Meet the Chef

In his first restaurant, Popolo, Flavio Carnevale explored the Southern Italian food of his Basilicata childhood. Now, MARTA is a celebration of the energy, flavours and Lazio wines of his adopted city Rome. In Flavio’s view, hospitality relates to a restaurant’s entire package so he spent 10 years in Rome by day cooking in the kitchen then by night on the floor hosting and serving fully immersed in the food, wine and personalities - this is still his modus operandi at MARTA

    Positive experience. Food was good and ambience was also good. Only issue was the service that was so and so. Had to remind waiters about missing wine and water all the time. Not overall happy and will go back

    Always love coming to Marta, was favorite Italian restaurant. But this time it was very disappointing with food: cheesy pasta and meat balls were really good, but veal from main did not taste good at all with this tasteless gravy on top; ravioli were wooden, undercooked, plus the ricotta inside was very powdery taste (mine home ricotta taste the same if it is unfrozen). Wine is always good. Also, just want to say thanks to management of Marta for removing this ridiculous pre deposit from the credit card of $100. Once went there with another couple and there was no option to split the bill at the end bc they already took $200 from my card. So now no deposits, sounds amazing ????????

    One of the best, if not the best, Italian restaurant in Sydney. You can find some typical authentic Italian dishes other than the usual fries calamari, which you can't find anywhere else. Highly recommended!

    The tastes were great, the pasta was fresh and the service from Diego was excellent. We had the Squid in a beautiful tomato base, Deep Fried gnocchi and some Focaccia which was beautiful and fluffy with extra virgin olive oil to start. We then progressed to the caccio e pepe, a glorious taste sensation and the Amatriciana which was balanced perfectly from the tomato to the chilli to the bacon. we finished of with a Mille Fiore which had a layer of limoncello custard and a layer of strawberry custard. Yummy. (PS excuse my spelling and Italian readers)

    Good pasta. Antipasto was excellent. Great wine selection. Outdoor seating available but we sat indoors. Martini kicked things off which is always good

    We have eaten in this restaurant before and enjoyed the food. However tonight the opposite was true. The pasta dishes were ok but very small portions for an Australian restaurant, even by fine dining standards. A number of us had the tuna which was very disappointing indeed. The fish was completely overcooked. So dry and tasteless. Almost worse however than the sin of dramatically overcooking this usually delicious fish, was the sin of leaving a large number of scales on the skin which then made eating the dish very unpleasant to eat indeed. Totally unacceptable in any restaurant, especially one with a good reputation. Sadly we now feel we’ve lost a local and won’t be back.

    The restaurant was great, but the food was average. Also, they put fish stock in a seafood risotto after my wife had said she was vegetarian. It was a bit of a let down. The service and wine are great though

    Always great food and excellent service. Happy to return to Marta every time. Cant pass the polpette and negroni/wine selections. Easy for a walk in meal with bar and window seating

    Marta is always of a consistent quality and the food and service is always good. We all enjoyed our meal though felt that there could be more 'sharing' options. Good meal however as always.

    Was disappointed with the level of service. Food took a long time to arrive and it took us a long time to flag a waiter to all for the dessert menu and then to order dessert.

    Delicious food, friendly attentive service & pleasant set up - all works to Marta’s credit. It’s not our first visit but this time with our son & daughter-in-law visiting from London & they thought very highly of the place. We’ll be back soon, definitely!

    Service is always top: discrete but efficient. They know when to come over, they are so courteous, yet funny and relaxed. Also love that they don't chuck you out after 90mns on Sat night like a lot of places in Sydney But I think your survey is floored .. you are forcing and amount per person which is inaccurate as I had to randomly put sthg to be able to submit. I may have made the booking but I never saw the bill. Please amend your questionnaire to allow people to answer accurately.

MARTA is an osteria inspired by the flavours and streets of Rome. The ideal spot from date nights to leisurely Sunday family gatherings. Flavio Carnevale - creator of Sydney's much loved Popolo - has created a true neighbourhood gem serving up traditional Roman flavours in abundance - from classic cacio e pepe (pasta served with black pepper and pecorino) to scottadito (tomahawk with spicy chicory).

Best dish: cacio e pepe.
