Sydney is ranked 10th in the world's quality of life index, reflecting the varied attractions of this dazzling, cultural and sun-soaked tourist destination. The Harbour City is a paradise for visitors who love the outdoor lifestyle, great entertainment and beautiful urban spaces, and the city's beaches are yet another draw for those who come to experience a slice of the good life. Foodies will also be delighted to discover incredible pasta restaurants in Sydney, with a chance to taste some of the finest exports from Italy with an Australian twist.
Pasta is hugely popular among Australians and the eight million tourists who visit the city each year. After a day of admiring the Opera House, Darling Harbour, the Harbour Bridge and Bondi Beach, what could be more enticing than a large bowl of fresh, steaming pasta with a flavoursome, decadent sauce and a glass of chilled white wine? You'll find Sydney's pasta restaurants all over the CBD, around the beach fronts and in the main dining and retail areas, including Roseberry, Chippendale, Bondi, The Grounds of Alexandria, Walsh Bay and Circular Quay.
There are various award-winning Italian restaurants in Sydney selling pasta, pizza and other Italian classics. Quandoo diners have given great reviews for Cibo e Vino on Rouse Hill, which is known for being one of the best eateries in Castle Hill. The menu is an expertly crafted blend of authentic dishes with a contemporary twist and the restaurant's owners only source the finest local ingredients from trusted suppliers. Pizza e Pasta in Gladesville is another hot favourite with savvy diners. The Italian chefs here serve up a mouth-watering range of antipasta, pizza, pasta and other Italian classics to an enthusiastic crowd of locals and visitors alike. But be prepared, there can be serious queues for Sydney's pasta restaurants in the evenings and at weekends, so don't risk being disappointed. Simply book your table in advance with Quandoo and look forward to a hassle-free meal!
Fresh, perfectly cooked pasta tastes so delicious on its own that you can enjoy it simply served with a drizzle of oil and a sprinkle of parmesan. The many different varieties are extremely versatile and work as well with light, fresh tomato sauces as they do with rich, cream and cheese based sauces. Look out for classic staple dishes such as spaghetti aglio, olio e peperoncino or spaghetti al pomodoro, the dish most often used to evaluate the skills of an Italian chef. Carbonara, made with egg yolk, pancetta and pecorino is another favourite - but will always be served without cream in an authentic restaurant. Regardless of your favourite dish, you're bound to be delighted with the food, service and atmosphere at Sydney's superb pasta restaurants!
