Was impressed by the decor and cosy authentic atmosphere of this restaurant. The staff were lovely, the wine list long. We were pretty excited as we had been recommended it by a friend.

We both ordered pizzas. The pizzas were a generous size. The toppings were disappointing. I chose the foggiana which had feta, salami, beef etc. it was bland and I couldn’t taste anything individually. Even though there was lots of cheese melted over everything it was still flavourless. No richness. Very disappointing. My companion felt the same about his.

We're travelling from Hervey Bay to Melbourne for our son's 40th....spent the night in Shepparton on the way through & chose this restaurant through Trip Advisor reviews! Wonderful! The restaurant was jumping...full to the brim! Warm, cosy, the food was fantastic! I had spaghetti marinara in olive oil with chilli on the side and my husband had spaghetti alla matriciana. Both dishes were SUPERB! So glad they could fit us in on a Friday night...great service and great wine to boot! Well deserved 5 stars!

Sam you are the master of hospitality!

Thank you for making us feel so, so welcome at your fantastic restaurant. Wow what a find, we have travelled down from Coffs Harbour and eaten out nightly but this meal surpassed everything and in fact one of the best experiences we have had for a long time. You have the recipe spot on. Outstanding welcome, fabulous buzzy atmosphere, you suggested a bottle of wine - wonderful $28 not the most expensive and certainly not the cheapest - however we had not tried it before and just loved it - Italian Pinot of course, the lovely Noreen came to take our order - she could not have been more charming if she tried - you are lovely Noreen. Our food was stunning had a great antipasto to share - sensational and then two pizzas again absolutely delicious. Gina came to suggest dessert but by this time we were more than satisfied and our taste buds singing a big thanks. Our account came to $70 - how good was that.

To Sam, Gina and Noreen and of course the terrific staff in the kitchen and big thank you for a memorable and very special night in Shepparton.

We were in town for a night after a 60th at Dookie. What people forget about Italian food is that the genre has evolved over centuries so don't mess with the recipes, which Bicaro's does with aplomb. Keep it simple and cook it just right, which they do.
Great attention without overdoing it. Great chat to Sam about his winemaking.
Had his 2017 Shiraz, Lovely young wine with character starting to show. I will follow his winemaking with interest. Worth a visit if you are in town.

The menu was a little limited. We had the wood fired pizza and pasta. The lasagne was delicious, a larger serve would have been welcomed. Beautiful outside courtyard covered with vines with additional seating, check out this lovely area when you are there. Upstairs function room in which dancing classes were being held when we went.
Service was a little on the slow side when we went, it was pretty busy and the waitresses were very busy.
