There was a dish of grated Parmesan on the table which was great because I didn't have to ask the waitress for some. My son in law ordered an entree of Penne in pink sauce, bacon,chilli, capsicum & onion with a... read more

Popped in for a quick lunch on Friday and pleasantly surprised at the menu and specials on the board. Even more surprised with the menu variety and quality of service was exceptional. Definitely eat there again either lunch or dinner. First class

My partner and I frequent this amazing restaurant! The food is divine, the service is impeccable and the atmosphere is wonderful. I have never had a disappointing experience here and would give more than 5/5 if it was possible. We eat out a lot as we travel for work often and have never been able to find somewhere that even...

Amazing food, tasting, big enough & good value. Plates were well design and full of details. We had Gnocchi 4 cheese and scaloppine as main plate. Service was friendly & professional.

I ate fish which I think was either frozen and then cooked or just overcooked. My partner's dish was good. The service was reasonable, not great. There... More

Excellent service and they had a divine gluten free penne which can have any sauce added. The wheat eaters also enjoyed their flavour some meals. About $20 per plate
