In the outside seating area, you can feast on fresh and fabulous food, or eat inside and enjoy the light and bright, recently renovated interior while watching the world go by through the expansive windows.

Giuliano  is the restaurant manager, a Sicilian whose love for good food and the old traditional way of looking after guests made him a long term manager for a number of well known Italian restaurants in Sydney like “Il Caminetto”. His charming smile and his attention to detail make every stay at Piccola Baia a small treat.

 

Stefano  is Piccola Baia’s head chef.  He started cooking school when he was 15 years old, and cooked up a storm at various locations throughout Italy, as well as for six months in the islands of the Caribbean. In Sydney, he’s cooked at Wildfire at Circular Quay, La Caminetto in the Rocks, alongside Giuliano, and until recently was head chef at Russell Lea’s La Casa.  He moved to Sydney from Tuscany 8 years ago but his cooking is firmly rooted in the tradition of the best Italian  home food from his region. The menu at Piccola Baia and its constantly changing specials reflect not only his deep knowledge of Tuscan cuisine but most of all his passion for great food
