    We had an 8:30 pm reservation that was confirmed through The Fork, but when we got to the restaurant in time for the reservation, we were told that the kitchen closes at 8:30 pm. The restaurant had our 8:30 pm reservation, however. Why would a restaurant accept a reservation for the exact same time that its kitchen closes? We did not stay at the restaurant and ate elsewhere.

    The food was amazing, authentic and delicious with generous servings. Haven't had pasta that good in a long time, thank you! The service was a bit frazzeled but still super polite and attentive. Loved the location as well, tucked away under a huge cliff face in the historic, Sydney Rocks.

    Great location but service was not to standard and the food was expensive for what was received, in comparison to Sydney prices and other options nearby. We will not revisit.

    Nice restaurant with a good vibe. Lovely location with lots of outdoor seating. The prices are feasible and wine not overly expensive. Would def go again.

    Excellent spot for a quick and cheerful meal. Large servings more than are enough for two to share. Close to the bridge for a walk after or around the international boat terminal and if you’re lucky like we were you’ll see a massive body departing. .

    Been going there for 25 years when in Sydney. Food and service never disappoints. Reasonably priced and never leave they’re hungry. Only restaurant we go to when visiting Sydney

    One of those days.... food was excellent - but chaos in the service team nearly destroys the whole evening. We ordered Starter, second plati and a main course ....and everything was mixed up... pity.

    The food was quite good, but not exceptionally good. The waiters and waitresses are friendly and the atmosphere are very good. We enjoyed the dinner there. Judging from the reasonably pricing, it is worth visiting.

    We have been here before. It a good reliable choice in The Rocks. Good staple Italian fare and a convenient location and plea ty space for large groups. We have a lunch for 6 people and nobody had a y complaints.

    The food was great and also the service was great with a cosy family atmosphere. I recommend to have a try at caminetto restaurant at the Rocks

    The restaurant doesn’t receive/see The Fork bookings! So when we arrived, they didn’t know about our booking. The service was horrendous. All our food came out separately. One person had finished their meal altogether before someone had even received theirs. Drinks took forever to arrive. Wouldn’t recommend.

    The food was very average, the most unauthentic Italian food I’ve ever had. Very expensive for what you received. Why was there Salmon on the antipasto plate?

    If your looking for authentic Italian cuisine this is not it. Tasted a bit like reheated frozen pizza and the lasagne was similar to store bought packaged lasagne. Will not be going every again.

    Not a nice experience at all! Half of our party were seated outside and the rest inside. They had been waiting for an hour for us to arrive, however we were waiting inside. The service was unacceptable! I then received an email from the Fork to ask why we didn't attend! Won't be going back again.

    We went for lunch. The food was delicious. We sat outside so it was a bit cold - they had outdoor heaters but didn’t turn them on until we were about to leave Service was very good. I would definitely go back for the veal.

    The food is always great, I highly recommend this restaurant. Every time I have a group gathering I book Caminetto's.

    The food was sun standard. Not authentic Italian food at all. We asked for a pizza with bufala mozzarella. The waiter said they had run out yet the supplied a Caprese salad which had ample bufala mozzarella throughout the dish. The food was bland,. The location was stunning.
