Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable to a couple of newbies to this restaurant. We shared the prawn pizza, cuttlefish, both with chilli and delicious. Desserts of pannacotta and lemon meringue pie were also great. We will be back.

Very good food (Italian themed) that was delivered to the table within 10 minutes of ordering. Additionally they have a few craft beers to choose from at a reasonable price. Atmosphere is pleasant. I recommend sitting outside.

In James street, this restaurant is a little surprise. The waiter was very knowledgeable about the choices of wine and provided advice and tasting!! Certainly worth a visit as the food matched the wine
