Favourite Italian in the area

This is my favourite Italian in my local area. Always buzzing with people all weekend so remember to book. I chose the tomato bruschetta instead of an entree. Very happy with that. My partner had the scallops wrapped in bacon and served on rice. He said it was delicious. I then had the Balmain Bugs... read more

Been here many times with family, and with large groups. Food is always excellent, Italian food with lots of choice. This time I had the duck and the rest of the family had pasta with prawns, and we shared a salad. Everyone enjoyed their meals, generous portions and the service was really very good, very friendly staff.

We had a very pleasant meal here with a group of friends, with great, but unobtrusive service. The menu was quite extensive, Italian based, and we all ordered different meals. No one was disappointed and each of the entrees, mains and desserts was perfect. The challenge was to save room for the desserts - the tiramisu was to die for,... More

Visiting family in Randwick from UK. My partner and I have been here 3x in 2 weeks and the food and service have been excellent. The steak is to die for and the prawn starter is amazing. All of the staff are very friendly and the service has been great.

We were not sure what o have whilst in Randwick and after walking up and down the street, decided to try this Italian restaurant. Seated quickly and placed our order as soon as we could before the dinner rush. Love the spaghetti marina and the others were pretty good. Value for money. However, if you are short of time, definitely... More
