Don't be decieved by the modest appearance of this small restarant from the outside. We stumbled across it quite by acccident. What a fabulous find! The service from the Italian spekaing staff was impecabble with great recommendations-all our meals were excellent. We can recomend Cozze (mussels in tomato sauce), and layered baked egg plant, Tortellini Dela Nonna and Porcini Ravioli. The Italian wine suited the food well. Low ambient noise so easy to converse. Will definitely be back!

Dined here with some friends that clearly love the place. Tried out our Italian on arrival, and struck trumps, so at least we know they are the genuine article.

We shared a very good antipasto platter that defeated six of us, so that was a good start.

My main of Veal Limone was good without being fantastic. The problem was that the lemon sauce was a bit thin, and really could have done done with further reduction to give it a richer flavour. Veal was nice and thin, but a little overcooked.

Overall some decent things about the restaurant, but it needs greater attention to detail.

didn't find this place till out last night, otherwise would likely have visited again. The service was fabulous - nothing was too much trouble and offers to adjust dishes according to preference. The food was terrific - 4 meals and all of them really delicious, and the ability to take our own wine (or purchase theirs) is just an added bonus. Plenty of outdoor heaters for chilly nights - the whole experience was just excellent. We will most definitely return!

Went last week end to Arriva , great find.
The restaurant is small and not too cosy with very friendly and professional Italian staff.
The menu is big, we tried the specials pasta and pizza, yum! Delicious !
We had the tiramisu as dessert and it was divine!
This restaurant is a great find,good quality even if they do really simple dishes that you can find everywhere in town.

We visited this restaurant on a recent trip to Brisbane. We were greeted warmly by the staff and our daughter was also made to feel welcome. It was lovely to hear Italian being spoken by the staff and gave us the chance to practise the few Italian words we knew. The food was lovely; the kids meals were the perfect size and the prices were very reasonable.
