Fantastic mid-week find

I was in the area for work this week, and found myself feeling a bit peckish long before I'd have the chance to head home for dinner. On a whim, I walked into this little Italian diner situated at the top of this residential street, surrounded by apartments and just up from Bridgewater Park... read more

It's great to find a restaurant of this calibre just around the corner from where we live. The food was great, the calamari starter and the tomato sauce with the mussels were the standouts. Oh, and the tiramisu was amazing. The wine list isn't huge but has some lovely drops on there. Above all the service was great. Really friendly... More

We were a group of 6 for lunch. Everything we ordered came out quickly, was fresh and utterly delicious. The zucchini flowers were particularly great as an entree. Only one waitress servicing the entire restaurant (about five tables full) and she made us feel welcome and looked after. Highly recommended :)

Been here a few times and it is consistently good. You wouldn't say it's the best Italian restaurant in Sydney, but I think it is one of the best restaurants in the Balmain area.

Lovely cozy restaurant backing onto the bay run in Rozelle. Very attentive service, in fact a little too attentive. Pizza's a little bland but not too bad. Reasonably priced for the area. Doubt we will return.

We love this place and go there at least once a month. Seafood pasta is deli. It has nice pieces of fresh seafood. We absolutely love the tiramisu and the pizzas are pretty good too.

We came to celebrate mothers day and the restaurant had a pleasant interior and plenty of polite and well trained waitresses on hand. The menu sounded good and there were a few good special dishes also. We went ahead and ordered a rosemary pizza and sizzling garlic prawns to share for entree. The shrimp came first and were plump moorish... More

We went as a group of 8 for a family lunch. We had the starters first (garlic bread and bruschettas) which were really big and yummy. Then we had to wait quite a while for the mains (more than 20 minutes) but it was fine, because you want to digest the food first. The mains were all excellent. The deserts... More

This little restaurant is tucked away in a quiet location in Rozelle and we found the whole lunch fantastic. Every meal we ordered from entrée to dessert was full of flavour and presented perfectly. The added character of the Italian staff added to a true Italian experience. The zucchini flowers stuffed with crab and prawns is really worth a try... More
