“an absolute Gem!”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

one of the friendliest homely restaurants i've ever been too, the hosts make a point of ensuring you feel welcome , the food is excellent , the Chef Patron "Vincenzo" is a charming host, all pasta's are homemade,and Paulo the manager will ensure that you receive the best service, a nice touch is that they remember your name on return visits and always welcome you as part of the family, great restaurant, child friendly, an excellent venue for conferences, parties and weddings.

“Year End Function”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

I have been here several times over the years, and it is one of my favourite restaurants. Simple, casual with great food and service. Whether we have booked out the place, as for a Round Table function or just the work xmas party, it is a festive venue.
I recommend the lamb shank. cooked to perfection....

“Bellisimo!! Wonderful, dinner in an Italian setting.”
Reviewed February 1, 2013 via mobile

Having lived in Italy, I missed the face brick homes and tiled roofs. This restaurant venue offers fresh food and a good ambiance with great value. The menu is succinct, ill admit it doesn't offer regional favourites or items you always find in Italy like squid ink pasta or buffalo mozzarella pizza, however you will have a delicious wood fired cooked pizza; fresh egg pastas; risotto and gnocchi. The food is delicious, very speedy and the setting plays for a good evening with friends or a romantic dinner. Desserts are limited, not italian, no gelato or italian café. Do make a booking on weekends and sit outside if its a warm evening. This was a good find and I will deffinately return.

“Excellent Italian”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

We live very close to this restaurant but never thought of trying it until i read great reviews on tripadvisor. We went on a wednesday night, i thought it would be dead but it was pumping. We really loved the food, from the free capaccio to the greek salad, ravioli, fettucine agnella (lamb) and tiramisu. Prices were reasonable and service friendly. It is lovely to sit out on the terrace on a warm summers evening. We will be back!

“Best restaurant I've ever been to”
Reviewed December 25, 2012 via mobile

Everything Is outstanding; food, wine, service! I think they probably aren't even charging enough for what you get. Family owned restaurant and they live to make their customers happy. Highly recommended!!
