The service was confusing as we had four different Waite staff none of which knew what had been previously ordered ie: drinks to start with were ordered but arrived after we spoke to the third waiter. My duck papadelle was dry & the arancini balls were mediocre. Unlikely to return unfortunately as we had heard good things about the restaurant. Service needs improvement!!

Service on entry wasn't very good. We where walked around a lot by staff, while lady who did finally greet us was on the phone. Understandably lady was talking with customers but, just a simple hello & persons name will be with you shortly goes a long way.

After a shaky start things turned out well. Food was flavoursome and portions generous. Good variety on the wine list and prices reasonable. All in all I would go back, there’s a lot on the menu I want to try.

Excellent restaurant in recently revamped Mooloolaba Wharf - a real buzz area.

Service was good. Food was lovely, although the calzone special was too cheesy and lacked flavour. My other guests enjoyed their meal, especially calamari fritti.

Two pizzas but the bill was blown out by the expensive drinks. They should offer pichets of wine at a reduced cost.
