Only ended up here as we were desperate and could not get in anywhere else to feed the family. Wish we had gone anywhere else. Service of food takes forever. The food itself varies from average to terrible. In fairness the wait staff were trying hard, drinks orders were taken quickly and turned up quickly. I am not normally one... More

We had dinner one night here and the food was great. It appeals to couples and families with lots of variety to choose from. The staff were lovely and attentive and food came out quickly

I'm an Italian Aussie with 18 years of hospitality experience. I understand good traditional food and also when things can go wrong in a Restaurant and customers can be unfairly critical but this place deserves every negative thing said about it. Where do I start? The same guy everyone else mentioned was standing at the front encouraging us to come... More

My partner and I were after some gnocchi (well I was) and the man out front guaranteed it was home made, so we have it a shot. The waitress let me change the dish to suit my strange food tastes, and so we aired, not sure what we were going to get. After about 20 minutes, out they came... during... More

Food came out before the drinks, had to ask for our drinks again, food was ok but overall service was shameful. Asked for... More

Garbage. We went here last year and the service and food was atrocious. In a moment of insanity we thought we would try again this year. The service staff looked different so we thought they must have changed. The current staff obviously got the handbook from last year's staff. There was NO service once you are encouraged to sit. There... More
