My wife, daughter, grandchild and I had dinner here on a recent Sunday evening. The location is outstanding, the service was good but the food was very average. We all thought the same... even our 19mth grand daughter who eats everything did not like her pasta dish. Maybe it was an off night.

Great location , Great staff , Good food and a good size , starters did seem to be a little over priced . Garlic bread was a bit stale .. But overall I would go back for a second chance .

After reading some good reviews we gave this a try for lunch. Guess we visited on an off day. Mediterranean salad was uninteresting and lacking any oils or flavour. The share plate of scallop, oyster, salmon was stale like it had been sitting in a fridge or something for 24 hours waiting to be served. Sorry, but just awful. Wouldn't... More

Fantastic view and pizza. Pina colada was excellent and refreshing. We had oysters as an entree which were nice. The pasta was ok however the highlight was the pizza. Would go back got coffee and cake, they looked delish.

I met some friends for lunch at The Italian Restaurant. The weather was mixed but the meal was fantastic. I chose the Salmon and Mango - perfectly cooked grilled salmon served on a bed of mango salad. My friends had Veal Involtini and Pollo al Limone. All were excellent - there was barely a smear left on each plate. The... More

The Italian at The Entrance is a venue to enjoy for all occasions and we love going there. Whether you want to enjoy a bruschetta and glass of red on the boardwalk, a pizza or great pasta or fresh seafood you won't be disappointed. You can spend a little or go the whole hog but everyone enjoys the same wonderful... More

We were 2 couples and chose to share our meals. We started off with anti pasta platter which is sufficient for 4 to share to start. A great variety of cured meats and cheeses and plenty of roasted vegetables and crunchy bread to accompany it. For mains we ordered 2 pizzas and a salad and it was probably a bit... More
