Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Gnocchi - poor, mix between packet mac and cheese and tomato jar sauce with fake Parmesan…. Disgusting Brisket was flavourless, coleslaw was wet and soggy chips, boring. Garlic bread, burnt…. Very expensive - I’m sure if they did not have a large caravan park next...door they wouldn’t be in business for much longer. Luckily there are always a large bunch of first timers travelling through Exmouth.More

Great flavours, generous serves and great service. Pasta was al dente and the sauce awesome. Heaps of seafood in the marinara and everyone that ordered came out with a doggy bag. Gelato was also really good.

We visited twice during our stay. The first time I had pizza which was sensational. The wife had pasta which she enjoyed. The second time I went for the smoked ribs and they were very disappointing. Chunks of dry meat with heaps of fat on...a plate piled high with chips and a very wet coleslaw. Not worth the money by a long shot.More

Generous sized meals. Good table service. Melt in your mouth pork ribs and very tender beef brisket salad. Gnocchi also a winner. Conveniently attached to our caravan park with poolside verandah dining area catching the evening breeze.

Belying its name, it appears pasta and pizza are the specialties here. Very generous servings of good quality meals, which were hot, promptly delivered and very reasonably priced The staff were friendly and super efficient. Very Highly Recommended.

Was a pleasant surprise, Italian restaurant attached to the Ningaloo Caravan and Holiday resort is close to the action. Great place to check out the BBQ Father at Exmouth for smoked meats, pizza and pasta. Ample serves and friendly staff.

We enjoyed dinner here after our Humpback Whale swim, and the food was really good, extremely generous portions - we all took some home. Friendly staff, and right next to our CP meant we could have a few drinks and not worry about driving.

Wasn’t expecting to find this quality of Italian food in a small town like Exmouth. Generous portions of homemade pasta could easily serve two. Gelato was the highlight. As good as that we had in Rome - creamy and delightful! Brisket was average but pork...ribs were tender and delicious.More
