City slicker

The Weekend Australian - Travel - - Front Page -

Hap­pily, it lives up to ex­pec­ta­tions, the goey cen­tre spilling on to the plate once the pip­ing-hot pud is pierced, and our evening ends on a high note.

Be­fore we’ve even set­tled the bill, we make plans to re­turn to try the tiny Pen­dolino cafe at the front, which lists vin­cis­grassi — truf­fled chicken liver and Por­to­bello mush­room lasagne — on its com­pact menu. Or if time is of the essence, we may even prop our­selves up at the bar for a swift aper­i­tivo af­ter work.

By of­fer­ing con­sis­tently ex­cel­lent re­gional Ital­ian cui­sine, smart ser­vice and a char­ac­ter­ful at­mos­phere — and serv­ing, at the same time, as a wel­come bolt­hole for weary city work­ers who might just want a quick drink for the road — this so­phis­ti­cated ad­di­tion to the Syd­ney CBD has proved it means busi­ness. All Ta­bles vis­its are unan­nounced and meals paid for.
