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.

The waitress with the red hair was outstanding with banter which suited our table perfectly.

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.

Very good Italian food. Book ahead and expect an inconveniently crowded outside space.

Pizza was OK a bit sloppy as some of the toppings fell everywhere, my wife had potato gnocchi which for a main dish is a very small portion.

Overall it wasn’t too bad, however, we just felt rushed and our food came out really quickly and we just didn’t feel like we were able to enjoy our dinner. When we were ready to go, it took forever for someone to bring us the bill and then when we wanted to pay it took another good 7 minutes for us to get someone’s attention, only for them to tell us we had to pay at the bar!

We had a lovely time in the gorgeous outdoor area and the service was outstanding. Staff are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble. However, the food was nothing to rave about. Everything was nice but not delicious - my hubby was still hungry after his main (pasta) and the selection of pasta dishes seemed to be all tomato based .... it would be nice to see some old classics. My dessert was insanely sweet although looked very pretty. After all that though, we would probably go back mainly because of the atmosphere, friendly staff and location.

We really enjoyed the restaurant, the staff were lovely and accommodating, my 4yr old had a blast kneading dough whilst waiting for his main meal it kept him very occupied.
The staff were helpful and polite, the food was delicious, generous and fast we will definitely be back :)

We went for dinner out with friends, and when we were told we had to leave by a certain time, it put a damper on our experience. The place was so loud that we couldn’t talk to each other. The food wasn’t that good.
