The resaraunt does not look as good from the road, driving past, but we read some postive reviews and made a booking. We had a very pleasant night seated on a veranda, by big pond next to the vines and the food, wine and service were all excellent.

We were here for a dinner. Food was ok. (not exactly Italyian, inspired Italyan) Service was so slow that we had to wait for a while after we orded drinks and had to waive them to let them know we needed them! But the atmosphere was great at outside table.

I recently had take away from this restaurant and found it to be great value and the food was excellent. This is a great option if you don't want to get dressed up for dinner or if you prefer to dine at where you are staying, as we did. The customer service from the staff was excellent as well.

This restaurant is on site at the Hermitage Lodge, reviewed separately. We had a gluten free garlic and Parmesan starter with a magnificent beef carpaccio to share. That beef, with it's mushroom and macadamia salsa was awesome. Great produce and great taste. The gluten free garlic bread wasn't bad either! For mains, I had the crispy skinned salmon and the...

A friend and I stumbled across this restaurant whilst on a girls weekend and we were glad we did. It is quite possibly the best pasta either of us have had. Do yourself a favour and order the chicken boscaiola fettuccine based on my experience you shouldn't be disappointed.

This restaurant has been here for quiete a number of years - which given the competition in this area is a very good sign. We had the tortellini with prawns and crab and it was delightful.

Sorry to say this, but on the evening we went, it was obvious this wasn't a fresh pasta dish. Admittedly, we did go there mid week, but we expected better. Still though, staff were very pleasant so the whole experience wasn't that bad, just don't think I would go back.

We came in a busy night and the place was super packed. Good thing there were the four of us so we kept each other entertained while we waited for all of our orders. The selection of food on the menu was nothing particularly different than any Italian trattorias but everything was done superbly. Being in this region, the wine... More
