    This place was great!! The service was excellent. It was my first time going and didn’t know got to order, and the owner herself told us how to order everything and why it was done like that. The best pasta I have had in a long time. Very nice setting with heaps of carparks around as well.

    The food was really delicious and the staff were lovely however I do feel in terms of service, our order came out later than others around us. I have a feeling something may have been missed or forgotten which is why, however, we did have somewhere we needed to be and that set us back a few. We were also booked back to back which made the experience feel rushed.

    Always a favorite to take our friends and family. Great service, the food is fresh, authentic and fantastic for anyone with GF needs. The polenta chips are a stand out.

    Disgusting! So over priced! Very small portions of meals. If you know what’s good for you don’t go here. You will be very disappointed. We had four adults & 2 kids. Our bill was $300 inc drinks, two beers and 6 cokes and two glasses of rose. Staff that served us was lovely. Ordered polenta chips, sweet potato chips as entree it was lovely but that’s where it absolutely stops. Carbonara was disgusting, chicken Parma was so dry chips looked like they were sitting there for a while. We paid for our overpriced over cooked pasta and walked out. Will never ever come back again. My local pub cooks better Parma than that. 🤮 I would not every recommend anyone to eat here.

    Wait service was excellent however that was about it . I am a celiac and my husband needs to follow low FODMAP diet so we were excited to dine in a safe environment. The food is so overpriced for what you get . Menu limited so we ordered pasta . it was served in a tiny bowl at first we thought it must be a small entree serving ,to our disgust it was the main for $30 per plate and it was average. So sick of getting ripped off for being a celiac 🥲 doubtful we will be back .

    Once again, the quality of the service matched that of the food. I'd told the venue that it was our anniversary dinner, and the table was subtly enhanced with some greenery in a vase. It was a fine night. Thanks, Mamma!

    The food was excellent, and the service was top-notch. The waiters were incredibly friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed dining outside; the ambiance was pleasant, especially on a cool day

    The worst restaurant I’ve eaten at in Melbourne. It took an hour from when we ordered to recieve our food. It was moderately busy in the restaurant. We ordered Pasta with Lamb Ragu and a Parma. That was not a ragu. Not even close. It was five cubes of lamb with a very basic tomato sauce. No vegetables, no garlic, nothing. Almost completely flavourless. The Parma was incredibly thin, approx 5mm of chicken that was grey and tough. It was overcooked and seemed to have been preciously cooked and reheated. We were keen given the celiac certification but that’s all they have to offer. Truly didn’t know Melbourne had a venue that served food this bad. Really poor effort.
