We were recommended this place through a work colleague who “knew someone” and it didn’t disappoint. The service was lovely, the restaurant is very nice, and the food was delicious. I had the crab pasta (being pescatarian) and I hadn’t had much crab before. The...dish was amazing and I polished off the entire bowl full. Will definitely be heading back.More

What started out as unsure as we were only just arrived in town, grew to be a great night with friendly service and lovely food, The ambience is really nice but relaxed too and the wait staff engaging and willing to chat. Our food was...very tasty and nice both having the seafood options. The night was thoroughly enjoyed and by the many people who came in others have found this great restaurant too. Apollo Bay take care of this gem.More

Garlic bread was rubbish and the pizza was even worse. Service was good the only positive note on the whole sorry experience.🙄

The food was delicious, went 2 nights in a row. The service was was 10/10. We had home made pasta the first night and the second night shared a pizza and salad, more than plentiful . Makes my mouth water just thinking about it.

I had booked ahead by phone with a man called Keith but my booking was not in the book, luckily I went in to confirm beforehand. We chose the 7.45pm later sitting, the restaurant was very busy on arrival, unlike at 6 pm when I...went in to check our booking. Service from the young staff was excellent. Meals took a while to come but we had a quiet table in the back corner with a couple of nice bottles of wine. Two of us had the Fish of the day, Snapper which came whole and was well cooked. The other two had Pasta dishes which were surprisingly ordinary. Nice atmosphere and well decorated restaurant,a step up from most in Apollo Bay.More

We were recommended this restaurant by hotel reception. In 8 weeks in Australia this was one of the best meals we had, the staff were delightful. The menu was varied. I had fresh sardines as a starter a delicious half duck as a main course....The ambience of the restaurant was great. I’d love to return.More

We live in Melbourne but have a house at Skenes Creek. We have recently been to Casalingo 3 times in the last fortnight either as a couple or with family and on each occasion every dish was excellent. This restaurant is the equal or better...than many Italian restaurants we visit in Melbourne. The pasta dishes are superb.More

We are so happy we found this gem in Apollo Bay. We were warmly welcomed & promptly had our order taken by a lovely young man (sorry I didn’t get his name!) our food was exceptional. We ordered roasted veggie pizza & gnocchi Gorgonzola with...a glass of red & a French martini. Hands down the best gnocchi we have both had & we were fighting over the last few pieces! Highly recommend coming here if you are in Apollo bay.More

Very happy with the service from Dave who welcomed us with open arms. my husband and I both had the Marinara pasta which was filled with Scallops, white fish, Mussels, Calamari and prawns and cooked to perfection and dare I say came to the table...steaming. Very very satisfied with my pasta craving. Thank you for our last dinner experience in Apollo BayMore

An excellent meal, fresh food, well prepared and delivered by pleasant, competent wait staff. The restaurant was fairly busy but there were no delays. The menu caters to all tastes and the wine list is comprehensive. A lovely meal :-)
