I've never been to this restaurant before and decided to give it a try. My friend and I shared a very soggy and tasteless "Italian?" salad, the bruschetta we also shared was reasonable, and the entree size "Seafood with salmon Pasta" had no visible pieces of salmon. $75 was the cost for 2 was far too expensive and poor value...

I booked this restaurant for a table of 10 people many weeks before the date of the booking.

Now called 'The Deck' - It has excellent food, whatever you have, from Pizza, Pasta and some really nice mains. Make sure you book though, as it can get pretty busy. You can sit inside or outside on the verandah.

Has a very good atmosphere: breezy and bustling. Food not incredible but very enjoyable home-style Italian. Has a bar, large balcony and a gelato range. Reliable local eatery.

It was a great place to dine however the Head Chef left and it was never the same again. It was simply terrible the last time I went. Huge loss for Thirroul.

Service and food are great. I have never been disappointed when I have visited here. Good portions and great pizzas, its just a fair way out from where I live otherwise I'd visit more often. In saying that it is definitely worth the visit.
