Last night was some of the worst food I've had. I had spag bog and the pasta wasn't cooked, there was no sauce had no flavour and I waited an hour for it. They also charged $9 for a tiny bowl of penne for my 9 month old. What a joke definitely dont recommend or will I ever go back!!

This is one of the best Italian pizzeria restaurants that ai have been to outside Italy. It is a family business and people there are very friendly. Even when the dining room is full it never looks crowded. Best to book a table as the place can get busy especially at weekends. The food is very good and the quality... More

These would have to be the tastiest pizzas I have ever had (and that is a few), restaurant was full which is always a good sign but we wanted takeaway so we could sit on the beach opposite and enjoy the food. Well worth the visit

Always amazing value. Cheap and cheerful meal, food always comes out hot and fresh. Downside is that it's very noisy due to concrete floors and brick walls, but sometimes this adds to the festive mood of the place. Always full of people. Brilliant!

OMG! What a terrible experience. all was good till the waitress came over and asked how our entee of Brushcetta was. We said we were not happy and that it wasnt very good. Well then the waitress proceeded to argue with us about it. So then they made us wait about an hour and when questioned about where our food... More

We were trying to find somewhere still serving meals after 9pm on a Saturday night. On entering, it was obvious the waitress was conferring with the kitchen as to whether they were still cooking and they did decide to seat us if we chose our meals quickly. This was fine, but the obvious remarks and virtual rolling of eyes (we... More
