The service is always great. The pizzas are the best and the Italian red wine from Montepulciano is almost as good as a Grange Hermitage without being quite as heavy and much cheaper!

The pizzas are the best and the service charming

We were sadly disappointed in The Italian Bar. The 2 pizzas we ordered were completely tasteless & for $28 each we expected way way more. The wine was good. The tables are to close together & $13 for 8 warm olives is bullshit.

About Italian Bar

The Best Bar None A platter of cured meats and a glass of chilled vintage Chianti sits comfortably alongside the iconic Vespa and Apecar parked in the doorway, offering a taste of what lays inside this boho Tuscan wine bar. As in Italy, the bar is the centre of social life and not just a place to drink. Italian Bar in downtown Paddington is no different. Established by last generation emigrant brothers and resident DJ’s Filippo and Simone Franchi, this is a place where you can pop in and out, sipping and munching all day long. Italian Bar’s menu is quintessentially Italian, featuring locally produced Italian products such as fior di latte mozzarella and cured meats made lovingly by the best Italian artisans. Antipasti is served throughout the day with a sprinkling of pasta, salads and seafood dishes on offer for the non-pizza lovers. If pizza is your thing then you can’t go past the zucchini gorgonzola special or the piazzaiolo special which is served with the proud Franchi brother guarantee. Italian Bar is open midday until late every day of the week except the 6pm Sunday evening shutdown. Best dish: Carpaccio Bresaola
