Very plain flavours.

Service was great. We started with. A Margherita pizza which was wood fired and very nice. I then had a pasta dish with Wagu meatballs and while the meatballs were very nice the sauce was very bland and pasta under cooked. Also ordered was a Tortellini with mushroom and bacon in a cream sauce and... read more

We went here for dinner with some friends Lat night & I must say it was one of the worst dining experiences I've had in a long while! Firstly the wait for everything was ridiculous!!! 40 minute wait before they came anywhere near our table to take our order (we had to walk up to their counter not once but... More

Excellent! We arrived early at 5:30pm. Delicious Tortellini followed by Pizza di Mare. Service friendly and efficient. We love getting in early before the rush. Will go again.

We ate here tonight although we didn't eat so much as wait. We ordered our drinks and some bread to start and although the drinks turned up, they didn't bother doing my lemon lime and bitters, deciding that I should have lemonade alone. Half an hour later our bread arrived (after we reminded them) and they took our dinner order.... More

Personal service is great and the food is delicious. I love the traditional thin crust pizzas and the gnocchi is amazing. I've enjoyed everything I've ordered and keep coming back.

Everything was perfect from the moment we arrived. From the table by the window, attention to service and wonderful food. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals - polo ala tascano and veal gamberi - cooked to perfection, decent size and simple but tasty vegetables. The family study hospitality was appreciated and we felt at home. Thoroughly recommended!

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.
