Went here for a business meeting. Service from wait staff was very attentive without being intrusive. Overall food was of a high calibre, however two of us had the calamari entree and it was very rubbery - probably over-cooked (this faux pas stopped me from...More

We’d heard good things about Machiavelli so organised a group of friends for a lunch and we weren’t disappointed. This was one of the best Italian meals I’ve had. Couldn’t fault the food or the service. I’ll be back.

Not sure what's the Relationship with Sciue Sciue & Bar Machiavelli.... Similar yet different. Great pasta, that's what we're there for.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
