Cosy restaurant with excellent homely Italian food. Good value for money with a range of wines at reasonable prices. Superb attentive service.

Food, service and ambience is good but a bit pricy. Do try the Grandma’s cake and the unique Tiramisu when it’s available!

Locally inspired Italian fare cooked simply and well. Small team of 3 and waiting time for food could be slow. Rowdy due to small size of restaurant and would not recommend for intimate dates.

If you’re flexible with timing, there’s always a table in this quaint cosy place. Been coming here for years and it’s safe to say, one of the best comfort food joints for us. Wines are very well priced and the selection and recommendations don’t disappoint....More

We had the yellow tail cappacio from their daily special menu and mushroom soup from their usual menu. Then we ordered risotto and Australian tenderloin for main courses. All of which we like very much and we will go back again to try other dishes....More

Husband and wife, Oscar and Tracey does everything,. That is all you need to know. She makes the recommendations, and he cooks to perfection. Perfect if you want somewhere quiet away from the crowd.

Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful
sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling
sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its
blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an
Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit
almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony
continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to
the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill.
