Hearty, traditional Italian fare
The Italian Bowl serves hearty, traditional Italian fare, all cooked right in front of you in an open kitchen.

When a restaurant has a happy queue of regular customers outside the front door every evening, rivalled only by the queue of takeaway delivery drivers waiting out the back, you know the place is doing something right.

This bustling, unassuming restaurant is a perfect choice for any night of the week, serving pasta, risottos, a range of veal and chicken dishes, salads and sides.

Whether you're seeking comfort food at the end of a long day or getting ready for a night out in Newtown, The Italian Bowl's generous servings will leave you fully satisfied. With most main courses at $20 or less, the menu is incredibly good value, and you simply have to add a side of the amazing cheesy garlic bread.

The Italian Bowl has truly had a winning year in 2018, having been voted Best Cheap Eats in Sydney by readers of the Daily Telegraph, and winning Best Restaurant in the Inner West in the Inner West Local Business Awards.

The restaurant is now so popular that is has two kitchens, one for the restaurant and one to fulfil delivery orders.

The Italian Bowl is on Uber Eats, Menulog and Deliveroo, or you can call the restaurant direct on 02 9516 0857 to place an order to pick up yourself.
