We use to love going to Criniti's Paramatta but never again, if you are an Italian restaurant cook Italian just don't play the part. After waiting for one hour for our food in a near empty restaurant expectations were high, how ever when the food came out it was bland, tasteless and without presentation. The waiters had no appeal and... More

Thought we'd have a spot of lunch before a movie during the week. First we were told to sit anywhere, then we were asked to move because it wasn't convenient. The wine we ordered wasn't in stock, then the other wine we ordered wasn't cold, so we took their recommendation on a French drop which was 'okay' (at least it... More

Terrible! Daughters 15th Birthday. Family dinner for six. Ordered the grilled Salomon. Was off. Smelt bad and tasted worse. Sent back to the kitchen and then had to debate with the waitress that, 'that's how it's meant to be'. Time to pay. No waiter to be seen. Paid at the bar and attended to by an obnoxious 20 something. Over... More

Spent a saturday night here with the family, there was 6 of us on a table and could barely move to fit our arms or eat comfortably. The food is delicious but extremely overpriced, dont come with an empty wallet. The tables are extremely close together to where if someone is getting out from the table behind me their chair...

There was a mix-up with our reservation, which was mainly my fault, but 19 of us arrived and the friendly staff arranged everything without missing a beat. We had the $55 set menu and the food was amazing, as well plentiful. They were understaffed because they weren't expecting our large table, but handled everything very well and very professionally. I... More

Totally disappointed by the whole dinner experience on Monday Night. The met with a very 'sour' maître d' who was uncompromising. Service was slow, we had to wave a waiter down for drinks and then to order. Complements to the drink runner who gave us a smile. Meals were not all delivered at once as requested. Cold Mumma Rosa's Meatballs... More

Dined here prior to Christmas for a work lunch, service was average. We had a mixture of different dishes including ribs, steak, veal. Vegetables were uncooked and the waiter had mixed up two of our meals. Got takeaway Nutella pizza for the office. I feel this place has too many choices and not that reasonably priced. Not inclined to eat... More

Its always a good sign when the vibe at a restaurant is lively and full and this restaurant has both - the décor is very rustic and I sometimes wonder why the TV screens are around. Efficient service is matched by the food quality and freshness.

We have visited many times other than on this occasion in December and the staff are always friendly and efficient. The menu is huge and there is a lot to choose from. The pizzas are delicious.
