    The food is very rich and high end, so the portions are smaller. Your waiter's advice about the specials should be ignored. The "fake scallop" is tasty but dissatisfying in the end. The bill was three hundred dollars for 2 people including tip! This is astronomical, but probably supply chain related.

    Bel & BrioResponded 2 days agoThank you for dining with us at Bel & Brio, Anthony. We're sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your experience as much as you had hoped and that the portion sizes didn't quite meet your expectations. We hope that you'll give us another chance in the future. Thank you again for dining with us and providing your feedback. It will help us improve our restaurant for future guests.

    Special pasta mushroom and truffle oil what’s not to love however no taste porchini mushroom flavourless and truffle flavour no existent - the pasta was cooked to perfection though. Brioche with caviar wasn’t balanced the caviar was actually overshadowed by mascarpone. The calzone was divine Service was pretty good I’ve had great experiences here before just an off night

    Bel & BrioResponded 2 days agoHi James, thanks for your feedback. I'm sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your meal as much as you have in the past - we'll pass on your comments to our team.

    the food was lacking in flavour. The pasta was over cooked. Whilst the wait-staff were lovely it was a long time between visits and they failed to even ask whether we wanted dessert or coffee. I was genuinely surprised at the overall lack of quality

We're sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy the food - we take pride in our dishes and would love to hear more about what you didn't like so that we can make the necessary adjustments.

    Sadly, although the pasta is made fresh, the overall quality of the food is average at best. You pay for the location and that's about it. The service was really, the restaurant is really nice too, but it doesn't stand up to any of the good Italian places in Sydney

    All waiters were friendly except one (I think he was the manager wearing different clothes to other waiters). He was Italian by the sound of his accent and he was very rude to my guests and I. No consideration whatsoever. He was rushing us to order and was very unhelpful when we asked certain things about the drinks menu. Overall very rude customer service from him which made the experience horrible. It was the first time a few of my guests met each other so his attitude towards us made the experience very uncomfortable. Additionally, our food was not very good. Over priced for what we received as all our pastas seemed old and the sauces did not seem fresh whatsoever. On top of this portions were very small but we all ate it anyway because we were very hungry. The ambience was a good vibe but the bad food and terrible customer service makes me reluctant to ever go back or recommend to a friend.

    Great food, great location, great service; overall great. Just didn’t like where I was seated. It was our anniversary and we were seated next to where the food was prepared and was lit too much so it didn’t feel as romantic. I also had the food out doors behind me, so there was a draft from outside making me cold and uncomfortable.

    Our evening at Bel & Brio was delightful. Our online booking got a bit muddled but once this was sorted out our dinner in the Corso part of the restaurant was great. My Caprese salad with Burata was a great entree as was my partner’s oysters with raspberry vinaigrette. Then came the fish of the day, grilled red snapper with charred vegetables and gnocchi with porcini mushrooms and pine nuts. Both very yummy and presented wel. Finally we shared the chocolate and almond desert which was just right. Our wait staff were very attentive and pleasant, giving helpful descriptions and advice when required. The wine was very good. A terrific restaurant for a special meal. Or pizza and pasta for less expensive dining.

    Nice food but poor service. We had to keep calling the waiter over. Also one of our cocktails arrived and half of it was missing - should’ve been charged half the price seeing as we got about 3 sips out of it. Shame. Lovely place and food but the service let it down considerably.
