The Good
Service was pleasant and warm.Our waitress was good
The Bad
Food was average with no real intense flavors. The chicken breast was bland however the vegetables were excellent.The dessert of the day which was chocolate cake tasted very eggy and not what I was expecting
The restaurant although the atmosphere was pleasant the tables were not suitable for tall people.on this occasion the food did not match the atmosphere

We visited with a group of friends. First time here. Great Italian food all round and very attentive service. It was a cold winter’s night but extremely cosy inside. We had specially booked for this night as our friends knew there was an opera singer performing on the second Wednesday of school month I understand. What a voice. Very powerful in the small space. An added bonus to the meal. We will be back.

From the moment I made the booking in Italian I had a good feeling about this place.

The garlic pizza for entree was great and my my steak recommended by the chef was very tender indeed.

Atmosphere is terrific.

There is a huge pizza Oven Where we can watch the pizza chef make and cook the pizzas. All part of the authentic experience.

The house Chianti Was lovely.

Popped in here with our grown up kids for an evening meal. What a great choice, Fabulous atmosphere, decorated with all sort of Italian bits and pieces, lots of photographs and printed matter on the walls to keep us fascinated. Then there is the food. Nothing better than delicious plates served quickly and with a smile. Some authentic Italian staff too, to give it a wholesome flavour. Good range of wines and beers. Both our kids are in the hospo industry and were suitably impressed with this little gem. Will definately be back again.

We were staying nearby at the Ponsonby Manor and wanted a good meal. We got more than a meal. It was a spectacular authenic Italian dinner!
