Great size menu. If you can't find something to eat here then there is no hope for you! They even have healthy options and this is what i had, Lemon Chicken with Veg and what a tasty meal. This is the second time i have eaten here and both times i haven't had an issue.. Friendly staff, clean restaurant.

While waiting to be seated a waiter stood at the computer and totally disregarded us, after five minutes of being ignored another waitress came over and shook her head at the waiters ignorance. We were led to our seats where we were ignored for approximately 15 minutes. Finally the waiter that made eye contact with us on several occasions and... More

The menu clearly labelled meals that could be made Gluten Free - I ordered one of these meals and requested the Gluten Free version for which I was told it could not be done. My husband ordered the "3 meats" pasta, but could not identify three meats - only 1. However, the serving sizes are incredibly generous and staff friendly.

Big food servings, big prices, big choice Went for dinner with some friends, the service was good and the atmosphere was nice but the food was average. There is plenty to choose from on the menu which makes it feel mass produced. $30 for a bowl of pasta, the serve is so large that the average person would only get... More

The food are not bad, place is nice , but too expensive. I usually pay 50 dollars somewhere for the same size seafood platter they served for 149.00. Got there during happy hour, 4-6pm which gives us 50 percent off the drinks( you just have to keep on asking them about it as they dont seemed to know, lol) but... More

The restaurant offers a lot of choice. A very good place for meat lovers. One of the few places where one can find kangaroo meat! They have a terrace outside on the street. Inside, the ambiance is awfully noisy. The service is relatively quick and smiling.

Was worried after reading the reviews and having been crammed inside previously but this time all was good. We were seated outside, plenty room and good service. Food was yummy though overpriced. Meals were huge as was the variety. A good experience overall- thanks!

A brilliant night, with a very attentive staffer looking after a table of 18yos celebrating our daughter's birthday, with us parents and other two children sidelined on a smaller table but holding the purse strings 😊 An incredibly diverse menu, delicious food and huge servings (two meals worth, so though expensive, still good value), what really made the night was...

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
