Popped in for lunch on this sunny autumn day, left more than satisfied. $12 all day menu was good for the wallet and very tasty indeed. $14 Porterhouse steak was a big piece of meat. I'll pop in for dinner next time in around this part of time in the evening.

The space is a little cramped inside, but that was the only downside. The food was good and the portions were really large.. especially the kids meal. The service was decent. I would go back.

Went this evening for a meal out with friends. This was my first visit, but it won't be my last. We all ate off a "specials " menu. $12 to $14 with a big choice from pasta to steak. The desserts were good with great vanilla ice cream! The restaurant is clean and simple. The food fresh and tasty. Service... More

We liked the 2 outdoor seating areas available as well as inside dining. Great specials on the boards.... one board for each outdoor area, plus a more comprehensive menu available. Friendly service, food was lovely and minimal waiting time.

This restaurant is a nice Italian eat out that's no fuss. My partner and I head there frequently for an easy dinner. It's not the finest of dinning but it's also a place that we have never had a bad meal at. It's not expensive! It's a nice place to go for a night out with the family! It's our... More

Early dinner or late lunch? We didn't care because the fish and chips were cooked perfectly and the drinks were cold. Staff were attentive and we'd definitely go back when in Williamstown.

I've been many times but the quality has deteriorated. The atmosphere has become disappointing. It is expensive for what food is served... and when a restaurant has to order in dessert from a frozen Gelato dessert company, and the dessert is still somewhat frozen when served (the chocolate cake I ordered was still icy inside), it's just not on. It... More
