Didn’t expect to find such a decent Italian restaurant in the bush. Live music (from a 16y old singer/guitarist) was excellent - food very good and an adequate wine list. Our Indian waiter(another surprise) was excellent too

I always plan my trip around meals here, and during my most recent trip I tried their coffee and it was fantastic! The food is authentic and always top quality! Great gnocchi and pizzas. Such an asset in CQ!

I was a bit unsure about an italian restaurant in Emerald but I can tell you they are spoiled by this fantastic place to eat. The food was amazing and the service friendly. I go every time I visit Emerald.

Australianised Italian food which was good but service was horrendous. Had to wave staff down as they walked past. The place was busy but...service was so bad. I would give it another chance however as the food was very good.

This small Italian restaurant was talked up as a hidden gem. This customer review was in fact weirdly inaccurate. The menu was overpriced and underwhelming. The only redeeming quality was the roast pumpkin side salad, that was among the only reasonable priced items on the...More

Wow - we have won several awards and are very popular among our local town so thanks for the terrible review!
