I wrote a review previously for the pizza which was great, but have since had a mains with friends and have to say we were very disappointed. The chef or cook can not cook mains. It is not even good home style food. Sorry but not good enough. Service was slow also waited 1.5 Hours at least and it wasn't... More

So I called ahead just in case they were busy and was told I should book, which I did for 7. We didn't arrive until 8 and were told that we were lucky because they had only just turned off the ovens. It was empty and they really didn't want us to be there, rushing for us to order. I... More

Top menu choices and beautiful food. Garden variety pasta dishes made into something special. All family members enjoyed it.

Once again, this little Italian restaurant, tucked away in what must be; one of the prettiest streets on the coast - has blown us away. I am a lover of seafood pasta; and this is, without doubt; THE BEST I've eaten! Linguine con gambler I e granchi. Absolutely FULL of fresh prawn, crab, perfectly balanced chilli, tomato and topped with... More

We used to get great takeaway pasta and pizza at Cucina al Mare - delicious and generous serves. But they have a new chef (and a new owner?) and th food that we had tonight was terrible. The pasta dish was a very small serve, watery, and we could have made a more tasty carbonara at home. The pizza was... More

Having recently moved to the Marcoola area, my family and I were enjoying a stroll on the beach. Upon returning, we stumbled across an innocent yet homely looking Italian Restaurant amongst a tower of townhouses and units. We were warmly welcomed with open arms and a sense of 'homeliness' only ever encountered at my Nanas old place. While we examined... More

We thought we would try something a bit different for Valentine's Day this year and glad we did! This is a well-established cosy little place tucked away in the Town of Seaside, and worth seeking out. Apparently it has not long been in new hands (a pleasant young couple) and when we visited, a brand new head chef. We didn't... More
