“Great local Italian”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

We shared a starter salad with tomato and boconcini followed by veal scallopini and the spaghetti Neapolitans. Everything was excellent. We shared our mains and the combination of one pasta and the veal was great. We enjoyed each dish. Service is excellent and prices reasonable. They are BYO so we picked up wine on the way. Great cozy atmosphere. No reservations.

“Brilliant little Italian Restaurant”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

This is what good restaurants are all about. Small, personable, and with terrific food at sensible prices. No bookings available - just turn up (and be early). Located in Whistler Street near the Council Chambers.

“Lovely atmosphere”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

This place is great. It's chilled out. Cheap (for Australia). BYO which makes it cheaper. The decor is minimal, which is also a nice change - as everything else in Sydney is overdone. Staff were actually Italian not Australian, hence better service and some geniune smiles. Loved it.

“Superb, classic Italian - great find!”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

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!
