Amazing food, tasting, big enough & good value. Plates were well design and full of details. We had Gnocchi 4 cheese and scaloppine as main plate. Service was friendly & professional.

This is alongside a number of restaurants with outside seating. The food is very average. It is not bad but it is not great. The price I think is more than it deserves. I ate fish which I think was either frozen and then cooked or just overcooked. My partner's dish was good. The service was reasonable, not great. There... More

I ordered the Lasagne which arrived at the table piping hot and a very generous serve. There was a dish of grated Parmesan on the table which was great because I didn't have to ask the waitress for some. My son in law ordered an entree of Penne in pink sauce, bacon,chilli, capsicum & onion with a vodka flambé which... More

Excellent service and they had a divine gluten free penne which can have any sauce added. The wheat eaters also enjoyed their flavour some meals. About $20 per plate

I was at La Fett last night again, and had a wonderful evening with family and friends. Breads were shared as an entrée,with the garlic bread the freshest most soft I've ever had.The Mare Monti,Pork,Veal and pasta dishes were all loved by our group. As always spot on, thanks to Johnny,Andrea and staff.

Our scallop appetizer was amazing. The pasta dishes excellent with perfectly cooked pasta. Great flavors. I was very excited about the dessert which was a strawberry Cointreau crepe. It was a complete flop. The crepe was cold and tough. Probably made yesterday. How hard is it to make a fresh crepe. Or atleast warm it up. Sadly this really disappointed.... More

It's over 2 years since my last review of this restaurant which we enjoyed at the time. We returned there last night with visitors from Sydney who were paying and asked us to choose. We felt after our last experience that La Fetticcina would offer quality, flavoursome, home style cooking that would suit a mixed group with good service. I... More
