I could not rate this restaurant highly enough.
The staff were absolutely lovely and everything was very timely.

I would definitely recommend coming here! :)

Been there few times and always had a good experience.
Not this time; the pot of seafood was far too hot and couldn’t eat it; after 10 min I asked to change the plate so I could at least taste it. No apologies from staff. They just changed to a ceramic plate.
Bit disappointed

It is little weird dining in isolation times but the staff were lovely, the food was great and it was so good to catch up with someone I hadn't seen in months. We had a great night.

This was amazing, I was having a lunch for my daughters and daughters in laws, I do this once a year.

The staff were wonderful, meal was great and we just had a great time. No one was hanging around waiting for us to leave, which was appreiated.

Great food, great night, but we just didn't get asked enough for drinks, we had to call someone over for them mostly, could have been more profitable for the restaurant had we been asked more.
Also annoying that we couldn't get some entrees as a serve of 4 as most tables are for 4 people, so had to get 6 (serves of 3), just putting this out there. they were delicious though

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Great service, garlic pizza is worth another visit. Polenta with mushrooms was one of the tastiest veg options I have eaten in a while.

Excellent venue with good menu. Food was great with various options including Gluten Free pasta.
Wine list was wide and varied with many options to choose from including a range of cocktails.
Sunday night Jazz band was fantastic. Not too loud but certainly worth listening too.
Highly recommend this as a great dining experience.

Not the first time we've been here but the first time in the "new" room" and we found it peaceful and with plenty of room around us. Menu seems to have changed since we were last there and definitely for the better. Loved our eggplant polpetti but my calamari was disappointing. The actual taste was beautiful but the calamari was tough and chewy, not that the chef would necessarily know as I assume you can't tell before cooking.
My tasting sweets platter was really to die for and I would absolutely recommend that to others who are sweet tooths. I chose a Rose that I didn't know and didn't really like it but you learn from your mistakes.
Overall a really pleasant evening and this is a restaurant we keep returning to because the welcome is warm, the service is efficient, the food is good and the prices are reasonable. Thanks guys.

The staff at L'Artigiano made every effort to accommodate all our needs and were polite and friendly and patient. The service was well timed and the food delicious. We enjoyed having a separate room for our group of 8 so that the whole group could chat together without too much ambient noise. The limone gelato cocktails were worth trying!

My first visit to L'Artigiano. We were a group of 7. The food was delicious but took over an hour to come out. There wasn't a lot offered on some of the dishes - you would have to buy a side of your choosing. The overall ambience was lovely. Would've just been nicer to eat a little sooner but this could have been an issue because we were a larger group? Would be interested in going on a Sunday to listen to the live music

We visited here with a small group for our second visit. The food was again sensational. The service was great, much better than our last visit. The menu has a good selection of modern Italian dishes to choose from and the wine and drinks menu is extensive. I will definitely be back again to enjoy this lovely restaurant.

Nice decor and atmosphere, quiet and pleasant. Food was quite good, serving sizes were a little small for the prices. Service ok, not as engaged with our needs as I would expect - we asked for a little bread for our child, were told there was none but we could order a $14 pizza if we wanted bread. Then someone else gave us some (fairly ordinary) bread anyway as a standard part of the meal (not in response to our request, more that the first staff member appeared to either not know about the bread, or preferred to sell us something more expensive). We asked for a jug of (tap) water, they gave us a glass of water (and yet water jugs were given to neighbouring tables). General perception that good service is dependent on how much we spend.

Lovely restaurant with great ambience excellent wine list and delicious food. The only setback was the service was poor. This may be because in my opinion they were under staffed. I would return but would hope either the service improves or they staff the restaurant properly. Overall despite the staffing issue it was a great restaurant
