“Some good, some not so good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

I felt this pasta dish was very ordinary. I was disappointed however my companion ordered chicken in a mustard sauce which he just loved. I ended up picking at his dish as it was alot better than mine.
Staff were busy. Decor is old but for a GOOD meal, I'll easily overlook it. However, I think this restaurant is just existing quite nicely until people do discover better.

“The WORST Italian food I have EVER eaten!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012 via mobile

WOULD HAVE GIVEN THEM A ZERO IF I COULD HAVE!

I could have done better at home with home brand dry pasta & jars of sauce.

It was gluggy & tasteless slop that I would expect from a first time attempt by a teenage boy cooking for the family.

We paid $65 for 5 dishes which we shared (like you would with Chinese food). We had the following:

Spaghetti bolognaise
Carbonara
Matriciana
Marinara
Ravioli

The pasta was ALL over done & the sauces all tasted like cheap jars from Woolies. Next time I'll stick with Latina because although it's not overly authentic, at least it's tasty & a hell of a lot cheaper than the crap they had the hide to slop onto plates at this hole!

“Dissapointing for a long established venue”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

A very popular restaurant, but we found the food uninspiring and bland.

“overpriced average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2011

Would not recommend and will not go back. Food very average and overpriced for what you get. Restaurant decor very outdated (from from seventies, not trying to look chic but original) vinyl chairs with rips, etc, not a good look or feel. Waited 45 mins for mains and it was not a busy night. The young wait staff were kind and friendly. The older woman was horrible, rude and very disinterested. So with very average food ( my husband ordered a chicken schnitzel with crab, mussels & prawns. The "crab" was not actual crab meat but tripe.) a long wait and rude service it made for a disappointing night out.
