Description: An authentic Italian dish always starts with the best flour, garden fresh tomatoes, and the best quality local produce. Then of course matched to a great wine. Sound simple ... We make all our own pasta and sauces from scratch , in the traditional Italian way. Our restaurant also features a glass fronted air-conditioned wine cellar where we have wines from all over the world including some rare vintage wines from local private cellars.

Really enjoyed trying the seven different beers. The ginger beer was especially nice and would also recommend the light lager, very good for a low alcohol beer. Wash down with a tasty beer in the bar - yummy.

The food was not fresh. The pasta tasted like it was at least a day old. Over priced and lousy pasta. The pizzas were great though, but the lousy pasta bought the whole feel down.

Had reservation for 8pm, were not seated until 8.45 only die to the fact we insisted on getting a table as there were empty tables and couldn't understand why we were still waiting.
Food was terrible - much better food at Harrigans.
Staff were unfriendly and service very poor..

We visited the cafe with some friends for lunch and it was fairly average. We all had pizzas and none of which were anything special. It wasn't a bad experience but don't think id go back.

Tourist trap. Food was small servings and not well cooked. Calamari was edible but soggy, roasted salami was horrendously overpriced at 16 AUD for approx 1 AUD worth of meat. The cashier added up our bill incorrectly and when we pointed this out to him he tutted and snorted in our faces!
The cellar door next door was a breath of fresh air with some tasty offerings. However the 2 servers there were obviously paid on commission - and didn't even try to hide it!
