This is a very popular Resterant in George and is recommended by a number of the corporate golf estates such as Fancourt which makes booking essential . We made a booking by telephone for 1930 , on arrival the booking could not be found and we were left standing about for about 15 min. I think they over book the... More

The only thing wrong with this restaurant is there aren't more around the country. Food and service is outstanding. By far the best Italian restaurant I have been to

Only 1 toilet per sex which is a bit of of a problem when the place is full. Lacks a bit of Italian atmosphere. Service was not bad... More

The food was ok, not really worth the price but can not complain too much about it. The restaurant does lack some atmosphere.
