Traveled during school holidays and found this restaurant via "Near Me" on the TripAdvisor app. Read the reviews and thought I would give it a go. Locate approx 10min walk from Cavill Ave. Definitely booking is recommended. As the restaurant does not open until 5pm, you can call after 4.30pm to make a booking. Upon our first visit for a...

Had dinner here last night. My nephew and his girlfriend both had a pasta dish which was lovely. I opted for the rocket + Parmesan with calamari wrong decision . The rocket was old and wilted plus 6 pieces of calamari. We then asked for the dessert menu but waited so long that we decided to have coffee and cake... More

Warmly greeted by the owner Raf and his staff, we were really blown away by the great service and how this was given to all his customers. The menu,... More

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.

My partner and I were looking for a place to eat dinner and this restaurant was just around the corner from the Q1 we were staying at. The food was amazing. I went for the traditional spaghetti Bol and it was just perfect. The serving was massive and it tasted amazing Staff were very friendly which added more value to... More
