Marco was an absolute hero, atmosphere was great. Super easy to find a park, and everyone was lovely and menu was affordable.
The meatballs and focaccia were both good, but didn't quite measure up to the reviews and expectations. We had the 2 pasta specials, paperdelle with lamb ragu and spagettoni with prawns and both were very tasty and the pasta al dente. The service from both the waiter and manager was excellent.
Excellent food, wine and service! We had the meat balls, prosciutto, kingfish crudo to shared and loved them all! Pasta were also delicious! Last but not least, we so really enjoyed the tiramisu and pavlova. Highly recommended!
