Great service. Delicious meal with our char grilled octopus, vegetarian pasta, sirloin steak cooked perfectly and a pork loin so tender all served the Italian way. Our bottle of red was expensive but so so worth it.

We had a wonderful night at One Ford Street with some fabulous wine and food. I loved the burrata with eggplant, capers and tomatoes; the proscuitto with figs; and the witlof salad. It was our first visit and we'll definitely head back!

It's always a pleasure to return to one ford. The menu keeps changing based on the season and it's a great place to have Italian regional specialties you won't don't in other Italian restaurants.

About One Ford Street

At One Ford Street restaurant we offer our modern Italian a la carte menu with focus on southern italy regions, like Sardegna, Campania, Puglia and Sicilia.

They delivers quality dishes in a casual environment, focuses on honest, seasonal and produce-driven food, with a strong focus on handmade pasta, paired with the exceptionally curated wine list, One Ford Street is exactly what Fabio dreamed of: true Italian food, with just enough flare to fit perfectly into Sydney Balmain. In true Italian style, dishes are designed to share.We take the best ingredients, organic where possible, and present them simply and elegantly, with a respect for sustainability. Our small goods are selected from Australia and Italy, combined with fruit, vegetables from our local farms.

The sharing menu includes dishes that aren’t necessarily on the regular menu which adds an element of surprise to your dining experience. With this Italian foodie journey you get what you get. It’s how things are done at nonna’s house. Fabio wanted to recreate the culinary ethos of his country: flavoursome, homemade food to be shared amongst friends and family. The restaurant’s layout demonstrates this. Fresh look dining room with open kitchen and open garden area , there’s enough room inside and outside for any kind of gathering. There are cosy corners for a romantic evening, bar stools for friends wanting to catch up whilst watching the theatre of our kitchen, and large tables for a big family reunion.
