Fratelli Paradiso

There's good reason to wait for a table at this Potts Point institution, though it's wise to choose your night carefully or else arrive early. Luckily, it's also open for breakfast and lunch if lines aren't really your thing (the doughnuts alone are reason to visit). Here, waiters swerve around tables like cars on the autostrada, taking orders from the blackboard menu and superb natural-leaning Italian wine list. The calamari, which has something of a signature-dish status, arrives lightly floured and flash-fried, typifying Fratelli's mantra of simple Italian fare without the need for bells and whistles. Ticking the box for gutsy flavours is the tagliolini with ribbons of guanciale that's best paired with, say, a glass of something interesting plucked from the hills of Tuscany, while the tiramisù lives up to its origins as a pick-me-up with Marsala-spiked mascarpone and coffee-soaked biscuit that'll have you buzzing into the night.
