It's as discreet and romantic as any ristorante on a backstreet in Melbourne or Rome. Chef and owner Nino Zoccali invokes the spirit of the mother country here in an elegant heritage arcade off Pitt Street Mall. With its raw brick, elegant timber and courteous staff who deftly walk the line between chilly formality and too much amore, this is one of the CBD's handful of genuine Italian offerings among the many pretenders. Most of our dishes are flawless: a spaghetti chitarra with barramundi and wild-caught prawns; a slow-roasted leg of duck with Sicilian red wine-braised cauliflower, broad beans and black olives. Less absorbing is a dull fillet of South Coast leatherjacket Viareggio-style with salt cod. It's then back to form with a superb meringata and wild strawberries. Pendolino's wine list is excellent - if you like Italian wine - with plenty of smaller northern and southern producers included, and some rarities.
