Great night, still in the teething stage. The food is light, we had gnocchi prawns, flat iron steak and the papperdelle delicious... Menu is limited, reasonably prices and has something for everyone. Authentic cocktails - had the Garibaldi. Thought the wine list was too expensive, to match the price of the food - not enough in our range ie under $100 per bottle. Staff were lovely and very attentive. It will be great.
We had a delicious meal at Caffe Bartolo. The food, wine, service and ambience was just perfect. We have just spent a month in Italy so we are very particular. We will definitely be back.
Fantastic service, delicious food and a great location. Can't say enough good things about Caffe Bartolo - I'll definitely be back for a second serve.
