    My partner and I visited Sicilian's last night for our 5th anniversary,and were thoroughly disappointed on every level.

    My partner and I had frequented the restaurant regularly some years back for various events (multiple friends birthdays, dinner out with friends, our parents visiting etc.. we really did like the place and found it to be quite intoxicating back in the day. However, in our humble opinion the restaurant has certainly fallen from grace in recent years, and is a pitiful shadow of its former self.

    I ordered the pork ribs (about $43) and my partner ordered the roast lamb. (about $39) I must confess that my serving was immense - the ribs were certainly mind boggling in size. In addition, my partners roast lamb was hung vertically on a spit, so the appearance was quite enticing. However, that's where my praise ends.

    The food was disappointingly bland, even for Italian. My ribs were dry and the sauce tasted like it had been sitting around for a week in the sun. My chips (under the ribs) were only half cooked - and i didn't eat more than about 3 or 4 of my ribs in total. My partners dish was slightly better - the roast tasted o-k. Just like something you might cook on a Sunday night for the family. ie the food was food and just that. It didnt taste anything other then what you would have at home, on a regular basis, and was certainly nothing special; and absolutely not worth the $40 odd dollars we paid for it.

    The final nail in the coffin came when we were winding up the night. I asked for a glass of water with my desert, only to be served with an EXTREMELY scratched, beaten up glass. Please do not take me to be petty here in anyway. The glass looks like it has been left in the back of a Ute, and driven to Perth and back - twice!

    This certainly wouldn't have happened back in Sicilian's hey-day, and I am very sorry to say that my partner and I will never, ever, be going back again.

    Came here with a friend before a saturday night on the town - we didnt have a reservation and were a bit worried when we saw how busy it was. However, we were greeted by a friendly waitress who did her best to find us a nice table away from too many large groups so we could talk in peace. our waiter was particularly good at accommodating my gluten intolerant friend, with all pizza's and pastas available in gluten free. he also took the time and effort to point out which entrees and other mains she could eat before leaving her to her decision, and came back as soon as he saw her close the menu. The food was of a good standard, especially my lamb shanks. Very pleased with the effort put in to our meal on a busy night

    This review is for weekday lunch. We (2 people) sat inside and ordered 2 pizzas with complementary wine. The food was out in 10 min and the staff was very courteous, and the food was very good. They get extra points because when I asked to have onions held from one pizza, they couldn't because it was already mixed in with the ingredients, but the waitress went back to confirm. I ordered it anyway. The lady who brought out the pizza told me that the chef did his best to pull out the onions, which made me feel bad. They had no problems pulling the onions out of the other pizza. I would definitely go back. (The pizza with the onion came out very nice. The tiny chopped pieces of onion definitely enhanced the flavour, and I would get it again. I just won't ask to have it held next time and cause so much fuss.)

      Sorry, meant to say they have no problem HOLDING onions from other pizzas, not 'pulling onions out of'.

    Each time I've visited this restaurant I've come with one other diner, and service could possibly be improved. It can be particularly awkward when meals are brought out at separate times, considerable lengths apart - however this has only happened to me once and our waiter apologised. Their pizza and pasta menu caters for most tastes and the serving sizes are certainly what you pay for. With the amount of other restaurants on Church Street I would certainly prefer to look around than settle here first.

    Hate to be negative but I really didn't enjoy this place. Food isn't authentic. Service is slow and decor is dated. There are plenty of other restaurants in Parramatta that serve better food in a better fashion.

    Not a good experience. Firstly we were a table of 10. They sat half of our group at the front of the restaurant and the other half at the back - it wasn't until one group rang the other to find out where they were did we find out what had happened - bare in mind we had a reservation. Entrees took over an hour, and only 1/2 of them came. Next thing you know the mains arrive and the 1/2 that didn't get the entree where wondering what happened, we did ask and they looked puzzeled. I had ordered a ceasar salad with avocado and no chicken - i get it with chicken - and then even after complaining about it, they charge me for the chicken and refuse to take the chicken part off the final bill! We chop through the mains, get interupted over 6 times with orders for other tables. Then out of the blue the missing entree arrive - as we are finishing the mains! Drinks took up to 45 minutes to get on average. Desserts arrived unevenly over a 20 minute period. One simple request was for ice cream and chocolate topping - they forgot and by the time his arrived, we had finished dessert. 2 desserts arived for the same dish - one steaming hot the other stone cold.... are you getting the picture here? One fellow orders a short black coffee - it arrives stone cold with a dirty spoon that was licked!!! We mention it to the waitress - no reaction. We were starting to feel like we were complainers but seriously none of us had ever experienced anything like this - it was dismal and it won't be repeated. You ask, did we complain at the time of the bill? Sure did - they wouldn't have a bar of it - we got a free pizza and a dessert off the bill - they then give us free parking tickets like it was a special treat - turnes out everyone who eats there gets it. We won't be back and we will tell people not to bother. The food wasn't so fabulous to compensate for the service. Very disappointed :((((
