“A Great Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

We recently had the chance to return to our favourite Italian restaurant in Keri Keri with family and guests.
This restaurant has great food service, value for money, ambiance, nothing is to much for them (they even downloaded their music play list for us!)
Our guests who had never been there before had a great experience and will return again next time they are in the region.
The Owner and staff do a great job and we can not thank them enough for such a great night

“Great food, great atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013 via mobile

We really enjoyed this yet again. This time we took some locals and they enjoyed it so much they will be back. Have also spread the word about this great little restaurant and heard from others that they enjoyed it too. Cosy and with great service.

“Authentic Northern Italian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

We have been to many Italian restaurants since spending time in Northern Italy a few years ago but this place has outdone them all. The atmosphere, the noise, the smells and the many happy
diners brought back great memories. The very busy waiters were very good and friendly. The food was superb all produced to order in a very small kitchen.My wife asked if something could be left out of the dish she ordered and it came just as she wished. If we didn't live a couple of thousand kilometres away we would definitely be regulars
Molto bene Cesare

“Best meal ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

As title says.. tried the signature pasta dish 'just like momma used to make' - i wish it was my momma who made it when i was a boy becuase it was amazing! Resturant was very busy and the staff were clearly flat out but the service and flavour didnt falter one bit. I can see why so popular

“A Bit dissapointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

We didn't have a booking but we were promptly seated at spare table on the verandah so at this atge were impressed. However from then on service was very slow. We did allow for the fact that they were busy but a booked table of 5 who came in long after us got served first. My husband enjoyed his chicken dish but my pasta parcels which had been finished off in the oven were quite dry on top. However I was so hungry at this stage I ate them. We were not prepared to wait for coffee or dessert
