Convenient for a pre movie dinner

Came here before seeing a movie at the Hoyts cinema directly opposite. The food is quite nice, not outstanding but great if you want a convenient dinner before a bit of shopping or a movie. The pizza's are good and the menu has a large variety. Staff all very friendly and the venue is quite large... read more

We ordered the Atlantic Salmon and the Barramundi. They were both sensational! Staff looked really tired as it was very busy but still served with politeness and grace. Thank you for a lovely meal. We will be back!

Having been here numerous times over the years upon arrival you begin to realise quickly that this venue is tired. cake display with chalk writing on glass to the wooden tables and chairs to the menu and the staff who look equally as unimpressed and dull. Certainly a venue for a quick pizza and drink before a menu or something... More

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.

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!

went here as a family sat promptly. That is where the good things stopped.food orders and drinks had to be chased. While quality was okay for two of us I picked up gastro from the chicken. We had to chase a coffee and the bill it was like we were doing them a favour

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