This establishment is amazing. It ticks all the boxes. My wife and I ate here on Friday night. I booked ahead and it was just as well. We could see no empty tables. We were seated at a window with a "beautiful view" across the lake and if this was not enough, there is a stylised mural of Florence adorning... More

Nice spot down by the lake at Emu Bank, plenty of parking available. We'd made a reservation, suggest you do as it was busy. Initial greeting was friendly and we were promptly shown to our table and offered drinks straight away. The menu has a good range, including vegetarian and gluten free options, to choose from. Our bruschetta was very... More

Enjoyed a very good meal with friends here the other night. The service was little hit & miss but the food was very, very good. I thought it offered a quite a variety of menu options at reasonable prices. Whether it was seafood, steak or pasta that was chosen, everyone at the table really enjoyed their meals. I can see...

I had eaten here a few times over the years but never been all that impressed. However, we came here for dinner and it has stepped up a few levels. The food was all excellent and well presented. The service was relaxed while still being attentive. We took our own wine (the corkage was only 4.50 per drinker) but had... More

I had dinner here with my family and was very impressed with the quality of the food. I had a nicely cooked steak accompanied by generous veg. My kids ordered spaghetti marinaras with their own modifications (one with no chilli, the other with some types of seafood removed) and these arrived exactly as ordered, in generous portions. The desserts were... More

This place is great and consistent. Food is always good, service is excellent and great value. You can take your own wine with very reasonable corkage. Make sure you book, because its very popular

We have been to this restaurant twice now and ob both occasions the level of service and the food was excellent. The only issue I have had was they have a special where you can get a reduced rate if you purchase the meal as a two or three course meal. However, when I went to pay it was all... More

Work group of 30 people. Polite and friendly service from the waitress. Good range of lunch 'specials' and ordinary menu. Frittata al pollo: nice combination, first time I had had such a dish at an Italian restaurant - only let down was the olive oil/dressing on the decorative salad - very chemical taste as the the oil was stale. Other... More

Attended Bella Vista last year and had such a nice experience we decided to return. We had a 6pm booking for my husband, grand-daughter and me. I felt a very negative vibe as soon as we entered, the staff looked harassed and not particularly welcoming. We were given the worst table in the room, in front of the kitchen and... More
