    Unfortunately, The food is very low quality. The entree's we had seemed like they were out of a freezer bag. And the pasta dish reminded me of a .99c packet pasta. The gnocchi was quite chewy and the sauces were over all, very bland. I'm glad we got 50% off. Definitely won't ever go back, and would never recommend the place.

    Quick, friendly service. Pasta was great, could take or leave the garlic bread. Reasonable wine choice. We went mid week so it was pretty quiet for in service dining - plenty of takeaway trade though which we took as a good sign.

    The food was below the standard of what we would make at home just on a weeknight. For a soft drink I was given a can with a plastic straw. The waiter didn't know the difference between a carbonara and neapolitan sauce.

    The restaurant was quiet on a Sunday evening. Our party was seated promptly and orders taken. We had antipasto, pizza, pasta and a few meat dishes. All were satisfactory but not outstanding. Good value given the half price special.

    It was nice to try, thanks to the special offer. The service was great and the food was okay. There are definitely better Italian restaurants at a comparable price in Canberra. Would I go back again? Probably not given the quality and value for money.

    The lady that served us was pleasant & polite. However we cannot say the same for the food. My husband ordered the entree which was calamari, it was dry & there were eight pieces on the plate for a cost of $17. What a rip off. My son ordered the pepperoni pizza which came out with olives on it!! The pizza was ok but honestly we have had better.

    Just a decent place to go but not amazing we had the fish and chips, pizza and garlic bread. Their chips are really good, the tropical pizza is great but the pepperoni pizza is not classic pepperoni and the capricosa one is just okay

    Food was ok, Average Ambience. Friendly Staff. They need more skills to cook Italian Food properly. Over deep friend Arancini Balls. The Pizza was amazing; Full of Flavors.

    Waitress did not speak English very well. No clean cutlery offered after entre (we were expected to hold onto the soiled cutlery for our main course). Airconditioning did not seem to be working properly. This may explain why we were one of just two couples that dined in while we were there - and that was a Saturday night!

    Close to Kingston Foreshore this excellent restaurant is overlooked by too many people. Terrific value and great food make this a place to consider when looking to dine in Kingston.

    It was quiet for a Wednesday night and service was prompt. The wine list is small and a little confusing as the italian rose turned out to be a red. The olives for the entree were pitted, not my preference, and the meals were of a good size.

    The risotto that we ordered was mushy and overcooked, however the service was friendly.

    Despite giving our 6:30 booked table away, the staff quickly rectified and apologised. Food was appropriately portioned, and good quality. Enjoyed the dinner but the large family group booking of >20 altered the expected atmosphere. I would choose a later booking time, next time, to avoid the small children.
