Always enjoy dining at Il Nido. You are always greeted with a smile by their friendly and courteous staff and the restaurant has a great vibe. The food is consistently good and my favourite the Calzone is delicious and the shared Antipasto plates are really tasty. Great restaurant for families, couples and friends.

One of our favourites! Can always rely on the service and quality of food. A family run business that takes pride in their business. Strongly recommend if you are looking for good Italian food.

Despite being very busy, we received great attention and were served wonderful Italian food without fuss or delay. So friendly. So reliable. So special. Unbeatable in the area.

Alex is a very tentative floor manager and his hospitality along with Adrian, Guilo and Dianne is second to none. You will not find better hospitality and good home style italian cooking anywhere.

Great atmosphere of an Italian Trattoria. Quick initial service but then it was very slow before our simple bruschetta entree arrived. It appeared our order was misplaced! For mains, we ordered a Lasagne each plus a mixed salad to share. Both items were ample in quantity, but sadly both were laden with salt which in this day is unacceptable.

We order delicious pizza of the day and the house wine was a perfect match. Nice and lively atmosphere, easy to park, easy to make a reservation.
