Anyone that knows anything about Italian restaurants in Leichardt and Haberfield will at some time mention La Disfida. Why? Because this place has good...everything...that's why. La Disfida is not fine dining and when you go and eat there you know it wasn't meant to be. This is Italian food that gives you such a good feeling. The flavours are authentic,... More

the service was attentive but we hardly noticed, as we were enjoying ourselves so much. the ambience is one of family groups and lots of fiends all chattering, eating and realy enjoying the evening. The food is all fantastic, we shared dish after dish of fabulous smaller starters. The pizzas are the highlight, thin crust and so delicious.

Salad was excellent. I had theDiavola every fifth bite had anchovie. Friend ordered the Bufala cheesey delight. And the Rustica which was meaty and... More

We tried to book a table from phone, but we were said it was not possible, need to go there and leave the name on the list. OK, uncomfortable, but typical of Italian pizzeria. We went there and the line was big, left the name for the list and advised of a 20-25 min wait. OK, that is typical of... More

We tried this restaurant based upon all of the good reviews, and are so glad that we did. We went with Italian friends from out of town. They loved it and so did we. The zucchini flowers were fantastic. The pizza's were amazing too - the base was so thin and light. Veal involtini special was really good too. The... More

La Disfida had been one of the best restaurants in Haberfield for a while now. A mix of pizzeria-trattoria-tapas with a genuine Italian flavour, with a fantastic wine list to complement the great food served here. It can get very noisy upstairs, so try to get a table outside or in the balcony. They do not take bookings. It's worth... More

I had dinner at La Disfida last Sunday night. It was our first visit in about a year. Nothing has changed. We had the meat plate [Salami Misti] which is great value and a generous serving for 2, followed by a pasta special of mixed seafoods which was very nice. The wine list includes a good selection of Italian wines... More
