Read the tips and yeah the pasta is not amazing, but the sum of it all is better than the parts. The main draw is the gelato; zabaglione, tiramisu and passion fruit being our personal favs.
If Bar Italia fell in the woods, would Leichhardt still exist? This institution is still the goto place for great gelato, as well as a cool place to just sit sipping a good, strong coffee.
Cash only & no table service. They will give u a tray to carry stuff to ur table if u ask for it! Lactose intolerant (or just prefer ur milk skinny/light), don't bother! Full fat is all u get here.
Whatever you do, do not drink their coffee. Terrible is an understatement and to make matter worse they make you carry your coffee to your table. Worse service ever. Would never come here again.
Revolting! Disgusting service, overcooked pasta with prawns the size of a fingernail and clearly not fresh. Waiter made a huge deal about getting an extra wine glass by throwing order book on counter!
How does this place survive? No milkshakes, no ice, run out of everything - someone needs to tell them we're not in the 90s anymore and to get with the programme.
The tiramisu here is the best I've ever had! So much mascarpone cream that its more like a mouse :-)
No skim, no soy, no decaf! The real deal. Awesome coffee and the affogato is worth the visit alone.
Go the toblerone gelato. Massive chunks of crunchy nougat and chocolate hidden inside!
Traditional tiramisu with their coffee is just a perfect companion for windy autumn day in sydney
They do gelato here really well. Gelato keeps bringing me back...... Coffee is nice.
Must try the gelato....$3.50 gets you a huge overflowing cup of goodness!
Try the mascarpone dessert in the fridge behind the barista. Exceptional.
Cheap and cheerful pasta with the second best gelato in Sydney - head to Pompeii's in Bondi for the best.
Great pasta, great gelato (love the mango and strawberry ones).
Nice size serve for $12 eat in. Cute rear courtyard
The tiramisu gelato is to die for... real cakey chunks throughout... nom
The best pistachio and coffee flavoured gelato by far
Get the pistachio flavoured gelato. You won't regret it.
Bring cash. Don't accept credit cards or EFTPOS. Great pasta though!
The tiramisu gelato probably the best in Sydney!
Try the hazelnut gelato. Absolutely worth it.
Pistachio gelato is amazing! Tastes like real pistachios with none of that artificial flavoring crap.
A classic stop when you are in Leichhardt with amazing Gelato.
Penne melanzane is the best! Great gelato too!
It's ok but I'll never get why this place is so famous. It all feels a bit cheap.
Try the amatriciana. Coffee is tops, but on a hot day get the iced version.
Excellent and the serving size is generous!!!
Do you like Lasagna? It's hard to beat the Lasagna here. It's rich, meaty and Mmmmm!
Hazelnut gelato has real hazelnut chunks!
Food is overrated here but have great Gelato and Coffee!!
Puttanesca all the way!!! And a double order of garlic bread, please!!!
Coffee and cannoli at the end of the night. Can't be beat.
Get the 4 scoop stack.
The pistachio gelato is the bomb!
Try the chocolate affogato!
No skim, no soy, don't even ask - love it
