    Traditional tiramisu with their coffee is just a perfect companion for windy autumn day in sydney

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
