“Just average suburban Italian”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

It's just an urban Italian takeaway that has some tables available to dine in.

Sure the pizza bases are made in-house but for the rest I can whip up better at home in less time than it takes to phone in an order. It doesn't taste particularly fresh or authentic.

There's nothing wrong with the place and the prices are fair for the food and portion sizes. I just wouldn't go out of my way. It's the kind of place I'd use if I didn't feel like cooking and didn't feel like Chinese or Indian takeaway.

“A great local”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

This is a great little local restaurant. Its within walking distance of oxley train station (and my house - which is a bonus!). They are consistently good - tender veal or calamari, huge calzone, made-on-the-premises pizza bases, and tasty desserts. Look this isn't a 5 star Italian restaurant - its a great local eatery which serves reliably good food at a good price.

“Nice place to eat breakfast.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Been here twice now. Once for lunch and now for breakfast. On this occasion (Sunday breakfast), the meal I had was superb. I had sautéed garlic mushrooms on ciabatta. I have rarely eaten a nicer meal.

The staff were attentive and the prices very reasonable.

“An authenthic test with reasonable price.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

I read reviews of this small family restaurant in many foodie websites, it's so attractive with very high scored as one of best Italian restaurants in Brisbane. I passed by this place many time and found it is usually fulled even weeknight. Then one day, I went there with my friend on a tuesday night. It was full within an hour after the opening time.
For the food, pizza was great and the pasta was outstandingly terriffic. The ambience was nothing, it's just a place to eat. The service was not bad. I'd reccommended if you are around Oxley, Qld.
