The pizza dough was over proved
Pasta was under cooked
You used garlic salt which was way to over powering
Pizza was cold
Service was really good but I won’t be going there again

Our friends from Queensland heard good things so we bought them here, the boys went half in the $89 brisket meat platter which was just a giant t-bone, they said the meat was cooked well tho! But $89!!!!! Came with 4 boiled carrots and a few potatoes! My friend ordered a very long named fancy pasta which ended up being macoroni and cheese covered in raw garlic, she actually could not finish it! My pasta was ok! We ordered a second bottle of wine which didn’t come so we cancelled it! Our waiter was awesome!

Looking forward to a nice meal and one of our dishes was served cold. Disappointing since there was not many people in the restaurant and they rushed the cooking

Love TIFP but this was not one of my better experiences. Hopefully just the dishes we chose were not as good as others. Also the music was way too loud, was very difficult to hear our conversation.

Absolutely loved it here. The food was fantastic quality for the price and the service was amazing.
The only thing I could fault is they only have a very small selection of cocktails, and most are wine-based.

This is the go to location in the south west. They do everything right - the food, atmosphere, drinks and now social distancing :-) only issue is how popular they are - you always need to book. Because they’re the best

Really pleasant dining experience overall. Great food. Are happily planning to return soon. The only downfall was leaving our doggy bag of pizza behind for the next day and only realizing when we got home 20 mins away! Next time :) Thanks TIFP!

We enjoyed our lunch. The waitress was pleasant and endeavored to be helpful. I am always surprised when a restaurant runs out of two bottles of wine on their own wine list before the major trading days of the weekend. I can understand the late delivery of sea food and hence not available for the lunch serving. However don't understand why they have not briefed wait staff to tell lunch customers and so avoid the whole order reorder business. We were given some complimentary Limoncello which was a nice thought.

Portions have reduced in size.
The topping fell off the pizza.
It was very busy, so it was very noisy due to events being held at the same time.
Staff were super friendly and helpful as usual though which was great. They look at the kids and provide dough to help entertain them.

Went here a few years ago and loved it. Not sure if menu has changed - food was average. Staff were rude. The music was so loud - not appropriate for dinner. Asked them politely to turn it down twice - finally on the third go it was turned down to a reasonable volume. I’m not one to usually whinge about music level but it was ridiculous!
Nice for a big family bash where you’re happy to yell across the table and eat mediocre Italian food.

We had a lovely lunch & food was absolutely delicious. 1 staff member was outstanding friendly & very attentive - however 1 was a little bland & we felt a little. Uneasy with her. But overall it was nice & we'll be back thank u.
