Best Italian Fine Dining in Sydney

From bountiful bowls of pasta, delectable seafood dishes, amazing antipasto boards and mouth-watering tiramisu, Italian cuisine has it all. But if a trip to Italy isn’t on the cards right now, it doesn’t mean you can’t still take your tastebuds to the culinary destination.

So, what classifies a restaurant experience as “fine dining” as opposed to any other sort of dining? Well, fine dining refers to a restaurant experience that is more formal and of a higher quality compared to casual dining, the atmosphere is also usually more elegant and the food is served more formally.
