“Great service, pretty spot”
Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

Attentive and professional waiter.

Ordered entrees and a main pizza to share.
Decent pizza but the waiter really worked hard and our glases were never left empty or plates uncleared. Decent coffee also. Not sure why everyone had bad experiences but food was respectable along with the service.

“No Go.....”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Recently went to this restaurant to celebrate my 60th Birthday with family, I have never been so disappointed. The food was barely eatable,one pasta dish was actually crunchie....???.I rang to let the manager know how I felt but he didn't seem to concerned said they NEVER get complaints,my suggestion was for him to go to trip adviser & read what people have said,not good. Just won,t go back again.

“Great night out”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

We came to Lygon Street with visitors from interstate that wanted to dine there and Copperwood was chosen by looks only when walking up the street. We had no reservation but were very quickly accommodated by the friendly staff. Once seated our drink order was taken with plenty of time to choose our food. We were told of the specials. Lamb shank ragout , the fried gnocchi were stand out dishes alng with the seared scallops. Couldn't,t fault the service or food and were all very good considering how busy it was. pleasantly surprised by the bill as we had entrees, mains desserts and drinks. If I had read previous comments prior to going we probably would have bypassed this restaurant, but it is obvious its just a very personal experience on the night.

“Don't just keep walking......run!”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

The wood burner looked attractive on a cold night. Unfortunately we were seated near the door which opened frequently and sometimes was held open by a conversing waiter. We watched open mouthed as the waiter poured about a glass of wine all over the table ,missing the glass entirely and completely oblivious to his error until it dripped from the edge of the table. Much mopping and apologies but no replacement of the wine. Next I was offered someone else's dinner! When mine did come,spaghetti with fish ,there was very little fish and the dish was very oily. The lasagna was pretty meatless too. Cold and discouraged we left and had desert elsewhere.

“Keep walking!!”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

Over attentive waiter - for the love of god shoooossshhh! Average food!! After listening to the waiter bang on about old style Italian cooking with only the freshest ingredients I was expecting a truly spectacular meal but was instead served a pedestrian dish. Yes I was disappointed but decided to give them a chance to redeem themselves with dessert. Home style apple crumble not microwaved with fresh produce? I think not! Below average & served with nasty tasting cheap ice cream - $15 mind you Booooo
