Great outdoor venue and friendly staff. Food was also very good. The only negative is that our meals weren't served at the same time. Would definitely recommend.
We had the prawn linguine and the lamb pizza. They were both nice dishes but my pizza didn't arrive until my husband had almost finished the linguine. It is a great venue and location.
Booking for 10, including 2 kids. 4 of us ordered berry mocktails. 5 of us tasted them & agreed the drink were too sour & slightly bitter. There was hardly any chorizos on the pizza. Pasta in the lobster pasta were still a bit hard. Crab pasta was very nice. Overall pasta was better than pizza.
The live music was fantastic however when the musicians had a break, loud music was played making it difficult to hear conversation at the table. Staff were friendly and helpful. Food and beverage delicious.
A really great atmosphere and casual dining spot for the family. The calamari is always excellent - tender and tasty. The kids loved their chosen pizza, and the dessert bar is worth checking out! Tonights choices where the creme brulee (excellent) and the hazelnut salted caramel (very fancy and tasty!)
Nice restaurant with a good selection of food and drinks at a good price. Staff kept telling us that they were “busy” but it didn’t seem that they were run off their feet. Waited to be seated for 10 mins (despite having a booking and there were empty tables when we arrived -we were on time). Waited for drinks for 45 mins meanwhile food had already been served and we had to chase up the waiter twice (they said they were busy at the bar). My husband was seated below a ceiling vent which was dripping on him. It was nice, food was good, staff were nice. We were just not the priority and didn’t have enough time with our waiter to address the dripping issue. A bottle of water for the table on such a hot night should not come 45 mins after asking twice, let alone the ordered drinks.
We had the chicken salad and the lamb salad and both were suburb! There was a huge queue to order drinks and food. Perhaps more staff could be put on during happy hour to hope. Otherwise great dining experience.
Great food, good service, nice atmosphere. Highly recommended! Crab spaghettini is awesome, as well as beef cheeks pasta. yum yum yum yum yum yum
Service was good but the cost was over the top for what we got. Especially when so many other venues in area offer better food and a free drink for cheaper.
Has a different feel to the bridge street restaurant, pizza was good as always
We have been to FF in Darling Harbour several times but today I would have to say was the worst experience we have ever had. There were not enough staff on and there was a long line to order food and drinks. Some of the staff that were there were hanging around and not doing anything. I got an Aperol Spritz and it was so weak I couldn't even taste the Aperol, It comes out of a machine and the mix clearly needs to be adjusted. I had the gnocchi and it tasted floury and bland. My husband had the chorizo risotto and he wasn't happy with that either. Unfortunately not a great experience this time around.
I love Fratelli Fresh usually but took my visiting family to the restaurant at Darling Harbour and could not have been more disappointed. The staff were rude and unhelpful. Our table wasn’t ready for 15mins after we arrived, no apology and we were directed to wait at a bar with 2 seats (for 6 of us) and the bar was closed. Again no apology. We had to order at the bar rather than table service and were told our starters and mains had to arrive together, no other option. We had pre-booked a table earlier in the day but I think we were seated in the casual walk-in area. The waitresses were extremely rude and unhelpful, particularly the front of house person and the waitress behind the bar who took our order. Again, I love other Fratelli Fresh restaurants but the food at this one was very average. My sister ordered a pizza with scallions. There were no scallions on the pizza. The waitress took the pizza away (again no apologies) and brought it back 90secs later with lots of raw scallions dumped on top. Very disappointed and could not recommend.
Had a friendly welcome and opted to sit outside and order at the bar. We had the Pappardelle and the ravioli and both dishes were delicious. Darling Harbour is a great venue and we will definitely be back!
Good place, will definitely go there again
The set up, food and prices were great! Drinks were amazing and so glad it was set to start on happy hour. Service could’ve been a lot better as no one knew what was happening and we kept getting told different things from every waitress/waiter. The Aladdin show was unbelievable and the kids had so much fun
Great value for money - great for the kids. Good food and service. Thanks. Now I have to fill the review with extra characters to hit 120 and I am done!
First time dining at Fratelli Fresh Darling Harbour. Have heard great feedback before booking and was not disappointed at all. Thank you. Everything was perfect!
My friends and I was able to enjoy happy hour for 30mins and the staff were very accomodating and understanding. The food came out quickly and we really enjoyed the calamari and garlic bread. The drinks were a bit slower. Would come again!
Who doesn't love 2 for 1 Pizzas? (Weds lunch special) ...a liiiittle bit too crusty for my liking but nice to dip in the arrancini sauce! Yum! Staff were attentive, and I liked that they've changed their ordering system (used to have to go up and order/pay)! Overall, a very nice experience and great long lunch catch up with friends!
Service was very slow and our mains all came out at separate times, between the 1st and last dish there was a 15 minute gap. The food was good once we eventually got it though.

Set in the heart of the bustling Darling Harbour is Fratelli Fresh. This thriving venue is a favourite of corporates on the hunt for a quick breakfast bite or a lunchtime feast - what more can we say, this glorious Italian resto is just what the doctor ordered.
Hunker down with a bowl of pasta or sink your teeth in to a slice of gourmet pizza that’s been pulled straight from the wood fire oven - it really doesn’t get any better.
Best dish: any of their pasta dishes.
