We absolutely loved this place! The cocktails were delicious, for dinner we had slow cooked lamb lasagne & slow cooked beef ribs, both a stand out! Dessert was the best chocolate cake we have ever had. Fantastic service to top it off.

We visited for dinner - enjoyed a cocktail first and then 12 hour cooked beef which was delicious. Good service and a nice room away from the noisy hotel.

The Italian is the perfect place to get some great food at a reasonable price. The cheese board had a great selection, and Oysters were even better. The staff were always on the ball and kept dropping by to check on us. The Italian has...More

The service we received, and we were well looked after by Frea, was top shelf. The food was plentiful and quick. A good wine selection is offered. There were a few shortages in the ingredients of the marinara, however the chef added plenty of extras...More
