Eat Love Pizza
Darling Harbour has loads of restaurants between the IMAX theater and the aquarium but the most appealing spot is probably Eat Love Pizza, a casual Italian restaurant with excellent brick-oven pizzas with super-fresh ingredients. The main menu also features pastas, steaks, fish and veal. The children’s menu includes simple pizzas and pastas as well as calamari and chips. It is open for lunch and dinner but reservations are recommended.
Right on Manly Wharf where the ferries arrive from Sydney, Hugo’s is a fabulous waterside spot for a casual lunch or dinner. Its owners are a pair of Aussie celebrity chefs, Pete Evans and Massimo Mele, and their pizzas are considered among the best in town. Other popular items on the menu are seafood such as oysters served with sherry vinegar, fried calamari, seared scallops with tomato and basil and delicious pastas such as homemade gnocchi with roasted zucchini, garlic and basil pesto and spinach pappardelle with scampi, sea urchin, broccolini and garlic and lemon.
Tip: There are no reservations accepted for dinners on the weekends so if you want to be sure not to have to wait for a table, book for lunch Monday to Sunday or dinner Monday to Thursday.
The more casual little sister to Aqua Dining, Ripples at Milson Point sits just below the Olympic pool under the Harbour Bridge with great views of the harbor, its boats and the Opera House. Under a canvas awning, it serves such classic Sydney fare as oysters, fish and chips and pan-seared barramundi. It is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week.
Note: There is a bring-your-own wine policy. Ripples also has outposts at Sydney Wharf, Whale Beach and Chowder Bay.
