“Always good a touch of Rome”
Reviewed May 31, 2013 via mobile

Have been going here over 5 years and have never had a bad experience. Staff are happy and helpful with good knowledge of the menu. One of the best things is it is BYO wine which means you can enjoy a beautiful meal, a drink with friends and have money in your pocket for a spend at Salamanca Market the next morning. Great food,service and surroundings

“Great, Good, Fantastic”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

I recently took my family to Tasmania and made sure we had a meal at this restaurant. My wife and I were taken there a couple of years ago by friends and had to take the rest of the family there this trip. They were not disappointed as claimed by myself this is one of the best restaurants I have eaten at including international travels. One of my daughters has recently travelled with her partner and visited Italy, they were so impressed by the food they stated it was better than the food they ate in Italy. I cannot praise the food enough and would suggest the calzone which is unbelievable, not to take away from the service which is both efficient and friendly. This is a must when I head back to Hobart. We loved it!!

Reviewed March 22, 2013

Always delicious pizzas. Try the Paesano or the seafood - quick take away service too. And other Italian fare. Always good.

“Confusion to book and very average evening with OK food”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

It took 3 calls to make a reservation. When we arrived there was a tiny table, we knew it would be outside and were OK with that. However we had to point out that it would not be possible to put plates for 6 of us on what was big enough for 2. Eventually after waiting 20 minutes we were moved to a bigger table. Not a great start. The waitress was very pleasant and we ordered our food. The garlic pizza was enjoyed by all 6 of us. When the main courses arrived they came out at intervals, always awkward! The pasta dish I had was huge and swimming with ingredients. It was OK. The veal which was the special of the day was really enjoyed by the one who had it. The salad main course was OK accoring to the 2 who had that. The pizza was good.

We cant blame the weather on the restaurant, it was really cold when our food came and so alfresco dining was tricky! In hindsight it might have been wiser to dine elsewhere if the only option was outside.
