Beppi's Restaurant

Welcome to Beppi’s Italian Restaurant Sydney


Beppi's is proud to announce that we celebrated our 61st anniversary on the 10th of June 2017, a record for a restaurant in Australia.

61 Years ago a young Italian named Beppi took a risk and opened a small eatery in Darlinghurst which came to be known as Beppi’s.

Back then TV did not exist, Robert Menzies was Prime Minister of Australia, Dwight D. Eisenhower was president of the USA, Elvis had his first chart hit with Heartbreak Hotel & Prince Rainier married Grace Kelly.

A lot has changed since then, however Beppi’s has stood the test of time and flourished with 61 years of service to our valued customers for which we express our sincere gratitude.

Salute from all of us at Beppi's

When you eat something, it's a sensation for the palate, you must taste it. Flavour is the thing. That's what it's all about - It makes you feel good. - Beppi Polese
