This is a great little restaurant with wonderful home-cooked food and the house wine is great. Very good value for money. Small menu, but what's on it is fantastic. We had a lot of dishes and couldn't fault any of them. If you have a larger group, book the private room upstairs.

This place is warm and inviting giving the impression of big Sunday dinners at Nona's house. The eggplant dish is my favorite, but saying that I try and fit everything on the menu in. It is reasonably priced and the staff are lovely, you can even buy home made Olives and pickles to take home. My method is to take... More

Loved the authentic food and setting. Service was good too. The zeppole was awesome. Between 4 of us we ordered 2 primi, 4 secondi, and 2 contorni. There was more than enough food for all of us. All the dishes we ordered were excellent and authentic. Loved the Sicilian spritzers as well.

This little restaurant had a friendly, no-frills, homey feel to it. Our dinner group enjoyed the house wine along with great food. Prices are very reasonable and we were all fully fed when we left. Highly recommend!

I really hate writing negative reviews but our meal here was very disappointing. Entrees were nice & the cassata for dessert was nice too. But the mains were very ordinary as was the wine which was probably one of the more expensive on the menu list & at over $60 a bottle was overpriced & not particularly good. For a... More

Just called in for a quick 'after dinner' coffee and was very impressed with the friendly service. Looking forward to returning for dinner soon.

We had dinner here on Thursday 2/5. The room is small with high ceilings all painted white. It is an old shopfront in Lygon St with a veranda. There isn't much room inside and not much room between tables but this didn't seem to bother the friendly crowd inside. The wait staff were welcoming and charming, efficient but more like... More

Our second time in 12 months, and the experience was consistant. Its very, very good Sicilian food (definitely not your Lygon Street fare), but the restaurant can still improve in a couple of areas. The seating room at the front window is a great spot for a drink and nibbles, if thats what you are after. For a meal, try... More

Just go here. Seriously, it's excellent. I went with my husband and three friends to have a final meal together before we fly back to the UK and I'm so glad they took us to this place. It's very honest Sicilian cooking in a homely, shabby chic type environment but the dishes were anything but shabby. I pretty much loved... More
