Very disappointed just no taste. Tortalini was dry and couldn't taste chicken or advacado. Chicken snitzel was also dry with no taste. Crumbs on snitzel were soggy. Very unhappy will go back to Heathmont in future. This restaurant was a waste of money.

We came here reading the good reviews, don't make the same mistake! The food lacked flavour, the service was painfully awkward. They were missing many things on the menu. Will never return.

I'm disappointed to see this still on TripAdvisor as I reported it closed several months ago. It was a favourite but why keep it on your site?

A great Italian resturant hidden away from the city hussel & bustle. Have always ordered something different and have never been disappointed. Always call in advance as they are always booked out!! Great italian venue, same chef all the time adding to a consistent meal!
