The serving size for the price is just upsetting. You pay 14-20 for a half full container. When you're spending $16 you at least want a container that will fill you up. Photo included.

This was my first time coming and the whole experience was great! Would recommend booking as it gets super busy though. We all ordered the pollo pasta and it's the perfect tomato/creamy combo!

The italian bowl is the best cheap italian eat in Sydney. Great food (especially the Sicilian), with the feta being exceptional. You can't go wrong here.

Really good quality Italian food with huge portions. Service is always efficient. The only reason we sometimes don't go there is the length of the line outside but we usually try to plan around the rush hours.
