Lovely area and restaurant, the meals were good and the cocktails tasty, the service was a bit slow but that is okay we are on holiday!! There are no toilets at this restaurant so make sure you go before you eat.More

This used to be my go-to restaurant when at Airlie Beach, the last two occasions it has been VERY disappointing. Come on guys, lift your game. Can't say I will be back anytime soon.

Slow to get the attention of wait staff but once ordered the drinks and food came out pretty quickly. All food was nice, the brunch crepes were particularly nice.

Relaxed Italian restaurant with good service. The only negative was I could try too many other places as the food at La Tabella was so tasty.

This was a really good find! The food was excellent washed down with the house beer, Seafood pasta was excellent, not quite like a marinara you would expect, but clean, fresh and with a tinge or leamon jiuice.
