We'd never been here but my wife and decided to try on the recommendation of a friend. Really good restaurant. I have to admit I'm always a fan when it's byo wine so that was a positive start. The entrees we had were almost a main meal in themselves. My prawn started had 6 massive BBQ prawns and my wife's... More

Good mainly Italian food in the centre of the Spot in Randwick. Relatively pricey but very good food and great before or after a movie at the Ritz Theatre

The food is mediocre. Bland. Three stars. The service is awful. Zero stars. After we placed an order for our dessert, we waited for over 25min to never see it. We asked someone to check on it with no result. After we got up to leave, I did mention the ice cream to our waitress, and the only thing we... More

The staff are wonderful and cope with everything with great aplomb. The food is OK - the menu could do with being briefer and therefore more freshly cooked. The seafood basket all tasted the same, whether it was calamari or fish. The twice cooked duck could have been three or four times cooked - who would know? Generous portions.

The food was delicious. I had veal, prawns, veggies and potatoes. The service could be a bit better. We had a great time and enjoyed our visit.

Went there with a group of friends. Service was very friendly and efficient. The pasta is okay, but wouldn't recommend the pizza at all. The base is tasteless and hard, not better than the ones from the freezer section at coles. Not in a rush to go back to Pinocchios at all.

The food was good but expensive and the service was very poor. It took us 30 mins to even get a drink! Yes it was busy but it's not worth the expense for such slow service.

We visited here last night with a group of 14. Whilst the service was ok the pizzas were terrible. The base was clearly store bought and was very hard. Everyone who ordered pizza left at least half of it. Very disappointed :(

Busy Sunday night, we order a Tomato Bruschetta as a starter cause we thought the steaks would take time since it was well-done. For a italian restaurant I was expecting more from the Bruschettas (very dry bread and could add some cheese on it). We order one Eye Fillet Steak and one New York Sirloin, both well-done and sauces on... More

This is the fourth visit here on the invitation of others. Unable to talk them out of it as I knew what to expect. Most recent was a birthday dinner with over 35 people. Restaurant itself is lovely, clean, though extremely noisy and the staff are very friendly. The toilet facilities are also clean. The food unfortunately is well presented... More
