This is a little gem! But the food is big in taste. I don’t think I have come across better Italian cooking ...! I had a rice ball starter followed by a mushroom risotto- sounds fairly standard and bland as a choice but it was anything but. There were many different tastes in both dishes which seemed to hit the taste buds individually. This is definitely worth a visit - and a revisit!

We came here for a quick lunch and left trying to remember if we have had a better meal anywhere else! Beautiful Italian food cooked to perfection. This place is clearly run by people who are passionate about what they do. Can't wait to return for dinner.
You deserve to do really well. Thanks!

What a sweet restaurant tucked away in Warkworth. So nice to have a friendly, homely atmosphere with great Italian pasta. Nothing seems too much trouble and the chef prepared me just what I wanted!
I had a Napoli spaghetti with a twist of extras and my partner had the mushroom and chicken fettuccini.
We both thoroughly enjoyed our meal and look forward to coming back to try the tiramisu!
