Hi Team Unfortunately our experience wasn't as great as I was hoping. The anti pasta boards were my favourite with the most freshness and flavour. I was underwhelmed in the Merino lamb shoulder ragu. I felt it was tasteless and didn't have the wow factor I was expecting from the list of ingredients on the menu. The service was intermittent except for clearing our plates. We had no sooner eaten our mains when the dishes etc were whipped out from under us. The impression we got was we were to be gone. My other disappointment was the $30 surcharge to take a birthday cake. Why you ask? Supposedly we would not eat desserts if we were having a cake. Well guess what we didn't anyway. We almost cancelled our booking because of this surcharge. Would we go back? NO

Food and service were good, but it was quite loud; numerous times I had trouble understanding my wife who was sitting across from me.

We had a really lovely dinner. The staff were very knowledgeable about how the food was prepared and very accommodating, even encouraging us to stay and not feel we had to rush away. The food was excellently prepared and presented. The flavours were spot on. While we were quite satisfied with dinner, we went ahead and ordered dessert. Again beautifully presented and delicious. We'll certainly be back.

We dined on a public holiday and booked at a time towards the end of lunch service. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Food & drinks were served promptly and our dishes were as delicious as every previous time we dined here. Will be back again for sure!

I can honestly say that this was the best pizza I have ever eaten, there are secret ingredients in that sauce! The Risottos are also exceptional- we will be back very soon.

The servace was great. I do wish that there were a few more pasta options as well as a fee more entrees. Got the antipasto entree and was a bit dissapointed with the ratios on there., too many pickled things and not enough cheese. The atmosphere qaqas alright, a little noisey and felt a bit rushed though our meal
