Went here with friends who declare it as their most favourite restaurant. I think I must just be too fussy but I honestly did not think the food merited the prices they charge here. I had the Misto Fritto di Pesce which was supposed to be "lightly fried" prawns, Fish, scallops and calamari served with salad. Well at $39.50 I was defnitely expecting something better than what I got. First of all the food was only just luke warm - 4 prawns, 6 scallops, 3 small pieces of indeterminate fish and a scattering of calamari. The "salad" was a massive pile of spinach and rocket with little else (2 halves of cherry tomato, 3 slices of cucumber and 3 olives). The prawns tasted slightly muddy, whatever coating was supposed to be on the scallops was soft and greasy and falling off, I think it was meant to crunchy crumbs - maybe because the dish had been standing for a while everything had softened up. The presentation, served in a "shell" of some kind of semi crispy pastry, is good but all in all a huge disappointment and way way way too expensive. However, one of my dining companions had the same dish and said she enjoyed it. Go figure. my other friend had the Petti di Pollo, which was Chicken breast stuffed with prosciutto and cheese on a bed of mashed potato. Again this dish cost $39.50 but it did look a bit more worth the money - I also suspect the reason our fish dish was cold was due to waiting for this dish to be cooked.
Once again, I had to resort to ordering dessert as I was still hungry after the paltry serving for the mains. Had the sticky date pudding ($11.50) and I have to say it was very nice though I am not usually a dessert eater so perhaps not the best judge of a good dessert. I thought the butterscotch sauce was devine but I am a bit of a sauce freak
All in all, I didn't rate the place very well. The service was appalling and the cost exorbitant. I don't mind laying top prices for top food but this place is definitely over rated and over priced. I won't be going back there if I can help it. Sorry
