LOCATION
In the heart of The Rocks, close to Circular Quay.

PROFILED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
Tucked away underneath a sandstone escarpment on a cobble-stoned street in The Rocks, Caminetto Italian Restaurant is a welcoming eatery that exudes old-world charm teamed with classic home-style fare. Housed in one of this historic district’s original sandstone terraces, Caminetto brings the past and the present together within its burgundy coloured dining room and relaxing alfresco area. The rustic decor and the aroma of cooking coming from the kitchen have led many regulars to comment that dining at Caminetto is about as close as you can get to a trattoria in Italy without jumping on a plane.

The chef at Caminetto, Italo, has been rattling the pans here for over well over a decade years, which is as long as the restaurant has been open. Simple, fresh flavours showcased in traditional Italian dishes have won over many fans. Begin with sizzling garlic prawns or an antipasto platter before making your choice from the pizza, pasta and succulent meat dishes on offer. Chef Italo recommends the pasta platter for two, which comes with a glass of wine or sangria for each diner, or tuck into the beef tenderloin with a brandy-laced peppercorn sauce. The tiramisu at Caminetto is famously good, and is just the thing to finish the evening with. Live music adds to the atmosphere on Thursday through to Sunday nights.
