The Norton Street stalwart and true icon of Sydney's Little Italy, Bar Italia, has been a tried-and-true spot for a feast since 1952. Whether you sit within the trattoria's nostalgia-laden dining room or in the courtyard out back, come on your lonesome or with a group of ten, the buzzing spot overflows with low-key, good-time vibes.
There's a boundless menu, $1 corkage and strict rules — 'No skim, no soy, cash only' — accompanying efficient service, generous servings and a bright roll call of housemade gelatos. The optimal way to feast? Take your pick of the pasta menu — our rec is the penne melanzane or spaghetti cozze — with a Bar Italia salad and spinach arancini alongside. Deliziosa!
