The decor is like a restaurant in NY, Melbourne or Europe and they have added detail with sophistication yet it appears simple and sleek lines with subtle lighting that gives a great atmosphere. There are different areas to sit from the bar to lounge, table seating or a small outdoor area.

Possibly the best Italian I have enjoyed in a long time! Food was amazing and the staff were so welcoming and very very very kid friendly! Wine list out of this world! If in Noosa a must go!

All started well but then the mains took 40mins to come, it got very hot & noisy at the back of the restaurant where we where seated & then the main came with chilli having asked if it could definitely be without. Disappointing finish +++. Maître Di was forthcoming in embarrassment - apology.

Food was good quality but the main course
Was cold, wine was good, service excellent.
It was very noisy and hard to hear conversations.

Had a reservation for 8pm and were not seated until 8:30pm. The waitress dropped the drinks on us at the bar and she apologized and that’s ok. The round of drinks on the house.....I will cover the cost of getting our shoes cleaned. The restaurant advertises pizza in the menu on the front window. That said you cannot order pizza in the main dining room at night. This seemed crazy. When manager came over to talk He laughed at us and walked away. Avoid. Overpriced and arrogant

We are fussy Easter’s but this menu had numerous appealing options that even after three courses we can’t wait to return and try other dishes. Please change the music. I’m sorry to say it sounded like 1 or 2 artists for the lunch duration which we found too niche but everything else was wonderful that we tried to ignore the tunes.

The best restaurant in Noosa. Every dish was outstanding, including the best steak I have ever eaten and two world class desserts. Waitress Ash was a jet, as were all of the very hospitable staff. A must visit!

Very nice beautiful restaurant, cosy table, food was great, came quick, service was ok, but very nosy place as restaurant was very busy. Had to speak up so my hubby could hear me 😉 Good selection of pasta and pizzas for kids if you need family dinner but I would not recommend for romantic dinner coz of the noise.
Crispy skin duck was on special that night and was very nice, would recommend to try.
Also had an unexpected Happy Birthday song with a special dessert from the team which was very nice and thoughtful 😊

First date night 🙂 so the ambience, privacy and noise level were important.
Very good. Our waiter was exemplary and his suggestion for wine was spot on. Very good service.
But my Zuppa de Pesce was a let down. I had a lobster leg (I think) which was rubber - inedible. Overall taste was ok, but not memorable.
We both had Castelli as an entree, very nice, but why don't chefs cook Broccoli until it's cooked? Hard broccoli is not enjoyable.
If I win her heart, I will return with her for another beautiful evening.
Oh, talking to her later in the week - we both had upset stomachs the next day. 🤔😞

9/10 for an overall rating! Not a 10 purely for the very small reason of having our dishes delivered too quickly between each course,making it feel we were eating too fast though was not a rushed experience. Great friendly informed helpful service. Fantastic wine and cocktail list, food was super delicious and flavorful. My Barramundi main was yum, however was on the very close verge of being under cooked, I thoroughly enjoyed it though! Would highly recommend! Not kid friendly.

I contacted this restaurant prior to attending as I have allergies. They said they could accommodate this and to mention this on the night which I did. However after eating the food I was told was safe, it did contain the things I am allergic to. I have spent the last two days in bed in incredible distress due to the reaction. Also on the night, we found the staff to be uncaring and were uncomfortable, feeling like a point of gossip amongst staff. Extremely expensive, awful experience.

Excellent variety of beautiful food. Lighter share food for lunch or pizza. More hearty food for dinner. Not to mention dessert! Friendly service with a quaint formal atmosphere. Will definitely be back for that special occasion.
