Ormeggio Wine List
Ormeggio is an Italian fine dining restaurant situated at The Spit, overlooking Middle Harbour on Sydney’s North Shore. Set on the D'Albora Marina, this restaurant aspires to bring the Italian Riviera to Sydney. Large open bi-fold windows allow for a wonderful view of the water and the glittering multimillion-dollar mansions across it, interrupted only by sleek yachts and powerboats bobbing on the tide. If you’re looking to vacation via a long lunch and indulge in a bit of La Dolce Vita, then Ormeggio is the place to do it.
Offering both degustation and à la carte, this two hat restaurant does some of Sydney’s best modern Italian; snacks will surprise and delight and the pasta & risotto are so good that you’ll be tempted to order another round before the plates are cleared. Service is warm but remains polished and professional. The wine service is particularly impressive. All steps are carried out table-side and it is an enjoyable piece of theatre. Each prop is carefully considered, right down to the bespoke wooden block used for cork presentation.
