10 of us arrived for coffee on a Saturday morning for coffee. Tables rearranged to .accommodate us. Prompt attention and great food. Back again with 12 for Sunday Brunch. Again prompt attention and great food.

Had dinner here on Sunday night, service OK, ordered the Chilli Salt and pepper squid, the squid tender but no flavour, I had the Crispy skin Barramundi - soggy skin, no seasoning and the vegetables well yet again so very bland. Husband had Spaghetti Marinara - the sauce was a dirty brown colour and almost as i it had the scallopini sauce mixed into the Marinara sauce, seafood over cooked. Would I go back here again, not likely. Rumour has it they are closing down to renovate, they really need to lift their game if they want return clientele.

Went for dinner with my 2 grown children on Friday night and the waiter couldn't have been more accommodating to the 3 of us. The food was better than we've tasted in Australia- having just come back from Italy. It was absolutely on par with what you'd expect from an EXCELLENT Italian restaurant in Italy itself.
DO yourself a favour and get on down to Raffaele's.
The atmosphere, service, cocktails and particularly food were OUTSTANDING!

Breakfast here was excellent, I bought two of my kids. Staff were polite and accommodating, seating us quickly with menu’s and taking our order. Our food and drinks arrived shortly after.
Highly recommend the eggs Benedict with ham
