Fantastic Italian

The place was packed and that is obviously because of the food which was great. The usual selection of pizzas, pastas and seafood. Great friendly service and excellent value for money. Its BYO wine too.

I try desperately to order different dishes but I just cant seem to get past the pumpkin risotto mmmm. And I never leave without homemade Turkish delight (only 3 for $5 - big pieces too). Its, unfortunately for me, positioned right at the register and always calls to me when I pay hahaha

This restaurant began from humble beginnings and if you've been in the Redcliffe area a while, you will remember it first opened in a pokey little restaurant about 200m from where it is now about 10 years ago. I have visited the restaurant probably 15-20 times over the last 10 years and it's always a pleasure! Staff are lovely, food... More

A work mate recommended this place and it's been our favorite Italian restaurant ever since. We've taken many family (some Italian) and friends and they love it too, returning again and again. The menu will satisfy anyone with many options including gluten free pizza & pasta. Food is awesome, staff are excellent, location...beachfront. This place is affordable, friendly, award winning,...

For a restaurant voted no 1 in brisbane it certainly didnt live up to expectations. Gnocchi and pasta were average and pizzas small for the price. waiter was brilliant but the food let it down.
