Offering the best value meal in Sydney’s East.

WOW…It’s been 3.5 years since we launched into the Sydney dining Scene, with a new and innovative concept: $20 for unlimited pizza and pasta; every day. Offering undoubtedly the best value meal in Sydney’s East.  Our aim was to do the unthinkable in Sydney  - match quality with quantity, and we think we have done a pretty good job at it so far.

Over these past three years and a half we have welcomed nearly 100,000 happy diners, and cant wait to continue this into the future. We have expanded our menus for larger group and these have been welcomed with open arms, for those wanting larger menus with entrees and deserts for a family get together, birthday or christmas party, not only can you enjoy a great value everyday dinner, but enjoy a special occasion with special people. Our communal table offering has really been welcomed by locals and international visitors. Sitting in the top 150 restaurants in Sydney out of over 4500 on Tripadvisor, visitors to Sydney love discovering a unique offering while helping their pounds, euros or dollars go a little further. Locals have enjoyed an inexpensive, yet great quality dinner, and local workers have made Pizza Autentico their go-to office lunch on a Friday.  Be it the day before the City to Surf race, a casual catch up with mates or those wanting to discover something new.  Its affordable and simple,  and we plan to keep it that way!

Unfortunately, over the past couple of years costs associated with running businesses have been increasing. Our food costs, energy prices, wage costs, and increased legislation, have all put pressure on our operation. 

With this in mind, in order to our continue to offer quality food and service, in an inner city location, we have had to take the decision to raise our everyday unlimited pizza and pasta menu to $25pp, as of Wednesday, September 13th. 

This price increase will enable us to ensure we continue to offer the best quality produce on our pizza and pasta, ensure our service is up to that you have come to expect and ensure our prices can stay steady for the foreseeable future.

We trust you understand, and we look forward to welcoming you again soon

We have already added more amazing pizzas for your enjoyment, so keep an eye out for these next time you dine with us. Our group menus stay the same starting at just $29pp which include arancini and salads, plus our pizza and pasta. 

We feel our offering is still doing what we set out to achieve: making Sydney dining affordable again without reducing the quality of food and service. 

We trust you understand the reasons for this price increase, and we look forward to your continued custom. 

From the whole team at Pizza Autentico - Thank you and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

Negroni Week 2017: June 5-11

If you are not aware of the Negroni, where have you been!? 

It’s an Italian classic and one of the fastest growing cocktails in Australia in the past few years. Go to a top end cocktail bar or a local Italian joint and they will be pumping out some pretty tasty Negronis. They are a bitter, bold, smooth and a pretty hard drink with the bit of a punch. Yes it’s an aquired taste, but delicious!  

However popular these drinks are getting, it’s surpising how many people dont know about the drink, here you go, check out the video below and scoll down for more info on Negroni Week. 

In celebration of this great drink, every year Imbibe magazine and Campari present Negroni Week. June 5th- 11th we will be offering our Barrel-aged Negroni, and alternatives to help spread the word of this great drink and raise some $$ for a great cause.  The barrel ageing of the negroni makes it a little smoother and bring all the characteristics together from the classic negroni. 

We have already donated to Ozharvest and the more we sell in this period the more we will donate. $2 from every additional drink will be sent to help support Ozharvest at the end of the week. 

Like our Street Smart campaign which we run every December,  and raises hundreds of dollars, we are asking you guys to come in and support these great causes which really go to help the grass roots issues in Australia. 

Ozharvest collect otherwise wasted food from Australians and distribute it to those in need. You may have read about their recent

Drink up, it’s for a great cause, and if it’s your first Negroni, make it a great one. Even if you don't like it, at least your purchase will help out those in need. 

Ciao! 

Get carb-loading for the Sydney Half Marathon this Sunday!

Sunday 21st May is the Sydney Half Marathon presented by The Sydney Morning Herald. Another great event in this wonderfull city! 

It’s been  medically proven that carbloading before a long distance race can basically make you a winner.  This means you should visit us at least once this week in the run up to the big race. Your trainer will love you for it, trust us! 

But seriously, while carbloading can help in the weeks leading up to a long distance race, we are just having a bit of fun. Ofcourse eating a tonne on pizza and pasta all the time isn't going to do much to help your training but like anything, in moderation, it can actually help you build up your energy reserves for slow release energy on the big day! And if you’re not running, then there is always a place for pizza and pasta in your life, any day of the week!  

Sydney Half marathon is a great race which goes through the heart of the city, fingers crossed for a beautiful day on Sunday! If you are visiting Sydney, and want to watch it there are some great vantage points around the City, from the botanical gardens, to the rocks and around the newly developed Barangaroo area. Cheer on the runners, and explore this great city! It also raises a huge amount of money for charities, so if you know any one who is running, throw them a few $$ to their nominated Charities! 

We are open every day from 6pm during the week,  and 5.30pm Friday-Sunday. So get to the gym, and then carry on the training with us :)

Yes... we do now split the bill for groups 🎉

We know this is one of the biggest questions you all ask... Can we split the bill?

Well, until now we have been pretty strict at saying no. Why? Well it's complicated... But the most exciting thing is that this is about to change, thanks to groupee. There are loads of reasons why we, and so many other restaurants have been saying no splitting he bills in the past, but that's about to change!

So we know its frustrating when 25 of you finish, no one has cash and you need to either run to the nearest ATM or transfer to your mate while he puts it on his card.  You should be heading to another bar and not dealing with this!

So why cant we, and why do we do this to you? 

We can only talk from our oint of veiw, but this is a sydney wide issue. No on lets you split bills, and it does suck, but its gonna be better, we promise 

We offer exceptional value in our offering, and with that means that we dont have a door person standing at the door with little else to do but welcome guests and print bills. and thus it is our waitsaff who run bills, and take payments. Its just not possible to take them away from serving tables for such a long time to split a bill a million times ( 😡) Each card transaction takes up to 1 minute, not even allowing for people unsure of the account, or getting the pin wrong, or not having money in the account and needing to transfer. Multiply this for 25 and thats nearly half and hour to process 1 bill. We seat 75 people, in one siting. So you see where im going. 

But... this is the past, let us focus on the future. This is the exciting bit.  

Did you know there is an app out there which lets you and your mates not only split the bills, but take payments effortlessley and deals direct with the restaurant meaning if you all use groupee no transaction takes place and it can take just one minute for 25 people to split the bill. .  Means you guys can work it all out once you have your bill, get the staff to simply sign off the transaction with one simple code and you are one your way!

We love the idea of groupee and you can use it to pay your  way whether you are a couple of mates or a party of 48! It's another way to make Sydney dining even more accessible.
