Not the dinner that I was expecting. The bruschetta I ordered was way too salty. I ordered the gnocchi and it came out undercooked. So I left not having really had any dinner. My partners food wasn't too bad, not great either though. My advice, go somewhere else

The owner chef is truely talented in every respect. The menu selection, the meal preparation and the beautiful presentation. The table setting, the choice of wine glasses. The wine list at more than reasonable prices. The beautiful selection of background music that adds to to overall Fine dining experience. A special thank you to our waiter Lara, who was so... More

Ate here last week and was pretty disappointed, food was very average. It was a hot night and there was no cold water! Just room temperature, not very pleasant. Just ate quickly and left. Wouldn't recommend it!

Slightly disappointing. The Angus steak was a bit tough and the vegetables were nothing special. The wine was excellent and good value. The service was beyond reproach. Maybe try something different if we ever come back.

Our meals were delicious! My husband said that he had the best steak he has ever had, and that is saying something! The service was spot on; we didn't have to wait too long for our entree and then main meals, our waitress very attentive, professional and pleasant.

Hit one of those evenings when 1st choice was booked out and 2nd choice was booked out, so random choice, hey let's try that place I've walked past a hundred times. And yep, it did not disappoint. Service somewhat inexperienced but very willing and genuine. Simple food, very competently prepared, not a bum note here, and reasonably priced. The wine... More

The only downer about this quaint little restaurant was the lack of customers. This can sometimes be a put off to going into a restaurant....The food was excellent, classic menu, great value. Would highly recommend.

This was a lucky find and on the night we visited there were only three other customers. This,I don't understand. The food is very good with a limited menu but with something from each Italian food type and not over priced. Restaurant is licensed and the wine list is definitely worth a look.(We found a great 2008 McLaren Vale Grenache... More
