The selection of pizzas and pasta and specials is great. The waiters were friendly and the wine /beer selection was all Italian which was great. Only comment is the prices are a premium.

If this was any more Italian you would be in Rome. Loved it. Food great, service Italian. What more do you you want. They even served us after nine when nobody else would. Licensed and lots of food and beverage choices. A definite thumbs up!

This is a very popular restaurant in Canberra and well deserves its popularity as the food and service are excellent. A range of genuine Italian dishes served with a selection of fine wines and finished off with coffee, a grappa if you are so inclined...More
