Food was average and price was high. We went there about 8 pm Wednesday. There were only couple of tables having dinner.

This is the 2nd time we have been here. Previously about 6 years ago. Still fantastic food, wine, service, atmosphere. This is the real deal without being in Italy propa.

Ample sized portions and home made pasta. The wine list was also very good and reasonably priced. A very good meal without the hustle and bustle the esplanade dining experience!

This restaurant serves great food. Shield Street is a mall in areas and a wonderful place to stroll along. Sit outside the restaurant and enjoy your meal. Dont forget to go back again!

In a city awash with "restaurants" this small Italian restaurant is quite good. The staff are great and the bruschetta is top notch. A lot of locals go there, which is always a good sign.
