Awesome linguini di mare (one of the flag dishes since 1988, 39AUD) and a perfectly balanced french rose the waiter had recommended. Excellent service.

Very good Italian food - can't fault it. Staff are great and service was perfect - attentive but not overly so. Highly recommend if you love Italian food with an unusual twist.
