It says it in black and white, you get a free meal for your birthday. Ordered the eye fillet. Mind you they have 3 variations of this on the menu, when they found out it was for the birthday meal, the waitress had come out and said they had run out of fillet. Of course I didnt believe this for... More

We just had dinner here at "At Fernando's" and I could not be happier. The food was amazing and the staff were delightful!!! The pizza is to die for!!! We aren't the easiest customers either we have 3 young children and the staff offered colouring pencils and gave them a specially decorated gelato after their meal!! We will be back!

We had the most pleasant meal for our 3 year anniversary. The food was beautiful, great quality and wonderful cocktails/ wine. The service was exquisite, so attentive and friendly. Easily accessible by public transport. Could not recommend more.

We booked on a Friday evening and ordered the garlic pizza to start which was undercooked. We also ordered the pasta and meatballs, the meatballs were not very nice and the pasta was undercooked. The calamari was to salty. We were disappointed as we had read the reviews saying it had nice food.

We got there early so we could get a table we wanted and take our time, but from the first 3 minutes it felt very rushed. The waiter was trying to be funny but was borderline snide. The food was ok, but you find many more better. We wish you well.

The food is pretty good - better than average Italian. But it's expensive - e.g. $30 for spaghetti marinara. It's also quite noisy when there are a few people there - tiled floors and tables close together. So conversation, even between two people, can be not so easy.

We had been there before and had had a very nice meal. We returned for my birthday (they give you a free main) and were sadly disappointed. Positive things were that they did gluten free without a problem and the waitress initially attempted to be helpful, although her speech was heavily accented and we had some difficulty in communicating with...
