My family and I frequent this Italian restaurant in the heart of Mentone. Food is always excellent, with speedy service and a warming atmosphere. Prices are also fair for the amount and quality. Strongly recommend for anyone who wants a quick meal with the family.

We dropped in for a quick meal before the football at Princess Park a few weeks ago and thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The one draw back was two staff that were on the afternoon shift, poor communicators and poor attitudes. We were seated at a table in the blazing sun streaming in our faces and politely asked to be moved,... More

Been going here for business and pleasure for around ten years, the service is always great (Fiona the waitress is always friendly and on the job). I'd highly recommend it when visiting Queen Vic Market. The only improvement would be a bib to keep the sauce off my shirt!

They do all sorts of Italian dishes, pasta etc, eat in or take away. Very fresh at great value. Not fine dining but a good place to chill and grab something to eat.
