The food was average, to say the least The service was poor, they didn't seem to care very much. Decor outdated and filthy. The toilets are DISGUSTING!!! It looks like they have NEVER cleaned them. A lot of people from our table of 13 people commented on the toilets. The women especially were horrified at the state of them. To... More

We went here after finding out the place we wanted to go to was closed for renovations. We thought that because it had a wood fired pizza oven it couldn't be bad. My husband ordered a pizza. it was not good, it was so oily in the centre (an actual puddle) that he had to mop it up with serviettes.... More

We had lunch there with kids and friends. Bad decision. Even though it is well located and a nice setting that won't help with the food and service. The calamari was the worst that I've tried for a long time, the pizza was a joke (bad one) and the waitress was clueless. For a restaurant it was not too badly... More

I eat at a lot of Melbourne city and inner West places. Typically a group of us look for Food around the $17 mark with cheap drinks. In our view this place is one of the best. Pastas are the pick of the menus and are absolutely fantastic for the price. Chicken pasta and Sicilian are great picks. Jug of... More

Last minute decision to stop here for lunch midweek. What a gem. Quick & friendly service, reasonable prices, relaxing atmosphere but there's more.. had the most amazing tasting baked barramundi that I have ever eaten. The flavour of the sauce was outstanding and fish cooked to perfection, was served with Greek salad, partner had smoked salmon & avocado risotto, again... More

Visited this eatery for lunch. The setting is nice, prices are set in the 1980s and so is the food. Ordered 2 steaks medium. Not sure what decade the steaks were from but they were both like hard over cooked ice hockey puks plated by a 5 year old. Also had a spaghetti bolognese for the kids which was just... More

I should have listened to my gut instinct from the time we walked in. Waited at the counter to be seated....after 3 staff walked past us, without even an acknowledgement, didn't seem to be interested or doing too much. Finally we were spoken to and taken to our table. After some time, we were asked to order, so placed our... More
