Crinitis has a number of locations for their Italian bar and restaurant in Sydney, Newcastle and Melbourne. We visited the Woolloomooloo spot which has an ideal location on the waterfront at the wharf. There’s a bunch of restaurants at Woolloomooloo wharf, packed with diners eager for a social lunch or dinner out and a drink or two. Crinitis by far has the best vibe of the restaurants here and it is suitable for all different crowds – family, couples, friends, parties and events. The private section upstairs has it’s own bar and is the perfect space for private functions/events.
The space is casual and comfortable and there’s plenty of space here. Wooden furniture and wicker chairs and Italian wall art. Although you can sit on a lovely table outside, there’s plenty of space inside too and be sure to check it out, because as you walk inside, the first thing you will notice are the superbike Ducati’s hanging from the ceiling!
We were super impressed to see a very extensive menu comprised of pizza, pasta, meats, salads, and light meals. In the salad section, there is plenty of choice from burrata to salmon, octopus or the salad we chose; the quinoa and cranberry salad, a good super good choice.
Our other salad was topped with some beautiful fresh figs (actually on the light meal list). Other light meals on offer include bunless burgers, grilled fish and salmon and a shred pasta just to name a few, so if you’re on a healthy kick, there is certainly plenty to choose from.
For those into a good pizza or pasta, this is your place. You can get vegan and gluten free options too. They are also good for sharing. On this visit, we elected to get a pasta and chose the pumpkin gnocchi and the crab linguine.
The crab linguine, made with extra virgin olive oil, garlic, confit cherry tomatoes and asparagus making smashing sauce to go with the crab meat and fresh pasta made for a delicious plate! Next time we’ll leave space for a Mac ‘n’ cheese pizza!
There’s also huge skewers, meat options from the grill, sides and we can honestly say this has got to be one of the biggest menus we’ve ever seen! That’s why it’s the best meet up spot for family and friends.
Drinks wise you can get fresh juices and alcoholic drinks. We were there on a Sunday afternoon so just had some juices; the Vit C Booster Juice and watermelon breeze.
The food here is delicious and service is friendly and lively. We thoroughly recommend a visit.
