With experience at Critini’s and Merivale’s Uccello, Chef Akira Urata is well schooled in Italian cuisine, and he and his team deliver the more-ish dishes synonymous with Fratelli Paradiso. Now fifteen years on, this largely unchanged Potts Point institution with the unmistakable vibe of a bustling Italian trattoria is more popular than ever. The renowned warm and convivial service contributes to the restaurant’s loyal patronage, while the well-priced wine list and theatre of celebrities and locals passing by all make for a memorable experience.
The menu is among the most consistent, dependable and enjoy-able in Sydney, a key factor to its success. By way of example, the pappardelle ragu is all about nurturing and patience, and that is clearly evident from this team in the kitchen. Similarly, lasagnetta bolognese has texture, concentration of flavour, and – refreshingly – is seasoned to the edge.
PSST! Without doubt, the tiramisu is one of the best served in Sydney!
