Our Melbourne friends came with us to this restaurant. The atmosphere was good, the staff most welcoming and helpful. However, the food was not quite what we expected for the price we paid.

Always liked this restaurant for a nice casual meal. Service pleasant with a smile. Pizza is very large, one is enough for 2 people. Could have offered us dessert menu but did not. Will still come back and eat here again

Superb food for a very reasonable price in a short city. Great antipasti and really good main courses. 3 of us visited for a meal and we had 5 antipasti dishes, 3 mains, 2 beers a glass of red wine and 2 coffees which came to $168 so about£100 which was more than reasonable. Tip ask for a table outside,... More
