Lovely lunch and afternoon at Kondalilla Restaurant- Kondalilla Falls and Eco Resort. If you want a quiet, intimate little restaurant that feels far from the crowds this is it. Lunch at our own table in the restaurant area, then cheeseboard wine/tea in the lounge in front a fireplace and live music from our friends, Never Two Late. Would love to visit at night. Sooo cosy.

About the restaurant
Tucked down a laneway, housed in an industrial building, you'll find our quirky pizzeria. Our vibe is super casual and we love to see our customers sharing pizzas, beers and enjoying life. Our space is ideal for large groups, but also for families and couples.

Were all about the pizza! Pizza Napoletana is authentic pizza from Naples, and we make it according to the generations-old technique....with just a little of our own twists here and there. Our dough is made in-house and fermented for a minimum of 24hrs to create a tasty and light base - minimal yeast so no bloating here. Then its hand-stretched, topped with quality ingredients imported from Italy AND sourced locally, and cooked at a fiery 400 degrees.

We do other stuff as well - starters, sharers, salads, homemade desserts, and gelato. Plus cocktails, imported and locally brewed beers, and some carefully selected wines from independent wineries.

About the restaurant
250 Grammi is a concept born in D&D’s mind many years ago.

The goal was to share with people Italian authenticity with a twist.

No more main meals but a lot of different dishes to be shared, like an Italian Sunday lunch with friends and family

250 Grammi is the weight of the dough ball before its evolution: from a combination of grains and flours through to a long maturation to become an amazing outburst of flavours in the form of a pizza

To compliment all of this, 250 Grammi have sourced a perfectly matching wine list, which proveniences range from Italy to France to Australia & more

Thank you for sharing this experience with us
The 250 Grammi Family.

All bookings will have a 90 minute time limit.
10% Surcharge will be applied on Sundays.
17% surcharge will be applied on public holidays.

Excellent food and service. Very welcoming. Wheelchair friendly and accessible. First time dining in an authentic Italian restaurant and we WILL return! Thankyou to the male staff member who explained how all the meats and cheeses were made on the wooden platter for two. He was awesome! Thanks again 250 Grammi🫶

Lovely food but my daughter had trouble selecting a dish as she is vegan & there was only one thing on the menu for her to choose. Staff very helpful & friendly & ambience good.
