Excellent food and service

We have been here every few months for last 5 years. The food is always beautiful and well made. Service is always excellent as is the wine list. This restaurant is a hidden gem in the west of Sydney. Keep it up team.

This is a popular place for work lunches as they food and service is outstanding. The seafood as well as pasta dishes never disappoint as they food is always very fresh. We were a large group and we shared multiple dishes: calamari fritti, zuchinni flowers; scallops, garlic prawns and then I had a main of seafood pasta. All excellent. For... More

First visit. Great atmosphere and beautiful restaurant. Food was outstanding. Our only complaint was service. Staff a little slow and disengaged. Will try again though and hope service next times matches up to their beautiful food.

We travel from the blue mountains to eat here regularly. I'm not sure what the 6 bad feedback persons are on, but obviously hard to please. I'm the worst person for bad service & food - so I would be the first one to "ban" a bad place.

This is not what i expected in Smithfield. The food was very good as was the service. There were a lot of people so quite noisy but it suits that atmosphere. Parking was reasonably easy. Portions a bit small but coffee was good to finish with.

Read some good reviews about this place the other day and decided to try it for lunch. Ordered some entrees, some of them were nice, some - like the mozzarella di bufala - never showed up. Got myself a mushroom risotto for main - the taste was not really that bad, but the texture was all mushy. Halfway through my... More

We knew the price of food is not like a family restaurant here, and true enough there weren't any other children beside our own on that Saturday night that we dine in here. We did not mind the small portion size of the dish (Pasta, Fish and pork) because we are not big eater and we wanted to try their... More

Amazing food and staff were very professional and courteous. We had reservations and they were very accomodating for late comers n late orders. There are 2 sittings, 6pm and 8pm. We were booked for the 6pm sitting but ended up staying there well into to the second sitting without anyone saying anything to us about finishing up. The food was... More

We did our nephew farewell in this restaurant and I cannot complaint about the food. It was delicious. Attention was good too. The only problem was that we brought our own cake to celebrate and serve with coffee or tea. We were charged for cutting and serving the cake.... $35 We learned our lesson.. next time we go home and... More
