Fantastic place, very busy, but enjoyable.

Food was spot on, wine menu extensive and staff are friendly.

You need to book.

Wow what a fabulous place. Great and attentive service with an italian flare/cheekiness. Food was absolutely delicious. Then you can go upstairs and have a well crafted cocktail.

The place was busy on Friday night, good venue for drinking as it was with great ambience.

We visited for dinner so the experience was not as good.
Space were tiny, the table basically not able to house all the cutlery and glasses.
The food was in rather small portion, they came with nice presentation but average in terms of quality.
Restaurant was busy hence service was rather basic.

In shirt, not recommended for a proper dinner, good for drinks and nibbles.

Great food, great atmosphere, waiter was a bit too aggressive in my opinion. But overall we had a great time. (Felt a bit pressured to leave tip) only reason not giving a 5!

They do a few dishes and they do them well. The fish was delicious and beautifully cooked in their jostra (wood fired oven). Nicely presented with some super over priced sides that were nothing special. The chocolate cake for dessert was sublime. Only problem was this place was crowded and so noisy I had to take a star off the rating. If you are hard of hearing or have a soft voice just don’t come here. It was frustrating being in an environment where you literally had to shout to be heard. Horrible. $165 a couple not good value by any stretch. 2 courses one glass of wine and shared sides.
