Family meal for 4 to celebrate a birthday. Great service, friendly and unpretentious. Eye fillet was cooked exactly to order and meltingly tender as was the lamb. Pastas were generous and delicious. We are never disappointed with the food here. Keep up the great job.

The whole experience was very good. I had the mushroom and chorizo risotto and my partner had the special of snapper. Both meals were excellent. The service was friendly and attentive. Would thoroughly recommend the restaurant. Well worth walking away from the Eat Street places.

Lovely meal and great service. My husband reckoned it about the best rib-eyed steak he'd ever had! Not too noisy either for a Friday night, even though was fairly full, which was a bonus. Will certainly go back.
