This lockdown is annoying, but we do have a few things we can enjoy. Ready-to-eat, takeaway pasta from some of the best restaurants in town is one of them. Whether you’re tired of your attempts to cook the king of carbs at home or you’ve just run down your personal stockpile of packet pasta, these places will sort you out.

Feel like something else for dinner? See our full list of Sydney restaurants, cafes and bars that have shifted to takeaway.

Fratelli Paradiso

Cafe

This Potts Point institution is offering "Paradiso a Casa," a takeaway menu that's available for pick-up from 4pm Monday–Saturday. Yep, that means the lasagne, pasta scampi and the tiramisu can all be enjoyed from home.

Restaurant 12-16 Challis Avenue, Potts Point
Order on Providoor

Fabbrica

Shop

Open and selling pasta, pantry staples, and more. Pasta pack delivery is available via Uber Eats. We'll be making a beeline for the slow-cooked Wagyu and red wine ragu with rigatoni.

Humble Bakery

Cafe

Bastardo, the Bodega crew’s latest restaurant, is closed for this lockdown. But sister business Humble Bakery is stocking family-sized Bastardo pasta packs in-store for $50. Choose a sauce (we see you, duck and porcini ragu), to go with 500 grams of hand-rolled pasta and a golden hunk of parmigiano reggiano for shaving. You can pre-order here.

50 Holt Street, Surry Hills

Totti's

Restaurant

As part of Merivale’s home-delivery service, the menu from Totti’s (including its popular puffy bread) is available for takeaway. The almost-ready pasta line-up changes regularly – the lamb ragu pappardelle and tomato and basil fettucine is a past highlight.Order here.

283 Bondi Road, Bondi

Pilu at Freshwater

Restaurant

Look, we understand it’s not Pilu at Freshwater without that stunning vista over the sea. But the Sardinian restaurant’s takeaway menu translates surprisingly well to at-home dining. Coming into colder weather, comfort is the name of the game and, unsurprisingly, pasta features heavily on Pilu’s new menu. We like the look of maccheroncini with lamb ragu. Order here. Open from Wednesday to Sunday.

Beppi’s

Restaurant

This Italian stalwart is now “Beppi’s a Casa” and the dishes on the new takeaway menu were specifically designed with at-home dining in mind. On the pasta front, the ricotta gnocchi and the scampi tagliolini look like real standouts. Check out the menu and order here.

21 Yurong Street (Corner Stanley Street), East Sydney

Marta

Restaurant

On top of running a successful daytime bakery. When you order, the eye-catching cacio e pepe will definitely be a tempting choice. But we have our eye on the amatriciana with guanciale and pecorino. Delivery is available via Uber Eats and Deliveroo.
