Tucked away in the cross junction of Sydney Road and Victoria Street sits Café Bellino.
It is a great little place to go if you are craving Italian food as they have one of the best calabrese menu. The pizza was mouth-watering but the main attraction would definitely be the band, Bella Ciao who plays every Friday.

Bella Ciao: Enio, Vincenzo and Salvatore plays amazing live Italian music entertaining the crowd both young and old.
The music starts at 7pm and with hits like L’Americano, Signorina, Arrivederci Roma and the crowd’s favourite, Bella Ciao; you can be sure that you will dance the night away!

You might even spot the resident guest singer, Mario who is 77 years old but is ever ready to belt out a roving performance of O Sole Mio.

You know a true Italian when he communicates with his hands; Mario is such a great storyteller with music!
