The pappardelle and beef ragu was really good. Nice vibrant feel about the restaurant also. Service was great.

The service was excellent and the food amazing. Always book it gets very busy.
We had the fresh homemade pasta, the ravioli stuffed with pumpkin and the tagliatelle with beef and ragu.
If you want an intimate meal for 2 ask when you book for a separate table or you may be on the long 12 seater table in the middle where different parties all eat together.

It was a Wednesday night dinner for 3 at 6:30pm for us. We enjoyed the novelty of being the first customers to arrive...I love this because it means we get awesome, attentive service and we beat the noisy rush hours. Staff are quite pleasant with excellent knowledge of their menu...early arrival enabled them to give us a nice unrushed explanation of the dishes...this did help our choices. The calamari was a delicious, well portioned entree, whereas our other entree was more of a taster...exquisite, sublime flavours but pricey...c'est la vie. Mains were well portioned. We highly recommend the pasta dishes...homemade pasta with very flavoursome sauces deserving of their reputations. Deserts were rightly reviewed as "divine". The ambience and decor make for a classy but relaxed dining experience. Add to this 2 italian beers ($18) and 1 bottle of cheap wine...only $55! and the whole evening came to $266 for 3 of us. We had a lovely memorable night but we might leave this place to all you gazillionaires out there. The wine list actually left me speechless for a while...and I don't mind paying, but....!

Another restaurants so dark its impossible to read the menu... it was lovely that the waitress then took time to read it all out to us, but due to the poor acoustics & thick italian accent she couldn't be heard or understood anyway... Honestly overall I did not enjoy my time here, I wasn't in the mood for pasta so I ordered the Manzo (steak) which was tough and chewy, and arrived 5 minutes after the rest of the tables food arrived. My husband didn't love his rigatoni, said it was nothing special. The calamari entree also average. We spent $400, we had to scream to hear each other and it just wasn't the sort of intimate, italian dining experience we were hoping for.
