    Beautiful position but understaffed for the Sunday lunch crowd. Four main meals were eaten before the 5th arrived! We were compensated but it was not acceptable

    We were pleasantly surprised by this cafe - the Italian food was absolutely delicious. The mostly international staff were friendly and good fun. We’ll definitely return!

    I recently booked a table of 10 for a friend's birthday party. We were late for the booking time due to traffic congestion. We were extremely grateful that the restaurant staff were very patient and very considerate. Even though we have lived in the city for 30-50 years, some of us have never been up to the North Head and have never been to the cafe. We had a wonderful time at the cafe with a view over the North Head. I am sure we will bring our friends, colleagues and international visitors here in the future. Thank you!

    I could smell the aged seafood coming from my pasta marina as the waiter placed it in front of me - a $10 fast food takeaway would have tasted better however I paid 3 times the price. There was too much marina sauce, possibly to try to disguise the seafood which if served the next day may have resulted in illness. No spoon came with my dish, and it was hard to get the waiters attention who was lovely, but too busy. Luckily the coffee and dessert from a limited menu selection were good, though I shared my friend's favourite dessert because I didn't see anything I personally preferred on the menu. But the waiter didn't tell us about the additional large selection of desserts on display at the counter which we saw when we took the bill to pay at the counter.

    The view is priceless but unfortunately the food was disappointing and expensive. We don't mind paying for good food but when the quality isn't quite there, it is unfortunate. However the staff was friendly but service slow, probably because it was very busy at the cafe.

    The ambient noise level with other boistress patrons is a problem. The use of some soft furnishings to deaden the sound level would be good.

    One of the best views in Sydney with short, and long, walks to work off the fabulous food! Friendliest service and a good menu to suit everyone in our group ... adults, children and vegetarian. Beautifully prepared and presented Italian from primi to dolce. The views to the city and South Head are amazing and you can stroll for 20 minutes to magnificent lookouts or take many of the longer walks to explore North Head. We will definitely return, and bring new guests to surprise with this gem!
