Hello there,

Cheers on the short but sweet review and we do work hard to keep ahead of the competition. I am also glad that you chose to dine with us and that your faith in dining out has been restored.

As I have said before we strive to provide an environment that we would expect, when we head out to a restaurant, but sadly that's a tall order these days.

A quick thank you to all my staff that share the same values as I do, which lead to this and all our other great reviews. In saying this we are only human and do get it wrong sometimes but it is never intentional.

Happy dining :)

“Good Meal EXCELLENT SERVICE”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

From the phone call to book a table to the paying of my bill the service was excellent. Nothing was to much trouble and with half our party late (30mins) they were very understanding. The meals were very good and the garlic pizza was yummy. Pretty big serves. The price was a little on the high side with a parmi, chips and salad $27. The quality was good so didnt mind to much. The menu was huge with lots of choices. My next visit I will be trying the pasta. One of our group has pizza and said it was the best in Devonport. We will be back !!!

Hi Vicki,

Thanks for your great feedback and my staff always get a kick out of reading reviews. I am glad that you enjoyed the excellent service, as we pride ourselves on being a cut above our competition. We always strive to provide a dining experience like we would like when we dine out, but sometimes that is hard to find. I hear what your saying about the parmi but it's great you also noted that the quality outweighed the cost, as we also strive to buy the best possible produce. We look forward to your next visit and thank you once again.

Happy dining :)

“Good family restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

One thing I don't like in a restaurant is being squashed in.

This restaurant is very roomy, the service is great and the food is equally as good.

If you don't want a sit in meal they do take-away meals as well.

It is primarily an Italian cuisine as the name suggests but other style meals are available as well.

Their pizzas are excellent and the prices are reasonable as well.

Hi there guys,

Firstly, thank you for leaving your thoughts on this site, as we know how busy life can get so time becomes precious. I am glad that you mentioned that our place is very roomy, which is intentional. I try to adopt a dining environment that I would appreciate when I dine at another venue, but sadly those qualities are hard to find theses days. My pet hate is smaller eateries that do multiple sittings and want you to leave as soon as you're done. I believe that once you've sat at one of our many tables then it's yours until YOU want to leave.

Happy dining :)

Hi Matt & family,

Thanks for taking the time to put your thoughts on this site and we are glad you enjoyed your dining experience. I couldn't work out why we didn't get a perfect score from you when you used words like "Fantastic and Amazing" but maybe next time when you visit we can improve in your eyes.

Glad you enjoyed your Tassie adventure and I hope the sun burn from your snow trip has eased.

Happy dining :)

“Great food, great atmosphere, great service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We all (15 of us) had a superb night, with the best food and service experienced in a long time. Everyone was made to feel very welcome, and staff were very pleasant and willing. A fun night of dining and birthday celebrations. Extensive menu selection, even making it easy for the fussy eaters to choose.
