I can't believe the difference in our experience to the other reviews it's like a totally different restaurant. The people who waited on our table were lovely, it was easy to get someone's attention, however they were obviously not experienced waiters. Where do I start with the food...the scallops were like rubber balls, very overcooked and three of us had... More

Unfortunately there is little to say positive about their food. The scallops were so overcooked, the pasta was gluggy, the veal was ok, the sticky date had an awful sauce on it... Taken off bill in the end. Too much wrong with this restaurant's food, hope they fix it or close. The lack of Italians in the kitchen doesn't help,... More

Dinner for 3 during week. Menu was good and meals not expensive. Wine list was small but adequate and also not expensive. I had prawn pizza on a thin base which was very good. Other meals ravioli and Morton Bay bug fettuccine were both nice and large servings. Cost 3 mains, bottle wine, beer and sparkling water only $154.

Our kids (4 and 8) were desperate for Italian and this was the first restaurant we came across after getting into Manly late for a two night stay. We were not disappointed, all of our meals (pizza, pasta, seafood) were delicious and well portioned. The service was prompt and the staff were friendly and good with our children. Would definitely... More

We had dinner here twice. We chose the minestrone soup and pizza and both were great. We went at a quiet time so can only say the service was great. Good food at an affordable price.

We were looking for Italian food and we found Fiasco... We've ordered pasta of the day and a burger... It was OK, not great but not bad... The service was quick and the attendants were polite and nice...

Visited around 6:30 on a Thursday night. Extensive menu with pizza, pasta, seafood and specials. Food was excellent, service even better.

Read the reviews and thought this would be a great evening out. From the moment we arrived I knew we had made a mistake. The ambiance was zero. The owner/manager sat on the table next to us doing the accounts? The waitress could hardly speak English. We were rushed to make our choices (only 3 other couples in the restaurant).... More

Ordered from their well priced lunch menu burger, calamaris, and fish & chips. The food was beautifully cooked and presented arriving at our table in good time. Unfortunately the experienced was not so good due to rude and detached table service, really unusual for Australia.
