Absolutely one of the best Italian place in Sydney. The food is just amazing and unique!

The menu has changed (maybe even the chef) since my last visit and unfortunately the food wasn’t nearly as good this time. It is now Italian and Japanese fusion. The flavours just didn’t hit the mark. Macaroni waffle wasn’t very good. The spaghetti in the crab spaghetti was like cheap ramen or asian instant noodles. Service was still wonderful and the restaurant has a great vibe but they need to bring back the old menu.
Hi Brian, Thank you so much for the review. It's fantastic to hear you enjoyed the venue and service element of your experience. Casoni has always been an Italian restraunt influenced by the flavour profiles of Asia. All pasta including the spaghetti is made in house daily. The menu does still change weekly, if something wasn't to your taste chances are it will have been replaced by something new and exciting by the next visit.

Casoni never disappoints. Delicious food, great selection of wine & warm personable service. If you haven’t had their pumpkin ravioli or crab spaghetti yet get yourself down there!
Hi Harry, Thanks for the great review! Always a pleasure to have you in the venue!

Excellent service and lovely ambiance/feel. Some of the dishes left me wanting more flavour with certain elements of the dish taking away flavour. Cute little space which I would possibly only go to for drinks.
Hi John, Happy to hear you enjoyed the service and venue, the food menu along with drink list is updated weekly. If something wasn't to your taste something it will potentially have replaced it by the time of your next visit. Looking forward to welcoming you in again.

Hi, I’m a long-time fan of Casoni and I was so excited to come back again! However, our meal wasn’t as we’d hoped. We all agreed upon it that there was no outstanding flavour in many of the dishes, unfortunately. Nothing really packed a punch but hopefully when we come again sometime, we’ll leave much more satisfied!
Hi Chris, Thanks for the feedback. Hopefully you will be back soon.
