Amazing food and wonderful staff. Had a great time. The chef makes a production out of the cheese wheel that is worth a visit for the show alone.

Hello We had a very enjoyable lunch at Godi la vita the staff were so friendly welcoming and really nice . The smells and the atmosphere was so incredibly inviting from the second we arrived. Godi la vita had the most delicious Italian meals. You really couldn’t find a meal that wasn’t delicious and tasty. The staff even invited you to watch the chef cook your pasta meal on the cheese wheel, that was exciting to watch. There desserts menu was fantastic we didn’t know what to choose they are all delicious and very popular ,you really are spoilt for choice. We would certainly return to have another meal there happily. Thank you.

This restaurant is a great find! The owner Laurie is a very personable person and all the young staff are very pleasant. The food is delicious! I had one of the signature Cheese wheel pasta dishes and it was superb. Others in the group of 8 had pork ribs, grilled fish (dory) , steak and spaghetti al grancio and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal. The oysters we had for entree ( done in various ways) were great also. I would recommend you try this place soon.

Food was ok service a bit lacking as had to ask for water but saw other people get seated and given water straight away , not good enough!! Also another table was called to see our cheese wheel made but we didn’t get to see it?? Young blonde waitress need to learn how to serve customers and try and smile or find another profession! Thumbs up to the older host who was excellent!! Not sure if I would go back just based on the service .. sorry
