Alfredo’s Restaurant, Sydney, Australia

In the laneway next to the Sydney Harbour Marriott is Alfredo’s Restaurant.

The quality of the food here is superb.

I ordered the bruschetta which tasted fresh and refreshing on soft fluffy bread – a great starter dish.

For my main I ordered the large pheasant ravioli which would have to be one of the best dishes I’ve eaten this year – I could have ordered a second one it was just so good.

For desert I had to order the tiramisu, as I try to do in most Italian restaurants, and it too was perfect.

Foodwise, a great restaurant.

What wasn’t so good was the service. Rather than look after their customers the staff just chatted away between themselves, or started cleaning around the bar area totally ignoring that customer were waiting to be served.

While the food was spectacular the quality of the service was probably bad enough that I won’t be returning.
