“Can't believe I have waited so long”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

I have been visiting Port Douglas for many years and have always walked past this restaurant as it is always busy and somewhat crowded. This time (October 2013) I booked a table for 4 and was very surprised and impressed. The food was excellent - top Italian home style cooking, rich with flavors and excellent presentation. Staff and general service far better than some other restaurants in the area. Reasonable prices. Good wine list. Recommend a visit. Make a booking.

“Disappointing dinner”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

We assumed that having had good dining experiences here many times that when we brought a group of our close friends together it would be an enjoyable experience. Poorly made cocktails, average food and slow service dampened our spirits. The manager apologised profusely and removed offending items from the bill.

“A taste sensation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

The food is at a really high quality as is the service. You don't expect this in a small town. Make sure you book beforehand as this place is very popular.

“Very popular”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

We were greeted by a lovely Italian man who took great care to ensure professionalism from his staff throughout our experience. The food was very tasty and unique, offering something a little more fancy than some other places in Port Douglas. It was perhaps a little on the expensive side and was very popular making it almost too busy. We enjoyed the experience.
