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.

We ordered a take away of Pork Ribs and Spaghetti Bolognaise. The ribs ok and hot, but the accompanying chips were stone cold - The Spag Bol was ok - Could have been much better with a little more attention.

Friendliest staff I’ve ever encountered. The food was immense, huge portions for what you pay, had to take home a doggy bag. Our entrées were incredible, arancini was especially good. Then our pasta dishes were even better, and the ice cream topped it off. Just...a lovely restaurant, couldn’t fault it.More

Staff were great, but so disappointed in the food. I love low and slow smoking, do plenty myself. My wife ordered smoked ribs and I ordered smoked brisket. Neither had even a lick smoke flavour. Straight out of the oven. Why advertise as a Smokehouse...if you aren't. Very disappointing.More

Convenient to the van park and consequently VERY busy with families so quite noisy. Service wasn't too bad and extensive Italian menu but almost no GF options.

We had pizza and pasta on one night and took it back to eat in our cabin at the campground. It was delicious, especially that pasta...should have ordered it again. But the next time we went back we had a smoked meat dish special, which...was good too.More

We ate here because of the smoked meats being advertised. We are avid meat smokers and I can tell you this meat WAS NOT smoked! It seemed to be cooked in a slow cooker. Beef Brisket was stringy, the pasta was tasteless. Will never come...back.More

Wow!! Such amazing food in such a remote location. Did not expect this. Well done team. All staff are happy, friendly courteous. And Did I mention how good the food is? Better than any Perth Italian that I’ve been to. Fast efficient service, great food,...yes I know I’ve said that already. Went back tonight for take away pizza and could order a beer on the balcony bar while we wait. Just in awe of the quality in this little town. No wonder they are so busy.More

There was a 1 hour wait for a table the night we went, so we ended up ordering take away. The pastas were delicious and generous in size. They have take away meal deals which made this our cheapest night out in Exmouth.

Great! Nice venue with plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. Huge menu with lovely range of food and drink items to choose from. Very polite and friendly service. I had the chicken parma which was huge and served with a lovely salad. My friend had...the pasta which was equally huge and very tasty. Will visit again.More

Upon booking we were really excited to have a delicious meaty meal after a big day of exploring. I'll start with a couple of positives... 1. We were able to book in for 6.30pm same day. 2. The service was provided with a smile. 3....My entree of the gnocci fritti was actually so delicious and well enough for two to share. . Now, unfortunately the rest of the review isn't so positive. 1. We ordered 2 drinks and 2 entrees. We only received one entree, the drinks came later and the 2nd entree was forgotton. They then told us at least 20 mins later it was put through as a main and would come out then. 2. We waited approx. 45mins for our mains to come out which we were terribly disappointed by. The restaurant boasts smoked meats, however we couldn't taste much of a smoky flavour at all. The meat on both the ribs and brisket were dry and not as flavoursome as we had hoped. The chips were just some cheap frozen chips deep fried, some weren't even hot on the plate. 3. We ordered another round of drinks when our dinner arrived, we had finished our meals (what we were happy to eat) before our drinks arrived. I had to ask for a follow up on our drinks order to be told they didnt go through the system. 4. The toilet facilities were average also. After being really excited to dine in at the BBQ Father, we were very disappointed and most likely won't return.More

We did takeaway pizza which were good so decided to follow up with dining in for dinner. We had pasta and it was regrettably tasteless. So suggest you stick to pizza. Most disappointing.

Fantastic pizza and gelato on our first visit when we ate in. Both our pizza’s were exceptional. Good base, thin & crispy, great toppings not skimping on any ingredient. More ordinary pizza on our repeat visit for a takeaway. Base thicker, smaller, not well shaped,...topping haphazardly thrown onto the base (eg too much cheese in the middle and none at the edges) and a bit undercooked. Maybe it just depends on who’s in the kitchen that night – could be great, could be ordinary. Be lucky. Make sure to have some of the great gelato though. Staff were fantastic each visit.More
