We had a lovely lunch and our waitress Amber was outstanding! Very attentive and very lovely to my 2 year old granddaughter.
Amber was unaware that my granddaughter has a chronic illness and that sometimes it’s tricky for us but her kindness made the experience a fabulous one for my family.

Being Italian, owning and cooking food in my own restaurant years ago and very fussy when it comes to Italian food, this restaurants food and service is amongst the best in the world, and I have lived and eaten in Italy, this is true Italian food and the pizza pastry is to die for. Cant wait for my next visit there.

It was a busy night, food was good, but service a bit hit or miss. Wine delivered to table, but no wine glasses and had to wait for them to be polished (not enough of them?), and we had asked for 2 bottles for the table but had to ask 3 times for the second bottle. Wine glasses later cleared with plates, but we still had wine in the bottle. We didnt see wait staff again once dessert served. No checking on extra needs or drinks etc.

The service was impeccable, we never had to watch around waiting to re order drinks or anything, the staff were friendly, amazing and on the ball the whole time. Food was great to top it off, atmosphere is perfect for a nice dinner and would honestly recommend to anyone.

First time to dine at TIFP and the food was amazing. The service and the staff was equally amazing. Love the desserts. Could do with more alcohol selection though.

Unfortunately it was quite noisy and crowded which disturbed the rustic vibe of the restaurant. However, this seems to suggest that the restaurant is super popular! And I can see why, the food was lovely and service was great.

Very disappointed. Asked for table water and got still water and charged for it $8.
Red sauce used for gnocchi and margarita pizza was tasteless and sloppy.

Really the perfect place to bring the family (or in our case, two large dogs) for a gorgeous meal of pasta and wine in a lovely outdoor courtyard.

Great food, ambience, price, service and convenient location for our family get-together for several combined birthdays. Staff were attentive, helpful and friendly. Food was great, from the different pasta dishes, pizza, osso bucco, organic chicken ..I could go on. Went on recommendation from friends who have been before and will go again.

My husband and I were looking forward to a lovely, relaxing dinner for two on Friday evening, but were very disappointed.

The food was ok. Nothing out of the box, but fine.

When we arrived, we discovered that our booking only allowed us to stay a maximum of 90 mins.

We felt so very rushed! We had a waitress asking for our order within a couple of minutes of sitting down. Our entree was on the table within 10 mins. We had barely finished the last mouthful of entree, plates were cleared and mains on the table. At this point we had been there 30 mins. I had to sit and watch my main meal go cold because I just couldn’t eat it so soon after entree. There was someone standing, watching and hovering the whole time, so that they could clear our plates. We had someone coming to the table every few minutes. It was most frustrating.

We were walking out the door one hour & ten mins after having arrived, relieved of $120.

We also didn’t appreciate being called “darl” by a waitress young enough to be our child. That’s unprofessional and in fact, rude!

We will not be back!

Waitstaff were very friendly and helpful. Food was great, a little on the expensive side though. Nice for special occasions.
