We had a quick meal on a Saturday night. Staff was friendly. We didn't have a reservation but were seated anyway. I ordered pasta with a nice sauce and my husband had a pizza. My meal was lovely but served a bit to hot and it burned my mouth unfortunately. The pasta was nice though en tasty. The pizza was... More

Never disappointing. We always love the food, wine, friendly staff and atmosphere.It`s central downtown location means you can often walk to your accomodation.

We were a group of 8 - 4 adults and 4 kids - searching for someone to take us for dinner on a Saturday night. It was 6.30pm. Barrio Brothers could take us at 8pm. Osteria were terribly snotty and apparently fully booked even though there was not a soul inside their restaurant. Astrolabe was busy and really random -... More

Nice Italian food at reasonable prices. One of our group requested pasta with her meat dish instead of veg and they couldn't manage that.

We've been to Mamma Mia many times - great food, reasonably priced, and you can BYO. Menu is somewhat limited, but everyone can find something they'll love - including pizza for the kids.

Dined here and food was great. My four hundred gram steak melted in my mouth. It is BYO so you can take your own special or favourite bottle of wine

We visited this restaurant without a reservation. Greeted with a lovely smile and happiness to serve. We were quite economical with our food order. Our starter we shared which was sauted whole black olives with garlic and olive oil and came with two small pieces of ciabatta. Plenty of olives and very tasty. Recommend them. My guest had Mare and... More

During a recent visit to the Mount, we revisited this restaurant after being so impressed the first time. On both occasions, it was a great night out with really good food served in very satisfactory portions. I was a little disappointed with the black truffle entree (not quite to my taste) but the bruschetta and the calamari were excellent. We... More

Great lively atmosphere. Lovely waitress and wonderful food. The steak with coffee sauce was amazing. The pumpkin tortellini with blue cheese sauce was beautiful, the prawn pizza was delicious and the chicken and bacon carbonara was creamy and sooooo yummy. For desserts we sampled the best affogato, very lemony sorbet and perfect creme brûlée. Such a good night. Thanks team!
