We loved the overall vibe of the place, casual and really cosy. The pasta was absolutely delicious!
Absolutely brilliant, one of the best places I’ve ever eaten at
Delicious pasta, well made and cooked to perfection. There are kids sizes available for $10 which is not on their menu so you have to ask for it, personally, its only a little smaller than my adult sized main!
Exceptional food, very authentic flavours. Wine selections are perfectly appointed.
Seating is orientated to quick dining (stools and very small tables) to keep people moving through.
We regularly go to La Favola for an early dinner with our 3-year-old son and they are always so accommodating! It's now a favourite as our son will sit still for more than 5 minutes to finish his dinner (big food endorsement) and we can manage to enjoy quality Italian dining with a glass of good wine! Ask for the specials as they are actually 'special' and should definitely been tried. Our son now says 'Ciao' and asks for casarecce instead of spaghetti!
The food was great however the service not so much- got asked to order three times within 5 minutes of sitting down.
Food was excellent. Service was very good. Good atmosphere. Maybe a little loud/cramped, but I'm not complaining. Would highly recommend.
Really enjoyed the whole experience, service was very efficient. The sea food pasta and the pasta of the day which was spinach and ricotta raviolli were amazing.
The food was delicious, the service was quick and the price was reasonable. I enjoyed the ambience.
Should be more like it
Food was tasty but specials were double the price of menu items.. $35 for a small plate of pasta is sneaky.. won’t go again.
I booked a table at 7pm and they didn't have one free for us for 25min. We were waiting outside in the cold.
The food is not authentic. My partner being Italian, he was not impressed. Not much flavour in the sauce.
The entree was nice, we had an antipasto.
Definitely not worth how much we pay for the pasta. Not going back.
Also the chairs are really not comfortable. They just use stools, not very suitable for older people.
Great place to dine! Great food and atmosphere. However, we had to wait half an hour for a table inside despite making a reservation in advance.
Delicious food, loved the restaurant, I’ve already recommended it and I’m booked in to go again!
Amazing food and service, great dessert as well and nice spot
The food was great and came out very quickly. When I’d dined in doors I really enjoyed the experience, however, this time despite booking ahead we were put out on the street which was very noisy.
We arrived on time but the table before us was 15 minutes late leaving, we would not have minded going elsewhere for a drink to wait but we were told it would only be a few minutes. The staff only prompted them with the bill 10 minutes after we arrived.
An excellent experience food and service were top class..definitely going back..well done
Food was lovely and so was the service. Good value too. Will definitely return.
We booked this restaurant on Tuesday for after a show on Saturday. I received a text message and a phone both to confirm that booking.
When we arrived there was a line up and one spare table. They told us to wait 10minutes. As we waited they let someone in from the line who confirmed they didn’t have a booking. The service was rude and unfriendly. They didn’t update us, just kept us waiting in a line of walk ins. So we left.
Amazing food however service was almost too quick. Would have been nicer to stay longer and enjoy the restaurant.
Food was less than ordinary and quite priced for some pasta and NO vegan options
Everything from the warm welcome, the knowledge friendly service and of course the incredible quality of the food and wine selection all top marks. The chef came out, had a chat to me and even made me a special seafood pasta which was a knock out! Thank you for a really enjoyable night out. Oh and the limoncello was a perfect ending.
Love the service, the drinks specials and the truffle butter! We’ll definitely keep coming back.
This place is soon becoming my go to for Italian so delicious and fresh!
I felt we should’ve been spaced further apart , and the food was ok , I got the special and it wasn’t very tasty at all.
Food was spectacular however the service was poor.
Delicious carbonara. The olives also delicious, but the focaccia was a little bit dry.
And the Norma pasta was slightly boring. The donuts also not stand out.
But all still yummy.
Fantastic restaurant and really delicious food. Highly recommend
Amazing could not recommend more -
Very noise.. tables and chair are super unconfortable. Food is great but overpriced! A mock tail and fish soup was 47 AUD!!! Ask for prices on specials! Otherwise you may end up paying too much! Staff is coming to bother every 5 minutes to ask if you want to order more. And the noise oh my god, is like you are next to the road there is no wall and the traffic in Newtown is heavy! I guess delivery will be ok!
Gnocchi was the best i have had. Service was great too
It was lovely the food was extremely tasty and the service was impeccable
Authentic pasta and lovely atmosphere. Would definitely recommend La Favola!
Food was incredible. I had the 4 cheese sauce with the gnocchi and I have been dreaming about it ever since. The waiter we had was really lovely and helpful. The only thing I’d say is that it is a little cramped and noisy but I’ll definitely be going back!
Beautiful fresh pasta and authentic Italian food. Lovely drinks and excellent service. Special was a little pricy but would still return.
Great authentic Italian good with great staff. Highly recommend
Went here on a first date kind of nervous but it was great, wasn’t too fancy or too simple, food was really good, everyone was super nice
Great food and service.
Would’ve been more comfortable if the doors were closed as it was a chilly night and the doors were wide open
Real, fresh, authentic Italian food! Would be better if the tables and chairs were bigger and more comfortable but still OK. Will definitely return!
Best pasta in Sydney
And head chef was so accommodating and friendly
