About The Restaurant Pendolino
Under the skillful guidance of Executive Chef and Owner Nino Zoccali, The Restaurant Pendolino resides on the second level of the stunning Strand Arcade in Sydney's CBD, and boasts a loyal clientele of business, political and fashion elite.
The restaurant specialises in regionally-inspired Italian cuisine featuring some of Australia and Italy’s most prestigious food and wine products, and has a dedicated pasta kitchen where up to 15 different varieties of hand-made pasta are prepared each day.
While also taking great pride in offering a boutique and thoughtfully procured wine list, curated by group sommelier Cristian Casarin, the restaurant is also a celebration of Australia’s best extra virgin olive oils – a selection of which are served to each guest alongside Pendolino's freshly baked breads.
In its first year, The Restaurant Pendolino was named Best New Restaurant in Australia by Restaurant & Catering Australia, and was soon after awarded one Chef’s Hat in the SMH Good Food Guide, which it has held for 11 consecutive years. In 2018, it was named Australia's Best Formal Italian Restaurant at the Restaurant & Catering Australia Awards for Excellence.
