Fiasco opened its doors in 2006, after much Italian-style discussion and deliberations, usually over Friday night family pizza. A passion for simple, traditional Italian cooking led head chef Stefano Mazzina and his family to create a menu which offers diners a taste of time-honoured family recipes in a friendly and relaxed setting.
Stefano and his team are passionate about using small, local producers in all areas of the business. They aim to keep alive the Italian tradition of a strong connection all the way from the paddock to the plate. It’s this relationship that ensures the highest quality seasonal ingredients and provides the inspiration for many of the dishes. The team at Fiasco are excited about playing their part in a sustainable future for the region’s farmers and growers.
A seasonally changing menu, with highlights from different regions of Italy, means there is always something new to experience. Charming wait staff will guide you through the daily specials and ensure your evening is relaxed and memorable. The heartwarming cooking and service, combined with an award-winning wine list, have achieved Fiasco a place in the Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide every year since 2008.

My wife and I ordered grilled swordfish. It took some time until it was done, but then we each got a nicely grilled piece about the size of a T Bone steak. Our daughter liked the salad. It might not be the place for a formal dinner but if you are hungry for fish at a reasonable price it’s certainly worth going there.
Heaps of choice of fresh fish to cook at home. We got the $35 family basket – nice variety, plenty to eat, fast service, great taste. A good way to end a day out in the town before heading home again.
Stopped by the Fishermen’s Co-op just before the lunchtime crowd and the snapper was excellent. The crumbing was light and the oil fresh. In fact all the fish there looked great. The calamari was fresh and actually squid rings not mashed together to look like a ring. It got very busy quickly after I arrived and seating outside on the covered deck is limited so get in early or takeaway to the beach close by.
We came to buy a selection of fish and seafood for a BBQ later that day. The choice was first class, and the service good. The fish was very fresh, and we enjoyed the snapper cutlets, the marlin steak and the prawns. Delicious!
