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.

Food was ok, however they overcharged us 25%. no bill provided. No split bills allowed. then when questioned about the overcharge, they immediately claimed ‘sorry we must have charged twice for the wine’ however the discrepancy was a lot more than this and only provided...a portion of the overcharged amount. We didn’t want to continue arguing about it as there were so many people dining however we won’t go back, seemed like a massive racket for extra tips. If you go, ensure you receive a printed bill before paying!More

The staff and manager are absolutely ignorant and extremely rude do not recommend. It is really sad when you ask a question and some service and all you do is get yelled at will not be returning

Absolutely worst service ever. Arrogant disgusting service. Treated in a disgusting insulting manner. I have never been treated like this by any restaurant staff. Don't waste your time. Buy a takeaway from the iga.

The food was tasteless the waiting staff corse and the staff started packing up the tables at the same time asking us if we would like desert....We won’t be going back and we are island locals.More

Big bowl of nicely cooked spaghetti with three prawns in it. Nup. Owner/ manager guy patronising jerk. Thinks he can get away with talking about patrons in a negative way just because he talks in Italian. Caught out. Nothing good to say about the place....Go to the pub next door instead.More

Visited here will in magnetic island. Very surprised at the amount of positive reviews! Really was such a disappointment! Entree was fine Bruschetta basic so can’t really go wrong there! From entree to main we waited over 1hr for Two bowls of Gnocci which was...really really poor! Both extremely bland lacking so much flavour! Portion sizes where also really small! So not good value for money! Unlikely to return!More

We had a super family dinner here on our recent holiday to Magnetic Island. The food and atmosphere where delightful. It was very busy on school holidays so the food took a while but it was worth the wait. Very authentic Italian food and charming...Italian staff. Fun location in an open air mall across from the beach.More

We visited this restaurant for dinner on a busy Friday night. We sat outside in an undercover arcade which was pleasant. The staff were busy but we were served promptly and efficiently. The food was excellent and service great. This restaurant was recommended to us...by a prior visitor and we are very happy we visited. One of the must visit places on the Island.More
