I had read some great reviews and was looking forward to having a great meal here, however was a little disappointed with the main meals. We had the chessy garlic bread which was awesome, however we were just hoping for plain old garlic bread. For...our mains my wife had the chicken Scallopini with the powdered "Deb style mashed potatoe" which was nice but not to the standard of the prices charged. I had the Spaghetti frutti di mare (seafood) was ok, it was just lacking a little, the presentation in the foil it was cooked in I am assuming, took a little bit of the nice Italian restaurant feel away. The staff were awesome and very friendly and helpful, checking in on you constantly, our waitress was very good at her job. The restaurant and vibe there is great and while we are not big drinkers, there drinks are reasonably priced. It wasn't a bad meal, just a little lacking in taste and presentation, pricey compared to some other meals we have had in the area for a lot less that were excellent meals.More

We had dinner, My wife, my son and me, yesterday evening. We had gnocchi pesto, taste terrible and my wife found a piece of plastic inside gnochi, It almost choked my wife, a piece of plastic inside gnocchi. We ordered Penne for my son, my...wife repeated twice to the waitress and somehow she brought wrong order, they serve spaghetti instead, Dewi was took the ordered and she the one served it, my wife ask her, I told you Penne pasta for my son, she just said sorry. Maybe for adult 10 minutes it's nothing, but for 3 years old kid need to have dinner it is take long. It was not busy, most of the waiter just standing not even pay attention to guest. And I need to speak and come to counter to find dewi, to ask what happened with the plastic we found, she just said it is chili flake, come on it was big plastic, and she said to my wife to go to speak with chef. I was waiting for manager to appologies, and Even dewi showed bad attitude to my wife and start find any excuses for wrong order, And my wife told Dewi that she should not argue with guest, especially she did the mistake, You need to train your staff better manner to deal with guest What a poor service and lack of Hygiene from kitchen, What a shamed!!!!!!!!More

Everything is delicious and a lot is handmade. Pizzas are terrific, the cured meat platter is great, and the chicken and potato soup is stunning.

We loved the look of this place and thought the menu looked pretty good and we had a nibble while we decided ... which was ok. We then saw a picture of a western chef being advertised on posters and what made us eat elsewhere...is seeing the said chef outside the toilets (in a dining area) with a fag in his mouth. Clearly a French / Italian Chef that's lost his standards as he wouldn't do that back home???More

The perfect mix of food. The Italian food is made by the BEST chef ever. I’ve tried simple pastas that are so delicious and even chicken nuggets with chips and THE BEST gravy ever. Whatever you order, it will not disappoint. Staff are so lovely...and the atmosphere is buzzing.More

Love Aldente , Best authentic Italian i had in Indonesia. Is attached to a sports bar called "the Stadium Cafe" , this is an aussie sports bar where you can watch NRL, AFL and cricket when any match is on. Or if you rather eat...out the back in the airconditioned garden rooms. Must visit if you love italian food! I must also add , i come from an Italian back ground and the Cannelloni Di Carne is better than my mothers (dont tell her is said that)More
