This otherwise worthy cafe is consistently let down by its owner/manager. His behaviour towards customers and staff is at times appalling. He bullies staff openly and compromises what should be a destination cafe in Bowral. A great pity.

We had a great breakfast and tue gluten free options were good. The only fault would be no lactose free milk for the coffee, but we'll take our own next time. I would highly recommend for breakfast.

Definitely one of the best Italian restaurants in Bowral . We truly enjoyed the authentic Italian flavours . Sebastien the owner also greets and attends to all his customers . Would recommend to family and friends .

I think the staff should consider another job. Obviously the management is poor or non-existent.
