Our waiter was hard to understand and he left or finished his shift half way through our evening. This meant no other waiter specifically looked after us. We waited ages for our desserts to be take and had to call a waiter for drinks. It is fairly expensive.

·Dined on 16 December 2016

This is the third time we have eaten at the Restaurant and it did not fail to please us again in terms of the food and wine. We were a party of 6 people having a Christmas get together as well as celebrating a 70th Birthday. We did find the restaurant a little noisy but for the time of year and good cheer around that is to be expected. Due to a misunderstanding one meal order was incorrect but the matter was rectified without quibble and the correct meal provided speedily. We enjoyed a Sicilian Pinot Grigio with our food. Staff were most pleasant and friendly. We will be back.

·Dined on 19 November 2016

We had read some poor reviews so were a little nervous coming here with our friends. Although we made the table booking well in advance we were taken to the worst table in the restaurant. Next to a very large group in a walkway. We asked to be moved to a quieter area and ended up sitting next to the cold meat cabinet. In spite of that bad beginning we had a great night. The service was excellent and food delious. A little over priced for a cafe but a great night.

·Dined on 2 November 2016

Food didn't really live up to the promise and price. I had a pizza and it was OK - bit sloppy and not really all that exciting and in the end just fell a bit short of what I think ought be delivered given the prices. I ate here with six others for a work dinner - cost abut $80 a head including a few beers and a couple of bottles of wine. Good service and atmosphere though.

·Dined on 28 October 2016

Went for brunch and was so glad to see some different items on the menu from the standard Eggs Benedict and big breakfast you see everywhere else. The food was delicious and reasonably priced and portion sizes were perfect.

They seemed understaffed with only 1 waitress and 1 barista on the day we went, so getting a second round of coffee or paying the bill took a while. Not a sticking point though and would definitely come back... that cabinet of pastries, cakes and baked goods is WAY too tempting!

·Dined on 12 October 2016

The menu had changed since we last ate here and the food was beautifully cooked, with fresh ingredients and plenty of flavour. There were four of us and we shared a Napoletana pizza followed by four different entree sized pasta/risotto meals (all exquisite!) We shared two desserts and I'd have to say the Sinfonia di Cioccolato was out of this world! The service was friendly and attentive and as usual, it feels like you've had an authentic Italian experience.

Not the best night we've had. Food ok, service poor and not really a great spot for dinner. Lunch would be a better option as the atmosphere with the shop would make it a better experience. Parking is good. Service was slow, waiter didn't know the menu well and had to come back a check. Wasn't aware of items no longer available which led to a delay due to reordering.

·Dined on 24 July 2016

I would say the staff were overwhelmed. Maybe someone was off sick. We arrived early with a booking and were told to wait while a couple without a booking were seated prior to us. I had to ask for a seat for my friend who was on crutches as the staff were not worried about getting our table ready for us to be seated.

The service was poor, our order not taken properly and we waited a very long time for the wine., and we are still waiting for our water.

Luckily the food was excellent, thus saving what could have been a disappointing visit we travelled an hour to have lunch, so the yes or no about would I recommend it is a little hard to answer.

I probably say, go for the food don't expect great service.

·Dined on 23 July 2016

Disappointed by the service. Was really slow and staff did not look after our table very well. Felt a bit neglected. I just sat at the table by myself with no menu, no staff asked if I would like a drink or water for 15-17 minutes. Finally my guests came and took staff another 10 minutes just for water. so 25-30 minutes!

I note the table either side of us got more attention even though they didn't arrive till after. Constantly had to watch and try and get attention of a staff member just to get served.

·Dined on 22 July 2016

I had heard the food here is great but the breakfast choices were slim and the granola + stewed mango + chia seeds that I ended up going with was just awful!!!! No flavour in any of those components - not even a sweetness in the mango! The service was dreadful too! The place was pretty much empty yet the waitress (who never once smiled) couldn't bring herself to check on us to see if we wanted a second coffee or more food etc. I had to walk up to the take away counter, wait my turn and order another coffee there. What a huge disappointment. Perhaps the lunch and dinner menu differ and are possibly better as I've heard, but what a disappointment with the breakfasts. My friends ordered the avocado on toast and while it was generous there was really nothing too it! Italians really need to learn how to do brunch and brekky better and not have such a service attitude! (I'm Italian so I can say that). I would also recommend the owners visit some of our City's better brunch venues around the inner city especially, to learn how to build the right ambience through great service, great food and a smile!

We were all pleased to try a restaurant in the neighbourhood with easy access and off street parking. The evening was very enjoyable, the food was excellent and the serving staff were wonderful, not intrusive, but attentive at the right moments.

The wine waiter, was terrific. He knew the cellar and he was informative, we all appreciated his service.
