I chose Arriva as it had good reviews, however on my visit things appeared to be slightly chaotic. My pizza was soggy in the middle and having it served on a chopping board with what looked like a cake slice, I was left a little confused as to how to eat it. They had also removed my plate, so I presumed eating it by hand was the way to go. However they did not provide any napkins, which I then had to ask them for. An average experience all round and quite far from the town centre.

A wide set menu with daily specials to cater for all whims, well priced with attentive youthful service. A good mid week option, when their pasta will always taste better than your home cooked version!

We got takeaway a few weeks back and I had to cook food for my Husband as the pasta serving was ridiculously small for $28 just not good enough. I had to put the pizza in the oven to crisp it up as it just was not finish and it too was very small.

Will not bother again!

I was suspicious about this place - scared that it would be dogey Italian food.

However the food is excellent.

Fettuccine Tartufo was wonderful. The panna cotta excellent.

It is now on our favourite list.
