Dropped in for a meal after driving from Blueys to Sydney. Down a side alcove which houses about 4 other restaurants. Immediately could see was a local favourite. Very warm welcome not licensed so bring your own. Bottle shop across the road.

Food all the standards started with the arancini balls delicious. Had Lemon scallopini with beautiful vegetables again very good. Husband king prawn marinara. Dessert was some of the nicest gelato go the raspberry outstanding. So good food, service with a smile and very well priced.

Spaghetti with napolatana sauce was nice, but not mind blowing. As is almost always the case at italian restaurants in Australia, the parm cheese is grated onto your pasta by the waiter, so its a small amount and then nothing. In Rome you get your own bowl of parmesan cheese, why is parm cheese treated like a scarce resource here? Really friendly service. Restaurant was hot, so after eating a hot meal we couldn't get out fast enough. I'd recommend air conditioning on a hot day. Even though that might make the food go cold it would be nice to be comfortable. Don’t know if I'd go back, it's good but not so good I'd go out of my way to go back. Well priced. I enjoyed my meal.

I visited again for dinner recently after a break of a few months. The food is still delicious and the service friendly.
