Have been a few times and service is always lacking - slow, and not terrible engaging.
Food availability from menu hit and miss.

Service was bad, staff didn’t seem to care. Drinks were warm. When we mentioned our drinks were warm we were just told that the fridge was playing up but no compensation. Took a long time to clear the table for desert, we had to clear the last bit by ourselves as the waitress just disappeared. Each time we were looking for service staff were just standing behind the bar talking to each other.
I really used to enjoy this restaurant and that’s why I decided to have my birthday there but after this I probably won’t go back and neither will the rest of the family

Great food and overall good experience. Open restaurant and can get very hot in summer. Could use a fan or aircon. Other than that I would recommend to friends.

Service was good, only complaint would be the table we were sat at was directly near the the Pizza oven which made the experience uncomfortable given the heat the oven was generating, it didnt help that it was a humid day

Good food, reasonably priced, prompt service, noisy due to music and patrons, disappointed a pizza was going to take more than an hour due to a party arriving after our booking...so had to change our preferences...know in future to go across road for pizza...

Only downside was that we were there for pizza but seated in the sichuan side which felt a little weird. I don't think there wasn't an option on the online booking to choose which you preferred. Food and staff were great as always though.

I have been to Violetta many times before and absolutely LOVED it - food and service fantastic. We decided to bring friends who were visiting from MEL to Sichuan Bang Bang and whilst the ambience and service was good - we were so disappointed with the quality of dinner that night. The duck pancakes which had been highly recommended - were lovely but there was only a very small portion of duck. The chicken noodle dish was so heavily laden with sauce that the noodles and chicken were drowning. Such as shame as we had been so looking forward to dining there and I am not sure I will be rushing back soon.

Online booking service was easy and dual options of Italian and Chinese food meant that everyone was happy!- 4 young kids and 4 adults. The wine list was varied and inexpensive and overall good value for money. Love the share style food for relaxed dining at Sichuan Bang Bang

Great local restaurant with flavoursome food - fresh flavours and good variety in the Menu.
Music however was too loud for general conversation .
You don't want loud beats with trying to speak with friends and eat.
Service was prompt and friendly.

Menu options great. Have had the same dish at One venue. Then the same dish twice at another venue ( on the same night "under ordered") and found the variation in quality a little bit of a concern (the second was noticeable better than the first). If they could maintain the consistency in the menu this would make this venue a magic restaurant in Brisbane. The staff and services was very professional.

Delicious food, except for the crispy beef, which was quite strange (not crispy). Quite expensive, but worth it. Good staff. Very fast service. Lacking in ambience on a Saturday night - very hot inside.

Food was great - tasty and beautifully cooked.
One of our party needed a seat with a back ( as opposed to the stools that were set for the tables of 4) and this was provided immediately.
I wonder if the settings are comfortable enough for older and less agile and flexible diners? Most people would prefer not to sit on a stool. The 'booths' with the more comfortable seats were restricted to 2, so 3 of our party of 4 had to make do with stools.

When we were there the male waiter had absolutely NO idea how to take an order ! It wasn't hard Two calamari to start followed by a duck and pizza for mains! Explained it three times!!! Still got the duck first, then calamari then pizza at the same time! Heh guys this is basic wait staff skill! Also the calamari was almost inedible it was so salty! Won't go back in a hurry! It's a shame as Wilston Village needs some great restaurants ! I had been there three times before and it was 👍 don't know what's happened in meantime!

The food was great, however the lack of waiting staff is a turn off. I felt sorry for the waiting staff, they were rushed off their feet, the guy next to us had to ask 3 times for his wine, and we had to ask for cutlery twice. As I said, food great, but need to employ more waiting staff for weekends

We have dined here a few times before and on a hot night we were looking forward to a cool, alfresco dinner. we didn't get our outdoor table (probably booked too late) and instead we were seated inside, which was so hot I had sweat dripping down my neck. The doors were all shut and the aircon couldn't cope. I sat there the whole time wishing someone would open up the doors and let some air in!!! Not keen to return during summer if it's going to be like that again!! Food was good and service was fast.
