Known for a taste sensation and romantic dinning experience that's what you expect and pay for here. Failed on this occasion. Our waitress could hardly speak English making it very difficult to order. We had a steak and pasta, both we felt could have done better at home. An expensive disappointing experience. Our last time.

Overpriced, slightly burnt food only worsened by the extreme amount of time to receive the food and obvious faked accent by some of the staff. Tried a variety of their food and the taste lacked

Booked in for dinner the service was great it was very busy the wait staff were informative the service was very good. We shared a couple of pizzas the gluten free pizza house made base was exceptional, the the wood fired pizza was very good. I ordered the 250g short rib. The polenta was good the beef was very tough.... More

Shared 2 entrees and a pizza, maybe the best arancini ever. Authentic Italian done well. Service there but not over the top, nice atmosphere and fire. Would come again.

We ventured here for dinner as a group of 4. Firstly the location is great and it has very stylish decor. The staff are lovely....welcoming, friendly and professional. We all agreed it is quite overpriced and for Italian style could be more reasonably priced. Firstly our wines were $10 and $11 for a very small glass...I realise there are measured... More

just to respond to your comment about the small amount of wine in the glass - our glasses actually hold 500ml - they are large by comparison to other restaurants, and on the menu it is clearly stated that the measurement is 150ml - or 1.5 standard drinks by the RSA guidelines...we could use smaller ( and less stylish glasses)...

Fiasco is a beautiful little restaurant, has great atmosphere and excellent service and lovely food BUT all this is ruined by the exorbitant pricing of their meals and wines. To pay $11 for a glass of white wine is over the top but when that glass is served and it's in a standard wine glass that's only a third full... More

Thanks for your review Rhommy - and I wish to respond if I may... our wine glasses are the Spiegelau - it is not the standard wine glass used by most of the industry - the one we use for service actually holds 500ml when full so if you are getting a 1/3 full then you are getting more than... More

When my colleague and i entered the place was warm and friendly. As soon as we sat we were forgotten. We were sitting directly in front of the bar service area so it was hard to miss us. We both ordered the Gnocchi and a glass of wine. The wine took forever to come. I thought they were crushing the... More

The venue was lovely, as was the service. However, the price was exorbitant and the meals rather modest. I could not believe how much it cost us two have an entree and main with one glass of wine.
