“Typical Italian experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013 via mobile

This place will take you to Rome and bring you back to Sydney. It's a small place ran by Italian nut case who's always swearing..typical Italian! Swearing and tomato sauce go hand in hand and the food is generous and tastes so good. Pizza is huge so make sure not to order too much.

“Bypass Il Casale”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

Places like this really **ss me off. You book ahead, arrive on time but have to wait to be seated, then place your order. Now sit back and watch the next 5 tables who came in after you get served, eat, pay and leave before you meals arrive.
Get it together folks!

“Best ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013 via mobile

I can't rave enough about the service and quality of food. All three of us had the best meal ever We even took our own wine which the waiter displayed his skills at uncorking and presenting for tasting. These guys knew their food and their wine. Very impressive for very relaxed restaurant. 3 people $112 great night out. Place was busy and has been busy every time we have gone past. I can see why it is now popular. Great food, great service, great atmosphere and very reasonable price. Shhhhhh don't tell others as they will all want to come. Perfecto Il Casale 10 out of 10 in my books but make sure you have plenty of Tiramisu for me next time.

“Need to get the service right”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

This restaurant changed ownership earlier this year and has smartened up. It has kept a similar menu and decor.

We were disappointed by aspects of the service on a busy Saturday night. Our table of 6 ordered pasta and pizzas. One pizza did not arrive until most of us had finished eating with two guests left waiting. The other pizza was not sliced up requiring another request to the wait staff.

The food is good but the staff need to get the basics right
