If I could only eat at one place in this area forever it would be here... I love how they look after our family and the food is SO delicious. Our family with allergies eats here confidently and always with a smile on our face...of such a fun experience. Thanks for looking after us for 7 years, best people and service! :)More

Fantastic food and vibe in this little gem. Oysters, pasta, tiramisu and vino all spot on. Along with great service from the waitstaff it made for a fantastic evening. Thanks guys!!!

The Pizza was OK without being great. The Hawiian was as you would get anywhere, Ham and Pineapple but what they call a Supreme only has three toppings. Would read the menu carefully next time.

It is of course, more challenging to serve a party of tenor more. But my salmon was over cooked. Others were dissapointed with the meagre amount of vongole and shellfish in a linguini special. Always prepared to make allowances for family run restaurants, but when...you get it wrong, own it. There was no offer to adjust the bill... even though prices were comparable to Sydney restaurants I had eaten in the week before. Not somewhere I could recommend.More

Incredible dining experience. My husband and I both loved (actually, really, really enjoyed) our pasta dishes and our son devoured his pizza which is a rare occurrence. The restaurant is lovely, had a fabulous atmosphere and the waitstaff are superb. The Nutella Calzone topped off...a great night.More

Best food on mid north coast. Good restaurants on north coast are few and far between but this one is worth a visit. Excellent pasta and fantastic super friendly service.

If you want great Italian this is the place. The food was great and the waiter super friendly. Food did not take long to come out and was fresh.

My partner and I ordered takeaway from here last weekend. We chose the onion bread, Pollo al fungi and Ru cola, all dishes were so tasty, and I could not find anything I didn’t like about them. Prices were quite good. I can not wait...to return, so we can dine in with our family and friends next time.More

Perfect, appropriately matched to what you receive. P.s. if you leave without trying the devils bread you’ve missed out.
