Ambience and service were exceptional at this conveniently located Italian restaurant not far from Queen's Wharf. We were drawn by the waft of garlic and olive oil andwelcoming vibe. The cocktail list is refined and interesting with a talented bartender making the quickest cocktails I've ever seen. The Limoncello Sorbito is half coctail half dessert as it comes with a spoon to indulge in the Limoncello sorbet. The arancini were hot and very crunchy, an excellent pairing for a cocktail. Next time we'll dine and have a few more cocktails. It's clear the staff enjoy their work and were very welcoming.

Perfect. Friendly staff which, looking around, made for a restaurant full of happy diners. The pasta and wine were delicious and the serves were generous. The music gets a special mention. I’ll be back.

Made a booking for 8pm. Waited 1/2 an hour for a table. The music was so loud we had to almost shout to out friends. Could not hear the waitress. I asked her twice if we could turn the music down. The owner did not want to. Cocktails were nice. The chef was friendly and good food.

Well proofs in the pudding they say!
After 7 visits in 5 months they must be doing something incredibly right.
Being 1/2 Italian and a foodie l know a bit about Italian food and this is great place to eat. Charming rustic, decor, great bar and service to match very tasty pizzas, pasta and bruschetta to die for!

I was so excited to eat here as the menu sounded amazing. When we arrived we were seated in the new Neighbour restaurant which also amazing. Rustic and interesting. Service was good. However I was sadly disappointed with the food. My cannelloni can out when most of our table had finished eating. It was overcooked and the bottom was so hrs and stiff I couldn’t eat it. Salads were boring. A Gorgonzola dressing was chunks of cheese thrown into the salad with no other dressing and the summer salad appeared to have no dressing at all.

We popped in early evening for a couple of cocktails.

The venue is lovely - cosy, inviting, well laid out and just a great ambience.

I chose the limoncello cocktail and it was amazing! I would go back just for that.

The menu looked great and next time I’d love to go back for dinner.

Front of house guy was very friendly and helpful.

Would definitely return!

Restaurant was stunning, food was amazing & service exceptional. Highly recommend the vodka pasta. Cocktails were gorgeous, my favourite was the Sicilian Pornstar.

Good authentic pizza, yummy salad and dessert. Service a bit slow, music very, very loud, too loud for us oldies but swarming with hipsters so we aren’t the target audience. Generally good vibes.
