For the price I expected the food to be nicer. The stuffed zucchini flowers lacked stuffing. Presented nicely though. Fish was a bit tasteless and the Canolli shells were a little dry and stale I thought however the filling was nice. Staff were friendly enough but it was too noisy from the traffic below. I won't go back and spend $90 per head.

Good location and views over the river and South Bank diminished by the noise levels from the city street below.
Attentive friendly service. Good food but not value for money.

We were placed on a round table in the corner but still with a view of the river. As a family group out for a private birthday dinner it was lovely to have separation from other diners. That is one thing in particular that we noted. The tables were not too close together, which is hard to get nowadays.
My wife is a coeliac so having items on the menu listed as GF is a major plus. Having to always ask what is or is not GF makes her feel like she's disrupting everyone including the family/friends she is dining with.
She was very appreciative and surprised that there was a GF dessert option that was different, namely the pistachio and chocolate. It is rare to get interesting and different GF options on a menu. Thankyou. We will be back.

Very nice riverfire night dinner. Drinks service was not wonderful. Had 3 people one drinking beer but waiter still poured 3 glasses of our wine even though only two drinking. We then had to top up our own wine. Food was prompt and quite nice although the squid was very salty and the kale on my main very oily. The porchetta was very fatty and the crackle very dry like it had been finished in dry oven. My friends ravioli pasta was tough. Table service was very nice and the setting was very pleasant. Noise level was high due to party in adjoining bar but we weren’t too bothered by it

We booked in advance from Western Australia on recommendation. Was for wife’s birthday.
We were stuck at back of a large column and lost the view and one of main purposes for dining at this location. We had view of cutlery draws.
Staff attentive for most part. Food excellent. Once our order in and served left alone.
When nobody asked about coffee, desert or after dinner drinks - we left.

Lots of space between tables. Feeling of intimacty on a busy Saturday. Friendly and efficient staff and excellent service.
Very tasty squid ink pappardelle, arancini, squid and carrot cake dessert.
Rest of the menu looked as tasty

Great location, wonderful attentive service and amazing food.
For a first visit this was extremely impressive. The food was well presented and perfectly seasoned to give a explosion of flavour in every bite.
The staff were very attentive without being annoying and they had an excellent understanding of the menu and pairings.
I will certainly be eating here again.

We booked for our 10 year Wedding anniversary after some good recommendations. On the booking it asked for special occasions. I wrote on the form it was our anniversary and requested a table with a view. Nothing was mentioned on the night and the table was towards the back of the room. Don't know what the point of asking if it is a special occasion if nothing is special/different. Walked away disappointed and had dessert elsewhere.

Hi, I know that I have rated everything in the Exceptional range, but it was truly an exceptional lunch date on a Thursday which just ticked all the boxes. Just a small family group of four, a chance to meet up with my two lovely nieces in their thirties and everything just flowed. The wonderful Restaurant Manager Cedric has everything under control and provides the most marvellous service in a thoroughly professional way. I was thrilled that the Classic Ragu remains as a masthead on the menu - and deservedly so. The appointments are sumptuous and everthing sparkles as you walk in to the room. Worthy of the highest praise. Thankyou

Not much choices for food. Just beef pork and fish. Need to have some at least one or two chicken dishes. Even pizzas just plain vegetable and cost lot of money.

I have been to Persone twice and loved it, it was my birthday and my friends organised a surprise desert to come out at the end of my meal and the staff had written 'happy birthday' in chocolate, it was a nice surprise and a great way to end a meal.
