Amazing food!
Service was a bit slow to start but our server was also bartending, as we sat in a bar Corner table.
Nicole made our pitcher of sangria and it was soooooo good. The Best we've had out to dinner. She was very pleasant snd very knowledgeable.
We were served hot bread before our fresh salads arrived. I had the lobster ravioli and he had the chicken canaloni. Both were to die for! The ravioli could have been a bit larger portion but honestly. .. thats everywhere. We shared a tarmisu for dessert snd you could tell how fresh it was! New favorite date night place.
The atmosphere was warm and cozy. Familys, friends, co workers - you could tell this place can be for all.
The owners were walking around and in and out of the kitchen making sure things went smoothly.
I was impressed as was my boyfriend.
Will def be back! And I highly recomend you go visit!

Wow! Here's a great new italian restaurant in Dunedin. Our visit was with friends who live only blocks away, so we thought we'd try it out for our evening meal. We were not dissapointed. Our waitress was attentive and knowledgeable. The selection on the menu was quite deep with a nice assortment of pasta, fish, and meat dishes. I had a really wonderful veal saltimboca. My wife had a lovely seafood pasta flavored with white wine and garlic. The selections were all very reasonably/inexpensively priced and included a salad. The olive oil dip for bread was also very nice. We were all too full to try desserts, but hope to return for more. We met the owners on our way out as well and they were great folks. Highly recommended!

Nice value here, traditional Italian. Freindly staff and a nice atmosphere. More wine sauces than tomato based.

This restaurant is quite new and an excellent addition to Dunedin's restaurant offerings. The four of us all had pasta and we were all very happy with the food, portions and service. The Dunedin raviolli was fantastic. The bottle of wine we had was very good and reasonablt priced. Service was very friendly and prompt. This restaurant is one of Dunedin's finest reataurants and has a very comprehensive menu including steak, chicken, fish, lamb and of course, a fine selection of pastas.

When we sat down, the restaurant was far from crowded, yet it took over an hour and a half to get our food. Once we finally got our food, after threatening to leave, it was terrible. The gnocchi tasted pre-made with sauce that taste like Ragu. One of the members of our party ordered linguini, which came out without any sauce. I would never go back!!
