  • positive review  Had a wonderful evening meal here last night. The food was all delicious, we worked our way across the small plates and the pasta between 5 of us. Fabulous campari spritz and super helpful guidance on the wine list. I'm fully recommending, especially as it was only the 3rd night of service. Keep up the good work, keep learning!

  • positive review  I had the privilege of holding a special birthday at this venue last weekend. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The drinks, well, YUMMY! But the biggest drawcard was the beautiful food. Tasty, plentiful and well presented. True to the Italian way - a few ingredients done well. Textures perfect. Combinations spot on. YUMMO! Such a great experience for a memorable occasion. Will be back. Absolutely.
