Amazing seafood and pasta

Loved the atmosphere here. Staff were very attentive and service great. We had the arancini balls and bruschetta for shared starter. Both were delicious. The snapper and barramundi were so fresh and the flavours delicate.

Food was well presented, and tasty. My only criticism would be that the dishes that came out were not what myself (or members of my group) would've expected based on the menu. Not that that is always a bad thing, just different. The portion sizes also seemed inconsistent between dishes. Staff were polite and generally I enjoyed the taste of... More

My husband treated me to a meal here for my 30th birthday whilst we were on honeymoon in Australia. By far this was one of the best meals of our trip, if not one of the best meals we've ever had. We had a lovely, friendly waitress who was very helpful. The cocktails were also amazing. Would highly recommend this... More

I was very skeptical of this place being attached to the Beach Hotel- but it's got a completely different vibe and you cannot hear any music or crowds from next door. The food is a bit pricey, but that's to be expected in the middle of Byron. Everyone was really happy with their order- the stand out was the slow... More

As dinner experiences go, IatP would be in our top three for Byron Bay. So much so, we dined there three times during our 2-week stay. The food is frankly, awesome. The Good: - Any of the pasta's (especially the Ravioli) - Snapper. OMG, amazing - They take bookings (so many Byron places don't) - Tiramisu and coffee - Outdoor... More

My husband and I had Christmas Dinner at the Italian and where blown away by the lovely setting. I had been following them on Instagram for a few weeks prior to the day and it certainly lived up to the pictures I had seen. The oysters, starters and mains were delicious and we managed to try about 6 cocktails between... More

Had dinner for four. Reservations in peak season is a must! Drinks: margarita, two sours, a beer, glass of wine - all brought in no time. Food: simply excellent, I have nothing to complain. 12-hour-braised beef cheek was fabulous, so was the barramundi and the pasta. Service was very attentive, although constantly changing - one took our order for drinks,... More

Though a bit on the pricey side, this felt like decent value as the food and drinks were all delicious. There is a good range of cocktails to go with some shared starters. My brother raved about the lasagne and my goat cheese ravioli was fantastic.

We had good food here, but it was a little expensive and I didn't think there was a huge choice on the menu. That said, what we did eat was really good and I would definitely go back.
