Delicious!

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.

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

Went to the Italian on the suggestion from a local and was not disappointed! Killer espresso martinis. Suggestion: Try all of the entrees. I'm usually not a fan of oysters but they were a favourite. Plus the prawns and don't leave without trying the chocolate fondant. Staff also made you feel very welcome

We had a lovely dinner at this restaurant. A quiet place, pleasant staff and very friendly service.Good specials but main menu had lots of variety.May need to book as we were there in a quieter season just before school holidays begin.

It was a pleasure to eat here. We had a smallish dinner of 1 entree and 1 pasta as mains to share. Both dishes delicious. Also had a dessert plus a small chocolate taster plate with our coffees and both items were superb. Service was excellent, prices not cheap but food quality to match. Highly recommend 😀
