Mmmmmmmmm delicious!!!! We arrived early and our order was taken with entree arriving within 10 minutes. The garlic prawns were simply sensational....the arancini yummy. For mains we had the risotto and the fettuccini... Both were beautiful. Great service even better food!

Tucked away on the boulevard next to the Beach Hotel. Fine dining for sure. Great cocktails, amazing wines, lovely service and exquisite food. Beautiful setting too. Can't say anything negative, expect it's not for budget travelers....

Ate here with friends and all the food was very nice. Surprised that there were no pizza options on the menu at an italian restaurant. Quite expensive but probably worth it

The food here is seriously on point and good value for money, perfect atmosphere and good service, my onlly negative point would be that the drink service was pretty slow for the amount of staff.

We had the 12 hour slow-cooked Cape Grim rib eye, and Risotto of the day. The rib eye was outstanding. The risotto was pleasant but a bit overwhelmed with salty parmesan and guanciale - not too exciting. Delicious pate and arancini.

Part of the huge pub but separate enough to offer good atmosphere, great Italian food at typical high Byron prices

We ate here - booking the restaurant out - for a family, friends and hangers-on night of celebration and dinner the evening before the wedding. It was perfect. Considering we all sat down at the same time, the service and the food was very good and the staff excellent. Good starters, mains and wine. Busy, brilliant atmosphere. Great place to... More

If not for an elderly gentleman who got up from his own table to greet us, we would have been left waiting a while to be seated, however after we were seated and a family entered that the waitress knew she rushed out to greet and seat them as quick as anything! We returned the following night to eat here... More

Relaxed setting, very good service and great Italian food. My husband and I visited on a quiet Monday night. We tried the arancini balls and olive selection for entree and the risotto special and ravioli for mains. The meals were faultless and we will definitely be returning.
