About the restaurant
Our story of Eddy + Wolff means so much to us.
Thao: I grew up on Eddy Cres
Vien: And I grew up on Wolff Cres.
It's where we met and when our journey all began. This is why we created this place so we can all meet you here.
Imagine a small bar in Asia, whether it be Japan or Hong Kong. Off the beaten track meaning somewhere where you wouldn’t think you’d find us. A place you’d step into and feel like it’s not something that’s on the Gold Coast.
A cosy intimate space that transports you into another time, that will immerse you in flavours that are true and authentic, full of heart and soul from everything we loved eating growing up in Canberra and from our travels from all over Asia.
Our space will allow you to reminisce about your old school days from the music we play or your travels to Asia from the flavours in our dishes, we would like you to feel a sense of belonging, a connection that will take you back to where we ‘all’ came from.

Fabulous evening at Tayta for their live music. Very innovative menu and the Food was so delicious and you could see lots of love had gone into the preparation. The waiter recommended a Pisco Sour and it paired perfectly with the cuisine and might just be my new favourite cocktail! Will definitely be back soon. Highly recommend!

About the restaurant
Arrived from Rome in 2014, the Mancini family decided to change their lives and embark on a new and exciting adventure in Australia. After several experiences as Chefs in Italy and also in Australia, Valentina and Otello decide in 2019 to return on the market with a singular hospitality concept that had already been successful in Rome since 2010 . Radici Pasta House, in Italian language “Radici” means roots indicating the intention to offer a cuisine deeply rooted in Italian food culture with a modern accent and an extreme attention to the overall experience. Head Chef Marco Minore, who also joined Radici Pasta House in 2019, with his menu has contributed to giving life to this project which, in addition to the particular chef table seats around the bar, represents something unique in Gold Coast and beyond.

Absolutely amazing food. Delicious, beautifully presented and totally enjoyable. A little disappointing was the $10 per head corkage. So BYO not really recommended. But everything else is fabulous.
