Noisy authentic Italian cafe. Our squid was cooked perfectly, the salad fresh and crisp. We will definitely return

Coffee was not that good however; the big breakfast was good size and good quality food although a little expensive.

Food was ok... nothing outstanding. Rather expensive for hit and miss dishes.Staff - probably snr member family owner - was too attentive, bordering on intrusive to guests trying to enjoy each other's company. Not bad, but no real pull to return.

First time back here in over 20 years Quality is just as good now as it was then. Service is fast and courteous, menu selection is expansive and quality is good. Salt and Pepper Squid salad was fresh, squid cooked to perfection and salad fresh. Sweet chilli chicken focaccia was excellent. A good experience for a casual lunch drop in!

Ate lunch here on weekend and ordered the gormet pizza and had a half an half which by menu looked good. However the pizza was really flavourless and bland. Service was good though.

12 of us went after church on a very busy Sunday at Glenelg. They reserved a table for us out the back. All meals were excellent ( had pizza, steak, calzone and chips and nuggets), too much for 8 young adults to eat. And price was very reasonable. Will be back again.
