    Excellent experience. Food and service was great. I found a couple of the dishes had favours that were a bit overpowering but what a gem on the central coast!

    A small restaurant with seriously good food. There is currently a set menu (four courses plus three little appetisers). Each dish is an imaginative combination of flavours - e.g. kingfish, squid ink and finger lime. The cooking and presentation are both excellent. The wine list is short but has some gems (e.g., Rockford Basket Press, Amarone Brigaldara Cavolo). The service was friendly and knowledgeable, and the dishes were nicely spaced so that we were not rushed. The only downside (for an oldie like me) is that there are no soft surfaces so the noise level is quite high.

    We had a wonderful meal last Saturday night. The food was amazing, the service professional and friendly. The pairing Italian wines were well explained and good quality and each course was also explained on presentation. As it was my birthday, without requesting, I was also presented with a slice of tiramisu with a candle. We will certainly be back again.

    Unequivocally the best dining experience we have had for years. A five course degustation with paired wines. Beautifully paced, sat down at 730pm, left at 1015pm. What a pleasure. I almost started speaking Italian. Beautiful decor. Exquisitely presented meals on beautiful crockery, with lots of theatrical flair. Wines served in different high quality glassware for each course. Friendly diligent waitstaff. Open viewing kitchen with an inspiring head chef who obviously brings out the best in his staff. The vibe between staff cannot be faked and shows that they are a real team who enjoy each other's company. It's not cheap...but as they say...you get what you pay for. It really is worth it. Thankyou so much. Ian and Libby.

    This was our 3rd visit to Osteria il Coccia. We have enjoyed the whole experience immensely each time. We always sit at the chef's table closest to the kitchen as we love to watch Nicola & his staff work away in the kitchen. The food is always innovative & delicious. The recent decor update has added a slightly cosier vibe. The new chairs are super comfy. Staff have always been very friendly & attentive It's a pricey night out. With the current set menu including an average priced bottle of wine we paid $250. It is our go to place for a special occassion

    It is great to have a high-quality restaurant like this on the Central Coast. While the choice is limited - a 5-course set menu - all the food is excellent and there is a lot to eat. The wine pairing is also interesting. The husband-and-wife owner / chef / front of house makes this a personal experience - and a very enjoyable one, too.
