a hand up. Food was brought out but no plates were given until a secong waiter was stopped. So we were sitting there for a good 5 minutes watching our food cool before we could tuck in. It was a busy night, but we still expected better.
Staff are friendly which was good.
Food is nothing special and probably too expensive for the quality. Maybe because it is located in a sightseeing spot. I had only one bowl of pasta so my opinion should be wrong.
I sat inside and it was a really pleasant experience. I enjoyed all the food and drinks. I also enjoyed the screen photography and Italian music.
Family gathered for a lunch to celebrate my Dads 80th Birthday. Was very relaxed atmosphere with great food and helpful happy staff. Thanks!
Good classic Italian cuisine. We had pastas mainly and we all really enjoyed the meal.
I have been to Appetito a few times, 2 for lunch and once for dinner. The most recent time was for Mothers' Day lunch and it was a very enjoyable and it was a nice touch for the mothers to receive a glass of prosecco.
Thanks to the staff of Appetito for a great evening. Food was delicious, atmosphere was great, service was outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble.
Food was super salty. When we asked the waiter, she got the manager. Manager was apologetic and said they couldn’t do anything as the food “came pre-made in a bag”. Avoid this place
Lovely atmosphere and couldn’t fault the service. Staff were fantastic and attentive. Food was disappointing. Starter came out cold and the main courses were nothing more than average. Not hugely expensive compared to other Sydney restaurants but better value for money could be found elsewhere.
Thankyou , our table was ready on arrival, service was great, our waitress was attentive, and very accomodating as there were 14 people.
The food tasted authentic and the atmosphere was lovely. The overall noise level was low until the emergency alarm on the cruise ship across the street started blaring. Otherwise outstanding service with pleasant smiles, even at my horribly broken Italian, and delicious food at a reasonable price.
The food was really very poor. Clams and mussels were often empty shells and on a tasteless sauce. Bruschetta was really soggy. Salads poor quality was an extremely disappointing meal i would never return
Really great service. Very attentive to our needs and genuine servers. Quick service compared to other restaurants. I’ll definitely be coming back.
Casual atmosphere and good food. Could not fault the service.
Not only is the food amazing (try the gnocchi, it's that soft that you can chew it with your tongue), but the waitress we had was lovely and the place is very accommodating. A great wine list, too! Accompanied by the sound of the quiet, distant ocean, this fantastic restaurant has perfect ambiance for an intimate night out with friends or family. I can certainly say that I will be back!
Everything was okay, but for the price I'd expect a better meal.
Nice atmosphere sitting outside. Very good service
Delicious food as always and the lunch special is really great value!
Beautiful place amazing service and the food was amazing. Next time I am in Sydney will definitely be coming back . The staff couldn’t be anymore helpful
I have been here several times and everytime Appetito never fails to impress. The wait staff are friendly and helpful. My partner liked the sound of the Risotto Pesatura, but did not feel like Risotto. "No problem, which pasta would you like with it, we can make make it however you like". What a welcoming response! The wine list is delicious and not too expensive with a good selection of Australian and Italian wines. We ate early on a Friday night. The restaurant was half full so the meals arrived much quicker than we expected with delightful service. Highly recommended.
