Back to Basics

I had a great meal with friends here. It is certainly back to basics with laminex tables and an old menu on the wall that looked like it had been there forever. While there was nothing fancy about this place it provided no nonsense food and plenty of atmosphere.

I get that it's a no frills restaurant ...service was quick and dismissive...glasses similar to Vegemite jars,but an Italian themed restaurant who doesn't know how to make a minestrone soup?frozen mixed veggies doesn't count....and very pricey...it didn't open until 6 so we went over the road to a cute little bar/cafe for a coffee before we ate...regret not staying there

Don't come expecting fancy decor. It is a very simple affair here- hearty Italian home style food in a retro decor. We had the Gorgonzola gnocchi and spaghetti and the sole looked great as well. Dessert is adequate. Quite busy, so do book ahead or one early. It is up a narrow staircase next to 20 Meyers Place.

If you are looking for beautiful decor and no noise then this is not for you. Its very narrow and small with mismatching furniture and walls that need painting. It is very hard to hear conversations over everyone's chatter in such a confined space. The food is not really cheap but the serves are rather generous and the taste very... More

A packed restaurant suggested the food was good. And it is great. Seafood marinara was excellent. Service is manic and it's obvious they want you out asap. It's only small so turnover of tables is important but if you are looking to relax over the meal go elsewhere. For a fast and tasty meal though it is ideal.

Generous serves, but uninspired flavours, pesto very disappointing. An old favourite that is perhaps past its best, but still has friendly service. Unfortunately we won't be in a hurry to return.

Quite basic and not a real easy place to find. I have been here several times and I have tried different dishs. It is certainly aimed at the lower end of the market but overall it is not bad value.

To begin... the waiters who attended to us was sooooooooooo rude!!!!!! She surely could have put us on a table for 4 people even there were only the two of us (being regular customers) because we aren't going to be there for hours!!!!!! To make the situation worse, they could put one of their regular customer - yes, ONE person... More
