The waiters who served us were very friendly and accommodating to our needs. The food was served promptly and well presented. We had a variety of food ranging from pasta to pizza to risotto and included barramundi, crayfish, beef and chicken. Overall, the taste was delicious and definitely worth coming back for.

I need to say I was the patron who complained about 'tough calamari' in my seafood pasta dish. The dish itself was amazing but the first circle of calamari was VERY tough (unchewable). That's when I mentioned to ( lovely) waitress BUT after trying another piece and another they were all fine, just fine, making me draw that to the waitresses attention. There was only that one piece in question. It was delicious.

Ive always loved coming to this resturant and still do but last night where i was sitted i kept getting bumped. I was up stairs and large group of adults kept bumping me. The resturant also had the air con on upstairs and being asthmatic i felt sick. It was rather cold and had to keep my jacket and scarf on the whole time i was there. I hope next time they put my son and i on lower level and in a corner somewhere and away from the air vents.

The polenta chips with gorgonzola sauce was amazing. The pasta and pizza dishes we ordered were also exceptionally good. This is our 2nd visit to this restaurant and we will be back for sure. Very family friendly also, even on a Saturday evening.

Beautiful good, and great service. We enjoyed sitting upstairs for a change, and it was probably a little bit quieter which was nice. It did get a little bit hot however, but it was more than bearable.
