Came here with another couple and had a wonderful meal. The veal Milanese was very good as was the Penne Carborana. Staff very friendly and service better than standard. We did get her early, so were seated and fed quickly and as we left the...More

When we went, it was after 6pm on a working night, so the place wasn't crowded. The food was fantastic as it was cooked well and tasted great/presented well. The service wasn't over the top fantastic, but was decent. Some dishes are expensive, so not...More

Lunch for the family on a busy Sunday. Restaurant was over flowing. The wait staff kept up with everything and maintained a good sense of humour. The food was as good as you'd expect with a packed restaurant (possibly a little microwaved). Reasonably priced. Not...More

This was a return trip for some of our group as they had enjoyed the food a great deal. The food was very good. Very accommodating for the Fodmap eater in the group (no garlic/onions). Excellent service. Would go again.

Extensive menu, catering for everyone. Staff were attentive, friendly and extremely helpful. Gnocchi was home made and probably one of the best I've eaten, delicious with a creamy chicken and mushroom sauce. Price was average. Great view over the harbour. Worth a visit.

Since this is part of a chain of restaurants, my expectations weren't too high. We picked the place because I generally like Italian food and it doesn't get better than a Mission Bay location for dinner on a warm summer evening. Turns out that the...More
