Poor food, worse service

We visited this restaurant with friends because the restaurant we wanted was closed. It turned out to be a good thing because we were all treated to delicious food. The smaller serving were more than adequate sizes for lunch and possible for a dinner. I couldn't fault the food and have to say that I haven't had such a good... More

The food here never fails to disappoint, always tasty and the service is excellent. This is my favourite restaurant on the north side of Brisbane.

Four of us across four generations were at lunch for a birthday treat. The restaurant catered for all of us really well, the antipasto plate was amazing. The only disappointment was when we booked it wasn't mentioned this was BYO. No big deal, but we then had to walk a way to pick up some wine - should have been... More

Always an awesome meal, huge portions, great service. BYO convenience. Seating outside has a great view of the Moreton Bay and Moreton Island. Staff are always friendly and attentive. A very popular Redcliffe restaurant.

Reasonably priced and very good quality Italian food. Booking recommended as it gets very busy. Can be a squeeze when busy.

The waitress was surly and unfriendly and we had to wait 45 minutes for our main courses. - pasta and a salad. My husband then stood in the queue to pay for the meal for... More
