Description: Casual, Fine Dining Offering outstanding value and quality, casual Italian cuisine, in ITALY is an expression of Chef Mario Caramella's own personality and culinary tastes. With full culinary and creative control, in ITALY is the realisation of a dream Chef Mario has quietly nurtured over an impressive 30-year career spanning Italy, Canada, UK, Hong Kong, Australia, Thailand, Indonesia and Singapore, where he was most recently Chef Patron at the award-winning Forlino Restaurant. Taking the cue from Chef Mario's warm charisma and welcoming nature, in ITALY combines an ambience of comfort and style designed by Chef Mario himself to inspire good times with great friends. A trio of communal tables placed at the heart of the restaurant, for example, beckons as an area to gather, mingle and share in the convivial spirit that defines great Italian dining.

We ate for just over 200 dollars, three courseS, nice bottle of organic barbera, and coffee. It was fantastic. The meat was extraordinarily tender. The service was excellent. This is a brilliant restaurant and we'll be back again and again.

Yes, except for the calamari which tasted ordinary (dipping sauce is nice thou)...our squid ink pasta, aglio olio, roast chicken, chocolate fondant are all delicious treats.

Service is somewhat patchy (hope it is an isolated case), we ordered one chicken but came two & one of our pasta dishes took quite a while to arrive.

I would return to try its other courses.

Price is approx. $50 without drinks.

I was there with my wife sometimes, because we work nearby, but only for lunch. We always choose the set lunch, which is a very good choice. It changes every now and then and always has been good.

Very recommendable.

Chef Mario's food is definitely worth splashing out for - his flavoursome, carefully sourced and well conceived dishes are genuinely reminiscent of a trattoria. Service is always top class too, even when they're busy, and it's good to see Chef Mario chatting to customers (though we're not sure why he avoided our table - perhaps a preference for monied regulars?) The outside area is lovely, but would really benefit from being fully non-smoking as smoke has a habit of billowing across on the balmy evening breeze and spoiling the delicious fare. The atmosphere inside would also benefit from the aircon being set somewhere above freezing; and subtler lighting. All in all though, highly recommended if you fancy treating yourself.
