After living in Byron for a few month I was excited to finally come here and I really do wanted to love it! The setting is nice, the service was good, but the food was below average. We started of with the Aranchini-balls which were dry and very plain. As a main I had the vegetarian Pasta, the portion size... More

Went to this place for a special dinner and we were not disappointed. The food was out of this world. Not your usual Italian. It had a really different menu. The staff were very friendly. Some bigger groups dining there were a bit noisy. That was the only down side. Fantastic vibe and location.

Meals were good. Waitress was very helpful, especially when we discovered we had both left our glasses behind and couldn't read the menu! Atmosphere was okay but in hindsight we should have asked for another table as the restaurant wasn't busy - we were sat at a table so close to the bar it was quite noisy especially when the... More

At first we didn't think the restaurant was open (it was a Monday night) but we ventured down a short path and found it indeed was - the lighting is just rather subdued. We had the lasagne (as given an honourable mention in Lonely Planet) and very good it was too. Nice relaxed and intimate atmosphere. Good food and service.... More

Book the Italian for the reception at our wedding, I don't know where to start! All round perfection! The venue is just incredible- Sara and her team went above and beyond our expectations. Food is ridiculous lost count how many times we heard "jeezs that's the best thing I have ever eaten"! They really made sure our perfect day was... More

Ordered the Lamb Lasagne which was to die for. My wife had the risotto and was similarly impressed. Would certainly eat there again.

Ok so just because this place is called " the Italian " don't expect it refers to the food. Whilst there are pastas most Italians would leave feeling poorly represented. The food is modern Australian. More French inspired than Italian. The service modern Australian as well. Read sloppy and the heat and noise in the restaurant moves it closer to... More

We had high hopes for this eatery. It came highly recommended locally. The food was ok - arancini a little over cooked, pasta dishes ok, great cocktails and wine, but my 3 star grading is more about the atmosphere. Our meal was blighted by a group of 10 who were foul mouthed and loud, making for a very uncomfortable experience.... More
