    Mine and my friends Ragout pasta was very dry and ordinary and no one asked us how our meals were. The rest of the meals were great and the whole place is amazing but food let it down for us.

    It was an ok experience, I wouldn’t rush back. The antipasto for $52 needed more than 3 types of bread, some cheese, a little prosciutto, a touch of mortadella, few olives, the Bald Rock in Balmain kill it with their antipasto board and it’s way cheaper and much better quality. Glad I went but won’t be rushing back.

    Always a good spot - thought it took a little longer than necessary to be seated. Food was good, but the menu seemed a little limited. Good selection of wines, but thought the bottles of wine a little expensive so stayed with wine by the glass.

    The food was superb, but I requested an outside table when I booked, and I was only told when I got there that they were not opening the outdoor dining area on that night (Tue night) because they were not that busy. I would have appreciated an earlier notification about this, either immediately after I have booked, or when they sent me a booking confirmation request the day before. Also waiter knew we were sharing the food and brought us sharing plates, but the pizza came uncut onto the table and needed us to request for it to be cut into slices. Music was a little too loud if you want to have a good conversation but nice atmosphere for a group catch up.

    Bel & BrioResponded on 20 June 2022Hello Helena, thank you for taking the time to write a review of your experience at Bel & Brio. We're sorry to hear that you were not notified that our outdoor dining area would not be open on the night you visited. This notification should have been given to you when you made your reservation either through our website or by one of our reservationists. We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused and we hope that you will give us another chance to serve you in the future.

    Our casual dining experience was embarrassing. The waitress took our order without writing anything down and forgot about 50% of the order. Our bruschetta and cabbage salad were only brought when we asked again for it, one pizza didn’t have pistacchio on it, and another one did not have the extra hot salami we ordered. Pizza arrived almost cold and I have my doubts that the pistacchio is really from Bronte. On top of that, most waiters/waitresses seemed pretty careless about the service and we had to pay every cent of what we ordered despite delays, errors and poor quality. Definitely won’t be back.

    Bel & BrioResponded on 13 June 2022Dear Stefano, Thank you for choosing to dine with us at Bel & Brio. I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations. Your feedback has been shared with our management team and will help us to improve our service in the future. We hope that you will give us another chance to redeem ourselves and thank you for bringing these issues to our attention.

    The service was poor as the waitress served the dish across the table and waiter who mainly looked after us was very good only he is too busy with others and cannot keep an eye on ours. Food - pasta was very poor as it was not served hot and the pasta got stuck together pretty badly. Pizza and steak was good, other was very average as it was a very busy night. The noise was very loud and very hard to hear ourselves. Overall it’s not a bad place but considering it’s Barangaroo it should have the food at very least standard and the service also brought down the image for the restaurant.

    Bel & BrioResponded on 14 June 2022Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at Bel & Brio. I'm sorry to hear that our service fell short of your expectations. Our waitstaff is typically very attentive, and I would like to apologise for the inconvenience you experienced. Our food is usually served hot, and I'm sorry that it was not in your case. The noise level can be difficult to manage on busy nights, but we appreciate your feedback nonetheless. We hope you'll give us another chance in the future.

    The experience was well below average. Im not usually one to write reviews, but the servers forgot bread when we asked 3 times, they added 2 extra meals we told them to remove when we were ordering. And on top at the end of the meal they added a manual service fee of 10%, which when we asked what it was for they said "Im not sure let me go ask" then when they returned they said it was a mistake. How do you accidentally add $60 to a bill?
