Italian
We are a relaxed, family-welcoming Italian restaurant on Sydney's beautiful coastal hub. We are Coogee's oldest Italian restaurant, owned and operated by the Lombardo family for more than 20 years. Modern, family Italian is one of the simplest, most enjoyable cuisines the world over, and La Spiaggia is loyal to this ethos. With many of Italy's most famous exports on our menu , we customise our good food with a woodfire oven, and by hand-making most of our pastas. We also source the best possible ingredient for all dishes, whether that be local Australian or imported Italian, from fresh seafood daily to the best Italian cheeses. We are open seven nights a week for dinner from 5.30pm.

Was such a great experience! The gnocchi was to die for. Loved our fabulous waiter and the attention given. We will be coming back soon!

Sadly the food did not meet our expectations. The vegetable lasagna was highly recommended by the waiter but was a mess of white sauce and pureed vegetables (We think there were vegetables in there). Very disappointed as this was a birthday celebration.

It was our first time in this restaurant. I booked a table for my wife’s birthday, she loves Italian cuisine.

I don’t regret my choice. Food was amazing and service amazing.

We will definitely come back.

Grazie !

As Italian food aficionados, we were after quality: La Spiaggia was recommended by a long term Coogee local and it did not disappoint. The bruschetta (a simple dish so often stuffed up) was great: the bread was crisp, the tomatoes fresh and sweet, the tomato/onion mix perfect. We shared a half duck with sides of chips and salad and it was plenty all good with the minor exception of the duck which was well cooked but not well browned on the outside. Wines were good also and everything well priced. All in a very enjoyable night out.

Being an Italian pizza lover I have very much appreciated the quality of this pizza that is crispy as I like.
A little bit smaller then we are used to in Italy, but one of the best pizza I have had in Sydney so far.
Highly recommended

Always a lively place to eat. Food and wine list always pleases. (Best oysters I've had!) As a coeliac, pleasing to be find gluten free options on the menu.

even though we asked for a break between entree and main - pasta came out as soon as dishes were taken away. food had been precooked and was just waiting for you to finish. Server tried to serve new dishes on old plates not taken away. We sent them back.

Food was really disappointing. Pizze were not cooked enough and pasta had no taste despite fresh products. A very average experience and definitely not the right value for money.

I booked La Spaggia not knowing anything about the restaurants in Coogee. It was a celebration for my birthday whilst visiting sydney. My friends ended up appearing at all different times, our group was erratic and ended up ordering randomly at different times.
We were a tricky group and the wait staff were so understanding and considerate. Nothing was a problem, they were really friendly and the food was excellent. I would happily return if I didn't live so far away.

The food was beautiful and came out very promptly. Only downside was that our waiter was horribly rude and it really put a dampener on our evening. I wish I could give this place a better rating.

We have been regulars at LS for a few years, this time was disappointing. The Zucchini Flowers we’re heavily battered, nothing like the light tempura type coating they should have. The Arrancini were average and the fillet steak was very dry, definitely not the medium rare I ordered.

More importantly it’s probably time for a menu update, I may be wrong but it feels like it hasn’t had a significant change in some time. We will be back, if only for the pizza, which is always good.
