    Excellent everyday Italian food- second visit and will go again. Perfectly cooked calamari, generous prosciutto and mozzarella, wonderful duck papardelle, gnocchi Gorgonzola and veal scallopini followed by a really good trio of cannolis. Limoncellos to finish the dinner- attentive staff and reasonable cost considering the serves and quality of fare.

    Serving size is way too small. I was still hungry after the meal. It is just ridiculously expensive restaurant. I don’t really recommend it to anyone unless you want to get ripped off.

    Excellent spot for a high quality business lunch. Really recommend the food and service. Be prepared to spend some decent dosh, but well worth it to entertain clients or shout staff a special lunch/dinner

    Another great Saturday night dinner at Machiavelli's. Authentic Italian cuisine at its best with great waiters that add to the Italian experience. Our friends were first-time diners there and very impressed

    The food is ok but i think Overpriced for quality. Wine selections ok. Dont like the bill where service charge & credit charge already added & then asking for a tip - too cheeky buyer beware.

    Whenever I go to Sydney overnight, I try to fit in lunch or dinner at Machiavelli’s, it never disappoints. The food and the service is wonderful.

    The service was amazing and the food beyond incredible.. the only disappointment was that I did state on my booking that it was for my sons 18th birthday... I thought it was wonderful that they brought out a beautiful little tiramisu cake with a candle ... then charged me for it... single mother doing something special .. didn’t need an $18 charge I didn’t ask for ????

    This hidden gem was a wonderful place for a catch-up. The setting was relaxed with tables not crowded together. Staff were helpful and fairly attentive but not intrusive. The food wasn’t complex but the ingredients seemed of very good quality, I.e. veal was extremely tender, mussels were plump and sweet. Would definitely return.
