This is the first restaurant I have been to where the wait staff do the up sell before viewing the menu. Just as we sat down the waitress asked if we wanted a mixed dips. At over $15 we said no and then looked at the menu. We then ordered a bottle of wine, of which the barman raced to our table to virtually throw half a bottle into 2 red wine glasses. This was most bizarre and unsettling to say the least. The worst part of our dining experience here was the poor service. The way that table items were moved around to make things fit, slamming down the ice bucket on the ground - All this added up to a crappy dining experience. The food servings were ridiculously large, but unfortunately resembled stodge, which is not my memory of Italian cuisine. For over $200 for 4 people there will be much better options locally. Definitely cannot recommend this place at all.

Came to Trinity Beach for a week, so looked up a few reviews to find good places to eat. This one looked ok, and I thought we were lucky to have it just a couple of doors down to our apartment. Unfortunately, the food itself was so disappointing.

My friend and I got a pizza each to takeaway ($23 for something the size of a medium!), and they we're both thin, dry and chewy. It was like they were trying for Italian style, but the crust had the taste and texture was more like it was made for someone who was gluten intolerant. The cheese was rubbery, with no smooth stringiness to it, and the shredded ham was cheap and nasty.

At the time of ordering, the waitress who served us asked if we wanted to add a pasta or bread to the order for $10. My friend and I looked at each other for a second or two trying to decide and the waitress made a comment about it only being an extra $5 each (and hurry up). I'm so glad we decided not to and didn't waste any more money here.

For quality of food, this place gets one star from me. The other star is for the cute deck that looks straight at the beach.

Great little restaurant on the beachfront with good varied menu. We ate here with friends twice during our stay at Trinity Beach and also had a takeaway. The takeaway menu is excellent and was very popular with a waiting area to have a drink or two. Good atmosphere and reasonably priced.
