Traditional Italian meets contemporary dining at Criniti's, a multi-award winner of 'Australia's Favourite Italian'. Criniti's was originally established in 2003 in Parramatta, within Sydney's west by Criniti Family, were driven by a passion for fine quality food & cultivated success. Their yearning & hard driven aspirations developed dramatically over the years, which resulted in a popular go-to spot amongst the locals. It didn't take long for the news to spread south, east and north of the border. Patrons travelled from all areas of Sydney to see what all "the fuss" was about. After much success & rave reviews, Criniti's decided it was time to spread its wings east of the border.
In August of 2009 it opened their doors in Sydney's east with an immaculate location in the world famous Darling Harbour; cementing its position as the Harbour's favourite Italian. With breath taking views & ample open air terrace seating, this location will please the most discerning of local and international guests.
