Saturday night. They would not know a Caesar salad if they saw one - must have been prepared by the cleaner! Pasta meal looked like out of a tin or packet. No veal for scallopini. Wine by the glass doesn't taste at the prices they charge and bottles - - forget it! An hour later I was feeling definitely uncomfortable... More

We visited this restaurant last weekend and were impressed with the great (genuine Italian) service, the delicious bruschetta with goats cheese, well cooked, good choice of main courses, extensive wine list and delicious affogato to finish our meal. For four of us, with a bottle of wine, a couple of beers, an Irish whiskey and affogato all round it cost... More

I must say I was a little disappointed with the food. It was more of a quantity than quality scenario. I tasted 4 different dishes and one piece of a pizza and I can say that it was all average. I had the Veal Scaloppine with the Cannellini Beans with Lemon Butter Sauce. Lots of Beans and very little Veal.... More

We went in with the kids for a quick bite, just ordered 2 pizzas (over $60 with the public holiday surcharge). The place was almost empty. The wait staff were OK, but when paying it was made quite clear that our order was considered to be too small to be welcome. Happy to oblige by not returning.

We had a group of 9, including 1 person in a wheelchair, which was no issue at all. From my first contact to paying the bill, our experience was fantastic. They were very accommodating with my requests, and all of the staff were so lovely. The meals were very tasty, and good value for money. Great selection of dishes and... More

Very disappointing meals for all six of us. Portions were small and expensive. Food was very bland. Duck was $38.00, two small breasts with no sides. Pastas had no flavour. Chicken breast was overcooked. This was definitely our worst meals we had in Brisbane. Don't waste your time or money eating here.

This restaurant has a great location, being right on the waterfront and convenient to our accommodation at the Kingsford Smith Hotel. Menu was good, not great with typical Italian fare and a strong selection of pizzas. Seemed a little overpriced to me, at best only fair value. Some might say cheap on the toppings. Tasty. Service very good. The feeling... More

Authentic Italian. Has that Italian feel to the decor, functional and friendly. The wait staff, predominately Italian and young are friendly and attentive. The food is good, not the best but good. Servings are ample but not large. The wine list is extensive and expensive. Being Italian, it can be loud but that adds to the atmosphere. We've been here... More
