    The veal was delicious, and so perfectly cooked. Would highly recommend it. The entree tasted ok, and the portions were generous, but the dishes were’t hot by the time it was delivered.

    Best garlic bread in the whole wide world! Perfect place for a nice evening dinner. Great atmosphere and fantastic menu. I would dine again, just for the garlic bread!

    One of the best veal ribeye I've had - crusted and cooked perfectly. Unfortunately the scotch fillet was a bit tough and the gnocchi overcooked. Had a few of the entrees and all good. Service was very good - attentive. Big let down was the 20+ minute wait for the Torta Con Le Mele (apple tart, cherry) dessert.

    My husband went there with colleagues before and he loved the food there so he took us to try with the fork 50% off deal. The entree arancini and croquet were nice, kids margarita pizza was amazing; however the mains were really disappointing... my salmon was over cooked which was like very well done, I was happy to eat the sides like carrot purée and grilled brussels sprouts but the salmon itself was dry. My husband ordered gnocchi which he already tried before and he really liked it, that’s why he ordered again; however, the gnocchi wasn’t good at all this time. The texture was too wet, the flavour was very greasy, the whole dish was like soaking in the oil... so we had to give them the feedback cuz we knew it was a good dish but just didn’t cook right. We ordered the dessert apple part afterwards, I had to say it was amazing great! The tart pastry wasn’t bought in, very nice and crunchy. They toasted the pastry first then put in all the fillings like custard, cream, roasted apple... soooo good. And they offered the dessert for free to apologise for the gnocchi. Food wise, I’ll go back to give them a chance to try other dishes. Service was a gem! The team members were efficient and attentive and very friendly, even when they dealt with our complaint, they were still professional so we didn’t feel awkward. It’s a restaurant that I’d like to go back. Just hope they can take the feedback in and improve the dishes and it will definitely be an awesome place to go to.

    Nice restaurant, food was great and the service was friendly, the only letdown was the Focaccia, that was more like a bread with garlic.

    Great service, highly attentive staff. I ordered the Angello forequarter. Tasted lovely, slow cooked well. Although dish was meant to contain pinenuts. There were none. Aranci osso bucco was delicious. Mum and Dad ordered the pork sausage pasta dish. Way too much pasta. Could have done with half serve of pasta. Spinach was also quite sparse and it was a little dry. Leave the price of the dish, but half the amount of pasta. Otherwise, I enjoyed it.

    The food was pretty tasty and the servings were pretty generous, however there wasn’t that much meet on the Rigatoni and the side chips were a bit undercooked. Service was a little slow as it was a bit busy, but I would still give it another try.

    The menus are really hard t read because of the faded text color. Also the menu when placed face down on the table look like a placemat. You have to pick it up and turn it over to discover it is a menu. The same on the menu link on the google places, thought it was a picture and never clicked to the second page to see it was the menu. We were also provided a 30% discount for booking a table on line. We were going to eat there anyway so did not need the 30% discount to make a booking. We appreciated in anyway. Great food but the experience could be much better.
