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... read 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

Don't expect huge floor space, a concierge and marbled floors with fountains. Expect the kind of place that you would get in backstreet Naples or Milan. It is traditional and the food is great. Typical honest Italian food. The Prosciutto Pizza is out of this world. The host is memorable too. The menu is flexible as the owners buy fresh... 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.

It would be a great loss to visit Lismore without eating here. Food prepared fresh as you watch. The best pasta I can ever remember having. Light, tasty, amazing texture. And a wonderful personal touch!! Savoured every moment of my meal.

This bolt hole of an Italian restaurant served up some of the best Italian we have eaten anywhere in years. With barely enough room to swing a pasta bowl we rocked up on a Friday night and grabbed a table. The affable owner and his wife are dead serious about their food. We chatted to locals there who rave and... More

Dined at "Trattoria Pagotto" for the first time recently with friends, and agree with other reviewers, it was just like sitting around a large italian family table enjoying a meal together. You might say you go out to dinner to get out of the kitchen but this was so thoroughly enjoyable. The meals were beautiful and although the restaurant is... More

Owners are Italian, they cook from the heart and family recipes. Not a large restaurant, but warm, friendly and its like sitting at an Italian Family Table.

Lismore is blessed to have this small but excellent Italian restaurant.
