Enfold is lovely, the staff are great, the manager is rude beyond belief. A glass was accidentally knocked off a table by a customer, and the manager came up and said " well.. there goes my corkage fee". And walked away.

Our entire visit was wonderful, with personal and informed service, including knowledgeable advice on Italian wines, combined with a sumptuous main and perfect dessert. We left feeling so glad we had chosen Italian food and had chosen Cafe Rosso. Totally recommend.

One of my favourite cafes to visit in the Southern Highlands. They by far do the best pastas, especially the Duck Ragu and Spaghetti Allo Scoglio (seafood spaghetti). Staff are always attentive and helpful. If you are ever in the Southern Highlands Cafe Rosso is...More

Asked the friendly waitress if they had Ham and Cheese toasties on the menu, they didn't but they would make it any way. Lovely coffee. The Toastie was wonderful, best ever. Every time we have been there the staff have been welcoming and friendly.

Hmmmmm? Microwaved 3 times and still not warm? Something sounds faulty here and I don't think it's the microwave.

TomStar1 is not the owners of Pizzas in the Mist. If you look at TomStar1's Tripadvisor reviews it is obvious this person does not represent or own Pizzas in this Mist. Your claim is false and Tripadvisor has also been notified of your damaging review on our Tripadvisor page also. For the record we know the owner of Cafe Rosso, he is a lovely man and we would never write anything damaging towards his business. Belinda and Thomas Borbely (owners Pizzas in the Mist)
