Not as good as previous visits. Our mains came out first, then our entrees and finally our drinks. Service was a bit disappointing this time round but the food was great.

I booked Happy as Larry for a work lunch meeting. I arrive, said my booking name and the waitress directed me to the top level table. My work colleague walk, said my booking name and was directed to the lower level. We sat at different tables for almost 25 minutes before we texted each other and found out we had both been sitting at our tables separately the whole time. The waiter took my drink order but I did not receive this until at least half an hour later. AS it was a late booking for lunch (1.30pm) and not busy that the staff did not realise two people were sitting separately and it was the same booking. I was extremely disappointed by the service, not to mention this was a work meeting so our valuable time was cut short.

The food was quite bad. The potato on the potato pizza was literally chips. The calamari was terrible. The dirty carbonara lacked sauce and what was there was hardly creamy and the bacon was hard and extremley salty.

Been here multiple times, the food is a little expensive but it’s fantastic, I’ve never tasted pizzas so intense with flavour & the pizza base with the perfect texture, the pasta is amazing also, their mushroom pasta is divine, I bring my friends here too, they are happy to customise the dish slightly, my only critique would be the wine list isn’t extensive, but it’s more for a casual lunch then a fine meal, but the quality is o par to those fine dining venues.

Extraordinary pizza. The entire table said it was the best pizza they have had in Sydney. Great service. Nice atmosphere. Very hospitable team. You will leave very satisfied.

We were a table of 9 and everyone's food got brought out at different times when though we all ordered together. Some of our group had finished eating by the time I got my food.
My order was placed incorrectly so had to ask why I hadn't received my food to only then be told there had been a mix up.
Very slow service and they should definitely but more wait staff.

Its a great place! Good food, and adequate options for vegetarians like me. The place does get a bit hot, so some ventilation would make it better.

Large portions and lots of yummy options! My green and lean salad was delicious and would definitely eat here again. Went at lunch time so was a little noisy but that's to be expected. Service was also very prompt and friendly.

Came during the lunch rush with a booking so they were quite busy. I won't judge on first visit and will return but the staff were getting meals wrong at various tables and noise level can by high at times.

Pizza was good but pasta was a struggle. It really felt rushed and lacked flavour.

It's not fine dining, but I didn't expect it to be either.

Will try it again and give them a second shot at it.

You must lessen the chilli on your frutti de mare as it was too spicy - my brother ate his meal!
Also, your carbonara is too dry with burnt bacon bits added.
Our lunch was not exactly pleasant!

Good casual eatery and friendly service, albeit a bit slow but they were busy at lunchtime. Good for groups maybe up to 6.

We loved the zucchini spiral option instead of the pasta because we are on a low carb diet.

We booked a table however we were given a table right next to entrance which was two round tables pushed together. It seemed like all patrons coming in after us were seated upstairs. We had asked if we could sit up the top but was told there was no room, and was not offered to change at any time. One of our meals cabonara pasta seemed to be full of bacon rind & fat, all of which was left on the plate. My pasta prawn liguini & mushrom burger were nice, coffee was good.
