“Only Average”
Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

It was located close to where we were staying so we gave it a try. Entrees were ok. Service was ok. Mains only average. What we didn't like was that we didn't get a choice to add cheese to our pasta dishes as they came with cheese whether you liked it or not. Steak source was ordinary. Only go if you are hungry.

“The best authentic Italian in Launceston...”
Reviewed December 28, 2013 via mobile

Delicious meals, reasonably priced and BYO wine is a bonus. The homemade tiramisu is amazing. Spaghetti Pescatora is a favourite. Not fine dining, but still an enjoyable night out.

“Good Italian Food”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

We had dinner here one evening without reservations. They were very busy but had a table on the landing available. We got the newbie waitress and we did the best we could. She didn't know the menu well and it was her first day. She was svery nice and apologized. I had the seafood pasta and the wife a ceaser salad. The food was pretty good. Would go back. Make reservations first.
