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.

Definitely changed hands from last time we were there. Now it’s Teens/young twenty somethings running it. Booked dinner online with Reservations for 7:30 on a Saturday night. Greeted from behind counter, pointed to our table and told to come up to the counter when ready...to order. Very bright, no ambience anymore. As we were sitting looking at the menu, another girl came over and said, “just to let you know you have this table until 8;45 “ So 1 hour and 15 minutes for our dinner out?! She said, “you would have been told this when you called. We close at 8:45 “ I said we booked online and there’s no way I would have thought a restaurant closes at 8:45 on a Saturday night. So sadly I picked the place to support local. We could have chosen so many other great places nearby to enjoy a night out with our friend. Will never go back or recommend. Food and service were both very average. Should be a take away place only. No longer set up as the nice intimate restaurant it use to be. Shame.More

How this restaurant can claim and position itself as being Italian is totally beyond comprehension. Our carbonara and pollo/mushroom pastas were not traditional, not cooked by traditional Italian methods, missing the basic qualities of al dente pastas and were drowned in tasteless cream rather than...gently coated in sauce. We observed parmas and ribs being served to the opposite tables and noted their pub style resembles and poor quality. The poor service via order at the counter combined with incorrect orders and waiter lack of interest and skill frustrated the experience due to the prices that were expected to pay. Seated outside near the road in a cold and unpleasant environment was nothing but a donation, never again! Avoid at all costs! Better quality at Eastwood shops!More

Having driven past many times we decided to have dinner. The place is very casual and rustic, the staff are friendly and helpful. The food was amazing and authentically Italian. My gnocchi was the best I have eaten outside Italy and the donuts were a...pillow of sublime deliciousness. Definitely going back💕More

I really enjoyed my experience here. It was around 30 degrees that night and we sat outside, i went to the toilet a couple of times and it was very humid inside, not sure who the people who dined inside coped with that despite an...air-conditioner in the corner not operating.The venue isn't that big, but that inst bad because that means they put more emphasis on food quality. There was 4 of us and we all enjoyed the food, good value, made fresh. The chairs weren't that comfortable but that's the worst thing I can say honestly. I would definitely come back here again even it meant i had to stand up instead of getting a table.More

The Micheli’s is in few words bloody beautiful for a night out. The food is sensational, the service is all about the customer. The location is interesting, this how I see it after visiting the Micheli’s for past five years. It’s two minutes stroll from...Heatherdale station on the Ringwood line making a easy 40 minutes hop from the city... perfect for different view and night out... they play the best dinner tunes too.More

We had a return visit to this little restaurant we recently found out about. A table of 11 for an 81st birthday on a busy Saturday night. The staff were fantastic & although every table full they tended to everyone’s need without any problem. Even...brought our cake out on a beautiful board & adding silver candles - Nan loved it. Food was delicious across pizza, pasta & ribs. Will definitely be coming back.More

I have dined here with the family a couple of times this year. Both times we have had very similar experiences and sadly, I probably won't be giving this place a third go. Let me start by saying the food is amazing. Amongst the pizzas,...pastas and other dishes, we were well fed and even took some home with us for the next day. But what's lacking is a good atmosphere. The restaurant itself is crowded - there is no space to move. The tables are very small. The chais are very uncomfortable. I needed to stand several times during our 90 minutes there as I was getting back pain. And becuase the place is so small and cramped, I felt like I had to do gymnastics just to get outside. Then there's the noise. Again, very small and very crowded means a very loud dining room. We had to actually yell at each other across the table to be heard. Our waitress told us she had a hearing problem so was also yelling which didn't help the situation at all. So overall, if you do want to eat here, I suggest take away and enjoy the comfort of your own home.More

I had a birthday celebration here and our meals were so rushed that we felt like we had been kicked out! The food was great, but we had very little time to appreciate it, as we had to wolf it down in record time! The...waitress was in such a hurry to leave by 9.00pm and we were told to order desserts as soon as we had our main meals as the kitchen was closing by 8.45 pm. Totally ruined what could've been a great night with friends for my birthday. SO disappointing, will never bother with this place again as there are many terrific restaurants in the area. The owner should review how she runs her restaurant as her waiting staff is appalling! Left with indigestion and half of our meals in takeaway containers as we were so rushed!More

Such a tiny restaurant with decent tasty food. Shame though, that they pack so many people in to the detriment of the enjoyment of your night. Two tables of 10 squashed in the back corner made talking and catching up hard. The fact they close...at 9 is another disappointment . Parmas were delicious, risotto tasty, and calamari said to be awesome . Would suggest they don't take 2 group bookings on one night or give more room between the tables might make repeat visits an optionMore

A noisey little bistro and a strange location for a restaurant. This well lit restaurant offers a wonderful, although small range, of delicious dishes. Having a tomato allergy makes Italian food difficult to stomach but the soft and cloud like ricotta gnocchi with pesto sauce...was very filling and definitely worth taking the left overs home. However my friend’s mixed grill pizza was tasty with a crispy base if a little dry. The small garlic bread that usually accompanies the meat balls was awesome. The jam donuts where... OMG YES! I’d have posted a better picture but it won’t let me. The service was amazing and the staff prompt and friendly. The prices are about what you would expect from an independent restaurant. Over all, the small tables and lack of leg room, mixed with the echoing and increasingly raising voices of people trying to talk to each other over the echo caused by the blank walls made talking difficult as we could not hear each other. The thumping music didn’t help. But the food and service made up for it. They also split bills.More

Really enjoyed the pizza. The base was a traditional style. I ordered the Aussie which was delicious. The toppings were generous, but not too much to spoil it and turn heavy. I went twice in a week and it was very busy so you would...need to book. I showed up unannounced and the staff were very friendly and managed to accomodate a small table for me. Not a huge range of beers, but at least they were cold. Probably a little on the expensive side, but at least the quality was good. I would recommend to give it a try.....More
