“Nice place to eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

This place overlooks the beach and has a good feel to it. We had the early bird which was very good and very reasonably priced. The staff were friendly and pleasant. I would suggest you give it a go if you are at Trinity Beach.

“Perfect food, service a little too fast though”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

As soon as we were seated, the owner came out to greet us and get our drinks order. Thats fine, I expect that. But no longer had we ordered our entree ( which was amazing) and it was on the table. I hadnt finished my entree and main course was served. The waitress stood there with my main course in her hand and waited for me to finish my entree. Not cool!! The food is perfectly traditional Italian, thin crust pizza, delicious pasta. I have travelled to Italy twice and have struggled to find similar food here.... until I ate here. Stunning view of the beach. If I can give one tip to them... slow down your service. People eat out to catch up with friends or family. Most of which are on holidays, we want to take our time. I was having dinner with my best friend who I hadnt seen for 5 years. We could have sat there all night, but felt quite rushed to leave. Great food. but service let you down a little. Just a bit over the top. Wont stop me going back for your spag and meatballs!!

“Rude staff”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

I stopped in here to get a menu to see if we would eat here one night. I walked in (to a very empty place) and said 'Hi, could I please have a menu', to which I got a very rude waiter who just grunted at me, barely looked up and pointed past him to where the menu's were (barely visible too).
I grabbed one and walked out. With that attitude, we were not going to eat there that night.
I looked over the menu and wasn't happy with the variety or the prices.

“A little disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Maybe we selected unwisely from the menu ... BUT we were both disappointed with our meals. I had a special pizza and this manifested itself as a wild mish-mash of far too many ingredients that looked quite unappetising and tasted very ordinary. In particular, the chef's extravagance with packaged bacon ? / ham ? pre-cut into little slithers drowned the other toppings and the pizza base which was certainly nothing special. My partner opted for one of the daily specials of a slow cooked lamb concoction which was sludgy and unappetising with no stand out flavours or textures. We were disappointed and as locals to the area we will be looking further afield next time we decide to eat out at the northern beaches.

“Great Calamari”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

This is a quiet little Italian restaurant right on the water. It is a totally laid back, beach experience with really friendly service, The calamari is excellent, as is the tomato prawn soup, meatballs and spaghetti and the barramundi special. The pizza was also good. I really liked the local feel of it.
