This restaurant is delightfully-presented, the owner/maitre'd is engaging and helpful, the birra Menabrea is a wonderful product of the North, and the portions are quite generous. But we're going to burst their bubble with two brickbats. [1] The pasta and risotto dishes we had were judged to be bland (lacking in flavour intensity). They need to look at this. And... More

Went for dinner with a group of friends on a typical busy Saturday night in Burleigh. Ordered pizzas and a couple of entrees to share. Food was delicious, however serving sizes were quite small.

Went a couple of times and will come back. Authentic Italian cuisine in Australia and good food and friendly staff. You can sit outside or inside. BYO. But expect to pay around $30 AUD a head including corkage.

I was out with a group of friends and really felt like having a pizza, we walked past this restaurant and the fact that it was half empty on a Saturday night should have been the first warning. We asked the waiter for a table and when we said we had no reservation he let out a expletive and then... More

We have just returned from Australia and while we were in Burleigh heads we ate at Vecchia Roma West Street, I have to say this was the worst Italian food we have ever had. The food was cold and unblanched and over priced, the service was slow and the staff were rude and unhelpful. We will never eat here again,... More

Went here on Sunday 10th January. Not many people here this night. We went as a family for a nice meal only to be let down. Serving size of the Gnocchi was barely entree size. Pizza were just ok. The worst bit was lack of service. We had to ask for drinks constantly and even then they forgot. There was... More

We went here with a group of 9 including lots of kids. Great service. Pleasant and attentive. Well presented meals and a great variety to choose from. Service was quick and food tasted great. The staff interacted with the kids and were very friendly as well as professional. We had a great time. Thanks.
