This Lovely family is gradually adopting its new identity of "getting more trendy" coocking some delicious version of Italian dishes. The Decor looks quite simple from outside but when you get inside the atmosphere is unic. Best dish is defenitely the SEAFOOD RAGU, a great interpretation of the best italian mixed seafood i ever found! Be back again!

We ate here twice during our stay, service was fantastic and the food superb. Both nights the staff were helpful and friendly. My son is coeliac, they went out of their way to make sure what he was receiving was gluten free for him. Well done guys, keep up the good work.

My daughter recommended this place but it was a bit of a disappointment. It is fairly basic and the food wasn't brilliant. My wife ordered stuffed mushrooms, but sent them back. They gave her an alternative dish which was fine. I had pizza which wasn't too exciting. OK but I wouldn't rush back

Four of us went here for dinner found the place & outdoor area very pleasant & the service to be great. Italian food very similar to other Italian restaurants in the Gold Coast to be standard. Haven't tried there pizzas yet.

Husband and I had dinner here on the first night of our Gold Coast holiday. Service is quick and friendly, and food is superb. We had an entree of garlic bread and then shared a "Fettachooki" pizza - chicken, feta and spring onions. Absolutely delicious. It tastes just as traditional pizza should! Loved it.

When in Surfers on a Saturday lunch time one starts to look around for a sit down, stretch out and to savour tastes of fine cusine and a light drop of sav blanc. This is the place to enjoy slowly. The position is ON the beach, the 7 staff were well mannered and professional and the decor thoughtfully done. The... More
