We regularly visit and have always found it to be very good. The meals are a decent size, the menu includes a good range and the quality of the food is great too. The service has always been great, very down to earth and responsive.

But at least all of the 3 waiters were consistent with their mispronunciation of the Italian language. We were eventually noticed when we walked in off the street for a table, and then promptly forgotten about again. We seemed to be nobody's priority. At least one waiter apologised for it. No one waiter was assigned to our table, and the service lacked severely as a result. No offer of dessert, or even another drink.

The "Brew-shetta" was pretty average, in any case. I would prefer to eat it with my hand, but the bread was too soggy. Matrigiana (I have seen it as matriciana, but it is presumably a dialect), was a little too salty, but very tasty. The serving was far too big though. I would prefer a smaller serving and have secondi, but that is not what Aussies like to do. My wife's veal marsala was tasty, with a warm vegetable salad covered in tomato sauce on the side.

The wine list is reasonably priced, but only a couple by the glass, no carafe option. The wines tend to be fairly low-brow, and generic. The decor is also low-brow - stainless steel tables, large mirror across one wall, surrounded by salmon pink paint. Fake plants around the edge, next to the large open windows on a summer night were actually the nicest part of it all.

The bottom line - not great value for money, but the food was quite good overall.

love the food.Always freshly cooked. Great take away as well. Always popular so need to book. A little noisy when booked out but staff are helpful.

This is a well appointed Italian that specialises in pizza and pasta. I dined with two friends who are regulars. The breads were a filler prior to the mains. We all had pasta and my chilli seafood pasta with garlic was excellent. There is an extensive menu of meats however I eat what Italy does best and was not disappointed.
