We went to this friendly establishment with the little kids for a family dinner during our visit to Surfers Paradise in August 2014. Everyone was extremely warm and welcoming straying from the young lady who greater us to the restaurant owner. The garlic bread was so fresh and warm. Overall, the food was good.

Went for dinner here as it was across from the Q1 where we were staying. The staff were warm and welcoming from the moment we arrived. We shared a VIP pizza (loads of prosciutto) and a Caesar Salad and both were great! If I lived here, it would be my local! Local

We absolutely love Italian food and eat a lot of it but this was some of the best we have had. The staff were friendly,... More

Had the Crommos pizza as a takeout, it was delicious. Friendly service, lots of families eating in and a generally good vibe. Will come again with a view to eat in.
