Located on the waters edge of Darling Harbour, next to the main entrance of Harbourside. It is a short walk from the Convention and Exhibition Centre.

With a simple yet elegant interior and an expansive set of glass doors opening up onto Darling Harbour’s bustling waterfront, this stylish eatery knows how to take advantage of what Sydney has to offer. The views from both inside and al fresco seating areas make this dining experience truly spectacular. Whether you are sipping on a glass of vino rosso looking at the colourful city skyline or tucking into an Italian breakfast roll mid-morning, you will be equally pleased with the vivacity Sydney’s waterfront views can provide.

Centred on a blend of Italian and modern Australian cuisine, Passello is known for its gourmet pizzas and specialty homemade pastas like its penne saltimbocca and spaghetti gamberi. A diverse selection of other Italian inspired dishes for vegetarians, meat-lovers and everyone in between are also available. Dine on the likes of a classic osso bucco or a chef speciality of ocean trout fillet served with steamed green beans and kipfler potatoes with a lemon butter sauce. Be sure to save room for dolci, whether that be the flourless chocolate and hazelnut cake or the tiramisu, and a sneaky glass of port to conclude your meal.

Passello can also cater for large parties and intimate dinner dates. Please enquire about functions by contacting the restaurant directly.

Passello Restaurant - User Reviews

David Morris:

I was very disappointed with the whole experience. First, the best. The food was excellent. The waiter was friendly and corrected problems when they were pointed out. Though I had reserved online 3 weeks early and it was confirmed back, when we showed up they had no record. Luckily we were seated anyway. It was Valentine's Day and chocolate roses were at most of the tables. We had to ask for ours. I was going to use a best restraunts gift card, but the cashier tried to put the whole total on the card rather than subtract the value of the card before charging me. It took a few days and a helpful person from best restraunts to make sure my card was indeed  02/03/2014

My girlfriend and I often come to Passello when when we are in Darling Harbour and it always becomes more difficult to choose what we would like to eat, because everything is so good. Last time I came here, I reluctantly shared a pizza with my girlfriend. We had to order another one because it was so good. We will be back here again :)review  15/12/2011

I came to Passello for dinner on a Wednesday evening last week and was very happy with everything. A group of four people shared a pizza and then we each had our own plate. The pizza was superb and I had the gnocchi as my main. The gnocchi was hands down the best I have ever had. It was obviously freshly made and the cheese sauce complemented the texture of the potato so  02/12/2011
