I visited on a Friday night with friends. Even though we booked a table earlier that day, they lost our reservation. They said that they could squeeze us in. I ordered a chicken burger and for some reason the bread was soggy before I even got to eating it. Besides the initial comment the staff were... read more

We have been to Balsamic on a number of occasions and have never been disappointed with the food nor the service. It is a large restaurant so plenty of room for larger groups, office lunches etc. Try the wood-fired pizza!

The rudeness of the waitstaff at this establishment is appalling. Great menu change, it would be great if the attitudes would change with it.

We have been to this restaurant in the Eastland Shopping Centre a few times in the past, particularly before or after a movie. It can be noisy and reminds us more of a cafeteria style with its open plan and dated décor. We found this time that the food was OK but have been disappointed on previous occasions. This time,...
