We were looking forward to dinner here, given the Trip Advisor reviews. Unfortunately, very disappointing overall. We walked in, were not greeted in friendly manner-more surly. The waitress was nice, but did not seem to know the food nor was she familiar with wine. The table was tiny so we had to keep handing dishes to the server. The rolls... More

We were taken in by the other reviews here and went in for dinner. Very quiet; we thought we were ahead of the crowd, but locals must know. Started well: nice atmosphere, waitress was attentive, but then the food: started with stale rolls hard enough to break teeth. When we complained, they brought out the fresh rolls. Then ordered the... More

We went for dinner and was hoping for fantastIc food. We had a reservation so we were seated quickly. We had coconut prawns and lobster bisque they were good. Had to ask to order wine but it was good. I ordered the Seafood Chowder Fetticini. It was disappointing. The sauce was bland and the amount of seafood was sparse 1... More

Nice restaurant, spacious for families. Menu offers pasta, steak, schnitzel, etc., so enough variety for the whole family.

A great atmosphere for evening dining - good menu selection and a good wine list. I recommend reservations on Friday and Saturday nights.

My two friends and I stopped by for dinner. Two of us had the lasagna. We should have split the order! It was probably 6x6x6" if not more. Many layers of meaty sauce and cheese, topped by browned melted mozzarella cheese. Oh my! Neither of us could come close to finishing it. The third person in our party ordered the... More

This little restaurant was suggested by our hotel. The venue is small, but the food was really good. Our server was cheerful and very efficient. I was surprised by how quickly our dinners arrived. The menu was set up to accommodate a variety of appetites.

The Alley Cafe is an Italian restaurant with very average food. It is located in an alley behind the main street in town.

This place is literally off an alley (behind other buildings) so doesn't have much of a view. But the beautiful interior makes up for it. The food is expensive but excellent. (Sometimes I wish you could get half portions, or perhaps those with small appetites could split an entree--something to think about for next time, anyway.)
