Almost since this restaurant opened me and my family have continuously been going here either on our own or to celebrate family birthdays. While the service at times can be a little slow it is in no way a negative. The quality of food and presentation is some of the best I've seen can not go past... read more

Dining in was a disappointing experience as the take away pizzas are always so good. Restaurant service is sooo slow!

To the owners. I am sorry but have to write to tell you what I experienced tonight....I'm confused..I've read some great recent reviews of this restaurant, but my experience with tonight's takeaway was terrible. With past owners, our family could comfortably celebrate special occasions there, welcome overseas guests to the Sunshine Coast there, or just have an intimate dinner. Without... More

This little neighbourhood eatery is situated in "Pleasantville" aka The town of Seaside in Marcoola. We were here in low season so the opening hours seemed a bit random but we ate here on a Tuesday night and had a great value for money $45 pizza/pasta/bottle of wine meal deal which was more than ample for three of us.

We have been twice now since the new owners have taken over and both times we found the food very good and the welcome very warm. This is a lovely casual dinning restaurant in a lovely quiet location opposite a park. The second time we went it was a lot busier so I guess the word is getting out that... More

A lovely setting for a yummy Italian Family dinner. The pasta dishes we all had were very tasty. There are lots of great deals for different nights of the week with a kids eat free Thursday. The staff are very friendly and cheerful.

A cold wet Friday night and this gem was rather empty However, greeted by a friendly waitress who later we discovered was the new owner. She outlined the specials in a professional and friendly manner which is delightful. We ordered the garlic pizza as an entree deciding on our mains. The pizza arrived quickly and was fantastic perfect balance of... More

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
