Great food but service could be better

This place serves great Italian food. Sometimes it's confusing where to order what. It also takes time and is not comfortable to order different product in different places pizza one place. Antipasti second place. Drinks third place. For the price they charge they should have a table service.

Beautiful - great concept of giving your order and watching the chef 'interactive' ordering. Individualised orders. Love!!!! the decor, funky comfortable and friendly for all ages. Loved the mini gardens & bag hooks at tables - brilliant food decor & service !

I or my table did not like the idea of lining up and then waiting around for our food to arrive, then walking back to the table. it definitely broke up our conversations, and I felt we waited way to long to get our food.

We came here on the 1st night of our holiday looking for a nice meal with good service. When we arrived we were given 2 cards which we were to use for all our purchases. You need to find your own table, go to the bar yourself, then queue up for whatever food you want, with separate lines for pizza,... More

This concept obviously works well for family groups looking for a cheaper nights meal and I am pleased I tried the concept, but never again! I hate queuing for food. I had tried to book a table (but they only take groups of 10 or more for bookings) and asked the girl how busy would it be at 6:30pm (Saturday... More

Excellent meal, very fresh, great wine, and even better atmosphere. Reasonably priced and well located. We were fortunate to get a window seat and enjoyed watching the performers in Cavill Ave mall. Tables have fresh-potted herbs, olive oil and balsamic vinegar. The lighting is "moody" - candles or lamps on the tables; most have stools but there are a few... More
