“Great food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

This is a lovely restaurant..... Great food and cocktails .
A little expensive for Byron bay and my fish dish was quite small for a $34 main course so make sure you order side dishes.
My friend had the penna pasta which was amazing and a much larger meal.
Would definately recommend if you love Italian food.

“Great spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

This is right next to the pub and was busy when we visited. The arancini balls were fantastic. We both had lasagna and it was ok but I think other items on the menu could be far better to try. Great cocktails.

“Great service but you call that a lasagne?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

By Byron standards this is a bit expensive. Having said that our Ragu pasta was good and the service was excellent.
But that is where it ends.
I went with my wife and 10 year old son. This place does not cater well for kids so be warned.
No kids menu was offered so we went for what we thought was the safe option of lasagne.
You know the one; a meat sauce with a layer of pasta sheet followed by white sauce, more meat sause, pasta etc.
Well apparently this restaurant knows better and serves lasagne in a smallish bowl which consists of casseroled beef cheeks and a crusted cheese topping.
Very ordinary for a 10 year old I have to tell you and there was no explanation on the menu or from the waiter.
