We left simply feeling sad that we wasted $80. We were seated by a window that had a draft. The drink orders took 15 minutes and a reminder before they arrived. Staff then came and asked if we wanted out side dish to come to table at the same time as our mains. We said yes. They then bought that... More

We tend to sit outside on Fridays and watch the weather and the street scene. Good Italian food and afordable wine. Well worth a visit.

The service was excellent, reasonably priced, and the food, I couldn't fault! We had Sicilian spice chicken and fettucini and it was exquisite, full of flavour and the homemade pasta made the dish! It was a gourmets delight. For we had potato skins with Aoli. These were average. The dessert, well that's another story! It blew out minds and taste... More

Great service! Food excellent A great surprise, this little restaurant located in a corner of Northbourne Ave. Away from the trendy areas, has created a reputation on its own right Highly recommended Had dinner Saturday night, all tables full, glad I made a reservation

Liked the friendly service, fresh oysters and sparkling wine. My kids liked the Kids' Menu (one had pasta and one pizza - clearly just made with fresh ingredients). Fish of day was battered (I would have preferred a choice on cooking method)

First impressions were completely uninspiring. The restaurant looked drab and boring like being at a school camp cafeteria. Couldn't blame the waitresses who did their best and they were friendly. The meal, like the décor , was bland and not very tasty. The wine list was okay and the bill was reasonable in terms of Canberra. A forgettable night!

Took visiting friends to The Haig. Terrible idea. One of our group tried to make a booking 3 months ago- told Resturant was out of commission. This is still the case. Open floor hallway seating that allowed us to view the hotel guests heading back and forth from the pool. Group in bar overhead was having incredibly loud party- staff... More

Dined at the Haig Italian Restaurant with two friends, which we used the coupon from the Entertainment book. When we arrived, the building looked run down and there was quite a lot of construction happening around the place. The Restaurant is part of the Capital Hotel and the main entrance was closed, so we had to venture around to the... More

We went here for dinner as we bought their living social deal. Staff were friendly, helpful and attentive as soon as we walked in. Meals came out very quick. We orderd the garlic prawns for entree... These were delicious! Although $20 for four prawns is a little steep in my opinion. My partner ordered the chicken breast with pesto rissotto.... More
