Firstly i do like the décor, bit rustic that slightly old world charm, all the dishes we had were of a high quality.
Good wine list and we settled on a lovely Cab Sav.
The staff were attentive without being intrusive, they had it just right.
I have seen previous negative comments about service, to be honest i really could not fault them, just excellent.
Definitely will be going back.

Had a fantastic birthday dinner here, the ravioloni al pomodoro was amazing.
Our waiter was courteous however don't expect a quick turn around. The food is freshly made so 2 hours for dinner is what it will take especially if your having the degustazione.
Would recommend for anyone wanting a special night with someone you love!

i went here with my husband on a Sat night. we booked late and even though they first said they were booked out, they found us a table. i found the atmosphere quite romantic with a definite Italian feel from the decor to the waiters. The service could not be faulted and they accommodated my vegetarianism in their degustation menu. They did not have a sommelier but we got by with some recommendations by the waiter.
The food was good but not fantastic. Simple dishes of raw fish, a very simple caprese salad, my husband loved the lamb and my dish of the night was a perfectly cooked fillet of barramundi. However the barramundi was served with caramalised onion which did not pair well to my tastes.The wine list was good and workable but i would have preferred a couple more Italian wines by the glass. I would go back.

Visiting Brisbane from Sydney and went to tartufo and had a fantastic italian meal. Despite other trip advisor comments the service was a high point of the evening with a very friendly and thoughtful waiter. The appetisers were sensational, I can highly recommend the salt and pepper squid and aranchini. The size of the dishes was impressive and we over ordered as a result. You could be very consent with an appertiser and an entree and skip the more expensive mains altogether. The interior is nice but the energy saving light globes really let's it down.

We've been here a few times now and the experience gets better each time. Absolutely love the design of the restaurant. It's so spacious yet still maintains an intimacy and cosiness about it. The atmosphere really takes you to another place. The service is consistently attentive although a little overbearing the first time we went. The food and wine menus are both terrific, however each time we've visited, something we've wanted to order from the food menu has been unavailable at the beginning of dinner service. Apart from that, we'll be back for their sensational appetisers and vitello tonnato!
