For a southern Italian restaurant this place did not disappoint. They had a cool big open space with friendly service and above average Italian food. A great selection of wines and gluten free pizza options. Pasta sauce was great and portion sizes were large. A...quick in and out experience for lunch with decent prices. Good menu option too. I’d definitely go there again. I forgot to take photos of our food but I had Italian sausage with spaghetti the sausage was cut up in small discs and my family members had chicken parm and gluten free pizza all satisfied.More

I think Formaggios should have a sub-title, 'Little Italy'. Food and ambience was perfect. Service was of a high standard and not overbearing. Our chowder starter was delicious and of an excellent consistency and our four different mains (Ravioli, Carbonara, Spag Putanesdc) complemented by a...stunning shiraz were both authentic and generous. Yes- we succumbed to a decadent dessert - Tiramisu -Heaven. Grazie tanto! Our complimentary birthday champagne was a welcome bonus!!More

Fantastic for families, great setting and lovely food. Can’t wait to go back. We have 4 kids and they loved the pencils and activity sheets. GF friendly. A platter option would have been good.

My wife and I were celebrating my birthday and decided to have dinner at Formaggio’s restaurant. Great choice. We loved our starters and the main dishes were outstanding. The team at Formaggio’s were very attentive and helpful with our selections. I highly recommend this restaurant.

great prices, me and a friend shared so many dishes loved it. Amazing dessert too! Only thing we did not like is that it was super loud, the hall kind of echoes but everything else was great.

The meal was absolutely beautiful, the ambience was lovely, but mostly the staff were what made our night so pleasant. Hana and Marcus were just wonderful and so attentive.
