A man who knifed his ex-partner and violently murdered her new date as they dined at a Sydney restaurant has been jailed for at least 30 years.

Alexander Villaluna, 45, previously pleaded guilty to murdering Keith Collins, 53, and wounding nurse Jovi Pilapil, 39, with intent to cause her grievous bodily harm in late March 2016.

His actions were "savage, cowardly and undertaken without hesitation", Justice Robert Beech-Jones said when sentencing Villaluna to 40 years in jail with a non-parole period of 30 years at the NSW Supreme Court on Thursday.
