Well priced, very accommodating as walked in on a busy night with no reservation. Terrific meals and generous servings.

We went there because it was very busy and we are new in the area so we want to try all the restaurants around. We waited 10 minutes for a table, ( it was right because we didn't have any booking) once they seated us we waited 20 minutes until the waitress came to take our order! We've ordered 1 pizza and two
mains and we asked to the waitress that once the pizza was ready can send to our table without wait the main because we understood they were very busy( 8.10).
At the end at 9 pm my main arrived before the pizza and the green been was uncooked after 5 minutes the pizza arrived awe asked to put it on a take away box and after 5 minutes my partner main!
The dishes tasted delicioua except the green been uncooked and the pizza dough was not the best for a wood fire oven. We are Italians and we know a lot about pizza and that one wasn't a proper Italian Pizza.
Overall: we give at 3 stars out of 5 because the customer service looked after us and apologized and the food was good.
Less likely we'll go back!

From the bar attendant with his skills on show making ur cocktail to the the food full of fantastic flavours the chef is cooking up for you.
Excellent service great price
I believe the wood fired pizzas are absolutely fantastic with a takeaway service available on the pizzas.

Somewhere we had been waiting to visit again for many years . We had told many friends about this venue over the years, however had not had the opportunity ourselves. Had added Coolum as a holiday destination for this trip we had to go there.
Picked a night later in the week and booked. A mild night and were shown to an indoor area.
Those the Shiraz, which was unknown to me , then set about choosing the meals .
Arrived on time and were delicious.
Can highly recommend this restaurant, it has changed little in 15 years.

Visiting Coolum from the Uk we tried to find a restaurant with good reviews. This was a great find. The food has a large proportion of Italian dishes pasta and pizzas. The list was very comprehensive. Other unusual fish and meat dishes. The starters were a little pricey but did include scallops. The pizzas were around the $24 dollar mark and about 10”. However the filling was very generous. We visited twice it was so good. Onlh had pizza on the second visit as they were so filling. The staff were friendly and proficient. The wine list was very extensive. It only opens at 5.30 pm but you must book. Leave a message on their answering service and they will get back to you
