A Sydney Classic Over the past 21 years, Buon Ricordo has fed everyone from Cate Blanchett to the Packer family, and it’s not hard to see why. Order right at this established restaurant and you’re in for a real treat. Chef and restaurateur Armando Percuoco is all about keeping dishes pared back, and letting flavours speak for themselves. To take full advantage of the food here, stick to the entrees and pastas, and share them to sample as much of Buon Ricordo’s authentic Italian cooking as you can. The parmesan-cream fettuccine, with its truffled fried egg, is a dish that regulars won't let retire from the menu, so you’d be silly not to give it a whirl. From the jacketed wait-staff; dishes finished off tableside; old world wines; ironed tablecloths; upholstered high-back chairs; and a soundtrack, not a playlist playing softly in the background, you can see why diners hold this place so close to their hearts. Best dish: parmesan-cream fettuccine
