“good casual restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

We had not heard of this restaurant before and decided to give it a try. The atmosphere is lively, food in good quantity although I would not quite classify as "Italian" it is Brazilian-Italian fusion and more suitable for large appetites rather than discerning eaters. Having said this though it would be a great place for a crowd to meet and have a fun evening.

“Value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013 via mobile

Me and my girlfriend stumbled on this place last week when we were trying to find a place to eat in coogee. We weren't to sure as to what it was but it was great!! The food was very tasty. The price is great, $35 all you can eat!! And the place itself has a great feel and atmosphere. You might have to share a table with others but its definitely worth it!

“Fantastic!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

We have been living in Coogee for 8 years, have seen a few restaurants come and go but like A Fish called Coogee and Churrasco this one is a winner..
The food was absolutely beautiful - home made ravioli - pastas - pizzas - all top quality.. Eat as much or as little as you like.. take a spoonful or take the whole dish. Worth every penny - great service and ambiance.. We will be back, again and again and again!
Viva la Fahrina!

“A not so quiet little gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

A new addition to the Coogee strip but it feels like it could have been there for as long as any of the others. Pasta is so fresh, pizza was excellent, the beef was sublime and the service was so friendly.
