“Best pizza I've had for a long time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

We have the chicken vege pizza and it was great. Loads of chicken and veggies. We grabbed take-away and enjoyed it on one of the many park benches looking at the water. Tops.

“Nice pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

Very busy little place. We ordered pizza takeaway it was a really good pizza. The wait was about 30mins which wasn't too bad considering how busy they were. We went next door to Lucifers for a drink while we waited.

“Great Italian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

Love going to this restaurant for a traditional home made meal. Love Franks Balls and his pasta dishes. Enjoy even more taking home his fresh cooked pizzas and enjoy them the following day, not soaking in oil, just beautiful. Great family owned business and the rare opportunity where the owner walks the floor and talks to everyone about their experience.

“Pathetic”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

We entered the restaurant and did not receive even so much as a hello. We then were abruptly told we could be seated until 7:30pm, it was currently 6:00pm. It was insinuated that our table request, without a booking, was a inconvenience for the elderly owner. Our entree was served and was delicious!!! That's where the enjoyment and excitement for the authentic appearing restaurant ended. The mains we were served were horrendous. Risotto was like utter mush and over powering garlic rendered the dish inedible. The pasta was packet pasta, for which we were charged nearly $30. For that price we all thought it would have to be homemade pasta!! The risotto was sent back, the waitress kindly said she'd let the chef know but offered NO replacement meal for my friend (who is a highly regarded chef herself) so she sat for the remainder of the dinner with nothing in front of her to eat. Another dish which was a seafood pasta, contained frozen seafood (considering the restaurant is situated ON A MARINA this is disgraceful!). With half eaten meals we headed to the counter to pay, after failing to be offered deserts or coffee, we asked for our bill which contained the full price dish of the risotto. The owner/manager then stated "apparently there was something wrong with a dish?"
My friend responded "yes, I couldn't eat it". He said "let's call it $100 even, which meant we still paid $7.00 for the dish!
We then left furious, and not even farewelled from the venue or offered any apology as my friend still had not eaten.
Go spend your money next door at little lucifers where we had breakfast the next day.
