Here first time and liked it. Caught up with a friend for movie. Busy place on a Saturday night. Lucky to have a table free for us. Tried the calamari pizza with jalapeños and chilli flakes. Mind blowing!

Ventured in to the restaurant after the cinema for an evening meal. They were very accommodating with our dietary requirements (lactose and fructose) and allowed us to alter the dishes to suit said requirements. Unfortunately, when the dishes arrived the lactose free dish was completely wrong and had to be sent back. This meant my partner had finished her meal... More

A catch up with friends first time at Balsamic. I eat out a bit and travel on business, I was a chef for many years. I thought the food was very basic and had that pub feel, pizza bruschetta was very nice to start with but thats about it, my Caesar salad was simple. Coffee was very bitter i had... More

I like Balsamic - its a big place and can get busy but the food I have had has been very good and always comes out very quickly. I haven't missed the start of a movie yet. Good value.

A birthday dinner held at Balsamic proved to be an excellent choice. Service was very good and attentive and our food likewise. The only disappointment was the risotto which was dry and lacked substance. Pizzas were all delicious. Wine is reasonably priced as it is not BYO. We would certainly go back. It is very busy but that I find... More

We were a party of six and had reserved a table for 6pm on a Saturday evening. The restaurant was busy. Drinks were served and we had time to look at the menu. The orders were taken and the food appeared in good time. It just seemed that the staff were over worked and harassed and this seemed to rub... More

Given the recent upgrade at Eastland Shopping Centre, we were expecting this restaurant may have lifted its game with the new competition in the area. Unfortunately, this does not appear to be the case. It is a great location if you are going to the Hoyts cinemas as there is only one other eatery in the immediate vicinity. We went... More

I've been coming to Balsamic for years. My favourite meal is always salt and pepper calimari. The service is always good but sometimes I think they can be a little under staffed but they handle that well
