the italian trattoria in Glebe

Locally Sourced and DOP italian Produce × Crafted with Love


Located in Glebe Point Road, Ombretta is serving truthful Italian regional food in a casual environment.

Ombretta opened in May 2013 and is located beside the Toxteth Hotel in Glebe. Since then, it has been serving quality interpretations of classic Italian dishes and it quickly conquered a special place in the heart of both the local and Sydney’s communities.

It is now under the guidance of the new owner and longtime restaurant manager Giacomo Palladin with renewed energy and a freshly designed Venetian menu, in addition to our monthly regional highlights and our wine tasting themed events.

We work with a small menu, crafted with love using only local and sustainable produce. All Italian imported ingredients are DOP certified (Denominazione di Origine Protetta) which granted us the prestigious Italian Chamber of Commerce and Industry Award ‘Ospitalità Italiana’ since 2016.

The historical building (ca. 1890) and the recently renovated interiors pay tribute to Glebe's historical past while creating a familiar and approachable atmosphere. The covered front courtyard facing the quieter part of Glebe Point Road is a fantastic place to unwind on a warm summer night but is equipped to shelter from Sydney's unpredictable weather, too.

The longer the table, the merrier the night!

At Ombretta we love celebrations and big communal tables. For us it is all about the people and the ritual of sharing good meals and good drinks. Organise your next function at Ombretta by choosing one of the below packages.

Ombretta also opens for exclusive lunches any day of the year, for a minimum of 20 guests.

Please contact us via the email link at the bottom to discuss your option and make your booking.



Pasta Feast - $50pp

This option involves a shared Antipasto della Casa (Prosciutto di Parma DOP, Parmigiano Reggiano DOP bites, Sicilian and Tuscan olives, homemade focaccia bread), 3 of our in house made pastas to share and alternate dessert drop. Ideal for informal gatherings, it is a more affordable option, but with limited freedom in terms of customisation.

3 courses dinner - $65pp

Choose your own entree and main from our current function menu (link below) with alternate dessert drop. This option is ideal for groups that need a personalised menu and it is ideal for co-workers dinners and family celebrations. A slightly more formal dinner with individually plated dishes, it does still retain the casual and relaxed Ombretta’s vibe.
