Visiting Lismore for the first time, Trattoria Pagotto was highly recommended to us although we were warned to be disappointed as it's a small restaurant and we didn't have a booking. Arriving at 7 pm on a Friday night we were delighted to find a table available. The food, atmosphere and friendliness of the hosts was fantastic. We went for... More

Simon's love of food and sharing his creations with guests who quickly become friends is clearly evident from the moment you sit down. Limited seating capacity it pays to book well ahead or you may miss out. This is a popular eatery locally and the place to go to get to know the folk on the next table. Very informal,... More

Very personalised service, great food cooked with love and attention. Being able to watch your food being prepared with fresh local ingredients is a treat. The osso bucco was cooked for 9 hours and very tender. The tiramisu was a treasure and not shy on the booze - beware. Simon is an attentive host and regales with stories of Italy... More

Nice relaxed family Italian dining. Pasta first class and memorable. Pork a tad dry but lamb and fish were well received. Good value and a great place for large celebrations.

My hungry companion thoroughly enjoyed a quick pasta. We had to eat quickly as the table was reserved, but this wasn't an issue. The food is good, moderately priced, but as this is a "Hole in the Wall" ( what could be more Italian)...I recommend reservations. The service is very friendly and the cooks and wait staff are fully into... More

Fantastic as always. We have never had a bad meal here, the food is always fresh and cooked from scratch. Fantastic flavours and very generous serves . Very small room, seats 12 but the food makes up for everything else. BYO and the best restuarant in Lismore . Changing menu depending on season. Best pizza too. I can't rave enough... More

Small venue, some people would walk past. Never judge a book by its cover, it is my favourite restaurant fro pizzas in Lismore the Gnocchi is incredibly delicious, homemade pasta is divine.

The two chefs that run this place cook the most delicious, clean mostly northern Italian food around the district. They select the best raw material (usually local) and turn it, through alchemy, into something you'll be conjuring up in your mind's taste buds for years to come. Generous servings, with an eye to presentation, and the unique desires of the... More

I came here on several occasions as I loved the food. Really good tasting. Also the atmosphere is very good. Almost $30 for this meal is a little bit pricey. For this price I expect to be treated well. The owner Simon is very rude to me after I chose him to do my dinner. Don't think i'm coming here... More

If you are looking for 5 star table service you may want to move on. If you are searching for a restaurant with a family feel and fantastic home made qualities, this is the place for you. A fantastic place for lunch size pasta dishes with friendly regulars.
