What is it? A Potts Point restaurant boasting a full house rain, hail or shine, excellent service and a super-interesting wine list. What's good? All of it, but specifically risotto all’Ametriciana sees pearly, round little grains of rice cooked al dente with a chilli, fresh marjoram, fine shavings of Parmesan and thin stubs of pancetta, spread out in a thin layer over a shallow dish.
Dress up or down? Up. It's a Euro-leaning crown with designer duds and great hair.
Italian food is the unofficial second cuisine of Sydney (the first being Thai). Many of the city's best fine dining and casual eateries have heavily Italian influenced menus, and while good pizzerias and dirt-cheap red sauces places are harder to find than the poshest stuff, there are still spades of options to choose from. We've picked our favourites from every style, so no matter what mood you're in, there's something here for you.
