    The setting was simple, elegant and inviting. The staff attentive, knowledgeable and warm. The food was perfection, the menu flawless, ample choice without being overwhelming. It was a pleasant experience, my partner enjoyed being able to dine and talk comfortably. I will be back with my friends and family.

    Under the covid 19 circumstances the staff did an amazing job to serve you in 90 minutes and still make the evening enjoyable. The food was excellent

    The updated menu continued to impress, service was good as always. Doing their best to adhere to the govt COVID19 restrictions with handsanitizers and spaced out tables. Only complaint it was a little cold, the heating could be turned up especially with the cold draft from the front door.

    What a lovely way to reintroduce myself back into the world of dining out! So much care and consideration has gone into making your customers feel welcome and Covid safe! (Can't believe I'm even saying that!) Food: AMAZING AS ALWAYS! First night out in months. Chose Postmistress and didn't disappoint as usual! Thanks & see you again soon! :)

    The staff were nice but it seems like postmistress are struggling to make the environment in the restaurant natural with limited patrons. It was cold in the restaurant and the choice of music and spaced out tables made it feel like a high school prom where everyone was waiting for someone to come pick them to dance. The food was ok. Very disappointed with our takeaway desserts. I left feeling like I should have just saved the money and stayed home.

    First time there heard fantastic reviews from other members of my family and friends had to try it did not disappoint. The taste and the portion and the quality of the food was excellent the only criticism that I could possibly have is the service could’ve been a little bit better and the liquor selection was minimal. In saying this looking forward to going back.

    A true neighbourhood gem, always our 'go to' local restaurant for special occasions. The service and food always delivers and our request to sit away from the front door was met. Though the menu is delicious it would be great to see a few more changes on the menu now and then. I miss the quatro formaggio pizza. None the less what is on offer is always fresh and cooked to perfection by the authentic Italian chefs. The wait staff here are the best as well, always friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Love this place! 10/10

    The food was delicious, and the staff were super friendly. The dining room was decorated nicely, but was very open and so lacked intimacy/felt exposed.


    Hi Megan Thanks for dining in at Postmistress during these difficult times, we greatly appreciate it. In regards to the open space, unfortunately due to Government restrictions, every table must be 1.5mt apart and the capacity of the rooms are limited so we had to remove tables to accommodate these regulation. Hope you understand why it felt open

    I came with my daughter to celebrate her birthday and we both enjoyed our meals very much. The service was good and friendly, the prices reasonable and the atmosphere/design made it possible to enjoy conversation as well.
