We had lunch here and ate inside as the waitress recommended that it was a little cooler. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and the service excellent. We had a Seafood Platter which was enough for two and included Moreton Bay bugs which we had never had before but they were very tasty. We were impressed with this restaurant... More

If elevator music is the normal food for Caloundra then your taste buds will be delighted by the rare hidden gem of La Dolce Vita Italian Restaurant in Caloundra. We have been visiting Caloundra for over 8 years and have struggled to find half decent Italian - often opting for the Music Hall avergeness of Amici. Literally we cannot believe... More

Booked a table of ten for new years dinner. Hot night, there was no air conditioning on and temperatures were easily over 40 degrees inside. Customers were Walking out with their dress shirts saturated. Staff were So unwelcoming and very rude! The Italian man working there, I assume the manager, was the rudest host I have ever met and his... More

So it was New Years eve and we had 12 people attending. We were aware it was a BYO and when we asked how much corkage was, we were told $8 per bottle. This sounded reasonable, however no ice buckets were provided in fact a small bowel with a few pieces of ice x 2 were provided. So once the... More

I took the family here on Christmas Eve to celebrate my husband's birthday. The restaurant were kind enough to make the effort to sprinkle some birthday decorations on the table which was a special touch. We had a table outside which is a lovely setting looking over the main Bulcock Beach. There were seven of us, and everyone was happy... More

We ate at Moos for dinner. We ordered Garlic Ciabatta to start. It arrived quickly and was a perfect accompaniment to our Sauv Blanc. I ordered grilled Moreton Bay Bugs on risotto with garlic cream sauce for a main. It arrived with 5 bug tails and on a bed of aromatic lemon risotto. The risotto was creamy and firm with... More

Thought we'd try Caloundra for some Italian and discovered this little gem. Owned and operated by a true Italian, and the food shows it! Next best thing to Maroochydore's "Cala Luna" for authentic Italian.
