Great service, delicious meals - unsurprisingly given that it's a casual interpretation of A Tavola.

Service was warm and friendly. We ordered off the wait staff recommendation and we're not disappointed... the risotto was delicious. Only let down of the night was the dressert the chocolate with fig and orange ice cream was super super rich.3-4 small spoons was enough.

Wonderful lunch with many entrees to share (highly recommended the salmon tartare) and for the mains we took two pastas (classic gnocchi and duck tagliatelle) but the best was the octopus.

Fantastic Pasta, excellent service and good wine. Special entree was Bullhorn peppers with stuffed black rice was also amazing. Only downside is a little on the pricier side $100 for 2 for 1 entree, 2 mains and 2 wines.

About Besser

Mangia bene, ridi spesso, ama molto Mangia bene, ridi spesso, ama molto: eat well, laugh often, love much. That’s the motto of the Italo-Australian team behind Italian eatery, Besser on Crown Street. Eugenio Maiale, Ennio Di Marcos, Sandro di Marino and Luke Randall have gone back to their roots. Besser is, as they describe it ‘organised chaos’ - just like it was at their Italian family gatherings growing up, where everything revolved around food. The boys have created a place that locals want to come back to on a weekly basis. Chef Sandro di Marino offers dishes from five sections from the menu. There’s fresh bread, olives and meatballs; a selection of raw dishes; traditional pastas; and mains of fish or chicken. A real treat on the menu is the ‘6pm risotto’, which you can only order at the designated time. The recipe changes daily, with variations including risotto all Milanese with bone marrow or crab with zucchini. It’s tasty Italian food, in a relaxed, casual setting that makes you feel well at home. The boys promise you an Italiano informale experience. Cheers to that. Best dish: gnocchi with oxtail and red wine ragu
