Italian
We are proud to be the Central Coast, Italian wood fired dining.
We showcase what food has the best to offer, when cooked over our wood charcoal.
There is fire, flames, smell of smokiness coming from the grill.
We source the freshest ingredients, organic when possible, from local farmers and producers.

We want to bring you, the best of our both countries, Italy and France.
Big Boy cooks from memories of his grandmothers rolling the pasta in the kitchen. He remembers them cooking the best lunches for him when he was going to school. 
I dearly miss my beautiful France and would like to share my two favourite regions, Beaujolais to The Rhone Valley where I grew up and the South West where my mother lives. I invest my time looking at the new generation focusing on smaller production, organic or biodynamic, respecting the terroir. I also spent my holidays in Italy with my uncle, the wines on the list are all the memories of my childhood.

Food was extremely fine! We loved all the dishes, starting from the fresh bread and creamy butter to the delicious tiramisu and mouse desserts. Highly recommend.

Menu could cover more pasta type dishes, drink service could be improved, although staff were trying

Dear Toad, I am sorry to hear the drink service was not at the top. May we ask you what did not go the way you expected for your drink service? Thank you for your advice on more choices for pasta, we make our dough every day and roll our pasta just before service. We are not focusing on pasta, as we are not a pasta bar, as well the space in the restaurant. We offer some proteins and the big Bistecca as our speciality. I appreciate your comment and we will make our best to try extra variety.

Beautifully wood fire oven cooked, Italian food. The steak is a standout. But we’ve been there 3 times now, and nothing has disappointed! And the bread with hay smoked butter! And the risotto! It’s all great.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant. The food was outstanding as was the service provided by the host and wait staff. As we were there on Father’s Day, we had a set 4 course menu which was not only delicious but represented good value for what we were served all of which appealed to everyone at our table with a great mix of different flavors. Highly recommend

One of the best dinner I had on the Coast for a loooong time! The food was amazing, very tasty, very delicate, very well presented, absolutely delicious. A little expensive but totally worth it.

Unfortunately we had a very poor experience at this restaurant. It was their opening night and the service was a complete disaster. We waited 30 minutes to receive our water when we first arrived and another 40 minutes to receive our wine. The wait staff were all very pleasant but seemed oblivious to the fact that the entire restaurant had no meals or beverages and there was a lot of disgruntled patrons.

The menu was based on their wood fired cooking, however we found that all our meals (once we received them after waiting for 1.5hours) were on the side of burnt to a crisp.

I will not be returning to this restaurant.

Dear Customer, We are very sadden to hear this. As you said it was our first night and it is always very difficult to deal with a first night opening. We really care about our customer and really would like to offer you to come again and try our food and wine. Everyone needs a second chance. Please contact us on via email from our website contact and we will do our best to get you a happy guest. Believe that behind a bad review they are staff and families that really get hurt.
