“An unmissable Italian icon awaits you at Sydney’s oldest Italian restaurant. Literally the best authentic Italian gelato you can find anywhere in Australia! The food menu is brimming with all the classic Italian favorites such as lasagna, pizza, spaghetti and tiramisu. Do not, not go here. The space here is relaxed no fuss casual, the food, coffees and gelato are the absolute stars of this wonderful iconic destination.”

“Moretti Ristorante Pizzeria first opened its doors in 1997, when Ilario Ventolini set about creating an Italian Restaurant specialising in Roman-style pizza and simple but flavourful foods. Since then, Moretti’s has become a favourite with Sydney’s Italian community and lovers of Italian food alike.”

Fish & Chip Shop
$
“This is our favourite takeaway food, courtesy of the owners Jon and Manny. For about $15 you can get the Annandale special: a generous serve of grilled fish - not fried or battered - plus chips and a salad. Don't forget to order a rice pudding for dessert. This is your easy dinner option. Eat outside the restaurant in Johnston St or race home and it'll still be hot. ”

“POSITIONED IN THE HEART OF LEICHHARDT, THE ROYAL HAS BEEN A COMMUNITY ICON & DESTINATION SINCE 1886. Having been at the heart of the Leichhardt hospitality scene for over 125 years, W. Short Hospitality has made sure that the community remain at the core of the pub and who we are. By giving the venue a fresh new look, a fantastic new menu and a wider selection in the bars, the Royal is breathing new life back into the pub scene on Norton Street as well as the hospitality scene in the Inner West as a whole.”
