Our favourite spot on the Peninsula for dinner. The staff are knowledgeable about their menu which is greatly appreciated as a gluten free vegan- so many options and nothing is a hassel.
The food is beautifully presented and full of flavour. The only problem is choosing what to eat- although they can even help with that too!
Perfect for any occasion and especially if you like sampling menus.

Food and service was beautiful, take a look at the menu ahead of time as traditional Italian might require a little bit of Googling. Amazing gin and wine selection.

Everything was amazing except for the portion sizes. We spent $100+ between two and still had to have a proper dinner afterwards

Everything was very good. Ambience fantastic, meals very good, the only complaint I had was that the meals for the three of us all came out separately, with quite a few minutes in between

We ordered scallops which had been over cooked in the shell to a ridiculously high temperature.
We were not warned of this by the wait staff.
I went to get my scallop grabbing the shell which burnt me to the point of leaving a blister and spoiling my experience.
I was offered an apology and was not charged for the scallops.
I am a regular at this fine establishment,if the food and service was not to such a high standard.
This incident would have me not return.

Lovely food at reasonable prices. Separate Vegan menu was much appreciated. Did no really like that I had to provide credit card details to make a booking though. Overall lovely relaxed atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle where you could carry on a conversation. A lovely last minute find.

A lovely space—intimate and lively with a relaxed atmosphere that settles you in quickly. The menu is broad yet focused with interesting options of varying sizes, styles and flavours. Unusually, and excitingly, they serve a (very) complete plant-based menu that is equally as—and in some cases more—interesting than the regular. The staff are polite, attentive and helpful. The wine list is good and suits the menu well. Of note is the attention to detail to gin and tonics—well-made, well-garnished, served in an ideal glass with an impressively crystalline prism of ice cut to measure.

If you're staying in or around Mornington, this is a great spot for an intimate dinner with a partner or a few friends.
