  • 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.
