“Good value traditional Italian restaurant”
Reviewed December 15, 2011

This is a no frills traditional Italian restaurant. The food is very good, prices are reasonable and the portions generous. The service is generally very good, but can be erratic if the restaurant is very busy.

Although the interior could do with a revamp, it nevertheless has a charming atmosphere.

Wil definitely visit again and again.

“Great family restaurant...”
Reviewed May 23, 2008

Great family restaurant that we have been going to since 1982. They used to be in Blairgowrie but have moved to Ferndale in the last couple of years. Still run by Giulio and Danielle Broccardo and staff that have been with them for years. Great food and great service!
