Busy night, big menu, get 'em in and get 'em out, efficient although slightly pushy staff - well run restaurant, a tad pricy - $45 for a plate of spaghetti with half a moreton bay bug ( a half !?!) some scallops and a few other bits of seafood, nothing inspiring, no interesting sauce to justify the price. All too... More

Va Tutto has been a favourite of ours for several years now. Always reliable and innovative food, friendly & attentive service, and good wine list make this a great find in an area somewhat lacking in fine dining. Casual bistro area offers a family-friendly option to the more formal restaurant, but the food is equally good.

Its the full package - lovely atmosphere, friendly staff, delicious food and wine. Highly recommended for a casual meal in the bistro, a date night or a gathering with friends.

Had a very special lunch here yesterday. Food was awesome, service was friendly and attentive without being annoying and I can't think of any negatives at all! Amazing choice on the menu, table of eight all had different and it all came out together beautifully cooked. Desserts were a masterpiece, the pavlova looked particularly stunning.

Paul & Myrto ( the owners) run a fantastic husband and wife combo here. Paul is a master chef in the kitchen, very fussy on ensuring the highest quality food is selected and produces a fine dining experience for people with Champagne taste but Coca cola pockets ! The restaurant is modern, bright and airy. Myrto runs front of house... More

Apparently, this restaurant now has 2 sittings but did not mention that when we booked so they would not take our orders for around 30 minutes because we were too late for the first sitting & too early for the second. Staff were surly & unhelpful. Food was average.

Nice enough food - two of us had schnitzel, two had fish, one had a Thai curry. We have eaten here before but there must have been a change of wait staff. Bossy waitress keen to take drink orders but then we were ignored, and had to summon her to place our dinner orders, only to be told, 'In a... More
