    Evening out with friends, five of us in total. Very pleasantly surprised on entering as had not been for many years. Fell in love immediately. Our waiter, Brendan was fabulous, professional and has a sense of humour. Oyster shooters were a huge hit as were the Margarita's. Bowl of mixed olives also went over well. Mains were all enjoyed very much and the wine chosen and suggested by Brendan paired well with both seafood and beef cheeks. All in all, everyone agreed that it was a spectacular evening. Cant say enough about the styling and comfort. Will definitely go again, even though it is a bit of a trip to Mooloolaba. Thank you for providing a really classy venue.

    Absolutely wonderful restaurant. Luckily, we were seated near other couples there for a special occasion, as, despite the website advising dress code, this didn't seem to be enforced and others were there for a more casual experience. The food, the wine and the service was impeccable. We will return

    First time customers, had the 4 course tasting menu. Great table away from the noise. Squid ink risotto with seared scallops was delicious, pumpkin tortellini was undercooked and chewy, sous vide beef fillet was bland and dry, chocolate nemesis dessert was the star of the show. Service was adequate, prices were disproportionate to the meals and beverages. Bella Venezia failed to impress us.

    Thought we’d try this place out on our last night in town, it was very busy each night. Unfortunately the food was not hot, was ok for flavour but not outstanding and the bill was a lot for average Italian food. The desert (tiramisu) was brilliant.

Quality is amazing! Our 4 course set menu was so delicious, delicate, filling, full of so many flavours and delightful! Service was so friendly, warm and very attentive to our every need. Thank you to all the staff 👍
