Food was excellent, lots of gluten free options, staff were so lovely and helpful. Highly recommend this extraordinary restaurant which is situated across the road from the Elvis Exhibition - a win/win.

We had booked for 8pm to give us time to get to Bendigo. It was early March, but after a warm day, it was a very chilly night and Borchelli had not yet closed in their outdoor area and turned on the heaters, so the offer of blankets when made was welcome, but were largely ineffective. The menu was interesting and we particularly like the restaurant's take on Bruschetta - the use of oven warmed tomatoes was innovative and the result was excellent. The mains were okay and certainly filling, such that we had no room fro dessert. However, the cold meant that we didn't want to dawdle and we were glad to be soon on our way home back to our motel.

Sucked in by the red and white checked tablecloths and the smell of garlic bread. But don't be fooled like we were, this is not authentic Italian fare. So disappointed to be served pasta that had clearly come out of a packet that could have been purchased from any supermarket. Definitely not a lovely home made silky pasta I was hoping for. Wasn't terrible but not great either, sorry but cannot recommend.

We went as a group of six for dinner. The young waitresses serving were all so helpful and friendly, happy to offer suggestions and chat. We went with their recommendations and were not disappointed! The pastas were generous and delicious and the desserts were out of this world! Lovely sitting outside on a warm night, could go in colder weather too as the outdoor area is covered.
