    Our party of six all thought the food was excellent. One friend would have liked a champagne style on the wine menu but most of us liked the Prosecco. The reds we ordered were appreciated by all. Seating was very good. We had a noisy crowd near us but it was ok. Service was very good to excellent. One friend would have liked a Pedro Ximenez on the liquor list but it is an expensive sherry to stock. Thanks again. We will be back.

    A warm welcome, service with smile and delicious food in this busy small, family-run Italian gem. The decor is modern with concrete floors so it did get noisy. Overall a fabulous Sunday lunch.

    Such a great experience dining here. It’s family owned and operated so the service is next level. Best wood fired pizza and espresso martini I’ve had! It’s got a homely ambience which we loved.

    I got given a flat glass of champagne, after one sip I told them. I was told It was the last of the bottle so I ordered something else to drink, but was still charged $20 for a flat glass of champagne that I did not drink. It was only after I left I realized.

    Italian good just the way you want it. Generous portions of delicious homemade pasta and rich ragu, or plated mains cooked with skill. A local diner that every bayside food lover should add to their regular haunts.

    Lovely food, quite authentic Italian flavours, I struggle with the options for entrees, but this is just personal taste as this was really a great restaurant and will go back there for sure. The pizzas are always really good, but so were the mains. Totally recommend it.

    We arrived for an early dinner at 3.30-4pm. The chef running the pizza oven was on a break for a couple of hours so unfortunately half of the menu was not available eg pizzas , calzones, garlic bread etc. It would have been nice to know beforehand when we booked as this restaurant makes great pizzas. Our main meal of fillet of beef was great.

    We received a warm welcome on arrival and were offered a choice of tables to sit. The restaurant had a good ambiance though the noise level was high. We ordered the bruschetta to start which was delicious and a generous portion. I followed this with the barramundi which was perfectly cooked. My husband enjoyed the seafood pasta which had plenty of seafood. We had a lovely evening and it us definitely a place we would go back to.

    Nice little restaurant and ambience, atmosphere - all the makings. Food and drink very good in terms of quality. I feel it’s a bit overpriced overall (food and drink) compared to other restaurants. Service was friendly but could sweep the tables a bit more and entrees took some time - maybe a bit understaffed on the night?
