Rozelle and Balmain have their fair share of Italian restaurants, but this one's a cut above. Itâ€™s the fresh pasta like the ravioli that keeps us going back, not to mention the pork belly.
Like an Armani suit, Il Piave Restaurant is all about understated class. The clean, tailored lines of the interior dining room, with its bright white walls and cushioned leather seats, allude to the stylish sophistication youâ€™ll find within this beautiful Rozelle restaurant. Framed awards hanging on the wall near the entrance serve as a reminder that this restaurant has maintained a coveted chefâ€™s hat in the Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide since 2003.
Il Piave leans towards fine dining and exceptional service turns each meal here into a special occasion. Fresh, quality ingredients, simply prepared, define Il Piaveâ€™s seasonal menu of generous, north Italian style dishes. Among the offerings might be stuffed and lightly fried zucchini flowers, crispy yet tender twice cooked duck leg, and for dessert, a beautifully smooth vanilla panna cotta.
