We have visited this restaurant (and its prevoius incarnations across the road) many times over the years and it never fails to please. We stayed in Surfers for a week in October and went twice for dinner during our stay. The service is fantastic and the food divine, its reputation and the many great reviews it gets are completely justified.... More

It was our first night in Surfer's and we decided to go here because of the proximity to our hotel. We were amazed at how busy the place was. The service was impeccable, everyone was very friendly and attentive. The food was perfect. Everyone at our table thoroughly enjoyed their meals. In a country that is so overrun with Italian...

We dined here about 18months ago on our last visit to the goldcoast and made it a mission to return this holiday as well. We were not disappointed. The food is fresh and delicious and the service is wonderful. The staff were attentive and the atmosphere welcoming. We will be back that's for sure!

We were in Surfers Paradise for business and stayed at the Q1. This restaurant was across the road from the Q1, we stayed in Surfers for 8 nights, and ate at this restaurant 5 times it was so good, sampling most of our favourite dishes on the menu, the Eye fillet steak with funghi sauce was incredible.

A very busy restaurant, with very friendly and helpful staff, we didn't make a booking and turned up, and were greeted, name taken, and given an approx time to dine, which was pretty spot on. The food was delicious, and we can't wait to return for another meal. Kid friendly too :-)

Food was very tasty. Went with my family and coming from an Italian back round the food was authentic. Great service and there was nothing that was too much trouble. Definitely recommend.

What a fantastic place, we went there without a booking after walking past earlier in the day and liking the look of the menu and we were not disappointed. The place was packed to the point where there was a line outside the doors and in the street for people waiting to get in. The (owner?) greets you at the... More

Tried this place out. It was a just out of the main over crowded Cavill mall but an easy walk along Surfers a Paradise Boulevard. Had no complaints, enjoyed the pizza, it was made to suit our taste and allergy condition. Good wine and food and friendly staff. Plenty other people were eating here so usually an indication that the... More
