Our AirBnB host recommended the place, and it was an excellent recommendation. it seems to really draw the local crowd, and can be very busy. We visited on a Thursday evening and they couldn't find a table for us. However, they DID allow us to place an order for take out. We visited the grocery across the street and killed... More

pizza and pasta tasty but average. The small pizzas are too large for one "big eater" - we had a small and large for four people

Went with friends, very busy, able to take bottled wine which we appreciated. Staff great, entree servings quite large and tasty. Good service overall. Book early as you won't get in, it's very popular.

Went for dinner tonight, had gluten free pizza vegetarian and garlic prawns. It was flavoursome and came out piping hot. Our waitress was very attentive and quick on her feet! Despite being so busy we were not forgotten. Overall the restaurant was great, food wasn't on the budget side but worth a visit if you love pizza!

I booked for a group of six on a very cold night and they placed us upstairs in a room that is warm and friendly. Although fully licenced, BYO wine is welcome at a very reasonable corkage charge. The menu is extensive and they have daily specials. Everything at our table was regarded as excellent both in presentation and flavour.... More

We ordered one of their special gourmet pizzas. The main components being Australian prawns, sweet chilli sauce, red capsicums and cheese. It was... More

We fluked a booking at late notice and the staff were very welcoming. Pizzas were great (lovely base and a good amount of toppings) and my particularly fussy mother enjoyed the lasagne very much. The only negative is that the prices are on the upper end of the scale ($25 for a standard large pizza) but the lovely staff and... More

After arriving by plane in late Friday night, a group of 4 of us decided to get take-away pizza from Paesano. It was just down the road from where we were staying at Hill St. It's an extremely popular restaurant,and was full to the brim with in-house diners. We gathered their pizzas were also popular by the queue waiting for... More
