Basic "pub style" Italian meals, average quality and reasonable in size but overpriced. Lamb was cooked to perfection. Gnocci ordinary and not tasty. Very slow to get meals although they were quite busy.

On a gloriously sunny day we stopped in Dromana for a late lunch. The service was courteous and prompt. The menu was not large but varied enough to meet all our needs. The meals were a good size, hot and very tasty. Atmosphere was good. Would visit again.

Busy, not the best staff, crappy kids park and expensive. Oh and a very slippery floor so wear your hiking boots.
