Parmigiano Reggiano, Gaufrette Potatoes
Berkshire Pork Chop
BBQ Peppers & Apple Sauce
Restaurant ran out of a number of menu items.
Service was complacent and unprofessional.
Music was so loud that we were shouting at each other.
Food that we received tasted great!
so good, love this place, food and service always amazing !!
Was a great lunch overall, the only missing part was the service level
- Waited awkwardly out the front for 10 min before we were seated
- The waitress gave my table to the wrong people (human error and is completely fine, just putting it here for reference)
- Took way too long to order drinks
Just a little more engagement would be make the place amazing.
Great food and awesome service!
Food was great, service was ok, acoustics a real problem though. I was having a business lunch and couldn't hear the person I was with properly making it uncomfortable.
Tasty food, attentive service. We will be back.
Fantastic service, great atmosphere and wonderful food and wine.
Great food as always. Accomodated with a kids pasta that was also delish.
Only problem is THEY GOT RID OF THE FLAN!! What are you thinking Conti?!
Loved everything and tip top service. I do miss the beef dip! please bring it back
Every time we go for lunch the food is always great and it is quick and the service is fabulous
A fantastic evening- great food & service was fantastic
Five star experience. Food was impeccable and the staff were amazing. Can’t wait to revisit!
Absolutely stellar food, the atmosphere makes you feel like you’re in a neighborhood cafe in New York. Couldn’t have asked for a better place to try on our Sydney trip!
Loved it ... enjoyed the food and vibe at the bar
Great wine selection and very pleasant atmosphere.
The restaurant was energetic, The service we had been given was friendly, efficient and the waiter knows the menu. The food was amazing. My favourite is the steak and fries. The pannacotta and tiramisu dessert were amazing!
Great spot, great atmosphere, food was absolutely incredible & the staff are on top of everything. Will definitely be going back.
This is a wonderful restaurant. Delicious and original food, knowledgeable and engaging wait staff, good wine list and fun atmosphere. Will definitely become a CBD ‘go to’
The food is always amazing, but we got pretty poor service that day which was disappointing. Would still go back for that deli sandwich every day of the week though
As a foodie, it's my latest find and I've been telling all my friends and clients about your restaurant. When I initially visited your eatery, I enjoyed the pappardelle pasta & bucati pasta, especially the latter. It was arguably the best I've enjoyed over the last 40 years! I could not believe that it has been taken off the menu. When you are on a winner, you should stick to it. I've seen so many restaurants succeed and then fail because they change the winning formula. A case en pointe is a restaurant in the city, Leo. It serves the best pork and guess what? They then took it away. Now, if you walk past the restaurant, it is half empty when it was previously packed. Please bring these 2 dishes back! That being said, I enjoyed the pasta with the pork very much too. Your pork cutlet was also sensational and I have arranged for my colleague to take my clients to lunch there today.
Food delicious as always. Staff so lovely and helpful. Can't decide whether I like the CBD or Newtown the best!
I really enjoyed my dining experience yesterday, the food, service, wine and ambience was fantastic!
The staff were so lovely and warm and welcoming. Bright and cheery, despite wearing masks for the entire time, which we acknowledge and appreciate must be challenging. On arrival they were super accommodating to our vibe for the evening and we felt wholy loved and looked after throughout. Food was excellent and cocktails were fabulous and exactly what we had in mind. A splendid evening!!
I really enjoyed my night out at Continental Deli CBD. The service was exceptional and the food was tasty. I do think the price was quite steep for what we received but it's nice for a special occasion.
A good little lunchtime place to eat out with your loved one or enjoy a relaxed work lunch.
Great food and drinks... Well-mannered service!
Lovely food and good location for a work lunch or birthday
Impeccable service and always good food
Great food, wonderful staff and engaging surrounds.
Good is fabulous, as is the menu and staff. Cant hear each other talk but still worth five stars
Love this place. An underrated hidden gem in the CBD. Easily one of the best Mediterranean restaurants in Sydney.
Amazing cheese, meat and wine menu. Always a favourite
The service was very average - felt like I was being rushed out of my 8pm booking and no drinks were offered when we had finished ours
Very enjoyable experience, staff were lovely and attentive. Great ingredients, good for couples, small groups and good for sharing.
Great service, cocktails and bloody tasty food. And pouring the tinned cocktails at the table is just so damn fun.

Had a birthday dinner here with my friends, food was pretty yummy, loved their pasta dishes! The desserts were great as well! Service was very nice as well - but only down side is they are strict about time limits, so when it’s time for the next round, they’ll get you to leave.
Second time and food is excellent: uncomplicated, great flavours, well
executed and wine friendly.
Particularly impressed with the service. The team went all out to make us feel comfortable as it was the first time we’d taken our four month old to a restaurant. Was a little apprehensive because it was lunch in the law district, but no issues at all.
Amazing venue, great service and good atmosphere.
Took my partner here for our anniversary dinner. We had eaten at the Glebe location with friends and had loved it, so I thought let’s give the CBD location a try. Amazing food, friendly staff and a great atmosphere.
Food and service were wonderful. We had the banquet and it was delicious. The cocktails and wine perfect accompanying. The servers were lovely and attentive.
