Service was great during s busy evening

Highly recommend Besser - had a delicious meal. We sat at one of window seats so we could people watch the beautiful people of Surry hills. I had the meatballs as a main which was delicious! Besser has a great atmosphere - cool interiors! The only disappointment was the aperol spritz which was slightly on the weak side. C'mon guys u can do better I'm sure!

Love it! Besser is always amazing! We went with good friends and had a wonderful time! And don't ignore the wine on tap: the Montepulciano was incredible!

Good spot for fresh Italian dining

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

Best gnocchi we've ever had in Sydney! The hourly risotto (don't be late) also did not disappoint - highly rated

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.

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
