“good food good atmosphere”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

Ate here on a saturday night in july with family. The food is standard pizza restaurant fare. Kids had pizza which they liked ,wife had lasagna which she said was good I had veal parmigiana which was a bit dry and tough. The prices are reasonable. Special mention to our waiter Steve who managed to remember 8 peoples orders without writing a thing down, you earned your $10 bet.

“Great Pizza but avoid the pasta”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Fantastic pizza and good atmosphere, open late for after movies but avoid the pasta at all costs - microwave style pasta food , you could cook better at home, and if you are used to real Italian food ( eaten in Melbourne) - don't bother. had to send food back to the kitchen when I was pregnant came out under boiled and then they microwaved mass purchased ravioli - inedible

“We visit all the time!”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

John and staff have basic good quality Italian food locked down here. Prices are reasonable and food quality and quantity both generous. It's always busy for a reason!

“The servers were great”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Oh... the food was so bad. Good try. Poor execution. The servers were very sweet about not charging for my mushy cold salmon, without a crispy crust as advertised. The salad that accompanied the salmon was so sweet you could have had it for dessert. My friends lemon thyme chicken was boiled, and the "salsa" made with "fresh herbs" was grey. Not green. Her "grilled" zucchini was raw. (no grill marks) and her sweet potato puree was half pureed and half chunks. No flavor.....We waited all day for our night out, and didn't have lunch as we wanted to save our appetite for a special night out to Ballarat. (We live 50 km away). I sent mine back. She ate the chicken. The servers were sweet enough to only charge her 1/2 price. The restaurant is very run down and the hallway into the restrooms was very dirty and in need of painting. Not a pretty restaurant. We were headed to one of the pizza restaurants but they had an hour wait. This restaurant needs a Chef in the kitchen monitoring what goes out. They were not busy when we were there.
