I've been here on a Monday night when the restaurant wasn't busy at all, and the service wasn't that bad, but we got main courses while some of us were still eating starters and obviously the table hasn't been cleared from entrees. The quality of the food was poor, I had the gnocchi with ox tail ragu, and even if... More

Our first time here and we enjoyed our meal and the service. Our waitress had a good knowledge of the Italian wine list and gave us a tasting of three different white wines that were available by the glass, what a great way to take care of customers that are not sure of what they would like to order. The... More

Dropped in for a quick impromptu dinner on Saturday night. Knew it would be busy as always, but being it was latish i was sure we would get spot, even if it was at the bar, which it was. Ordered the Otto pizza as not tried it before, bufala, speck, anchovies, capers, basil, dressed rocket. It was delicious, washed down... More

Visited this great Italian restaurant while on a work trip and the whole experience was fantastic, with close and attentive wait staff and delicious food we had a great time. I would recommend this place to the more relaxed diner who wants to enjoy the Italian way of life. The open kitchen provides entertainment and atmosphere. I will definitely be... More

We went here on the recommendation of some locals and weren't disappointed. Loved the gnocchi with oxtail ragu! The patate pizza was authentic in its simplicity. We hadn't planned on having desert but weakened and enjoyed a stylish tiramisu. Staff were friendly and attentive but never overbearing. Looking forward to trying other parts of the menu when we are next... More

Our party of 16 had dinner here during the week. We arrived 10 minutes early and we were told they dont open for another 10 minutes. All we wanted was a drink as it was a hot day. We were left standing at the front of the restaurant for the whole 10 minutes. Bad service. We had a set menu... More

The pizza was great here - nice base and fresh tasty toppings. Service was average if not a little pushy. I guess they aim to turnover as many tables as possible.

I'm very fussy when it comes to pizza, there is not a lot of places I can go and actually eat pizza and enjoy it, but I LOVE the pizza here. It can be a bit pricey but personally I think its worth it. I also find the service very friendly and helpful. I'd book in advance, every time we... More

I had heard a lot about the pizza here and I was disappointed. I make better pizza at home. Crust was overcooked, some of the toppings were bland and they do not offer sugar free soft drinks. Service was good but if I am going to pay $20 for a pizza it needs to taste better than Dominoes.

Ive been going here on and off for 10 years. Was introduced to it by a girlfriend and its now on my top 10 list. I love the mushroom pizza there. Its more of your upper class type of pizza rather than your la porchetta (which i freakin love too). Anyway, if you are in the area and a $20... More
