“One of the worst take-away pizza's I've ever had”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

One of the worst take-away pizza's I've ever had - had to wait half an hour for it, after the waitress had advised 10 minutes, then all we got was an obviously hurried pizza with a burnt base - terrible!

Stumbled across this cafe while in Mooloolaba. Fantastic! Everything on the menu is good, ask the staff about the specials.

“Slighty over priced for horrible little and poor quality food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2012

A "large" pizza at $22 which was not large at all and had very little flavour, very stingy. The gnocchi at $27 was no bigger than a handful and again not much flavour
Left hungry and very disappointed.

“Brilliant Brilliant Brillant!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2012

Wow- what an awesome place! We ate here at least once a day on our recent holiday and was sensational each and every time. The staff are outstanding, the location truly cant be beaten and the food is absolutely delicious. This place has created many wonderful memories for us. Thank you Via Italia!

“Very very poor service - Warning to any families planning to visit this restaurant”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2012

I visited Via Italia with my wife and 2 year old toddler. We were given an unsafe high-chair that we had to hold in place to stop our child from falling out of his chair. We eventually gave up and put him on a normal chair as it was safer.

We then had to flag down a waiter as no one had been to our table to offer water or any form of service. Two of the meals were nice, the third was warm at best. We then explained the issues to one of the waiters who passed it onto the Manager. The response back from the waiter was that the Manager had apparently offered to serve us "2-3 times" and we had asked for more time. This was completely not the case. We then asked to speak to the Manager who contradicted the waiter and gave a completely spiteful and insincere "apology". I do not recommend this restaurant.
