“Fantastic food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2011

We had no idea what to expect and were very pleasantly surprised. The food was fantastic! We started with garlic forcaccia bread and salt & pepper quail. Yummo! For mains I had linguini marinara and hubby had pappardelle with crabmeat in a garlic and chilli white sauce. Mmmmm. Prior to dinner We had already agreed to have desert elsewhere but after having the meal and seeing the deserts come to other tables we decided to stay for desert too. Me: sweet polepetti, hubby: gelato and sorbet. Glad we stayed for desert! Yummo! Was an amazing meal.

“Nice food - but the service was slow”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2011

Its curious how a pricy restaurant with plenty of competition surrounding it can afford to have 4 wait staff lounging around the bar instead of tending to customers. We nearly walked out, after watching the ''boys'' have a laugh and a chat amongst themselves while we tried to attract their attention so we could order. If customers arrive at a restuarant before 7pm, chances are that they have made plans for afterwards: it won't hurt to give us prompt attention, and you get to sell the table again later on, after we've finished.

However the food was tasty, and the coffee was great.

“Expensive. Poor service. If they are...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2010

Expensive. Poor service. If they are trying to be Italian and sons, then lose the Greek influence.
