Una Volta

Distance from us: 3 mins walking / 1 mins driving
King Street restaurant Una Volta is a classically romantic Italian restaurant, ideal for couples and small groups. Owner Nikki Bondini learnt all about Italian food culture during her time living in the northern Dolomites region, and when she returned to her native Australia she brought a little slice of Italy with her. The end result is a spectacular, candlelit restaurant where diners can enjoy three courses of epic Italian food. It’s truly spectacular.

Napoli Centrale

Distance from us: 9 mins walking / 3 mins driving
A truly great pizza is something of an artform. Thankfully, Napoli Centrale is here to bring us a slice (or two) of heaven, via its authentic Neapolitan pizzas. The pizzas are made in the traditional Neapolitan way, with the very best ingredients, even down to the proper Neapolitan flour. The tomato sauce is made with San Marzano tomatoes, which are grown in the shadows of Mount Vesuvius. And the end result is a taste sensation that you definitely need to try.

Few flavours compare to that of fresh, homemade pasta. Coal River and Co is a modern Australian restaurant with a twist. It specialises in the most amazing homemade pasta! The creative menu includes inventive pasta dishes like paradelle with black lip mussels, confit fennel puree and salsa rossa. We highly recommend the ricotta gnocchi with spring lamb, carrots, peas and mint salsa verde, too. They even do takeaways, if you fancy a cozy night in!
