“Not very friendly”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

We went to Lambrusco's last Saturday night. As we arrived to join friends who were already at the table one painting fell off the wall creating a domino effect so that all the paintings on the wall came crashing down. Rather than apologising the owner gave us a dirty scowl like it was our fault. The proprietor should try to be a little more friendly and ensure that items hanging on the wall are properly fixed to the wall so that they don't endanger the patrons.

Food was tasty but presentation was slap dash

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

This is the restuarant where you can get authentic Italian cuisine, the food is excellent the parking is just outside the restuarant and you should book for weekends. It's a hidden gem and tucked away in a small shopping centre but well worth the effort in finding it.
