Everything we ordered tasted delicious, starting from the garlic bread, entree calamari, to my Morten Bay Bugs in garlic sauce. I even had a taste of the kids carbonara and have never tasted pasta so yummy. Staff were quick and attentive, food came out very quickly. An error was made with one of our meals, and the owner, came over... More

We arrived on a busy Saturday night without reservation and although busy they accommodated us. Food was great and service was friendly.

Been here a few time now and the food, service and atmosphere in this restaurant is as good as you could ever want. Because it is busy..the advice is to book and get a table at the front where you can enjoy the buzz of Surfers Paradise Boulevard. However if you want it quiet the back area of the restaurant...

Would recommend the pasta dishes and pizza was great. The grilled octopus was very tender. A little noisy but a nice atmosphere with attentive staff.

Myself and my family went for dinner tonight and was very impressed with the whole night. The food was beautiful the ambience was so authentic and the service was first rate. I don't know the name of our host but she was delightful and proficient. Will not hesitate to go there again and will not hesitate to recommend to family... More

Food is always excellent, device is very good and the owner Raph always ready force chat and smile no matter how busy they are. Book as always busy. Bit noisy at times but so many people it is unavoidable. Great place to dine and we are locals so eat there often.

The perfect Italian dinner!! Thanks for a great evening. Pastas and risotto are perfect. Staff and owner work very hard to keep all patrons happy, even serenaded my daughters.

Having been recommended, my food a total disappointment! Ordered fettuccine marinara, pasta ok but the marinara served with empty mussel shells, thick and extremely salty without any finesse and bits and pieces of scraps of so called fish and prawns. "Rehashed from a week ago. Could not finish and left more half! Not so Italian!

Hi Barry, Thanks for the review. So sorry you were disappointed in your meal. Would love to have known on the night so we could've had a chance to prove the recommendation was worthwhile. As much as possible, our meals are made fresh. We don't buy-in pre-made Lasagna, Schnitzels or seafood mixes. Even our kids meals are real chicken and... More

Excellent Italian restaurant. We didn't make a booking before we went there but didn't really wait long for a table for two. The steak medium was proper cooked and really thick, which gave the steak different layers. I like the seafood set the most (even though I don't remember the name), side with bread. It's really convenient cause it's right... More
