How wrong can you be to order Margherita. Tasteless topped with canned tomato and dry herb. Seafood Pasta was ok. Great location and good service.

Enjoyed a great dinner at the Italian. We were in a group of 17 and the staff were very efficient bringing drinks, glasses, taking orders and delivering our delicious meals. I had the barramundi on a bed of rice, quinoa and baby spinach. The restaurant is in a great location with a view over the water. Some people might be... More

Was our 35th wedding anniversary and the bride wanted a seafood platter. Wasn't cheap and was good apart from the obviously recently defrosted lobster. Tail meat was ok but a soggy claw was crap and totally ruined the fruit underneath ! Wonderful friendly staff who provided more highlights than the food !!!
