Walking into the restaurant on the front steps of Darling Harbour, an immediate sense of warmth and family atmosphere washed over me. With a full house of happy customers, we were seated by the enthusiastic staff into the modern decorated restaurant.
Looking around the wide open area, packed with tables, it seemed that ELP targeted a wide range of customers including whole families and business executives, to those going out afterwards or staying in, with pick-ups optional.
With a wide range of gourmet pizzas to choose from and various other pastas, it was hard to choose what was best. The decision was made even harder as we continued to see pizza after pizza being served to the surrounding customers.
Price: Pizzas: $22-$28 Pastas: Large $24, Small $14 Children's: $10 with a Drink and Ice-Cream
Being one to choose something new and a bit on the healthy side, we ordered the "Four Cheese" Pizza and the "Vegetarian" Pizza with a side of Chips and Steak Sauce. Both pizzas were well cooked and looked mouth-watering as it was delivered in roughly 20 minutes, getting in early would definitely be a preferred choice.
With the "Four Cheese" pizza being the more preferable (didn't realise they were already up to 4 cheeses), each pizza was quite enjoyable. With the accompanying condiments of vinegar and oil, it was a nice added touch. One thing that I couldn't pass on was the ELP steak sauce that complimented the side bowl of chips. Feeling full from the size of the pizzas, it was a tough effort, but one I knew I was happy to push through. I highly recommend a little steak sauce on the "Cheese Pizza".

It was sad leaving; however you can continue to enjoy ELP at home with its wide range of gift items that can get you on your way to making your very own gourmet pizzas.
Eat Love Pizza is a great restaurant choice if you enjoy fine dining with an amazing view. Being on Darling Harbour you are not far from further entertainment and being next door to the IMAX makes it great for a pre/post meal choice.
