Why didn't we go on previous experience? Locals love this place, so we gave it another go. FAIL!!!! Crammed, hot, loud, lousy food & the usual Bunbury, inexperienced hospitality staff. Maybe we have high expectations, but being expected to pay such high prices surely the food could be near worth it. NO. A little effort could go a long way. Train your wait staff, & maybe some Italian cooking classes for the chef's wouldn't go astray. The Freddo Frog with coffee didn't make up for a bland, boring meal. Won't be visiting again.

Had lunch off the 'new' menu. I had a meatball pasta dish which was huge, and tasty, though they must use the same sauce as the Lamb Shank dish because there was a chunk of shank fat in mine! Husband had snitzel which he said was nice. The chips were yum.
All in all a tasty lunch, which is what we've come to expect from this great restaurant! Staff were lovely and helpful.

The mrs and i found this place on trip advisor. We headed in pretty early around 6:30ish., We were immediately greeted by a waiter as we stood outside looking at the menu..,we found the time we rocked up was perfect as later on it got really busy!!...Our entree (bruschetta) literally was in front of us within 5 minutes!!., and it was amazing!!!!! Our mains turned up quick and the first words that came out of my partners mouth after tasting her main was "feels like I'm in Rome again"..I unfortunately couldn't talk as I was smashing my down!! We had just come back from rome and let me say the food here was just as amazing! .. The waiters were all friendly, profeessional and extremely efficient, especially Shannon..it is a bit expensive but definatly worth every dollar!!..Love the place, love the food, love love love WA :)

We celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary here and the meal was simply wonderful. We were escorted to our table by the window and the waiter went through the specials with us and then gave us our menus. We had our drinks order taken and they arrived promptly. Our meal orders were taken shortly afterwards and they food was simply amazing. My steak was cooked perfectly. The prices were reasonable for the portion sizes and, honestly, I had a hard time choosing what to have, it all sounded so yummy.
My only complaint would be that the restaurant is slightly cramped. It's clearly very popular and I think it would be better if they could move to larger premises.
