From the moment we arrived, we were greeted by a waitress that definitely didn't want to be working that day, that set the tone for the hole experience, then the owner came to take our order, and he was giving us big attitude as we did not order in the 5 seconds he allows per table. last but not least...

It was the second time at Il Casale Nobili and the service, food and atmosphere was exactly right for an early evening supper with two small children and three adults. Great salads and pizzas and byo makes this an affordable family restaurant. We will be back.!

Don't take any notice of the earlier reviews of the old owners. The new management have really made this place great. The decor is warm and very Italian and the food completes the picture. A great wine list (some made by the owner) complements the menu. We spent $45 per head for a great dinner.

Excellent Woodfired Pizza. I'm not from the area but I like to take my friends there all the time. They have a great menu so if you don't want your usual Pizza/Pasta, you will not be disappointed. They are always busy so you're better off to book ahead. Great host with a sense of humor. Great range of wine too... More

First timers at this establishment. Dined with a local and boy it didn't disappoint. The host was a scream, very efficient and knew his product well. Timing of the dishes was spot on and quality and quantity did not disappoint in the slightest. Would recommend for a fun night out as well as enjoying traditional Italian fare.

We were warmly welcomed by the owner and quickly shown to a table even though it was Friday night and we didn't have a booking. Pretty little place with glistening white tablecloths, candles, and fresh flowers. Service was awesome - I reached for the sparkling water bottle and before we knew it the owner was there pouring for us. Pizza's... More

We dines there early on a Saturday evening to celebrate my daughter's 9th birthday. Already the restaurant was buzzing. Plenty of staff to look after tables. Coloring-in place mats were brought immediately to the table for the children with crayons. Good kid's menu including the well-received Micky Mouse pizza and spaghetti with meat balls. We dropped off the birthday cake... More

It seems like no one really cares about food and service here. The food was very average and expensive, the wait staff rarely visit and when told the food was not to our satisfaction the result was indifference, or less. Maybe he quickly, and accurately, determined we would never return so what did it matter. Suburban Italian, but without redeeming... More

This place will take you to Rome and bring you back to Sydney. It's a small place ran by Italian nut case who's always swearing..typical Italian! Swearing and tomato sauce go hand in hand and the food is generous and tastes so good. Pizza is huge so make sure not to order too much.

Places like this really **ss me off. You book ahead, arrive on time but have to wait to be seated, then place your order. Now sit back and watch the next 5 tables who came in after you get served, eat, pay and leave before you meals arrive. Get it together folks!
