We had high hopes for this eatery. It came highly recommended locally. The food was ok - arancini a little over cooked, pasta dishes ok, great cocktails and wine, but my 3 star grading is more about the atmosphere. Our meal was blighted by a group of 10 who were foul mouthed and loud, making for a very uncomfortable experience.... More

Was excited when making the booking, but things went downhill when my starter arrived which I only had 1 bite of. I shared my wife's arancini balls which were good. It's an Italian restaurant, bring olive oil and balsamic vinegar to the table!!! Had to ask for that, salt & pepper, after that we enjoyed our cocktails while we waited... More

This is my favourite Italian in Byron Bay... the food is done really well, pasta is mouth watering, the wine selection is amazing and the multitude of cocktails are incredible.. if you love coffee and vodka, try their expresso martini, it's awesome!

Our group of 22 had a wonderful dinner here. Set course due to the amount of us, the food was divine. The restaurant itself is so lovely, outdoor dining (roof covered) sitting amongst a beautiful garden, it really is lovely. Our waitress was wonderful, took photos of our group and couldn't be more helpful. The food is to die for!

We were immediately taken by the menu and the location opposite the beach. It all fell apart quickly from there. We ordered a bottle of Sauvignon which arrived in the dirtiest old, broken plastic 'ice bucket' i've ever seen. We ordered arancini as a starter, which any good Italian restaurant should be able to make easily, wow they were so... More

Located next to beach but fenced in enough to be away from the rat race. Good service and nice food.

We went to this restaurant because the atmosphere was very appealing being on the beach and next to the beach hotel. We didn't expect the food to be so amazing. The menu was the best I have seen in a long time. I had the snapper on cauliflowers purée with broccolini and green apple and walnut. So delicious. Even the... More

Had dinner here with my wife. I had the red snapper which was perfect! My wife had the tuna pasta, it tasted ok, but not much tuna with a lot of pasta. Service was good.
