Having been a diner at this restaurant for lunch and dinner infrequently but over a period of many years it is a pleasure to see the maintenance of quality and its special ambiance. One new feature that did not impress was the architectural treatment of its street front.

We were lucky enough to get a parking spot opposite. Parking can be a bit of a problem at this end of Fitzroy St.The service was excellent with the menu being expertly described with a large number of specials. Although there is nothing particularly fancy about the food it is just good flavoursome Italian food.
