Drawn into this cosy restaurant considering it to be the better choice of its Italian competitors on the Katoomba high-street. Unfortunately, despite the appealing decor, the dining experience was appalling. The ‘Special – Four cheese gnocchi’ was comparable to a mac n cheese microwave meal. Additionally, the vegetarian lasagne despite its hearty and cheesy appearance turned out to be terribly... More

Found this little restaurant walking along main street. It was a busy night as we had to wait for a table and glad we did as the food was awesome. It is a BYO and there is a bottle shop a few doors up. Lasagne was yum and regret not getting the larger size. They give out dough for the... More

Heading into the Blue Mountains for a weekend of camping we were looking for a simple cafe/restaurant to stock up on energy. This did not disappoint, with all kinds of mostly Italian fare and a range of pizza and pasta dishes as well as steaks etc. It's a bustling family friendly place near the station and was pretty packed the...

Why would you go to a franchise when you can have the authentic pizza experience. Great vibe eat in or great home delivery! Have never had a disappointing meal here. Bring your own wine, its a bargain!

All kinds of Italian dishes are served here, but do try the pizzas, they are great. Also, for vegan travelers there's a very good dairy-free cheese for the pizzas.
