Family owned and run Italian food at its best. We very much enjoyed the vegetarian pasta, Italian beer, well crafted coffee and friendly service. A great place to eat on the harbour.

Can't fault the food - pasta perfectly cooked and the chicken special was moist and tasty with a generous serve of veges. Music could be a bit loud for some but the location is great and the staff very happy. Very reasonably priced for the quality.

Coming to Hobart from Melbourne for a family trip we found this lovely little restaurant. The greeting at the door was welcoming. We were seated at the table and menus were already there waiting for us. The waiter explained the specials to us and gave us a few minutes to decide on drinks and food. The meals were lovely. We...

Small 2 level boutique style restaurant. We ordered the breakfast bruschetta and cappuccino with a fruit salad. You could taste the authentic Italian flavours , it was bloody delicious! Small attention to detail with the small drizzle of olive oil over the avo, this brunch made our day. After a 3 night stay in Hobart, this was our favourite place... More

We recently had lunch at the the Harbour Lights Cafe, my wife ordered a scallop pie which she thought was a bit tasteless and I had the open chicken melt which wasn't too bad. Also, I wouldn't order any chips as a side dish as it only consisted of about a dozen chips for $4. Although there seem to be... More

Really comfortable place, child friendly too! Good food and affordable. I had the cannelloni which was pretty perfect, just wish I had have ordered a salad or a soup. Soups looked amazing- much food regret that I didn't get a soup! Kids pancakes were a real winner, love when places put the effort in even for the little ones. If... More

This was one of highlights of our trip to Hobart. We booked an upstairs table and the service and atmosphere were exceptional. We ordered a selection of dishes and shared between the 3 of us, each dish was a pleasure to the palate, we will be back for sure.

Had both Breakfast and dinner at the restaurant. Food was amazing and the staff were brilliant. Sat at a table by the window on the first floor and the view of the docklands was entertaining.
