We came as a family of four before a concert... checking TA before we came for recommendations of a place to eat. Well, this restaurant was just wonderful.

Delicious food again with wonderful flavours. Nonna is lovely even though a little forgetful with orders but that's part of the excellence of this little gem.

This is the best pasta place in the Newtown / Enmore area. All their dishes are lovely. The staff are very friendly - they make you feel very comfortable. We've been to this place so many times. They have us hooked. We will keep going back. They are BYO as well.

The food was delicious, staff very friendly, quick service too. Went there before a show. Hubby had seafood marinara - he couldn't find it on the menu as names on menu in Italian - had a good laugh with staff trying to pronounce it.
