Visited Montalto as we were stay at Quarters in Flinders (hotel) some 7-8 k away. Had booked the the Restaurant over the phone but as the sun was shining and we saw the piazza with its lovely view we thought better to be outside and were not disappointed.

Having previously had a wonderful experience dining at the Montalto restaurant, we decided to go to the Piazza Cafe for lunch expecting a similar experience. However we were very disappointed especially because of the extremely rude and terrible service! Firstly the supervisor literally threw the menus on the table at us and walked away without any welcoming greetings. After taking... More

It's such a shame. The wine tasting was great. We were served by a lovely happy fellow. The food was simply fantastic- all the produce straight from their vege gardens. Dessert was fabulous - and a refreshing change at $7 instead of the usual $15. It's just a shame that the staff let down the great food and wine. The... More

This is a great setting, with very good food (starters from about $9 and top priced mains $40) and enjoyable local wines. Outdoors overlooking vines is shaded and has great atmosphere. Really good for couples, families and fun groups. The thing is the service is not good enough. Friendly staff but meals did not come together, drinks took 15 minutes... More

Nice casual lunch at the Piazza cafe, pleasant staff, decent choice on the menu, can't fault anything. The sculpture walk is worth doing too.

Gosh the foh team have absolutely zero training and with no manager in sight, what a weird experience. You don't mind slow or non existent service so much when it's busy but 3.30 pm on a Saturday, you'd expect more; dirty plates all over, customers waving down staff or going directly to the bar for service and the team mostly...

We arrived for lunch after the Redhill markets on a Saturday and the place was humming. We only had to wait about ten minutes for a table which ended up having the best view in the house. Whilst waiting we tasted some wine and all was right with the world. The place has a great vibe, but the service is... More

We visited here with high expectations. Scenery was stunning, with a sense of tranquility and peace. Started with the wine tastings and even purchased a bottle of basil infused oil ( which was Devine ) ... this place was certainly ticking the boxes ...but .. After a 20 min wait for a table ( and that was at 12:00 noon... More
