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.

    Good vibes, great wine list and friendly service. I can't believe other reviews saying portions were small - by the standards of a proper Italian dinner they were actually on the large side. My only complaint is the food was a bit on the rich side

    We chose this restaurant for our birthday celebration dinner, and were the first to arrive as it opened for service. All the tables were beautifully prepared, draped in white linen and set with elegant cutlery. Even empty, the restaurant felt warm and inviting with ambient soft lighting and cheerful music. The smartly dressed staff made us feel welcome and relaxed, and were always nearby ready to attend to our every need. The waiter helped us choose our wines, which went very well with our meal choices. First we feasted on the finest freshest Tassie oysters, marinated olives, smooth mozzarella with fresh pesto, lovely gooey burrata, with fresh figs and heavenly tasting black garlic atop antipasto sauces, mopped up with soft juicy olive focaccia. Each mouthful was a wholly satisfying and pleasurable experience! The Angus beef was a quality tender cut cooked to perfection accompanied by a small side of purple carrots, we were in feast mode so ordered a side of potato’s which were abundantly served with roasted garlic and herbs - simply delicious. The barramundi was also cooked to perfection and a satisfying portion, complimented by a tasty creamy sauce that just took it to the next level of yummy. The gnocchi was outstanding with a melt-in-your mouth texture, and the soft light pillows were contrasted with very small cauliflower florets that still had a bit of crunch. Really impressed with this dish as I don’t usually enjoy gnocchi. The birthday cake we brought was delivered promptly after clearing away dinner and setting for dessert. The waiters enthusiastically sang a quick happy birthday (sounded great!) and the restaurant atmosphere felt cheerful and respectful. I love this place so much and can’t wait to go back and try more of the amazing menu!

    The actual food was tasty. Servings very small and expensive. Our 1st waiter became quite frustrated with us when several questions were asked about what was in some of the dishes on the menu. A subsequent waiter and waitress were lovely. From receiving our 1st orders our main meals took a long time to appear, one of which could have been hotter. Wine list was extensive but expensive. We have certainly had better experiences else where, this was disappointing.

    We sat at the bar, which was fine (and we have done so many times in other restaurants) but were disappointed by having to sit on bar stools rather than a bar chair with a backrest. In a restaurant that markets itself in the manner of Locale, something better than a simple stool should be provided. Apart from that, the food was excellent and the Amalfitano drink was exceptional. The girl mixing the cocktails was right on her game. We also enjoyed the wine. Overall it was a great experience but the seating at the bar needs to be improved.
