Noteworthy Reviews & Blogs
“This casual, simply decorated Italian restaurant in the heart of Surry Hills has sandstone walls and a flatteringly, lit two-storey dining space lined with bottles of vino. Mille Vini is a charming local haunt that offers weekly specials, classic dishes and a tidy drinks list. Plus, it’s located close to pubs and bars should you want to meet for a drink beforehand or kick on afterwards.”
“With a name that translates to ‘a thousand wines’, you can expect to be completely spoilt for choice at this popular Surry Hills wine bar. The longstanding Mille Vini is gorgeously intimate, serving up a careful curation of wines from across Italy, France, and Australia. Backing it up, you’ll find a menu of generous, rustic Italian fare, with options to complement any kind of wine sipping session.”
“This is legit the place of a thousand wines (yep, the actual Italian translation is just that). One of Sydney’s most-loved wine bars is here to celebrate all things wine/that compliment wine/that are wine, making it the numero uno spot for an aperitivo, a quick bite or a full-blown meal perfectly paired with the sweetest of drops.”
“We came, we ate, we most certainly drank. The combination of rustic, casual eats with mostly Italian wines in an intimate, character-filled venue is a definite winner attracting a broad range of locals, couples, girls nights out and group catch-ups. While there might not be 1,000 wines on the wine list, after my second dinner at Mille Vini I think there’s close to a thousand reasons to get in for a visit.”
“If you’re after a cosy wine-bar experience, look no further than former stonemason workshop Mille Vini. Snuggle down on their “love bench” and leave the ordering to the waitstaff, who recommend the salumi misti, a selection of cured meats; and the formaggi platter paired with a bottle of Chianti.”
“Italian for “a thousand wines”, Mille Vini is a place for long, relaxed afternoons filled with good conversation, and even better wine. The venue’s list runs just short of 100 wines, with regional Italian, French and Australian varieties to complement the dining menu.”
“The atmosphere at Mille Vini is fun and friendly, upstairs there is also a sandstone dining area, the perfect place to make things a little more intimate. “
“The staff just can’t be faulted for their attentiveness, and the vibe is like being in an authentic Italian bar. The fact that it’s in an 1853 heritage-listed stonemason’s building doesn’t hurt either. This combined with the empty bottles on display, a bike riding up the wall towards the roof and the low-level lighting all add to the effect. It is recommended to book before you go, particularly on a Friday or Saturday.”
“As locals, we’ve driven past this place a million times. And we’re so glad we finally managed to drop in. Excellent service and food and wine to match! Not sure how you’re spending your Friday nights, but this is where I’ll be spending mine!”
“Mille Vini has specials throughout the week like the all you can eat pasta on Mondays for $20 or half price antipasti on Thursdays so this place is def a winner with the locals!”
“Mille Vini meaning ‘a thousand wines’ in Italian screams wine bar-come restaurant. The high walls are adorned with rows and rows of quality wine, and bottles even make an appearance on the stairwell. The restaurant has a homely vibe. I felt as though I was at someones Nona’s house, smelling delicious aromas coming from the kitchen.”
