“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

Starters were good with garlic bread, focaccia and bruschetta, however a sweet Prosecco not really good for 7AUD a glass. Mains had gnocchi all'arrabiata, spinach ricotta and chicken san remo. Chicken was good, for the gnocchi and raviolli the sauce was a killer. Too much, too heavy. After some bites you feel full. Certainly no balance. We got a good red Chianti for a good price. We finish ordering a really bad expresso with an awful after taste. On the positive side, staff was very kind and attentive and it was not that pricey. I have ate worse and paid more.

“Where the locals eat - best Italian on the Coast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012 via mobile

As a regular to this restaurant I can no longer keep the secret. This restaurant had a fire in the kitchen some time ago and now the two young brothers who own the place have reopened. I encourage anyone who is looking for friendly service, great food and moderately priced dining experience give this place a go, I don't think you will be disappointed

“Pleasant Surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

On a previous visit to Broadbeach we had been told this is the resturant that the locals use. Perhaps missing some of the pissaz of the upmarket restaurants in Broadbeach, this Italian restaurant was quite pleasant. It lacks any outlook however, the good service nice atmosphere and enjoyable meal made up for it.
Costs were very reasonable and cheaper than the main dining venues in the centre of Broadbeach. We will certainly revisit this establishment next time we are there. You can take your own wine which is always a plus.

“Intimate modern Italian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

After walking the streets of Broadbeach looking for inspiration and checking out the various Italian restaurants hawking for business, we stumbled on this new (newly renovated?) restaurant slightly off the main area. Beautiful food, charming service and modern feel. Although only open for 4 days at the time we visited, plenty of happy customers were there, including families. Would have loved to gone again but sadly the last day of our holiday. Easily the best meal we had.
