Cuisine: Italian, Pizza

Whether you have been to Italy or not, you may already know that we take our cooking seriously!

The passion for food from the Napolitan region has been, in recent years influenced from many cultures, including French and Spanish. However, the story starts long before, these cultures with Etruscans, Greeks and Roman empires...

Through the years, most of the traditional dishes and recipes are often the creation of mothers and grandmothers rather than that of chefs, which makes many of the recipes ideally suited for home cooking.

Simplicity is the key, you don't need many ingredients to make a tasty dish, you need them to be genuine, fresh and treat them gently as our grandmothers have taught us.

We are True Napolitans, with a true heart and passion for cooking. This is really a little bit of Napoli here in Manly and we hope you will enjoy what we think is special, genuine and above all an experience that you will remember...

Buon Appetito

Love De Vita. Find it to be closer to the authentic Italian than many cafe style restaurants like this.

Fantastic as always. Hard to find a more authentic Italian restaurant in the Northern Beaches.

Grazie.

Pizza at De Vita is the best I ve ever eaten in Sydney. All the guys working there are super kind and great at their job! We really enjoyed the real taste of Italy!

- dined at De Vita Italian- Manly on

We had a very warm welcome and the service was impeccable. Food was excellent too. Shared calamari plate followed by pizza and spaghetti bolognaise. Glass of wine to finish off a lovely meal. My son enjoyed his birthday dinner very much. We will be back, and thank you for a lovely evening.

3 of us dining. Started with the burrata & prosciutto - best I've ever had! Scallopini was melt in mouth and the mussels which were a special for the night were absolutely yummy. All polished down with a bottle of Montepulciano d'Abruzzo and espresso to finish. Fantastico!!

De Vitas Italian restaurant was a lively venue to visit on Monday evening. When we first arrived there was some random hip hop (I think) playing, much to the delight of my partner but my father was not a fan! The waitress kindly obliged to change it on request and for the rest of the evening we enjoyed some Italian jazz. The first two entrees we shared were rich in garlic flavour. We especially loved the fried bread - Scugnizzi they called it, a massive proportion for the four of us! The place began to fill with people, a popular haven for locals and visitors to Manly. We had to wait a wee while for the mains to come. But the wait was worth it as all the meals looked like they had that homemade true Italian touch. They tasted sensational. I had to try a bit of everyone’s (my excuse - this review!) My favourite was the creamy prawn fettuccine and the lasagna! Melt in the mouth food. We left with grins on our faces after a wonderful night. Thanks De Vita’s staff (and to the kind waitress from Czechoslovaki who put up with dad asking 101 questions throughout the evening!)
We will definitely visit again.

We really enjoyed our meal, the restaurant ambience and the friendly team at De Vita. It was very busy but the service was good with the meal arriving quickly. Loved the pizza particularly, great to see it being cooked too!

Delicious calamari starter.
Carbonara not bad but not the best I’ve had.
Rocket salad and pizza delicious.
The waitress was great as were the cooking staff who were all very friendly. Very busy with lots of families as it’s school hols so great place for big groups and children. A large room so acoustics good.

Lovely place... great food... wonderful service!

- dined at De Vita Italian- Manly on

This was our first First Table experience and we were pretty happy with it. The food was delicious and very fresh. The Caprese salad with generous amounts of buffalo was delicious. I had the gnocchi with the kingfish which was fresh and tasty. My husband had the veal scallopine which he found was very fresh and tender. The waitress was very attentive and friendly. The only criticism we have is that the main courses did not come out together!! We’ll be back!!

Devita is one of the best pizzeria we have visited in Sydney! Definitely must try their dough. The space creates a cozy laid back atomosphere and the staff are so attentive, friendly and natural in their rapport. Would revisit time again. Thank you for having us!

We dined as a family of 4.Staff were helpful and attentive from the moment we arrived. We started with the calamari fritti-not overcooked and delicious. This was followed by 3 pizzas Regina (prosciutto) , Marechiaro (prawn) and salami.
We couldn't decide on our favourite! Thank you for a delicious evening.

Nice fresh flavoured authentic Italian pizza. It could have been cooked a few minutes more as it was a bit too soft and wet towards the centre. Paired well with the Chianti though! Gluten free option was good- great base! Service was quick and friendly.
