Had dinner Friday night with a friend. Reservation was recommended as it gets full from early evening onwards.
Starters: peppers stuffed with feta and marscapone (5pc) and calamari (10cm tubes) tapas (5pc). Absolutely delicious.
Mains: marinated pork belly and potato, and papadelle pasta with panchetta and mushroom. Outstanding flavours and textures.
Food is incredibly fresh. Large portion size - neither my friend or I could finish our mains after the decent size tapas servings.
We didn't drink wine but it appears to have wines selected to accompany each dish.
There's a nice variety and plenty of tapas to choose from. You could easily make a meal from 2-4 tapas dishes between 2 people without having a main dish.
We sat just inside the entrance and could very comfortably enjoy the atmosphere and hear each other easily. Nice modern furnishings.
The service is very friendly and attentative.
The food is not cheap with mains between $25-$40 but it's a large portion size and the quality of food is outstanding. I would rather pay $30 here for a pasta dish than a steak elsewhere.
Very pleasant experience and would definitely return and recommend.

I live right near Park Road and this is the only restaurant in the area that I frequent on a regular basis. The food is always heavenly, the atmosphere is fantastic and the staff are some of the best I have ever encountered. I keep going back because the experience is always memorable for all the right reasons.

We have eaten at this Sicilian restaurant a number of times since it opened at the end of 2010. This is a more formal dining experience compared to the neighbouring cafes, but the atmosphere is still laid back and welcoming. The menu is fairly extensive. We have tried many dishes and they've always been good. Our most recent visit was dinner for Valentine's Day. There was a set menu (which always makes me nervous) but the selection of meals was wonderful and we were both happy. The wine list is not long, but it is good. The staff are always friendly and happy to help. The decor is lovely with some very nice features. You can also choose to dine outside on Park Road.

We arrived without a reservation, the restaurant at the time was half full and had many reserved tables, luckily for us they were very accommodating and promptly made us up a table. The menu had a good selection of tapas and main menus with suggestions of wines which matched the dish, we all liked that feature. Complimentary tapa plate to start was very welcoming and refreshing to start with. Our meals were delicious with good service to match, we didn't have dessert, but they looked fabulous, maybe next time. We will definitely be back in the future and recommend this restaurant to our family and friends.

My 3rd meal here - could be more - street side food - tapas - good value for Park Road - very smart wine list- out side seating meant we watched a girl on a scooter nearly run over by a car was a no extra!

This is the spot in Park Road!
