This restaurant has a smallish menu with authentic options. The entrees - arancini balls were super. Mains looked small in the massive plates but were quite filling. Deserts😍😍. The waiters were what made the night great. Downside was that it was nearly impossible to have a conversation due to the wooden floors and tables all sounds echoed around the room.... More

Great atmosphere (booths out the front are great on a nice night), good service and really delicious Italian food. This is not a cheap and cheerful past/pizza joint. The duck was perfectly cooked with tender meat and a crispy skin on great gnocchi and had a perfect sauce. The lasagne is made with shredded lamb that makes it really good.... More

This Italian restaurant was beautiful. Right on the Byron Bay beach with absolutely delicious food. The service was fantastic. Will go again before we leave for sure.

We were very impressed with this restaurant, the food was spot on, great service with a smile, and the environment is very nice. This is fine dining, worth paying a little extra.

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.

Thank Sapphire D
