I was initially placed on a table where rain was hitting us, however, as soon as I asked to move to a different table staff were happy to move us. Excellent food and atmosphere.

Our fist experience of a restaurant serving Christmas lunch. It was lovely but perhaps a little overcrowded. The food was outstanding and the service exceptional for such a busy time.
Thank you

Been here twice before and loved it but 3 out of 3 meals this time were quite frankly, pathetic. My pizza was so soggy I couldn’t hold a piece without the heavy layer of sauce weighing it down. There was barely any lamb on it (was supposed to be a lamb pizza). Marinara and seafood risotto had barely any seafood. When my husband complained, they did add more seafood, but he later discovered that within 2 (of the 3) mussels, calamari had been inserted into the mussel shells instead of mussels. When we complained about the quality of the meals at the end of the night, we were assured by the waitress that she would talk to the boss and get back to us. She did talk to the boss but didn’t come near us again and neither did he. We were left to pay the full bill for a very poor meal. This had been one of our favourite restaurants on our trips to Brisbane but we won’t be returning and will be telling others about this extreme drop in standards for both food and service quality. Very disappointing night on what was supposed to be a special treat for my mother for Christmas Eve.

Always a great experience , with wonderful ambience in a garden courtyard setting. The staff are friendly and helpful. The food is extremely delicious and plentiful.
As well as a excellent selection of wine . Highly recommended going to Angelo’s little slice of Italy.

This restaurant is a must on your 'to do' list. 5 star food in a beautiful garden setting. The staff are friendly and welcoming. The meals are prepared by chef and owner, Angelo. The fact that this restaurant is packed every night is testament to the quality experience.

My partner and I booked to go to this restaurant for our date night. When we got there for our 6pm booking they told us we only had an hour and a half because they had double booked our table. This was not told to me when we booked our table otherwise we would not have booked it. They then took us upstairs to what looked like a function room and placed us next to a table of 21 with a table of 8 behind us and another large table in the corner. This is definitely not the right space to place a couple as there is no romantic vibe in this room whatsoever. The lights were bright, there was no ambience and music didn't play until about 7pm. Had your restaurant put up more photos of this room, rather than just showing the downstairs i would definitely have said please do not place us in your function room. I told the waitress i had celiac disease and we ordered the bruschetta to start GFO. Once it came out we could see it was on regular bread. I told the waitress and she said she would speak to the chef. Apparently, the chef said it was too difficult to make GF bruschetta but he could give me GF focaccia.. how it is "too difficult" to cut up a tomato and put it on top is beyond me, it just sounded like the chef couldn't be bothered to accommodate despite it being offered on the menu. Eventually after about 15 minutes i got my GFO bruschetta. Our mains then took about 70 minutes and the food was average and extremely overpriced for what it was. Once we finished out mains our plates were quickly cleared, we were not offered a dessert menu and had to ask for one after waiting 15 minutes. Once we ate dessert and ordered the bill, your restaurant had the cheek to try and charge us for 2 bruschetta's despite it being the fault of the waitress/chef. I refused to pay for 2 bruschetta's and 1 of them was taken off the menu. Overall we did not have a good experience. The service was appalling and i would have rather save my money
