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.

I have been here multiple times and the food has been sensational. The Chef, Marco, was brilliant. But he has gone. We arrived at 6:30 pm on Saturday night and it was only half full. Perhaps it would get full later.......it didn't. There are only...five items on the menu for main course. It's now 7pm on Saturday night and we are told 2 of them are no longer available. What type of planning is that?????? It's 7pm on Saturday, the restaurant is half full and half the menu isn't available. With virtually no choice three of us had the Orzu........it looked very average, was overly oily and tasteless. The staff are still friendly but I won't be back. A once great restaurant, and a secret gem of the Gold Coast is gone. It's no longer a restaurant......it's an average Cafe.More

I had heard great things only to be thoroughly disappointed which was a shock to me. We were offered a complimentary drink to satisfy me, which it didn't, then it felt like an hour before food finally arrived. Felt sick after eating the seafood, my...best friend did get sick after eating the chicken. Could openly hear the chef swearing to staff about customers hopefully it wasn’t us. I won’t ever be backMore

We've just returned home from dinner and have nothing but praise for Mozzafiato. The food, the service, the attentive staff, are all 5 star. I can't believe we've waited this long to try it. Can't wait to go again.

Lovely restaurant with beautiful gourmet food for a reasonable price. Friendly service & great chefs. I highly recommend Mozzafiato at Elite especially if early dining required as it opens at 5pm. Thank you. Cheers!

Dropped in tonight to try out this local restaurant and was not disappointed. Nothing was too hard and all the staff were extremely friendly and accomodating. Food was great value for money and I recommend the 3 course menu option.
