    I come to il solito posto several times a year, being Italian it's one of my faves. I love to dine downstairs before a show and it feels like I am in Italy. Service is fantastic, food is fabulous and I always look forward to the dining experience. The grappa menu also delights! Recommended this gem to many people, look forward to the next time, big shout out to the whole team! :-)

    My server was just so so lovely. She seemed happy to be there and gave several suggestions or recommendations when I was unsure. Spectacular food. This was a great great meal.

    Lovely service, our waitperson was informed and managed her time well. She knew the specials and ensured I snared the last Barramundi before it was snapped up. Thank you.

    Was recommended to your restaurant and you didn’t disappoint. Our meals were full of flavour, fresh and tasty. We just kept wanting more. Our main meals were a stand out. The meatballs were wholesome, warm comforting and crazy delicious. But my question is why is the chorizo pecorino risotto not a staple on your menu. Never have I had a better risotto - and the fact the flavours were punch, rather than subdued left me wanting more. I would travel back from Brisbane just for another mouthful. Absolutely outstanding in every way. Amazing staff, and we spoke to many other diners who come at least one a week - I can see why! 10/10 - A+++ Well done and see you again soon!

    Fantastic spot to eat. Everything we tried was cooked beautifully with lots of flavour. Highly recommend the dessert menu, it is a must have and is not to be missed!

    Had dinner on a Tuesday night with a reservation at 8pm. Food was decent and came out quite quickly, however felt quite rushed by the waitress who seemed to be in a hurry to get us out of there and wasn't very friendly.
