We are a bunch of guys that meet weekly for lunch and expense is usually not a consideration. However value for money is. We always enjoy great entree's as shared plates. Then everyone orders their main course. Prawns calamari, anchovy& herb focaccia, Quail, all well presented and beautifully cooked and not overcooked. As a main course Three of us ordered... More

Working through the menu. Started with foccacia's, shared, then mains, sweets and coffee. Love the sticky date it's my favourite. BYO wine if you wish, service great, reasonably priced evening, booking wise as always a good crowd any night of the week

Had lunch there today. Really interesting dishes all which were good. They do a lunch deal but we ended up having 2 entres each instead. Really nice. Nice space and seating. Really top notch service. We did BYO which is great but their own wine list is very good. Definately be back. Must mention great coffee too.

Have been a few times. may be me, but the latest Menu lacked depth except for the Pizza's. We had one each of the same type and at the best it was good. A good Waitress would have recommended have a Large one and sharing? Overall, nothing outstanding was served, by a waitress that could have been happier and more... More

I thoroughly enjoyed a great meal at Di Palmas with about 25 high school friends for an impromptu reunion. The menu started with superb pesto platters and some of the best wood fired bruschetta I've ever had. We then had a choice from five main courses and three deserts. All the food was excellent as was the service. I haven't... More

We were with a friend on a walking frame and the young staff were exceptional in their attention in caring for her needs.The menu offered many choices and we all were very pleased with our meals, which were promptly served. It was a busy night with many families and groups, therefore a noisy atmosphere.

The last time we dined here, I was very impressed. Believe it or not....it has simply got better. Why I do not know.....maybe a new chef who has directions of his/her own....maybe a new manager imprinting his/her own style of overall presentation ? Anyway, we were most impressed with staff attentiveness, knowledge of the menu and bright cheery demeanour. The... More
