    The set menu was really generous. The option of gluten free pasta was nice. I just wish the pasta dish had a bit more flavour, a bit sinple, it was lacking a bit of punch, maybe more spices or sauce and some Parmesan cheese will have been nice too. Overall a nice restaurant with good ambiance and friendly staff.

    As a quiete person I loved the fact that wasn’t a big crowded place or noisy, instead it was so intimate and relaxing place where to have an amazing memorable dinner, it is definitely one of my favourite places in the area for sure now, we enjoyed, food so fresh, just small portions for the pasta which as an Italian I love my bowl of pasta quite big😁 but next time I will let them know; Service friendly, polite and very aware. Beautiful Italian place in every kind of ways.

    Food was excellent and service - 5 stars Wine was also great but it would be good to have wine prices more transparent. Overall would highly recommend

    We were welcomed into this quaint restaurant like old friends. We instantly felt comfortable and at home. The service was excellent. Fare of the day explained by our waiter, wine menu splashed on the wall. Great quality ingredients sourced from well known areas. The stand out for me was the fungi risotto along with cannoli for dessert. Perhaps not overly generous serves for the average Aussie but definitely spot on for those who have indulged in real Italian dining culture.

    We had a lovely celebratory dinner at Rina’s this week. We couldn’t have been looked after any better. The food was outstanding and interesting and we all enjoyed the evening. Would thoroughly recommend!
