Fantastic atmosphere - fabulous food - superb hospitality of Raf and his staff - mouth watering pastas and of course pizzas especially the cromos special - must visit if you are on the Gold Coast - will not regret.

I think the Italian food here is better and more authentic than Genellis which is supposed to be one of the best in Gold Coast. My partner had chicken risotto which I tried and thought amazing, I had the VIP which was as good of quality to what I've had in northern Italy. You won't be disappointed.

Without doubt the restaurant serves the best Italian food I have had in years. The atmosphere is superb, the staff happy and attentive and the owner was very welcoming. Wide variety of dishes that were very large servings and very good value. Went there two nights during our 5 days stay.

If you're after an amazing Italian restaurant with top quality service and delicious food then this is the place for you. 10/10 service from the friendly staff and we had our meals within ten minutes. We'll definitely be back.

Staff friendly, service adequate but a little slow (perhaps a busy Monday night, due to high TA rating). Food OK but nothing special. Be aware it is very casual, almost a little downmarket, fine for families & casual dining. I was underwhelmed, perhaps expectations too high.
