Description: Ioesco translates as ‘I am going out’, a fittingly momentous title for one of Gold Coast’s premier Italian restaurants, Ioesco - Cafe Cucina Bar. The likes of Gordon Ramsay have graced Ioesco’s stylish dining room, where sparkling chandeliers, a marble bar and water views are tempered by a relaxed vibe and alfresco seating in the tranquil Sanctuary Cove surrounds. Passionate and knowledgeable staff work the floor delivering contemporary interpretations of classic Napoli cuisine that, happily, don’t compromise on size or quality. Moreish starters such as duck breast with marsala mushroom cream sauce offer perfect preludes to mains like Barossa chicken breast with king prawns, avocado and garlic brandy cream sauce as well as spinach and buffalo ricotta ravioli with Napoli cream sauce.

My wife and I came here for my birthday dinner and we absolutely loved it! The food was delicious and filling, with everything made to perfection.

The service all round was excellent. Our waiter, Chiko, was both charming and attentive, a real highlight to our evening.

We loved coming here and would love to come back!

We didn’t book but the staff were friendly and fitted us in. At seating I was told they have gluten free pizzas but upon ordering was told by waiter they didn’t which I was a bit surprised at as so many restaurants now cater fo. You can get GF pasta as an option....which was delicious. Great wine selection which was moderately priced. Definitely recommend Ioesco as a great authentic Italian restaurant!

Fabulous food - calamaretti set the scene, tender, tasty. Rocket and pear Salad was generous and tasty. salmon with blank ink spaghetti, vodka capers cream was superb. Sea perch in a tomato ragout was very delicious as well. Staff were delightful - energetic, professional, enthusiastic. Best meal we had at the cove.

Polite service
Restaurant empty on a Sunday evening so I cannot comment on efficiency
Decent food, on a heavy side ( too much cream when not necessary)
Good variety of food and wine
Simple dining
The whole area dead by 10:00

We visit this restaurant at least every couple of months and are always well satisfied with the menu and staff. The dishes always meet or exceed expectations and the ambiance is perfect for fine dining in a resort atmosphere.
