Flawless from start to finish! It’s always a sure thing!
Every time we come to Surfers or near Surfers we make a point of coming to this restaurant. The countless times that we have visited or taken away we have NEVER been disappointed! Just amazing food, attentive staff and pleasant ambiance. I recommend this place to anyone. Tonight we had garlic bread, alfresco pizza and the boscaiola gnocchi - amazing! 100% happy. Thank you

Trip Advisor had this restaurant under their Vegan Friendly filter, which me and my partner always value as I am a vegan. The menu looked promising online so we went, but after trying to order i was soon told that essentially nothing on the menu is vegan. There are no mains, at least, as all pasta and pizza bases contain egg and everything else is a meat based dish. I was offered a side dish of veggies or an entree soup, so I chose the soup. It tasted lovely - however for a “vegan friendly” restaurant I’m quite disappointed that there are no real meals that don’t contain egg or milk, especially due to the fact that their menu is huge. The majority of restaurants nowadays have at least one animal product free main. In all of the Italian restaurants I’ve been to previously, they’ve had some vegan mozzarella on hand in case someone wants to substitute cheese on a pizza and at least one type of eggless pasta so a vegan pasta dish can be made. It was quite disheartening that this was not the case this time. Other than that, the atmosphere was nice and my (not vegan) partner thoroughly enjoyed his gnocchi dish.

Hi, Thanks for your feedback! Apologies for the information that was given to you regarding vegan options, we have had some new staff and it's obvious that you were misinformed regarding vegan options.
We do have vegan pasta and pasta sauces, our pizza bases are vegan and we have other option including salads.
Thanks again for your feedback.
Ciao :)

We ordered takeaway pizza on our last night on the Gold Coast and it was AMAZING. The base was soft & not at all oily - so fresh & delicious. For one of the pizzas we made a request for various alterations from the menu. When we received it, it was spot on & toppings were generous.
Would definitely have pizza from here again. So tasty!!
