Me and my partner were really craving a Classic Italian meal and we were not disappointed, beautiful prawns, lovely pasta and top notch garlic pizza bread. Both walked out very happy and stuffed.

We were disappointed when we arrived at Surfers for our latest holiday because the restaurant we had frequented many times on our last visit was closed down. There are times when a restaurant remains in your memory and this was one of them. As it turned out, we remembered that they had just opened up another restaurant a little way... More

This is an authentic Italian restaurant that serving great Italian food. We ordered pizza, pasta and seafood, all of which were perfectly executed and tasted delicious. One thing must try is their home-made chilli paste. It is really hot, but full of flavour. You can put into any dish you like and it will throw you to the roof.

We were seated quickly and served straight away. We ordered the lasagna and the chicken pesto fettuccine. The food was fantastic. Good portion sizes and we didn't need to wait long. The service was more than we could have asked for. Friendly and attentive. Would definitely visit again next time we're in Gold Coast!

We arrived early as we are traveling with 4 young children. Seated straight away and served quickly. Checked on often. Garlic bread was some of the best I've had. Husbands steak was amazing, I had Balmain bug pasta and had so much bug meat. We will go back. Yummy

Very accomodating to our 3 children under7. Lovely, helpful friendly staff. The food tasted like real Italian food. The supreme specifically was how I remember pizza tasting not imitation cuisine. A wonderful easy-going experience.

We had our first night dinner there on last Monday during our visit. Very nice food, generous portions and customer service was exceptional. You will get 10% discount if you live near by hotel/apartment. If you stay in Surfers Paradise this is a must place you need to have your dinning.

We've been coming here (& over there before they moved) for as long as they've been in existence and has some fabulous meals and memorable nights with the owners. The family feel continues and we again enjoyed our meals. The tiramisu continues to be a stand out; pizza was great; spaghetti marinara exceptional.
