Good selection of wines. Nice food. Took a little to get a drink order in but very nice. Shared the prawn fettuccine to start. Glad we shared it as it was a big serve. My friend loved his risotto.

Went to dinner with friends. They ordered the pasta which was fantastic, my Seafood Bisque was very disappointing and really acidic in taste. Dessert was amazing again, perhaps I just misordered.

Get off the Esplanade and relax at this little Italian gem. Peace, quiet and time to be in the moment away from the crowds. If you want to take the time to enjoy your meal and company then this is a good place to be.Lamb...More
