    Great food! Try the zucchini flowers & John Dory. Fantastic. Service was attentive, friendly and efficient, especially since it was just after after Covid-19 lock downs.

    Machiavelli delivered excellent food and lovely service as usual. The atmosphere is warm and tables are well spaced so that conversation is always possible. Very enjoyable.

    Excellent service and speed. Food was with us very soon and was absolutely delicious. The waiters/waitresses were always nearby so it was no problem getting their attention. The beef was especially good – perfectly cooked for someone that likes medium-rare.

    The demographic is 60 year old business men there for a long lunch. I wouldn’t go back. However, it is true that the food and the service is good to excellent- it’s just not my style

    I went here for lunch with a few friends. The food and atmosphere were great for a workday lunch. Service was very quick. For me, I don’t think it was particularly good value (one beer, one glass of wine and bowl of pasta for $70) but apart from the price everything was very good.

    Always a favourite. The antipasto plate is a classic. Tried some vegetarian ravioli today and it was really good. Atmosphere and service always both top notch!

    Excellent everyday Italian food- second visit and will go again. Perfectly cooked calamari, generous prosciutto and mozzarella, wonderful duck papardelle, gnocchi Gorgonzola and veal scallopini followed by a really good trio of cannolis. Limoncellos to finish the dinner- attentive staff and reasonable cost considering the serves and quality of fare.

    Serving size is way too small. I was still hungry after the meal. It is just ridiculously expensive restaurant. I don’t really recommend it to anyone unless you want to get ripped off.

    The staff are professional and give great service whilst still being friendly and obliging. Food is consistently good. Spinach and potatoes are delicious!

    Excellent spot for a high quality business lunch. Really recommend the food and service. Be prepared to spend some decent dosh, but well worth it to entertain clients or shout staff a special lunch/dinner
