Wood-fired Pizza specialty, excellent service but droll waiter needs a wake-up

This upmarket restaurant in the Coogee Bay Road strip is well worth a visit. We shared a superb wood-fired pizza carefully prepared and salad late 2015 and can't speak highly enough about service, food quality and attention to detail. Highly recommended. However, when we returned recently on a... read more

We sat out the fron on the street in a southerly buster and still it was a great dinner! The northern Italian waiter was a scream and gave us great suggestions for aperitifs, wines and food. It all blended very well. The seafood casserole, a waiter recommendation, which we shared after primos and secondi was delightful.

We had a great night with excellent menu options and wine. The service was affable and made our night out a more genuine italian experience. All in all a great night out in Coogee.

I was with a group of colleagues and we shared salad entrees and had our own mains. I had the mushroom/asparagus risotto which was very creamy, it was really nice. The serving was large and I couldn't finish it all but at least I can't say the servings were stingy. One of our group was gluten-free so they had a... More

It seemed that most of the staff were Italian which helped create the genuine Italian feel from the beginning. They handled my requests for no cheese with good humour, but made sure that no cheese came anywhere near my dishes. The service was friendly and professional without being snobby. I had the spaghetti bolognese (boring, I know) which had a... More

Ordered a seafood pasta. Service was really good. Pasta came out in a blink of an eye. Maybe they are trying to plough through as many people as possible? No big deal. My pasta however was stuck together. Looks like a microwave effort. How else would it come out so fast and all clumped together? Considering the fine dining price... More

I had the penne pork meatballs, sauce was tasteless and the dish was very bland. I could have had a nicer pasta out of a jar. My wife had the marina and she said the seafood was frozen. Service and location was great, food terrible.
