I booked a table at 7pm and they didn't have one free for us for 25min. We were waiting outside in the cold.
The food is not authentic. My partner being Italian, he was not impressed. Not much flavour in the sauce.
The entree was nice, we had an antipasto.
Definitely not worth how much we pay for the pasta. Not going back.
Also the chairs are really not comfortable. They just use stools, not very suitable for older people.
Great place to dine! Great food and atmosphere. However, we had to wait half an hour for a table inside despite making a reservation in advance.
Amazing food and service, great dessert as well and nice spot
The food was great and came out very quickly. When I’d dined in doors I really enjoyed the experience, however, this time despite booking ahead we were put out on the street which was very noisy.
We arrived on time but the table before us was 15 minutes late leaving, we would not have minded going elsewhere for a drink to wait but we were told it would only be a few minutes. The staff only prompted them with the bill 10 minutes after we arrived.
An excellent experience food and service were top class..definitely going back..well done
Food was lovely and so was the service. Good value too. Will definitely return.
We booked this restaurant on Tuesday for after a show on Saturday. I received a text message and a phone both to confirm that booking.
When we arrived there was a line up and one spare table. They told us to wait 10minutes. As we waited they let someone in from the line who confirmed they didn’t have a booking. The service was rude and unfriendly. They didn’t update us, just kept us waiting in a line of walk ins. So we left.
Amazing food however service was almost too quick. Would have been nicer to stay longer and enjoy the restaurant.
Food was less than ordinary and quite priced for some pasta and NO vegan options
Everything from the warm welcome, the knowledge friendly service and of course the incredible quality of the food and wine selection all top marks. The chef came out, had a chat to me and even made me a special seafood pasta which was a knock out! Thank you for a really enjoyable night out. Oh and the limoncello was a perfect ending.
Love the service, the drinks specials and the truffle butter! We’ll definitely keep coming back.
This place is soon becoming my go to for Italian so delicious and fresh!
I felt we should’ve been spaced further apart , and the food was ok , I got the special and it wasn’t very tasty at all.
Food was spectacular however the service was poor.
Delicious carbonara. The olives also delicious, but the focaccia was a little bit dry.
And the Norma pasta was slightly boring. The donuts also not stand out.
But all still yummy.
Fantastic restaurant and really delicious food. Highly recommend
Amazing could not recommend more -
Very noise.. tables and chair are super unconfortable. Food is great but overpriced! A mock tail and fish soup was 47 AUD!!! Ask for prices on specials! Otherwise you may end up paying too much! Staff is coming to bother every 5 minutes to ask if you want to order more. And the noise oh my god, is like you are next to the road there is no wall and the traffic in Newtown is heavy! I guess delivery will be ok!
Gnocchi was the best i have had. Service was great too
It was lovely the food was extremely tasty and the service was impeccable
Authentic pasta and lovely atmosphere. Would definitely recommend La Favola!
Food was incredible. I had the 4 cheese sauce with the gnocchi and I have been dreaming about it ever since. The waiter we had was really lovely and helpful. The only thing I’d say is that it is a little cramped and noisy but I’ll definitely be going back!
Beautiful fresh pasta and authentic Italian food. Lovely drinks and excellent service. Special was a little pricy but would still return.
Great authentic Italian good with great staff. Highly recommend
Went here on a first date kind of nervous but it was great, wasn’t too fancy or too simple, food was really good, everyone was super nice
Great food and service.
Would’ve been more comfortable if the doors were closed as it was a chilly night and the doors were wide open
Real, fresh, authentic Italian food! Would be better if the tables and chairs were bigger and more comfortable but still OK. Will definitely return!
Best pasta in Sydney
And head chef was so accommodating and friendly
It was a cold night and we got seated outside without an option. Food was nice but over priced. The waitress was wonderful friendly and helpful
This place was amazing my partner and my self loved it so much!
Will definitely be coming back here!
Favola by far is my fave Italian restaurant!
Service was quick and attentive
Pasta was just a good enough portion ( I wasn’t too overly full) and could cut dessert.
Tiramisu dessert was the best I’ve ever had!
It was noisy as the entrance door was being opened. Food was great!
Amazing as always. I had the pasta special, my friend had one of the menu options, and we both ordered the dessert donuts for the first time. My fave Italian restaurant, never disappoints, so happy to be back!
Me and my friends went for the first time, the service was spectacular and the staff was very clear with giving details of the specials. Food is well reccommended. Everything is so fresh so tasty and delicious. Love it.
We will be back for sure
I love this place. Everyone so friendly and the food is amazing. Fresh ingredients and wine selection is good
Food was so tasty, great portions, and the service was fantastic. We had a great chat with who I think must be the owner(?) in Newtown, who was so passionate about food and about what he does. Loved it. Will be back!
Great food, fast service. Would prefer chairs with backs to them but small problem in overall great service
Really nice food but the service was poor and staff did not respect bookings that night. We were not the only customers with a booking who had to wait more than 15mn for our table which had not been reserved.
Absolute top service, and gorgeous authentic Italian food.
Customer service was warm and hospitable and the food was amazing. You can tell the ingredients used are fresh and the pasta is delicious. Will definitely be returning on a regular basis!
