“Reasonable Italian Food”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

Quite a good atmosphere to have food. The food was reasonable for the price and the pizza was quite all right.

The service was bit too attentive. While having conversations with friends, it was a bit disruptive to be constantly asked whether things were ok. Maybe wait for the opportune moment. The staff have been trained to do so but not trained ask at the right moment. Lack experience.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

Saturday night out with the bride, mixed dips for her and stuffed mushies for me dips boring and the mushrooms good flavours but small and a little dry. For mains Spatchcock and Papardella pasta with roast duck etc, well Spatchcock overcooked and dry and the accompanying sauce much to heavy and cloyed as for the pasta word from my girl, "OK". So no dessert. Service fair.
Overall DISAPPOINTING.

“Im generally not a massive Italian food fan, but this place is good!”
Reviewed June 19, 2012

Great attentive service, without being in your face. Food is well cooked and presented. Good drinks menu. Despite almost being in a mall car park, outside dining maintains a fun atmosphere. Keep an eye out for boutique beer from England being passed its best buy date. Overall a good experience, I’d go back.

“Started well but now patchy”
Reviewed April 30, 2012 via mobile

The food is often good, but too often also not so good. Pizzas are more consistent.

“Great pizza, average mains, great atmosphere, excellent staff.”
Reviewed August 16, 2011

Pizza, atmosphere and drinks are all superb. The staff are friendly, prompt and efficient. Prices are good. They just need to improve their mains and especially the sides/salads. Really cool place though. Go try it.
