Excellent find on a side road of Manly beach! Small, humble but absolutely superb food & atmosphere! Such a welcome surprise to stumble across! Food was absolutely delicious & very reasonably priced. Loved the genuine service & small family atmosphere. And byo! Would highly recommend!

Not very impressive. Looks like a cute little Italian restaurant, but the food was too simple. I could make it better and more interesting at home. I have been to Italy and this pasta does not come close to Italian food. The pasta was a bit over cooked, the sauce tasted like something you get out of jar at Coles, no veggies at all in any of the four different dishes we ordered. The carbonara did not even have real pancetta, and lacked pepper. The gorgonzola sauce were blend and was only pasta and sauce, no meat (neither did any of the other dishes have any meat or veggies, except the carbonara with poor bacon) I would not recommend this place if your looking for good Italian food.
