The classic European menu thoughtfully constructed by Chef Kevin Coux serves this grand dame of Sydney CBD restaurants well.
Now in its 21st year, it’s as popular for a candle-lit dinner as it is for a business lunch. Bambini Trust offers French and Italian style and elegance matched with a knockout wine selection. The dark wood panels, ornate mirrors, chandeliers and white linen set the scene for a special occasion in the historic sandstone building that houses the restaurant. The active central kitchen is the focus of the dining room.
Start with a seasonal aperitif and well-selected antipasti, including aged pecorino Romano and Ligurian olives. From the pasta selection, try the signature ‘Bambini’ spaghettini, beautifully al dente, with plump Yamba prawns swimming in a rich chilli and garlic sauce. Cotoletta Milanese is a crisp parmesan-crumbed veal cutlet with aromatic fried sage leaves, lounging on a perfectly charred wedge of bittersweet golden endive. Ramp it up with truffled parmesan French fries.
PSST! If you prefer al fresco dining, you can choose an outside table and look across to Sydney’s famous Hyde Park.
