The lemon gelato is the best I've tasted in a long while - so smooth and creamy. The Seafood Spaghetti was great - I couldn't finish it all. Lots of people so the food was good. Huge variety of Italian food.

We dropped in Beauxmont St for lunch not knowing where to go. But for ease of decision making I pointed to the cafe right where we parked because, why not? It's just in front of me. The regular pastas were significant in serving sizes and comes with 2 slices of buttered bread on the side. It was delicious and very... More

Went here with a group of friends approx. 14 of us. Food was excellent. I had the lasagna, one of the best ive ever had. Others had various meals and all thought great. The calamari was the best ever ive had. Service was good with friendly staff Will definitely go again soon.

This place has been around as long as I can remember. I haven't frequented it all that much over that time although it does have a strong local following. At first appearance it looks very average - much like many old Italian restaurants. The decor is very average and out dated. The food is typically family style Italian. It's not... More

Had been to the Northern Star Cafe on a number of occasions and always walked away feeling happy and satisfied, this time was different. I had my usual steak Dianne, it didn't look the same as previously and I found it to be a thicker piece of rump steak? Diane sauce was not tasty; I've had better. Other diners had... More

I hadn't visited the Northern Star Cafe in a while, so I decided to take my mum and sister-in-law for a bite to eat in Beaumont st. We were seated instantly and seen to within 5 minutes ,even though they were busy. We ordered drinks and meals right away. Drinks served straight away and meals within 15 minutes. I had... More

Absolutely disgusting food. Considering it's an Italian themed eatery - all pastas/spaghettis were tasteless and under seasoned and all tasted the same - very creative NOT! Actually the tomato prawn entree, the pastas, the steak sauces and schnitzel toppers were identical in flavour. The pepper sauce on my very over-cooked steak was sweet and tasted like vanilla. It contained no... More
