My friend and I dropped by for dinner few days ago, food was delicious - I can say it was a mix of classic and modern Italian flare. Service was attentive and helpful. Will be back again soon.

Started with the Bean pasta soup Which was nice creamy taste. Makes a nice change from minestrone. The lasagne was beautiful well worth the visit prior to the opera house which is only 2mins around the corner.
