“Great food”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

Trip adviser gave this restaurant good reviews, so my husband and I tried it out.
I had the Eye fillet dish, which was cooked to perfection, the steak melted in your mouth.
My husband had a pasta dish again cooked to perfection as lots of restaurants get pasta dishes wrong.
This place is well worth a visit.

“Oldest established Italian restaurant”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

This wonderful restaurant opened its door way back in 1965 and is still extremely popular. If you do not want to be disappointed it is wise to make an advanced booking. The restaurant is now in the hands of a second generation. The food is excellent, likewise the service There is a small, but well selected wine list

“Our favourite local”
Reviewed November 13, 2012 via mobile

Don Camillo is our favourite local restaurant. Totally dependable - fine food, great atmosphere and really friendly staff. Graziano and Dinosaur are on top of their game. We go back at least once a month.

“Gorgeous authentic Italian food in a busy, vibrant atmosphere”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

This place was recommended to me by a client who used to regularly frequent Don Camillos with his wife for years until they moved away. I'd known where it was but had never been there, so took the plunge to see if it was as good as he'd suggested....it's now one of our favourite places!

Wonderful food, great atmosphere, friendly attentive staff - make sure you book though, as there's obviously lots of other people who know the secret!! The background noise can get quite loud as it's such a busy place, so probably recommended for larger groups rather than an intimate evening.

“Questo e' perfetto”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Based on a friends recommendation, we ventured here on a cold and windy Thursday night. Arriving around 7:30pm, there were only 2 or 3 tables left and the place was full of friendly chatter and laughter - a great welcome to a new restaurant experience.

We started the meal with garlic bruschetta and beers (Peroni of course!) before ordering mains. Along with one other, I ordered the pollo involtini whilst the 3rd in our party ordered the fettuccine ai funghi. All meals with very well presented and definitely on the large side, making them particularly good value I thought at around $25 for a main. The chicken was fantastic, stuffed with just enough peppers to make it a very filling dish.

Even though we were completely stuffed, we all still found enough room for some tiramisu which, much like the main, was a very generous serving. Finished off with a great cup of coffee, we all left very much satisfied and keen to return again soon.

Given that we only just scored a table walking in on a Thursday, I'd definitely recommend making a reservation on a Friday or Saturday night as I'd say they would be pretty busy!!
