Nothing special and hard to park. I always love Italian so the night was reasonable but had superb Italian the night after in Sydney at Sixteen and the difference was marked. Ok for a regional centre and pizza and pasta always works but ultimately, just ok.

Fiasco was our special occasions dinning venue, now its a glorified pizza shop.. Our waiter was rude and ruff , when I asked for meals to be explained he just read them out to us in Italian, I don't speak Italian, he attended our table like we were a burden. Very disappointing .

We had a delicious dinner for two and we ordered mainly tapas dishes similar to what we had eaten in Italy. The service was quite good as it was a really busy night and the restaurant was full. They also had pizzas which looked so good that we ordered take away a few nights later and they were really great.

i went to this restaurant tonight expecting a great meal. Instead, we were served by a disinterested waiter who was obviously just earning his wage. My husband's food, although tasty, was a small portion, even though we normally find meals in Australia far too large! There was little on the menu for a vegetarian, so I asked for the fungi...

Cramped seating despite having booked a week prior. Service was cold and impersonal. Not what we expected having read reviews. Portion sizes were on the smaller side for the price so we would suggest to ensure you order an entree.

Brilliant. Good atmosphere and amazing, tasty food and great value. There is a variety of delicious seafood dishes, pasta dishes and great pizzas. An array of creative Italian desserts. e.g. Panettone Ice-cream with rum

We arrived on a Friday night without a booking, and the hostess asked us to wait while she just checked to see if they could accommodate us. After juggling the seating we were shown to our table and the wine list and menu was presented to us. While deciding on our choices we watched as the Restaurant filled. The wine... More

I don't like giving average reviews but this used to be my favourite restaurant. Always high quality meals and I was happy to pay a bit extra for the experience. I'm not sure if it's changed hands but now seems to cater for a cheaper crowd with takeaway wood fired pizzas and diminished menu. My seafood pasta was average. My... More
