Friends wanted to take my husband out for dinner. We walked up Glenferrie rd and called in and were not disappointed. Great service. Beautiful wine and the food was outstanding. Would definitely go back.

Visited on a Sunday night. The food was all tasty (especially the lasagna) and the waiter was good at matching wines to the selected dishes. The only downside was some very slow service and some hungry diners.

This restaurant is big enough to always get a seat anytime. The food is good, quickly served and even sometimes, you can get a smile from the italian server :) When packed, the place is a little bit noisy but it's bearable.
