The service was great, the staff were very friendly. We had the bruschetta for entree, it was a pretty disappointing start, the bread was dry, it would've helped if it was toasted with a bit of olive oil, the quality of the tomatoes were your standard cheap supermarket tomato mixed with a lot of red onion and basil, no fetta...

Ordered pasta Siciliana and it was fantastic. It was the best Italian food that I had during my trip to Australia. Even more impressive than the food is the personal service and great conversation that my party enjoyed with the staff! Would recommend this to anyone staying in the Gold Coast.

Staff were fantastic, especially with my two young girls. Food came out promptly and the pizzas were delicious. My picky four year old even ate four pieces of the large Hawiian pizza! Highly recommend.

I've been going to this restaurant for over a decade - the food is delicious, staff friendly and the service is always attentive. This is the reason it gets more popular every year I visit during my holidays.
