Fresh and fabulous without the frills!

It is all about the food in this tiny restaurant. Simon and Jas know their regulars by name and greet them warmly. This place is all about the food, not relying on fancy decor and wall trimmings to impress, just damn tasty Italian food. It is made fresh as you wait, including the pasta and Simon is... read more

We went there for dinner twice. The food was incredible. I had pasta the first night and steak the second. All the pasta is made there and the steak was the best I have ever tasted. If you are looking for a high class atmosphere this isn't the place for you, but if you love really good food and like... More

Service was excellent, the chef was really nice and didn't exaggerate when he said he made the best steak ever! It took 10-15 minutes for food to arrive. The only bad thing was that there weren't a lot of tables, so we were lucky to even get one! We loved talking to the chef, who couldn't believe that I wanted... More

Ok while visiting Lismore in June for a baseball tournament my wife happened upon this very small restaurant. She was smart enough to make a booking of one of the four tables. The experience was like meeting someone Kitchen. The chef/owner waiter was part of the excellent experience but the food was really fabulous one of the best restaurants and... More

Enthusiastic couple prepare a variety of tasty 'home cooked' Italian meals with enthusiasm and dedication. Friendly atmosphere. Only about 3 -4 small tables so booking may be necessary.

Really friendly staff who have done their homework and research on food. Seriously they have travelled, tasted and implemented. Their food is always incredibly tasty. I have had pasta for lunch and dinner. They have a great lunch pasta special for $10 which you can order to take-away and enjoy while at work or dine in. It's not rubbish packet... More

I expected so much more from this tiny little place. The service was bordering on too casual and familiar and take aways seem to be given preference to service at the 3 tables. In the end, the whole experience felt like a fairly good meal we could as easily have made at home. The pizza had potential - but we... More

Absolutely the best Italian food I have ever eaten outside of Italy. I ALWAYS make sure I visit when I'm in Lismore. The only issue I have had is when I booked a table and then they rang back and said they couldn't fit us in. I was pretty mad but with such a tiny space it would be hard... More

Delicious food, worth waiting for, prepared fresh in the open kitchen. Wonderful family atmosphere created by the owner/chef Simon and his wife - super friendly and entertaining. Lovely music playing with Andrea Bocelli, Sarah Brightman and Dean Martin with my husband joining in much to the delight of other diners! We were all singing along - one big happy family!... More

Fantastic authentic tasty Italian served up by a super friendly couple. We go there every time we're in Lismore. It's great when you chance upon a place and it's so good.
