Didn't plan to go to this restaurant in particular just happened to come across it. Service friendly, food good and ambience okay. Like all the restaurants in Australia very pricey but no more than elsewherefor similar type restaurants in the city.

Great little find! Homely, comfortable restaurant. Pizza's never disappoint, often a small selection of quality Italian Cuisine to choose from also. Very easy to enjoy a few glasses of wine and a pizza or two at Va Bene

It appears that this restaurant is under new ownership. But a great little find. The pizza and beef risotto were both very tasty. Would recommend.
