My wife, a friend and I had dinner and we were all disappointed with the quality of the food. None of the dishes were seasoned, so all lacked flavour. Very expensive too for what you get. I don't think we will be returning there soon.

Lovely Mother's Day dinner, the waiter was very jovial and had us laughing. Good Italian food, also has a room for functions or area that can be shut off for meetings. Always greeted warmly - worth a visit.

It is not cheap but the food was good and the service attentive and prompt Worth a stop though the parking is a bit confusing and it was very full lots of room and mid week it seems that no bookings are required

One of my favorite places on the North Shore, amazing at any time of the day: breakfast, lunch or dinner. Coffee is really good and they have cheap options for lunch with a 20$ formula including wine. Dinner is a bit more costly but you...More
