    We have always found this restaurant great from the simple request for coffees to dining on several occasions. Our first experience set the pattern for friendly service when we came for coffee when Podalito had just opened and we were out of service hours. A friendly woman on reception ensured we were served a delicious coffee. Since then we've enjoyed the dinner menu, usually ordering a range of tapas. These are delicious and generous. On this occasion we had so many we shared two desserts, the orange tart and gorgeous do nuts. The service is friendly and efficient. We'll ll be back... and back. Oh, and again.

    We were fortunate to arrive at 8.30pm (after a movie, of which we'd advised the restaurant and had booked a table accordingly). As a result, the restaurant was quiet and we were able to receive individual attention. The staff were very pleasant and unobtrusive. We ordered Greek tapas as we had just been to see the film Maria Calas, and we thought that this was appropriate. The meals arrived promptly and were freshly cooked, which was nice. Would thoroughly recommend this restaurant, away from the 'busyness' of Civic. Barbara

    We walked in and were appalled that this cafeteria called itself a restaurant. Unable to attract the attention of any staff member we left and found a restaurant worthy of the name.

    We returned to Podilato having enjoyed their summer menu earlier in the year. The winter menu was just as good and again, we enjoyed every dish we sampled. We particularly enjoyed the variety in the share plates and tapas. The service remains at it's high standard. We highly recommend this venue.

    Will not be back. Food was so average. My food was too salty and the steak sauce came from a box.

    Parking is an issue because construction is ongoing and parking area not yet sealed and lines painted. Lacking atmosphere. Lots of hard surfaces - should imagine it can get very noisy when busy. Wait staff pleasant but inexperienced - eg, tried to take my plate with knife and fork spread apart, indicating I wasn't yet finished. Food nice enough, but not exciting.
