Italian in Randwick

We went out to dinner here - four of us and could not fault the night. Our waiter was very friendly and met our needs well. We were seated outside (at our request) and I think this gave us an avenue to receive better service, as we were the on,y ones outside. Food was delicious. Rate this place and... read more

These guys have been around for a long time for good reason - they create a warm, homely atmosphere and never fail to serve delicious food at a reasonable price. So many restaurants to choose at The Spot but this one is a stand out.

My family and I recently dined at this restaurant for dinner. We were all extremely happy with the food, drinks, service, price and atmosphere. We hadn't planned on eating at this restaurant we just happened to find it randomly. Very glad that we did and we will definitely be returning if in the area in the future.

I visited this restaurant before heading to the movies. I dined with one other and we each had a beer to start with Garlic Bread, a Salad, and a massive bowl of Pasta plus we shared a bottle of wine all for $50 each including tip. The food was very yummy and a very generous serving of pasta. Would highly... More

The place was pretty and spacious. It's a little bit expensive but it's probably a good choice for when you want to enjoy dinner/lunch in a nice restaurant ambient. The food may not be particularly amazing but it was good. Specious dining area is good for groups, too.

Service is really awful in this place, waiting well over 1.5 hours for meals and the wrong dishes coming to us time and time again! We gave this place the benefit of the doubt recently but won't be returning. A real disappointment!

Have been going here for years, great selection of food to suit all tastes- even the kids. Always fresh and delicious, great value and even worth staying for dessert the chocolate mousse is to die for!

A friend and I went for dinner on Saturday night after seeing a movie. It was very busy and we had to wait for a few minutes for a table in the corner which was not a problem. We had to flag a waitress down after sitting unattended for at least 10 minutes. After we finally ordered it took at... More

Went out for an anniversary dinner and it was really good. I got the prime rib of beef which was great I asked for medium rare but should have gone for a medium, it was a little too bloody for me. My partner had the chicken with bacon cheese and tomato was amazing i wanted more! Dessert was great but... More

Decided at the last minute to have dinner on a Sunday night (Mothers Day) and were lucky enough to get a table for 8pm. The restaurant was very busy but we were seated as soon as we walked in the door. Bruschetta for entree was fresh and delicious. I had rump steak with vegetables for the main, they were both...
