“Fine food, good location, pleasant service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2014

We had heard great reports of this place and birthday celebrations gave us the occasion to do so. We left even more impressed than the reports! Attentive waiters met us and showed us to our table which had views to the beach. We were given helpful information which enabled us to make our selections from a menu of authentic Italian delights. The food was excellent both in preparation and presentation. A particular highlight were the flavoursome and complex sauces which came with the dishes. For me, the standouts were the meatballs and the snapper steamed in "crazy" water. The wines were well chosen though a little on the expensive side. The overall cost,however, was reasonable at about $70 per person including the drinks. We will certainly be there again!

“Great service and food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2014 via mobile

Had a bit of a rough start when my envisaged romantic dinner for two was directed to the bar for dinner, so be warned, when you book to state that you want a table. But we had an understanding waiter find us a table and from there we had one of the loveliest nights out we have had in a long time, and it was local!

We shared the antipasti for two which was delightful with a glass of Italian bubbles. For main I had the crab pasta which was light and fresh and my husband had the ragu which was rich and delectable. Our Italian red wine was chosen from a well considered wine list and our waitstaff were friendly and capable.

We will be back.

“Fabulous Friday lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2014 via mobile

We enjoyed a really delightful late lunch on Friday. Sat outside enjoying the lovely view (might be a bit obscured if the mall in front is jammed with pedestrians). The service was impeccable but friendly and ready to explain food and offer advice when requested. The pasta was some of the best I have ever had. Light and perfectly cooked. The tagliatelle was divine and the accompanying duck ragu was delicious. I will always pick quality over quantity. The portion size was just right. You can leave me out of restaurants that offer a mountain of bland pasta just so it looks like they have large portion servings. Not the case here, quality is paramount. We were happily full enough whilst still being able to move after. As an entree we shared a tasting plate of various cured meats and accompanying items (mushrooms, pickle turnips etc). The kipfler potatoes are a must whether or not you think they go with what you have ordered. We have already booked our return and suspect this is going to be a favoured haunt.
Price was good. Not extra cheap but food quality was worth the prices. Our main dish of pasta was $24 as a guide and side dish was $8. Good selection of wines and good atmosphere and fitout. Authentic quality Italian.

“Pleasant meal with friends”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

Had dinner as part of a group of six on a balmy Thursday evening. Staff were very attentive and informative. We shared entrees and the standout for me was the bone marrow dish. Four of the group had the beef rib for mains and although tasty I found mine a little tough. Good wine selection weighted towards Italian wines. One of our group had buccatini pasta main and commented it was slightly too al dente for his taste. Sat outside and the ambience was great. Very pleasant evening with some good food.
