Excellent food with great knowledge from Ben who served us. Can not highly recommend the 4 course degustation enough, which blends the wines from the Italy region. Truly and awesome experience.

Had an extremely enjoyable meal with my family. All the meals were exceptionally good (mushroom risotto, crab ravioli and kids spaghetti bolognaise). We were taken care of by David who was very friendly, attentive and made our evening pleasant and relaxed. Thanks very much!

A case of you get what you pay for. Excellent attentive and knowledgeable service from Ashleigh (thankyou). Extensive wine selection and a seafood linguine to die for. Ambiance and dulcet Sinatra backdrop. 5 stars

The service was not amazing, there was a massive stuff up with our oysters and the staff brought over more than what we ordered. When I politely tried to explain the mistake our waiter argued that this is what we ordered and even when he...went back to check and saw that was wrong he did not apologise. He allowed us to have the oysters free of charge (so we thought). My friends main course was brought out with the entrees there was no mention or apology for this either. When our bill arrives (roughly $1000) we happily paid and thanked them for the evening. However upon checking the bill when I got home I noticed that they had still charged us for oysters that we did not order as well as a fish of the day dish ($45) that nobody had. By this point it was too late to complain and we really couldn’t be bothered. On top of this the food was not great, the spanner crab pasta had a sour taste to it and the beef pappardelle was flavourless. I would suggest saving your money and going to one of the nicer, less pretentious Italian places on the Sunny Coast.More

Manager Ben, was such a delight to have attend us for this special lunch. His knowledge of wines & the food menu were excellent. Tonino who served our meals was fun, experienced & a great conversationalist. Decor was excellent, upmarket. Highly recommend this place.
