Sounds better than it is

Take your glasses if you struggle with small fonts and poor lighting. The service was extremely friendly, the food let it down. Good sounding food but poorly executed. Bland to be honest and lacks actual culinary talent. Good Italian in this era is easily done with the amount of excellent produce... read more

Take your glasses if you struggle with small fonts and poor lighting. The service was extremely friendly, the food let it down. Good sounding food but poorly executed. Bland to be honest and lacks actual culinary talent. Good Italian in this era is easily done with the amount of excellent produce around, it just takes some talent and love. Please... More

I think this restaurant needs to jack up its ideas. My meal was pretty poor, my partners was slightly better. After entries, we were asked if we wanted desert. We said we were waiting for our mains and that we would like more drinks. The drinks never arrived, the mains took a while to arrive which was ok because the... More

Well I thought of only giving this place four stars as the tiramisu is a disappointment and unchanged dice I last dined here two years ago. However everything else was excellent so I let it go. Love the beer on tap too.

We visit Byron frequently and our friends said the Italian at the pacific is good! I have to strongly disagree! My main the Veal tenderloin was tough small in portion and lacked taste. The wait staff / service was dire! When asked how is your meal I commented "average at best" she said great and walked off. We were left... More

This restaurant is definitely worth a visit. Service was attentive, food was excellent. The standout dish was the penne with beef cheeks and truffled cream sauce...I would've licked the plate if I could!

The restaurant has a great ambience and friendly staff. I chose the beef risotto which was ok but personally I was a bit disappointed with it. Other members of my party had the braised beef and thought it excellent. I thought the restaurant was punching above its weight with its pricing, It was too expensive. There are better options in...

We had a lovely dinner here. Delicious entrees - we shared the arancini and pate platter between the four of us. Good pasta/mains - the spaghetti con funghi was especially good and the pesce del giorno (seafood bisque) was excellent. Finished off with some memorable desserts - chocolate fondant was luscious, tiramisu was extremely satisfying and the white chocolate brûlée... More

Went to the Italian for a birthday celebration. As it was school holiday time the place was fairly busy, lots more tourists in town. We were seated near the door and although there was a heater overhead every time a wait person went in and out to the outside seating area there was a cold draught. After awhile this became... More

Had delicious meal and very quick but attentive service. Was very busy -Saturday night - but were well taken care of. Bit more expensive than other places - on sea front - but well worth the extra expense. Make sure you seek it out.

excellent food, great service, nice wines, specials- very enjoyable meal. Décor and layout somewhat average, but otherwise a cut above all others in this area
