    We were very happy with the quality of food and the restaurant was beautiful presented. The lovely young girl that served us was just a sweet heart who deserves aknowledgement for her service efforts, she was fairly young but smiled throughout it all and never got annoyed with any requests like young kids do these days. We will be back again. Thank you.

    Found this little gem of a restaurant in the local neighbourhood! Had such a fun night! Live music, great food and a really friendly and vibrant atmosphere! The singing chef is also the owner and she is a very talented young woman. Highly recommended. We’ll definitely be back!

    What a gem! Excellent food, pleasant staff, decor superb and the best thing to round it off was the entertainment. The owner and chef comes out to sing amongst the tables. There is also an artist singing all the time while dining. Lovely family owned and run. Mum works the register, Dad works front of house and the young daughter and also the owner and chef cooks and sings. Well done guys!!

    Great food, service and entertainment. For such an unusual location it’s a wonderful surprise to get such quality. It’s a credit to the hard working owner/entertainer.

    This little restaurant was recommended by a work colleague. My adult son and I thought the food was outstanding! We tried the gnocchi, garlic pizza for our entree and cannelloni and Margherita pizza. We over-ordered! This was really filling! The live music and the opera number we were privileged to hear gave my son some appreciation for the music I love. Thank you for bringing some Italian warmth to us. We will definitely be back!

    We 4 friends enjoyed a beautiful birthday lunch, the service and food was excellent and they were more than accommodating for vegans, which is always appreciated. Loved the singing very much, what great ambience! We will be back!

    There was zero social distancing the restaurant was packed & the singer was so loud we couldn’t really hear each other. The main spaghetti & meatballs & Carbonara were like kids portions and we are not big eaters, we were shocked barely much pasta at all very disappointing

    Good atmosphere, definitely loud when people sing, so request tables far if you need to talk. Food was good, wouldn't say great but definately above average. We asked to swap spinach for rocket on one pizza which they did. However for the other pizza, the menu did not mention any leafy greens, but they served it with heaps of rocket which the waitress said she could go and remove.
