“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Birthday dinner for daughter, 12 family in the group. Been to Pellegrini's a dozen or more times and always walked away satisfied,it just didn't seem a happy night for all behind the scenes and it was replicated in the food .Everyone was just a little disappointed, portions were great, quality ok, no one hated their meal, it was just a little off. I'll be back, just a bad night, normally this place is ultra reliable, maybe a change in the menu it's been the same for a while or some weekly specials to change it up a notch.

“Friendly traditional Italian Trattoria in Oxley”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

I was thrilled when this restaurant opened because I'd really been missing having a local Italian place available. I used to live in London which is sprinkled with 'Trats' so if you wanted a good Italian meal, you didn't have far to go. It's been different in Brisbane as the Italian community here isn't so big. This is a family run restaurant. They are really kind, friendly and child tolerant (very important when you need to bring them along or not go out). Prices are reasonable. I wish they were open for lunch as well, but I expect there just isn't enough passing trade at this time of day. Something on the menu of pastas, gourmet pizzas and other traditional Italian dishes to please everyone. It is true that it is a pretty tiny restaurant so booking ahead is good idea.

“Decent unassuming Italian restaurant in suburban Oxley”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

If you are searching for good italian food that is reasonably priced and a low-key atmosphere you could do well to visit Pellegrini in suburban Oxley.

For a night out with friends it suited our requirements admirably. It's not overly large, so booking would probably be advisable.

It's a BYO but is conveniently located next to a BWS so that shouldn't present a problem.
